Let’s be honest here. The 6-foot-8 John Scott absolutely pummeled 6-foot-2 Shawn Thornton during the Sabres’ win over the Bruins on Thursday.
As a consequence, Thornton suffered a concussion and will miss at least the next seven to 10 days. So, the Bruins will have to march on without one of their key physical presences, but the players like Gregory Campbell and Zdeno Chara, as well as head coach Claude Julien sound prepared to take on the challenge.
Check out Naoko Funayama‘s report for NESN Daily in the video above.

This fight left Shawn Thornton with a concussion
Shawn Thornton is out for awhile with a concussion. It was shocking given the state of hockey, where concussions are recorded in the injury report as the mysterious “upper body injury”. Is it a bum shoulder or perhaps a hurt psyche? The fans will never know, only that it is in the upper half of the human body. Shawn Thornton is...
LEGACY OF BRUTALITY
John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres laid an absolute beat-down on the Bruins Shawn Thornton in last nights game. Scott and Thornton, both known enforcers, didn’t wait long to drop the gloves for this one and got down to business moments after the face off. The fight was over in less than :10 seconds but the damage was done. Scott landed 7-9 pretty solid blows while Thornton couldn’t...

The Sabres John Scott is 6'8" and 270 and plays about 3:30 minutes a hockey game and has no other value other than he's a goon, some might refer to him as an insurance policy.
On the other hand, Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton is a role player that sticks up for his teammates and is also known to chip in goals. Thornton definitely took one for the team here....
BOSTON — The anticipation and the build-up leading into Thursday night’s Bruins-Sabres game was undeniable. Much of that surrounded the possibility of some hand-to-hand combat between two increasingly bitter rivals.
However, not much came of that, aside from one quick first-period scrap that might leave the Bruins without one of their toughest players moving forward.
Bruins Enforcer Shawn Thornton Failed to Return to Game Action After His Fight in the Early goings of Thursday's game
Not only did the Bruins get beat up on the scoreboard last night, but they also got beat up physically. Thornton, Paille, Bergeron and Hamilton all sustained injuries last night, however Bergeron and Hamilton were able to return to action.
Earlier this morning...
Shawn Thornton didn't look so good after taking a beating from John Scott last night. Bruins should give Twos a ******* purple heart medal for that and everything else he's done for the team. And the Bruins are now announcing that Thornton is out for the next 7-10 days with a concussion.
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter...
Awful. Just awful. We didn't expect the Bruins to go undefeated obviously but damn that was awful. If the Maple Leafs scouts only saw that game, not even they would trade for any of the Bruins defense. That game was the worst thing I've watched since Pearl Harbor. By comparison, Pearl Harbor is one of the greatest films of our time. I am too mad at the Bruins defense to even...
- Earlier today the Boston Bruins announced Shawn Thornton will miss 7-10 days due to a concussion suffered last night. How do they know that, is it a 'minor' concussion, maybe a 'small' concussion?
- Reading different websites the last few days, many Blues fans feel it is their time. Well my suggestion to them is to ask the Sharks, Canucks and last year's Predators...
The Bruins are coming off of a tough lose to the Buffalo Sabres 7-4. A game in which the Bruins played as bad defensively as they ever have. Lapses in defense gave up many break aways and two on ones. Irresponsible play by forwards and mistakes is what led to the break aways. The worst part of the lose was when Thornton got pumbled in a fight against John Scott and now Thornton is...
