Watch: Thornton vs. Scott

Once Buffalo forward John Scott got a hold of Boston’s Shawn Thornton, it was all downhill from there Thursday night when the two fought during the Bruins-Sabres game.

Scott issued blow after blow to Thornton’s face, and quickly knocked the forward to the ice. It was a mismatch from the start — Scott is listed at 6-8, 270, Thornton 6-2, 217. Thornton left the game after serving his 5-minute fighting major in the penalty box and did not return.
