Scott is not just a strong human, he is huge and he can hurt. And his sole purpose of being on the ice is to hurt. I am sure if that was Foligno that dropped Thornton the Bruins would have dealt with it. Somebody would have paid the price. And not just Tuukka's GAA.

Scott is a different animal.
I was surprised that Ott basically was tame all game. Next two are in Buffalo,Ott and Kaleta will be running wild,Scott will be there to let them roam. How will the Bruins react?
Excellent point.

Some fans seem to think these players are mechanical toys who perform for their pleasure. These guys have families and real concerns about their own careers. Watching their premier fighter get pounded into the ice without getting off a punch and not able to return certainly puts a little trepidation in the thought process.
