Winslow Townson / USA TODAY Sports

Joe Thornton honored the late Jean Beliveau in his own way Thursday night. 

With a pair of assists in a win over the Minnesota Wild, Thornton leapfrogged the Montreal Canadiens icon on the NHL's all-time scoring list with his 1,220th point. 

A jumbo accomplishment indeed.
