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.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
