Thursday I noticed this Getty Images photo from Anaheim-SJ on the front page of Yahoo NHL. Earl Sleek and friends hosted yours truely for a game at the Honda Center, and a familiar person popped up in the background of this shot.
Shawn Thornton is pictured in the midst of a long brawl with Ryane Clowe that took place in the second period. A full blow-by-blow recap is available from hockeyfights.com, or you can view this brief youtube clip of the first 30 seconds of the fight. The video ends before the refs stopped the action.
More on the game soon.
