Expect 4th Liner Shawn Thornton Dropping the Gloves This Season   Saturday night the garden was bumping and so were the B's as they showed New York who's home they were in with a 3-1 victory.  In the first period the Bruins got an early powerplay but couldn't convert, but on a streak to the net, forward David Krejci ripped a shot bouncing of Henrik Lundqvist's pads right into the stick of Milan Lucic who hammered it home.  In the second Gregory Campbell shot a puck through traffic which found its way to the back of the net as it bounced off Daniel Paille's stick and bounced off Lundquist's back landing beyond the goal line. The Bruins were up 2-0.  The Rangers quickly answered back as Brad Richards shot a bullet through traffic as Rask was screened.  Towards the end of the second the first blood was drawn as Shawn Thornton and Mike Rupp dropped the gloves, a clear victory by Thornton. Just moments later Gregory Campbell and Stu Bickle decided to take matters into their own hands
