10:36 AM ET 12.12 | During the lockout, many NHL players are finding different ways to keep busy. Some have flown to Europe to play in a competitive environment, while others remain at home, skating daily and working out to stay in shape. Shawn Thornton of the Boston Bruins recently spent some time with the Boston Pops and recited one of the most famous Christmas poems -- 'Twas the night before Christmas. Thornton did a nice job and while he should likely stick to be an enforcer on the ice, his cameo gave us a chance to get creative and put a spin on the famous poem. Presenting the Shawn Thornton parody of "Twas the night before Christmas" fully dedicated to NHL lockout. Check it out at Causeway Crowd.
