Concussion to sideline Thornton for 7-10 days

Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton will miss the next 7-10 days with a concussion, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced in a statement released by the team.

Thornton was injured during a fight with Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott at the 2:53 mark of the first period Thursday night. It was the only shift Thornton played in the game.

Thornton has played in all seven games for Boston this season and has one goal and 25 penalty minutes.
