Topic - Shawn Thornton
Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton said on Sunday that he will not contest a fine of more than $2,800 for squirting water from the bench at Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban in the final minute of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
For the first time in seven games, the Boston Bruins actually fell behind.
Should Shawn Thornton receive 10 games for slew footing Brooks Orpik and knocking him unconscious? More?
Marian Hossa is one of the Chicago Blackhawks' top scorers, with three game-winning goals already this postseason.
Hossa's surprise scratch from Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals — and the one-word explanation, "upper," for the part of his body that was injured — is part of a long-running cat-and-mouse game NHL teams play on the theory that any information about injuries is a competitive disadvantage.

This is a whole different series now.
Just about every whistle is bringing fisticuffs now.
There goes the shutout.
And the gloves are off.
Boston's collapse was one for the ages. The Flyers had a comeback for the history books.
"Once I turned around and got to the blue line, I saw there was a lot of ice," Thornton said.
Thornton said he got caught up in the moment.
