Mark Recchi, Shawn Thornton Leading by Example During Stanley Cup Run


Mark Recchi and Shawn Thornton know a thing or two about playing on the big stage, and succeeding.

Recchi is the NHL’s active leader in playoff goals with 61 — a mark that also has him tied for 25th all-time. He has won two Stanley Cups in his career — with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006 — and continues to be a leader in the Bruins locker room throughout their Stanley Cup Final series with the Vancouver Canucks.

Thornton also has a Stanley Cup win under his belt. He hoisted the iconic trophy in 2007 with the Anaheim Ducks. While he spent some time this postseason as a healthy scratch, he continued to work hard and now has regained a spot in the Bruins’ lineup because of the energy and emotion that he brings to every shift.
