Joe Thornton scored a goal in the Panthers' 5-4 victory over the Capitals on Tuesday. He had one goal on one shot and added two hits in 11:42 of ice-time.
Father time is undefeated. Jumbo Joe in his age 42 season now has two goals and two assists in 12 games played. He should probably hang them up but just seems to keep finding gigs holding back a roster spot from someone who could excel. Thornton had his best season 20 years ago when he registered 127 points.
