Bobby Robins First Fight as a Boston Bruin
Well that didn't take long...the Bruins replacement for the beloved Shawn Thorton didn't take long to get in the swing of things. As a lower cost and younger (barely) hockey "enforcer" Robins did exactly what you would want him to do after Flyer Zac Rinaldo had earlier gotten a roughing penalty and had taken a run at just returning from injury (and Bruin's lynchpin) Dennis Seidenberg. The fight itself was mostly a draw and no real blood was spilled...but it sets an appropriate tone and shows that though Thornton is now deservedly on an increased and two year contract with the Panthers that the Bruins haven't lost their tough side.
