Tim Thomas didn’t join the rest of his team when they visited the White House and he didn’t join the rest of the Boston Bruins on the ice during their 5-3 loss to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.

It was Thomas’ decision not to join the team on their trip to the White House came down to him not believing in the federal government as it stands now. However, general manager Peter Chiarelli said Thomas not playing was not a punishment for Thomas’ boycott and that the team knew of Thomas’ plans for the last three months.

During the loss, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask started and made 22 saves.

It is not expected that Thomas’ decision to boycott the White Visit will play a negative role on the team’s chemistry despite disagreement about the situation. Although players have spoken about the situation and not all of them agree with what happened, they will move forward as a team and go about business on the ice, not allowing the incident to demoralize the team.
