Bruins forward Shawn Thornton spoke to the media following the team's morning skate on Thursday. Asked if retribution would be in store for Penguins forward Matt Cooke, Thornton said: "There isn't going to be any, you can't. You guys keep talking and talking about it and I'm sure it's a good story and you guys are getting a lot of viewers for it, but at the end of the day it's a hockey game and we're a couple of points up in a playoff race that we need to get in to. The team's more important right now."

The Patriots have scheduled a private workout with Ohio State defensive end Thaddeus Gibson. The news, which was first reported by the National Football Post and confirmed Thursday by WEEI.com via a league source, indicates that New England has more than just a cursory interest in the 6-foot-2, 243-pounder, who figures to transition to outside linebacker at the professional level. Last season with the Buckeyes, he was second-team All-Big Ten Conference as he led the Buckeyes with 13 tackles for losses, and was second on the team with four sacks.

FOXBORO -- Patriots Pro Bowl safety Brandon Meriweather addressed the media at Gillette Stadium Thursday morning. During a discussion in which he touched on the Pats' first-round exit and Drew Brees' 371-yard, five-touchdown performance in Week 12 vs. New England, Meriweather pointed out that the negatives can only bring out more positive.
"You want to embrace that feeling so you can try your best not to feel like that again," Meriweather said of the down points in the 2009 season. "For me personally, I'm just trying to build on what I did last year. I don't want to stay the same. I don't want to have the exact same numbers, exact same stats, or [anything]. I want everything I do to be that much better."
