In previous years, the Bruins have formed an identity around the personnel of the fourth line. The identity began with the infamous 2011 Merlot Line with Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Shawn Thornton. The trio was a lethal fourth line that played in critical matchups, and they weren’t afraid to get in the … Keep Reading
From fights to big hits to penalty shot magic, Shawn Thornton defined his career as a fourth-line grinder who was idolized in Boston.
