This is the big problem I have with Thornton. Scott goes after Bergeron , later Lucic in a scrum with some Sabres, you know Scott will try to start something, no ? The next shift Scott goes on Thornton should be there !! Now Scott is in the box, their worse player and maybe in the whole NHL while the Bruins best defense and maybe best in the NHL has to sit that that waste !
I like Thorntons role, 4th liner and all BUT THAT HIS HIS JOB. do it !
CJ makes that call as to who goes on the ice. The KIL line was already out there. Once the puck was dropped. Someone came off for Scott to jump on who knew why he was being thrown out there. He went straight for Lucic & Scott got his glove or stick in Lucic eye & then Chara came over. You can't blame ST for this! That's looking for an excuse to blame him when he has no control of that situation. What's he supposed to do? Jump over the boards when he sees Scott?
This is stupid, should ST follow Scott down into the dressing room when he got his 12min penalty? Explain what you wanted him to do.
thank you smart a*s if you haven't followed SCOTT has been taking liberties on Bruins all season. There were plenty of times someone could send him a message. One example happned 5-7mins before in the Bruins end when Bergeron was clearing the puck out of his zone. Scott came late and fore-armed Bergeron, sent him flying backwards.
Blame the coaches if you want or Thornton for not making himself available at any point in the 1st or the first half of the 2nd. I blame ST because he hasn't come close to Scott ever since he got knocked down last season. Push and shoving does not count.
for the record I'm a fan of Thornton, what he brings to the 4th line and his role. Against the Sabres he's failed to do his job.
