Check out this amazing save by Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer on Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton. This is just how the last three games have gone for the Boston Bruins. Can't get a goal when they need one. Not burying the chances when they are presented to them.
Bruins bruiser Shawn Thornton knows his way around the TD Garden penalty box, but he certainly isn’t the only Bruin who calls the sin bin his home away from home.
Because the enforcer missed a handful of games earlier this season, his pugilistic pals had to step up things up in the physicality department and it appears as though ST22 won’t lead the Black and Gold in penalty minutes...
It is no secret that Shawn Thornton is the greatest man who ever lived. He does more in a day than most of us do in a year. Usually we only get to see him in action during games, but recently Shawn Thornton let us follow him around for a day so we could see what a typical day in his life was like.
It was awesome.

The Bruins forward not only spoke to the media following the game, but he also made an appearance on NHL Network. Thornton was asked about the game, the club’s dominance of Ontario teams and he even worked in some conversation about...
Fans just love an underdog.
For years Shawn Thornton toiled in hockey’s minor leagues. He was almost ready to hang up the skates when the Anaheim Ducks gave him an opportunity on their Stanley Cup-winning team, and just a few years later Thornton was earning a second ring with the Bruins. Likewise, his hard-nosed style of play — and willingness to mix it up with players who outmatch...
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...
