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.

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”.

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,...
LEGACY OF BRUTALITY

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...
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.
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....
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.

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...
