Go out there and and do what they always expected to do. Do you think it Shawn Thornton and if you if you had to pick one player can do it to be in a game seven that. That have to win a game winner take all which Shawn -- a year ago. I'll definitely no question. Is that's a broad domain. Because goodness. You know how to bring it to the table. So they're front. Prediction. Bruins total won't. -- -- toward four goals. Yes. The one of them and the our backs Mike Napoli first baseman Boston Red Sox here heading in the game seven Canadians Bruins. When you look at the Canadians Bruins matchup. Game seven what's the thing that makes you most terrorists if you were Bruins. Most nervous. Probably. If you euthanized. On zone. But -- -- they're good team. -- -- -- -- It's comical to see the robbery. Two teams so that's a -- -- that's a rarity you just said you understand hockey and and I -- and I don't think I think a lot of guys have already asked the question to. Understand hockey but the answer the questions so I'll take my question the next level which is how do you beat Carey Price. Score more goals in this currency is. Perfect persona so so -- in my last question is would be fair to say he has some power play Eagles via. That's the key to score some power for the Eagles agreement the one. Last question. Peace is if you if you do the poll the Red Sox clubhouse which Shawn Thornton would be considered the best player -- -- history in -- John thorn probably is a solid and knows our -- There -- Red Sox bench coach tour Lavelle. And breaking down the big game Bruins Canadians game seven Torre. Are you concerned. That the Bruins have not been able to take advantage of the seeming weak spot in the upper half the net I'm Carey Price. Season is he's been spin on his head so I still put my money and Tuukka. When you go to a game seven. There's a lot of jitters. What does the warning cliche that you would tell all the Bruins. I have been under their helmets as they have in the current. Leave it all out there. Where. On the ice are candidates won a -- you'd make sure you stay on the field. Last question is do you think that the Bruins made a mistake. Way and they did not trade for there -- at the trade deadline. -- the Tom's manic fan -- sniper great hands great score. I'll always say that upper management. Of these fine organizations. Always know what's best for their team so they didn't pick him up I'm sure there's a very good reason. Will that be the last time you say -- guys' patience. This year. Like I threw that in there because it's very very. Hockey to me your pick. Bruins and Shawn Thornton never bet against them. If sharp thorn and if you took the pole pole the Red Sox players. Which are important come out as the best players in the NHL. Without a doubt -- Craig prison earlier. We're just to know once again. -- some key questions from the big game tomorrow night in Boston. Bruins Canadians and now. Craig you're going to a game seven -- and Canadians. What is the best cliche could possibly depart on them. -- -- -- -- a lot on the tennis. There's there's no game -- so when ago. Now there's been a lot of fun shock throughout the series ago Carey Price the Montreal goal but he can go high go -- -- You're coming down the breakaway -- just. Think if you can he can get the the puck past him and into the back of the net any predictions article. If you had to pick one key. In this team so Bruins Canadians what would think the team that scores more is gonna win. Perfect thank -- for time Jackie Bradley here. Going Bruins means game seven and -- very excited. What's the best cliche you can throw out heading into a game -- Winner takes off. That's a good one that's a good one. -- that does it doesn't if you are going if you are you if you were to sit down -- you'd be playing this game tomorrow so you'll have the chance to watch the Bruins Canadians. If you if someone said. You're gonna watch the Bruins -- -- tomorrow what will be the highlight of watching that game. Shoot out. She does a pretty interesting our watching the Olympics in -- team USA. I think who is this cute out it was against Russia. That I was pretty exciting and the same guy shot. Everything the time for USA. -- last question is. Does the Canadians power play concerned. Patent the idea. Even what we -- talking about but I'm gonna say knows. Because over the Bruins perfect. Here is David Ross answering questions from Bruins fans about the big game seven. David the first question is today is the fact it Carey Price has not been able to be top shelf. The last few games concern it. Yet no it doesn't concern mix I don't know anything on the top shelf is and alcohol that the -- and alcohol for me hum. But I am rooting for the Bruins I know that I know ball Boston is a became a huge fan after last year watching them. Go to the finals so I definitely any debt that energy back in Boston so I hope they hope they put off. When you went to -- if to say that you were going to go to game seven. With the Bruins Canadians. What would be the highlight of you going and I understand that you know you're not sitting with a riff Raff. You're not valid a comment stroke. -- what would be the highlight in you can -- you can say you know of that that the thrill of hockey but he can also be realistic about what that brought that whole scene is like. Well I I I actually just enjoy I would get a chance to go last year two game three of the first one in Boston and I just remember the excitement. The place went crazy. The flag the Bruins flag pastor on the crowd that anthem was crazy. It was loud there were some some choice words spoken from the groups behind me get you know the -- was pretty cool. Who's intense and how is they whine and you know trying to kind of -- like their goalie it's kind of like the catcher you know means I can relate to Tuukka Rask and and I had his Jersey on and and just fired up man I mean the one thing it's addicting now Boston is -- -- there in love with every sport it's in Boston and and I I was I was addicted right away those sounds like basically you're you're gonna say whichever goalie has the best painted face mask may have the upper hand yeah I I. I hope that the coolest thing about hockey is that fights in the painted face -- having this be honest and and the intensity has -- those guys are animals. Thank you Hewitt Hewitt per day in -- Bruins fans demand that you answer some questions if you could do about game seven coming up. First question is are you concerned. That. Carey Price. The Montreal Canadian goalie might actually have the bruins' number upon. That is of the utmost concern. But game seven anything can happen. To be sure you know not lead on net. Knowledge that does does the everything can happen Credo does that carry over to all games sevens. For sure you know we're there to throw the kitchen sink at us. Recruit kids instinctive and on hope ray -- deceased Oakland. You will be at the -- okay good. That's you know obviously close on on the bruins' side and everything. So anything can happen even report in. Which concerns you more in the fourth line pairings of the Bruins or the fourth line pairings of the Canadians. I don't know what that means but definitely the fourth line pairings. But the Canadians. And the selling wine and cheese pairings. I guess hopefully we get the right one very -- if you did the whole French Canadian -- the pitcher mark if you will the I thank you very much.
