After serving a 15-game suspension, Shawn Thornton will return to the lineup Saturday night when the Bruins take on the San Jose Sharks.
The B’s forward has been sidelined since Dec. 7 following his confrontation with Brooks Orpik, and the time away from the game hasn’t been easy for Thornton. After admitting that he couldn’t sleep when he was mulling over his decision to appeal his suspension or not, Thornton revealed that he is once again having sleepless nights — only this time they can be attributed to excitement.
Prior to Saturday’s game, Thornton couldn’t emphasize enough how happy he was to be returning to game action to hopefully give his team a much-needed boost.
