Shawn Thornton: Bruins ‘Did Me A Favor’ By Eliminating Tough Decision

Shawn Thornton thought he had a decision to make.

Boston Bruins on Paper: Thornton wants Bruins to "Just go"...

It's not quite time to break out the "Rocky" analogies - none of that "eye of the tiger" crap, no running up steps and bouncing around like a kangaroo on diet pills and no begging Mickey to cut open the swelling around his eye so he can see.And not just because 80's anthem music sucks, nor because marsupials have no use for weight loss supplements, nor...
