Two of the NHL's best dropped the gloves Saturday night.
You have to love the fights where the two combatants circle around and prep themselves like it's some sort of prize fight. Benn flipping his hair back was particularly amusing.
This might just be a case of a captain trying to spark his team, and if it is, it certainly worked. The Sharks have looked more energized and potent offensively since the fight. Thornton helped orchestrate a power play goal for San Jose, motioning for Patrick Marleau to position himself in front of the net on a face-off before winning the draw and setting up a point-blank goal for Marleau.
