Shawn Thornton of Bruins playing limited role
WILMINGTON — During intermissions, the Bruins’ workhorses use every bit of the 18-minute pauses to unwind and reload for the upcoming period.

So far, no such luxury has been available for Shawn Thornton.

While most of his teammates catch their breath, Thornton often rides a stationary bike between periods.

“With my skate guards on sometimes. Seriously. Whatever it takes,” Thornton said after Thursday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena. “It’s easier when you’re playing 10 minutes a night as opposed to five minutes a night. But we’re finding ways to get points and win most games. That’s most important.”


Bruins facing five straight road games
“It’s not going to be an easy road trip for all the obvious reasons,” Claude Julien said of the upcoming two-game segment. “Buffalo’s certainly going to want to bounce back from their loss to us less than a week ago. Winnipeg, our players have yet to win a game in that rink. It’s certainly a good challenge for us.”

Chris Kelly’s goal is to score .
“Of course I want to score. I’d be lying if I said ‘Oh, I don’t want to score.’ Everybody wants to score,” said Kelly yesterday as the team prepared to take off for tonight’s game in Buffalo. “But it makes things easier when the team is doing well, so if the team continues to do well and I don’t score, it is what it is. I’d like to help out.”

Jay Pandolfo excited to be the newest member of the Boston Bruins
It’s far from what most people would consider the perfect weekend getaway, but Jay Pandolfo couldn’t pack fast enough.

He might even have volunteered to fly to Buffalo and Winnipeg in the cargo hold with the baggage.

“The only trip I’ve been on so far was the last trip (also to Buffalo),” said Pandolfo, the newest, but also the oldest Bruin. “This is official. I start traveling, all that stuff.”


Bruins finally hit the road
A few years back when they were still in something of a developmental stage, the Bruins might have turned this into a full-fledged, 12-day trip, with a few days of sunshine in Florida and plenty of bonding.

That’s no longer necessary.

“This group hasn’t changed a whole lot over the last couple of years,” defenseman Andrew Ference said Thursday before the B’s left for Buffalo and Leg 1 of a five-game road segment. “It’s not like you have to try to get to know too many guys.”
