Joe Thornton commented on his fight with the Blackhawks Jonathan Toews after Friday night's game.

"He asked me to fight, and I was kind of shocked, but said sure," Thornton said. "He hit me from behind. It wasn't anything serious, but he asked me to fight and I obliged." The days of Joe Thornton registering 100 penalty minutes are a distant memory, as proven by the fact Jumbo Joe had only been assessed one measly minor penalty prior to picking up seven PIM in Friday's clash with the Hawks.
