MONTREAL – They’ve only tangled once in the NHL when George Parros nailed Marc Savard with a clean, big hit in a game the Anaheim Ducks played at TD Garden on Feb.
WILMINGTON. Mass. – During Shawn Thornton’s time with the Bruins, he has very rarely been a healthy scratch while carving out a key enforcer’s role on the NHL’s best fourth line.
The Bruins have taken a long break in-between games, but they'll make up for it with a big game in Montreal Thursday night.
Not surprisingly, there aren't a lot of positives in a 6-1 thrashing on the Joe Louis Arena ice at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings.
