Bruins forward Shawn Thornton, who is among the Bruins who developed a friendship with Carr, said he is glad the hockey team has brought the city some happiness. But he said he is not entirely comfortable with the idea that a Stanley Cup championship would somehow diminish the damage done by the attacks.

It's good "if this takes the people's minds off, but it's tough to talk about," he said. "Just to put that into the same perspective as a hockey game, I think isn't right, either."

Which is why the Bruins say they are going to focus on beating the Blackhawks.

"For those couple hours that games are on, we want to make sure we play our best. And we can be inspirational," forward Brad Marchand said. "We're where we want to be, and hopefully we can do the rest for the city."
