Chris Kelly Says Tim Thomas’ Decision to Not Attend Bruins’ White House Visit Didn’t Disrupt Day’s Festivities


The Bruins had a very eventful day on Monday, as they paid President Barack Obama a visit at the White House. But forward Chris Kelly still took some time to give NESN Daily a call in order to talk about the day's happenings.

Kelly said the White House visit was a special event, and he was very happy to share the experience with his teammates.

Tim Thomas elected to not attend the visit. While Kelly and the rest of the Bruins would have liked to have been able to share the experience with their netminder, Kelly said that they made sure they didn't let his decision take away from how special the occasion was.
