Shawn Thornton ‘Definitely Looking Forward’ to Returning to Lineup, Says ‘It’s Been a Long Five Weeks’ (Video)

After dropping four of their last six games, the Bruins could certainly use a spark and Shawn Thornton is hoping to provide just that in San Jose on Saturday night.

The Bruins forward is finally eligible to return to the ice following his 15-game suspension for the Dec. 7 incident at the Garden involving Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. The veteran is ready to put the suspension behind him and bring some much-needed energy to a team that has struggled mightily in its first two games on the West Coast.

Check out Thornton talking about his anticipated return in the above video.
