In Honor Of That Tough Bastid Shawn Thornton Returning To The Garden Tonight, Here Are His Greatest Moments In A Bruins Uniform.

It is going to be so friggin weird seeing Shawn Thornton face the Bruins tonight in a Panthers uniform.  The guy was the heart and soul of this team for a long time and will always be a Bruin to me, I don't care what uniform he wears.

Anyway, before I get too sentimental, here are some of his greatest moments as a Bruin:

That time he fought Dan Carcillo in the first ever fight at a Winter Classic:

That time he scored an end-to-end goal, cerka Bobby Orr:

That time he beat the shit out of Matt Cooke in Cooke's first game vs the Bruins after ending Marc Savard's career:

That time Zac Rinaldo leveled Johnny Boychuk and Shawn Thornton proceeded to beat the shit out of him:

Quite possibly the prettiest penalty shot in the history of the NHL:

That time he squirted that whiny bitch, PK Subban, in the face with water during garbage time of a playoff game and pissed off the entire city of Montreal:

That time he got jumped by six Canucks and sparked a brawl:

That time he told Dale Weise that he could, "pick the hand I beat the fuck out of you with:"

Then, of course, there was this:

I miss this guy so fucking much.
