98.5 The Sports Hub, the Shawn Thornton Foundation, the Bruins Foundation, and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center are teaming up for the 6th Annual “Cuts for a Cause” hosted by Fred Toucher and Rich Shertenlieb of the Toucher & Rich show.
Thornton joined Toucher & Rich to make the announcement about this year’s event, how this team has performed lately, the tight schedule and the injury to Chris Kelly.
The Bruins will play 17 games in the month of March and are in the middle of it now. What’s the hardest part of dealing with this schedule?
It’s been a bit of a grind. The playing everyday is not so bad, it’s the travel.”
“Your sleep patterns are kind of screwed up, but other than that I like playing every other day. I prefer that than going out and practicing.”
The guys talked about the blown lead against Pittsburgh and the win over Florida despite some bad play. Are guys just physically exhausted? Plus, Thornton’s thoughts on the hit that caused the injury to Chris Kelly.
