Boston Bruins' Tim Thomas Ends Media Session Due To White House Question

The Boston Bruins' first round playoff opponent was sure to draw revisited questions about Tim Thomas' political beliefs. But the Bruins goaltender made clear on Monday that he does not have to answer those questions.

According to CSNNE's Joe Haggerty, Thomas prematurely ended a media session after being asked whether his decision not to travel to the White House would gain traction again because the Bruins are meeting the Capitals in the playoffs.

Thomas made waves in January when he skipped a team trip to the White House to celebrate their 2011 Stanley Cup title. Citing concerns about the government growing too powerful, Thomas declined an invitation to join his teammates for their White House reception.

The Bruins and Capitals begin their opening-round 2012 NHL playoff series on Thursday at the TD Garden. Thomas, who played all 25 games during Boston's playoff run last year, figures to be well-worked in the postseason.
