Jerry Thornton of Barstool Sports joined Mike and Tony to talk some New England Patriots and the World Series champion Red Sox. Finally, the guys discussed the 7-game suspension the NHL handed down to John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres for his head shot on Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson. Are 7-games enough?
