Joe Thornton vs. Jonathan Toews. In a hockey fight. Let me repeat that for you. Joe Thornton vs. Jonathan Toews in a hockey fight. How rare is that? IT’S REAL F-ING RARE. 

Toews had, until last night, just two fights in the NHL. TWO. Let me repeat, Jonathan Toews had just two fights in the NHL until last night when he instigated Joe Thornton (his NHL fight card).

Both are captains.

According to the Chicago Tribune:

“I felt that it was something I needed to do to stand up for myself,” Toews said afterward. “I’m glad I did it. I think it helped our team and we got the win so that’s the important thing. If it gives your team energy, that’s great. That’s the effect … you’re really trying to impose on your team.”

The Blackhawks beat San Jose, 4-1, and the boys went out for a cold one after the game. Just another night in the NHL.
