Can Thornton Dominate

from the Salem News,
With the officials sticking to the league's new policy of actually calling the game the way the rulebook intended it to be, Thornton should be able to flourish. "The new rules make a guy like Thornton even more dangerous," said Devils' coach Larry Robinson. "He's got more room to operate behind the net and make things happen, and in (the shootout), with the moves he has, he's going to score almost every time." With his four points Saturday night, Thornton moved into third in the league in scoring with 17 points in just 10 games. In the six contests he's played since returning from an early season back injury, Thornton has 13 points.
