Shawn Thornton: Bruins Stanley Cup Auto
A card that has been posted here before but never had a post dedicated to it, a 2009-10 Be A Player Signatures #S-ST. Shawn Thornton had as much to do with the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup as any player despite only recording one point in the playoffs and being a healthy scratch for 7 games, including games 1 and 2 of the finals. Thornton replaced Tyler Seguin in Game 3 of the Finals with Boston down 2 games to none, and brought physical and energetic play that helped turn the series, with Boston winning 4 of the 5 games he played against Vancouver. This was Thornton's second time winning the Cup as he was a member of the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks Championship team.
