The Bruins have taken a long break in-between games, but they'll make up for it with a big game in Montreal Thursday night.

Bruins winger and tough guy Shawn Thornton joined Gary Tanguay and Mike Felger on Sports Tonight to discuss the upcoming matchup.

The Habs have added some size and toughness in George Parros and Brandon Presley, and look to match the B's in that category better than they have in the past.

"I love it. I love the Montreal Canadiens - Bruins rivalry," Thornton said. "If you can't get up for this, you're in the wrong business. The fact they beefed up, it doesn't really matter to me whether that's happening or not. We kind of go out and play our game. If something needs to be taken care of, it's taken care of. I will say all three of those guys that they've brought in are pretty honest guys that go out and play the game hard. If something needs to be taken care of, it/s the same thing on the other side. It's not like there's a idiot out there trying to hurt people."
