Shawn Thornton appreciation

Noticed a few people giving the Lucic/Miller incident credit for waking up the Bruins....I actually think credit needs to be given to Shawn Thornton as well. He had a shift pretty shortly after the Miller hit I think where he came out and just started jawing at every player who got in his way and you could clearly see the Sabres were scared ****less of him. Then for the rest of the game, every time there was a scrum he was getting right in there, not letting his teammates get in trouble.

I know people give him a hard time for having 'staged' fights and following the code maybe a little too closely, but when he is genuinely angry and just flat out screaming at opposing players he looks like a psychopath and I think genuinely throws the other team off their game, especially a team that has no one to answer the bell.

Anyway, just pointing out that he is 100% doing his job perfectly right now and I wouldn't want to lose him any time soon.
