Say What?!? - June 7

“The fans have always been awesome to me here. It was good to be back out there. I haven’t played in a week and a half. I was fairly excited to get into this one. It didn’t take too much. Usually I have five-six coffees. It didn’t take that much to get me going. I was pretty excited and I was fortunate enough to get the hit on the first shift. It kind of got me into the game.”

- Boston's Shawn Thornton, who was put back in the lineup in Game 3 for the first time since May 17.
