Former Bruins enforcer Shawn Thornton is playing in his first game back at the TD Garden as a member of the Florida Panthers tonight.

During the first period, the Bruins payed tribute to Thornton, who spent seven seasons with Boston winning a Stanley Cup in 2011.

Thornton signed a two-year, $2.4 million contract with the Panthers in the summer.
