He and Thornton jawed a bit while standing there, probably staging their fight less than 2 minutes into the game. Scott handled Thornton in that fight like my big brother handled me when we were kids...just kind of embarrased him while not even trying that hard. For the rest of the game...Lucic, Chara, etc.., none of them wanted anything to do with cheap stuff or having to answer to John Scott. The whole tone of the game was brought back to just skill on skill. Of course at the end, down by 3 Boston wanted to goon it up and set the tone for the re-match next week. Ruff smartly called timeout so he could get Scott back on the ice to neutralize Boston's enforcer (McDermott?). Puck drops, nothing happens, players go home... Boston fans and media whining after the game about their lack of a response to Thornton getting knocked out of the game and Ruff "disrespect" for calling timeout. Too funny. Love it. I love having a legit enforcer again. See you Saturday!
Any team that pisses off the Bruins is fine with me

The next Sabres-Bruin match will be greatly anticipated.

Me neither, you add one more weapon to your arsenal, basically.

Look at how Scott for Buffalo changed the course of the game by beating Thornton soundly. The Sabres had wings after that.

For sure. And the famous beating in Boston too. Those events are marked with red iron on my brain.

Ottawa beat the Habs how?They played their heavyweights Alfredsson & Karlsson.Now don't get me wrong I hate beat downs more than the next guy,Ottawa just does it right besides Neil and he scored to rub salt on an open sore.

The score was 0-0 when the fight happened, Buffalo then went 3-1 behind halfway through the second period. Not an awful lot of evidence that the fight in the first two minutes 'changed the course of the game' or made the Sabres 'grow wings' tbh...

All their big guys suddenly turned "soft" and they didn't have the guts to challenge Buffalo's big guy. Too funny. The Bruins fan reaction is arguably better than the actual on ice incidents.
Cheers to that!

And...maybe I love the Sabres 'cause they have lots of small, good, entertaining players that I like to watch, but...a team like the Bruins won't let them play hockey...they'll stop playing hockey when they feel they can't make a comeback and just start going after players (injuring them, fighting them)...and then the NHL doesn't do anything about it...it's almost as if the NHL wants teams to goon it up.

We were beating the **** out of the Bruins by playing hockey and Paciorety was HOT, and then...Bruins just went after our players and injured many of them (almost killed Pacioretty) and just bullied/beat up many small players (ex: Tom Pyatt).

I don't ever ever want to see the Bruins do this to us or any other team...ever ****ing again.

I respect Jacques Martin's Ghandi philosophy (really sincerely respect that), but...being a pacifist against the animal-Bruins just gets you injured, beat up, or almost killed (and the NHL just laughs at you after). Not sure Jacques Martin would have gone out there on ice to get beaten up by Bruin goons.

All this (Chara and Pacioretty) because of a ****ing shove (a shove to caveman Chara's pride).
(still don't know how Chara's wife/girlfriend sleeps with him...he must have the UGLIEST CAVEMAN FACE in the entire history of the NHL).

What was Martin suppose to do? Send who to fight? Gainey build that smurf team. And I will never understand how a guy, who was tough to play against and played on teams with the greatest of mix of skills and toughness didn't believe in building one himself.

I still am amazed many of you here are so opposed to one big heavyweight, like a John Scott, to be on the 4th line to be watching out for abuse taken against our skilled players. As if Armstrong and White are so much more valuable. What contributions do they make?
The proof is there fellows- no Sabres got injured or bullied after that fight. No last minute goon tactics even at home. Do you really want to see Max, Gally, PK, etc take on any of the Boston thugs? None of the Sabres skilled guys had to worry with Bug John out there.

I like Cody Beach but he's not a heavyweight in the pro ligue at this point.He have yet to fight a heavy in the ahl. He's not the answer for the moment but in a long run, he can become interesting. Luke Gazdic is a name that majority of peoples don't know but he's probably the best answer if you want to bring up a ahl tough guy who can play

At this point we might as well trade Eller for a goon. If someone is going to sit in the pressbox 75% of the time it might as well be someone who won't get messed up for it. So yeah, if that's the alternative **** it, why not.

Grinders grind. Their whole purpose is to wear down a line and let the skilled players rest. If you play a Cam Janssen all you're doing is putting your team in jeopardy of getting scored on.

I would be all for adding Ryan Clowe to the team for example because he has skill to back up his fists.

If only we had a heavyweight to go against Scott, this might be a closer game.
