Revenge Is Bittersweet For Bruins' Fans In Loss To Penguins

For the fans that wanted to see the Bruins exact revenge on Pittsburgh forward Matt Cooke for his nasty hit on Marc Savard, they came away satisfied thanks to Shawn Thornton. Other than that, there was not much to cheer about, says Stanley Cup of Chowder, SB Nation's Bruin blog.

Bruins fans got what they wanted to see: Shawn Thornton pounding Matt Cooke. What they didn't see was a strong effort from the hometown team. The B's were booed off the ice at the TD Garden tonight after a 3-0 loss to the Penguins in a lackluster effort that saw them record just 17 shots on goals.

To add insult to injury, the Bruins 1970 Stanley Cup champion team was honored in a pre-game ceremony and post-game reception.

I would love to be a fly on the wall and see the current team at this reception trying to put on a happy face for the fans that paid good money for tickets to the game and then a another $275 to go to the party.
