Thornton (illness) a game-time decision

ST. LOUIS, MO -- The Bruins were on the ice early Wednesday to get prepared for their game against the Blues, who stand as the only team in the NHL with a goals against average under 2.00 this season.

Shawn Thornton was the only player missing from the skate this morning, and will be a game-time decision because of an illness, according to the team. Carter Camper was a full participant for the second day in a row and could be in line for his first NHL start this evening.

Zdeno Chara led the post-skate stretch and it appears that Tim Thomas will get the start after being the first B's goalie off the ice following the skate.
