BOSTON (CBS) – Well, so much for showing support for the other hometown teams. A few Bruins players are catching flack for wearing Red Sox hats during interviews.

The NHL has told players like Shawn Thornton, Michael Ryder and Chris Kelly to stop wearing their Sox hats during their TV interviews.

The reasoning behind the demand appears to have something to do with garnering publicity for the league.
