Thornton/By S. Bradley

Well, whoever was chirping from the Chicago bench at Bruins forward Shawn Thornton after he was cut by a skate blade March 29 at TD Garden better take some trash-talking lessons before attempting that act again.

Today referee Don Van Massenhoven revealed what he heard said as Thornton was bleeding and trying to leave the ice. Thornton received around 40 stitches for the cut.

As per ESPN Chicago:

“I heard someone say, ‘Get off the ice, get off the [expletive] ice,'” VanMassenhoven said. “I don’t know who said it.”

Wow. Not even a “yo momma” thrown in there. Well we might never know whose brilliant idea it was to chirp a bleeding player. But we know that person is even lamer than first thought.
