Bruins dress Caron, scratch Thornton on Monday

7 Comments

The Boston Bruins tweaked their lineup for Monday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes, substituting Jordan Caron for Shawn Thornton.

It was a performance instead of injury-related move, as Thornton (pictured) is a healthy scratch tonight.

Neither forward has put up big numbers this year. Thornton, 36, has two goals in 19 games while Caron, 23, has one tally in nine contests.

This is a minor tweak, but some believe that Thornton is one of the league’s better fourth-line players, for whatever that’s worth.
