Hitting The Links: Don't Call It A Losing Streak Edition


Shawn Thornton was questioned about the Bruins losing two games in a row last night and how he felt about being on a losing streak. His response? "A streak is three, so." Fantastic! There's no losing streak here.

Shawn Thornton's word is law. Don't call it a losing streak until they lose to Columbus tomorrow, which hopefully won't happen.

After the jump, Andy Sutton doesn't get away with being a jerk, Mark Messier will play in the winter classic, and Paul Bissonnette is in the holiday spirit...
