After nearly losing a man-bit, Patrick Thoresen is relieved to be recovering and nearing game-ready form. He reports that he was wearing a cup, a question some have raised, but a slapshot from Mike Green dented it and caught flesh due to Thoresen's prone position. After Paul Holmgren relayed the information that Thoresen may have suffered a ruptured testicle, and might lose it, we were happy to hear this wasn't the case. So will he dive to block a shot when he's cleared to play? You bet.
“Next time I get an opportunity to block a shot, I will be down
there again,” he said. “That’s my job. And that’s why I get the ice
time, too. I am sacrificing myself for the team and that’s what it is
all about, especially now in the playoffs.
you have that in the room --- that mentality of everyone sacrificing
for each other, you can go a long way. And that’s what we have here.”
Can't say I'd be able to make the same promise... Thoresen's
availability for tonight's game is not yet known, but there's
definitely a chance he'll play. We'll be there with cups on.
