Shawn Thornton, Martin Skrtel Team Up Against Rich Peverley, Joe Cole in Bruins-Liverpool Shootout (Video)


Shawn Thornton and Rich Peverley are intimidating forwards out on the ice for the Boston Bruins, but put the pair on a soccer field and suddenly they're not quite as threatening.

Well, that's exactly what happened on Monday as the two Stanley Cup champions teamed up with a couple of England's finest soccer stars in Martin Skrtel and Joe Cole of Liverpool FC. The foursome broke off into a couple of teams, seeking to come out victorious in the Liverpool-Bruins Penalty Shootout, presented by McDonald's.

Thornton and Skrtel made one tandem in the gauntlet as Team Thornton, while Peverley and Cole paired up as Team Peverley. The two sides took to the field at Harvard for a shootout of epic proportions, and the first round aired on Monday's NESN Daily.

Check the video above to see the two teams go head-to-head out on the pitch.
