"Thorny’s man enough, and I agree, he did cross the line. He got caught up in the emotions. There’s nobody that’s proud of what happened [Saturday] night, absolutely not. So, he’s going to suffer the consequences, and so will we.“But the one thing about Thorny is anybody that knows him personally knows that he’s a pretty honest player and a pretty honest person. And if he said that he really regretted it and felt bad, he really did. I support his comment because I know he’s being truthful to that."
- Bruins coach Claude Julien on Scott Thornton.
