Shawn Thornton joined Mike Felger on the set of CSNNE's Cross Check as he will do every episode, to talk a bit about the team to this point in the season.

The B's are finding ways to win, and doing a ton of damage in the third period. They're outscoring opponents 16-5 in that third period, and Thornton says confidence is a big reason why.

"Guys have been pretty confident in the room even going into the third, talking about we can still do this," he said. "Nobody is hanging their head. It's a berry positive energy in there and I think that's kind of helped going into the third periods, whether w're up or we're down. We kind of just keep pushing along and hopefully it works out. It has lately, it might not be like that all year, but it has lately."

Thornton admits that the power play has struggled this season - and the team can't even get credit for one when it looks like they do score - but that wins regardless of how are more important than stats.
