Kessel is not useful in these games against bigger opponents. For the Bruins you need to shake their confidence by physically thumping them.
Scott fought Thornton in 3 minutes into the first period. No goals were scored until the 2nd period where the Bruins held a lead for most of the period. They fell apart in the 3rd. It was simply a bad game by the Bruins. Scott destroyed Thornton in the fight and the way it hurt the Bruins was that he was lost for the remainder of the game costing the B's the ability to role 4 lines which they love to do. They also lost Paille in that game. But that was at the end of the night. What I'm saying is the fight help the Sabres win but not in the way your trying to say.
