Shawn Thornton has not fought since suffering a concussion January 31
You know me I've got a long running thing where I like to get -- enjoyable but for rolling the four lines of playing that fourth line in. He got it certainly got a lot of ice time over the years but it seems you. In particular this year. Ice time down a little bit you know whats up with that. No I mean I think controls my effort out there go out and try Harden you don't. The situation calls for it then now play more on him last couple games on the road. More -- -- -- only thing we have we had a line meeting before the for the game lacks in everything was. You know positive and I think that's. Couple penalties one drop and then you know those my two line he's -- and then. Get back to get away another three or four minutes before your back up again I think all that's factored in. But. You know like induces trying given reverently I got when I'm out there and hopefully things -- worked out as soon as we get into this a tough grind. -- -- the -- issue we've been now I don't know how long it's benefit then now since the concussion really that you've gotten into a fight is that just because an -- said yes. Yeah yeah a little bit I mean that there hasn't really been any need sorts out of late tonight there's no one really that were lined up Sidon. I think. You know what they they come in at -- -- they come in bunches and -- had hit a few weeks coming up in -- -- I don't have a chance keep them on cell. I'm not too worried about it it's not as nothing to do with. My head or anything it's just really has presented itself -- myself equator superior. Lose who we all say pretty much the same thing so well as both you know like you and your day would you want to along without fighting did you get. I don't know how to stay fresh in the fighting game if you weren't quite I don't think you manufacturer we can you you know you're in you can. Go into a game thinking have I got to get after this -- in my head or but most of the time it just it happens and it's spontaneous. And you let it ride and if you're if you start force and I. You know I think you run into trouble so it's on what -- -- -- to stay just a fresh. Not during the season island in my box in the season. I've been doing it for a long time at that this my fifty or sixty the year during and I'm I'm not too worried about losing its. After taking a few weeks off and it comes back pretty quickly bilateral security and hurt.
