Rich Peverley Excited to Get Back to Hockey, Optimistic That Knee Injury Has Healed (Video)

It has been almost three months since Rich Peverley and the rest of the Bruins were eliminated by the Washington Capitals in overtime of Game 7 in their first-round playoff series. But the time for rest will soon be over — assuming the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association can work out a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement before the old one expires on Sept. 15. That means getting back to things like power-plays, face-offs and shootouts.

But Peverley participated in a different kind of shootout on Thursday, as he joined Shawn Thornton and several Bruins teammates in a penalty shootout with players from Liverpool Football Club. The Reds are in town to begin their North American tour, and they kicked things off with a friendly competition against the guys in black and gold.

NESN’s Naoko Funayama caught up with Peverley after the shootout to discuss his offseason so far and his plans as training camp approaches.
