MVP. Gold-medalist. Leader. Underachiever. Those are just a few of the labels that Joe Thornton wears for better or for worse, but apparently we need to add “boxer” to the list as well. Check out this straight right he delivers to the chin of ‘Canes goalie Petr Mrazek.

And for those of you who are mad at Joe, he was in the right here. He dug at the puck right around the same time the whistle went, and Mrazek took exception and threw a slash his way. An eye for an eye, right? Nothing wrong there.
Joe Thornton merely reminded Petr Mrazek that nobody talks to Big Daddy Joe like that and gets away with it.
Take a seat, Petr.
