Oh yeah and John Scott injured Shawn Thornton in a fight three minutes into this game (B's have no update on Thornton's status but have made an emergency call up which says it's probably not looking great).Benjo wrote:Sabres up 7-4 over the Bruins with 13 seconds left and Lindy Ruff calls a timeout

Musta felt great for the Sabres but two things I never understood about guys like John Scott who can barely take a regular shift.. on one side of the coin why does anyone engage him at all? Thornton would have been in tough just to hold his own, even he is a more usefull player than Scott so why not just let him skate around looking for a tilt and getting burned as long as nobody engages?
On the flip side, I don't get why Scott picks Thornton (beyond the fact that he's the only Bruin likely to go) - I could get behind the concept of carrying a thug like Scott in the lineup if he was apt to go all Gino Odjick on the players who actually have it coming, but is a buffoon like Milan Lucic really sitting on the bench thinking "wow he injured Thornton, guess I'll have to have a bit more respect for Miller the next time I have him in my sights"?
