Shawn Thornton and Krys Barch are old friends, if friends were the type to beat each other’s faces in each time they met.
The two foes, who have a bit of a history together, squared off again on Tuesday night. It marked the sixth bout between the two tough guys, but this time the scorecards were clearly in favor of the Bruins’ enforcer. The marathon affair lasted a whopping minute and 17 seconds, with both fighters a little worse for the wear afterward.
Check out the fight in the video above, with NESN’s Jack Edwards providing the blow-by-blow of all the action.
