Hey, if you don’t get too many goals you might as well take advantage of times like this. After the Winnipeg Jets miss a shot on goal, the puck goes soaring toward the blue line where the Bruins Shawn Thornton picks it up for a breakaway.
Thornton is known more for his penalty minutes than his goal scoring so it might have been better off if the Jets defense had just let him go. Instead, Thornton gets bugged enough that he can’t get a shot off and the ref calls for a penalty shot.
Given the extra chance, Shawn Thornton scores with a sick move on a shorthanded penalty shot against Ondrej Pavelec, his first career penalty shot attempt.
