After suffering a concussion last week, the Bruins asked Shawn Thornton to settle down. So that’s when Gillette asked him to pucker up. The B’s enforcer, who has been shelved for a week, was invited to Gillette’s “Kiss and Tell” event on Wednesday in Boston while his teammates were preparing for a 2-1 win in Montreal. And what would a facial hair event be without a hockey player talking about the traditional playoff beard? Yahoo! Sports’ Puck Daddy broke the ice and asked Thornton what his wife thinks of the postseason face-fuzz phenomenon. “[She] loves the excitement, but not a fan of the old making out when I have a full beard,” he said. “But she’ll put up with it for a Stanley Cup ring, that’s for sure. “[Gillette] invited me down,” he said when asked of his involvement in the event. “[I] just finished doing some media. They took some photos of me because I’m so pretty. This is the last stop on the tour of 15 cities. I’ll be here to meet them and greet them. “Not a very s

Shawn Thornton Cleared for Contact, Hasn’t Received Word About Suiting Up for Saturday’s Game

Shawn Thornton is back. Sort of. The Bruins’ forward, who has been out for a week with a concussion, has been cleared for contact, according to the Boston Bruins. Despite being cleared to practice and for contact, he has yet to hear word if he’ll be suiting up on Saturday when the Bruins host the Tampa Bay Lightning. Fans interested in winning front-row “glass seats” to that...

Everyone and their mothers interviewing Shawn Thornton this week

  Welcome to the Shawn Thornton Mancrush Boston MSM. There's some room in the back seat where the dog pooped. Anyways, seems like everyone wants a piece of Shawn Thornton since he got concussed by John Two Left Feet Scott. Getting a concussion seems to be the best PR move Twos has ever done. DJ Bean asked Thornton about some folks saying Chara or Lucic shouldn'...

Tyler Seguin Looking Poised for Breakout After Finding Back of Net in ‘Northeaster’ Against Habs (Video)

Hopefully, Nemo isn’t the only storm about to hit Boston. Tyler Seguin has been overdue for a breakout in terms of goal scoring, and the floodgates might have begun to open on Wednesday night against the Canadiens. Despite playing well and at times appearing to be the best player on the ice for much of this season, Seguin had just one goal to show for his efforts — and an empty...

Tyler Seguin Steps Up When Bruins Need Him Most, Which Could Signal Beginning of Breakout

The Bruins were a complete mess offensively through two periods in Montreal on Wednesday night. Shorthanded and beaten up, the Bruins trailed 1-0 after two and gave no reason to believe they would leave Montreal with a goal, let alone two points. Claude Julien changed up his lines, and it paid off in a big way. That’s thanks in large part to Tyler Seguin, who wasted no time getting acclimated ...

Bruins Come Back To Beat Habs, 2-1, Behind Rask, Seguin

Tyler Seguin celebrates after scoring the tying goal in the third period of Boston’s comeback win over Montreal. For the 718th time in the last 88 years, the Boston Bruins faced off against the Montreal Canadiens last night at the Bell Centre. In the latest addition of the NHL’s most storied rivalry, two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference were at their best, but it was...

Tim Thomas traded to Islanders

The Boston Bruins have traded goalie Tim Thomas to the New York Islanders. Thomas, who helped the Bruins win the Stanley Cup in 2011, 

Bruins take sole possession of 1st place

Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2:05 of the third period Wednesday night, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens. The victory moved the Bruins (7-1-1) into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal (6-3-0) from taking over the division lead. P.K. Subban scored his first of the season...

Bruins Once Again Find Way to Win, Assert Selves Against Montreal in Northeast Division

The Bruins had no business winning a hockey game Wednesday night — at least that’s what the first 40 minutes told us. Or to put it another way, the B’s played the role of “les incompetents” through two periods in Montreal. Boston was sloppy, lethargic and, quite frankly, uninspired through two periods in Montreal for their first meeting of the season with their storied...

Big Bad Bruins?

Line brawl against the Dallas Stars in 2011. Where was this tenacity against the Sabres last Thursday? In order to play at their highest level and be successful, the Big Bad Bruins must be just that, a big, tough, physical team that their opponents fear.  As fans, we have been accustomed to seeing this in recent years as the Bruins are loaded with tough physical players who aren’t...

Which Injured Bruins Player’s Absence Will Have the Biggest Impact Against Montreal?

The Bruins might have an edge in the standings as they play Montreal on Wednesday night, but the Canadiens should have a clear edge when it come to the trainer’s table. Boston will be without Brad Marchand, Daniel Paille and Shawn Thornton as they head to the Bell Centre, after a slew of injuries has beset the B’s. Marchand traveled with the team, and even participated with the...

Ty Anderson: Take Five: Bruins beat Habs, move atop East

Despite downing the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada this past Saturday, the Boston Bruins entered the lion’s den known as the Bell Centre at far less than 100 percent. Coming into play without the services of Danny Paille (eye), Brad Marchand (upper-body), and Shawn Thornton (concussion), a Boston squad featuring an entire line of Providence players (Lane MacDermid...

The Causeway Saints Are Back In Action. BRUINS WIN!

Last night it took the Bruins a third period line change for the magic to happen. Claude, doing very un-Claude-like things, switched Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton before the puck dropped for the third period and saw his newly established first line of Lucic-Krejci-Seguin score 2 goals in about 3 minutes. The change seemed to spark both lines, as Horton was able to also rifle off...

Bruins, Celtics Invade and Conquer Canada

Both the Bruins and the Celtics were North of the border last night, and both came away with victories. The Bruins got a terrific performance from Tuukka Rask, who withstood an early pelleting from the Montreal Canadiens and the Bruins got third period goals from Tyler Seguin and David Krejci for a 2-1 win over their rivals. The Bruins improved to 7-1-1 on the season. Meanwhile,...
