BostonBruins.com - Bruins’ Merlot Liner Shawn Thornton always has an honest, refreshing outlook on the game. Following Monday’s practice before the team hit the road for New York (where they are now preparing for Game Three tonight), he answered a variety of questions from reporters, on tonight’s expectations, his line chipping in, and the young guys showing poise on the back end, among others.

“The feeling is they’re probably going to be a desperate team in their own building for Game Three - we’re going to have to be a lot better than we were last game,” said Thornton. “We got the win, but we have some areas we can improve on, too.
