Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli spoke with Toucher & Rich about the team’s recent play as the playoffs near.

They also discussed Mark Recchi’s comment that he’ll retire if the Bruins win the Stanley Cup this year. Has he said this before and why would he say this now?

Did the shutout win over the Chicago Blackhawks seal Tim Thomas winning the Vezina Trophy this season? How will they handle Thomas heading into the playoffs? Is he better prepared than other number one goalies because he has played less games than most?

They also talked about Shawn Thornton receiving 40 stitches after catching a skate to his head. Will he be wearing a visor and what did someone on the Chicago bench say to upset Thornton as he went off the ice?

They also discussed the importance of these last few regular season games. Is it more important to rest the veterans or enter the playoffs on a hot streak?
