Shawn Thornton has made a living out of fighting, and more often than not, he’s been able to skate off with seemingly no damage. That changed Thursday night. Thornton left Thursday’s game with the Buffalo Sabres in the first period after fighting Buffalo’s John Scott in the first period and did not return. The Bruins announced Friday that Thornton has suffered a concussion. He is expected to miss 7-10 days. The 6-foot-8 Scott got the best of Thornton, pounding with some heavy right hands in a quick fight in front of the boards. Thornton served his major penalty for fighting in the penalty box, but he went straight to the locker room after the fight. Replays showed Thornton looking a little woozy following the fight. The Bruins called up forward Jamie Tardif from Providence on Friday morning on an emergency basis. He was set to practice with the B’s on Friday before traveling with the club to Toronto for Saturday’s game against the Maple Leafs.

    Is that all you got Mr. Perry is "Mister Orr dropped Scott a few weeks ago" pathetic.
    Just as pathetic as the 11-0 punch differential Mr. Scott had on the close to deceased in black & gold which included 2 upper cuts with the last one being the shot heard around the NHL hockey world.

    Plain and simple Mr. Scott dropped an atom bomb.

    You right it's time to bring in help for Mr Thornton, it's called a doctor.

    What was Thornton doing out there lined up against Mr Scott anyways? Mr. Julian had a sacrificial lamb named Mr. McDermid.
    Bad coaching decision, better yet pathetic.

    Just as pathetic as the 7-4 beating Mr. Vanek & Co. put on beantown team lighting the lamp 3 times with 2 helpers.
    The Bruins were lit up more than a pack of college students in the red light district on a Friday night.

    Let's give credit where credit's due, our head case goalie, as all goalies are, Mr Miller who made some psychotic saves at key moments of the game that kept us in the game.

    As Mr. Miller says "I don't care how many biscuits are in my basket as long as we win the game".

    My last rant is I'm sick & tired of reading whine after whine from bruins fans. That "B" on the jersey must stand for babies.
    Last night the baby was spanked by their daddies from Buffalo.
