Orpik hit on Eriksson and the Thornton hit on Orpik: Both are terrible

USA TODAY Sports

So Brooks Orpik hit Loui Eriksson, taking him out for the remainder of the game; then, James Neal kneed Brad Marchand in the head:

And this is how Shawn Thornton retaliated to the Orpik hit.

This is so atypical of Shawn Thornton and it is really upsetting. The pace of the game has been awful since the hit; Bruins players aren't finishing their checks, and Tuukka Rask looks like he wants to murder someone.

Looks like you got the response you wanted, MSM. There's no place for this garbage in this game.
