Paille and Thornton aren't making the trip. Definitely out.
Ryan Spooner would take Marchand's spot if he does end up scratched.
You guys can think we're dirty all you want, doesn't make it true.
Should be a good one.
Whoops - I mistyped. Meant to say Thornton was out, not Horton!
As to the rest of your post, it was probably aimed more at other people than me since, as stated, I don't consider Boston to be a dirty team as a whole. Marchand can be outright dirty, IMO; Lucic reacts without thinking and can be accused of stupidity more than dirtiness; Thornton is your go-to guy for fights, which is a separate category. He'll fight you but won't injure you. But aside from those examples, as I said, playing aggressive is not the same as playing dirty. I wouldn't classify a Boston/Montreal game as 'dirty'. It's become a meaningless cliche, just like accusing Montreal of 'diving'. Easy insults, but simply not true for the most part.
