Hitting The Links: Shawn Thornton Appreciation Life Edition

The looks on these fans' faces should tell you everything.

We all love Shawn Thornton, that's not even a question. But on nights like last night, it becomes incredibly apparent why. I mean, really.

In the last 19 years, only six Bruins players had converted on the penalty shot. Probably none of those were shorthanded, though I could be wrong. One was by Ray Bourque, another by Jason Allison, and another by the inimitable Marco Sturm. Now, unbelievably, our fourth line grit-and-guts player gets to add his name to the pile.

So cool. So today, it's all about Sugar Shawn. Deal with it.

Bruins News:

  • Shawn Thornton yells at a Vancouver columnist that hey, no one in Vancouver actually likes anyways. [CSN]
  • Shawn Thornton fights, as usual. Everyone prays that he doesn't severely injure former BFF Mark Stuart. (did this fight seem sort of half-hearted to anyone else? Stu didn't really look like he was trying...) [Youtube]
  • AND THE GOAL. Amazing, flawless, etc. [Youtube]
  • In case you forget or have never seen it, make sure you check out Things Shawn Thornton Has Said. (on twitter: @thorntonsays) [tumblr]
