Game Thread Bruins at Stars 2/20/16

The Bruins are in really, really, really southern Minnesota for their meeting with the Dallas Minnesota North Stars. Of Dallas. Both teams must just be lost. I can’t imagine this “Dallas” thing will last…
There’s a North Stars Alumni game coming up today, and Minnesota hockey fans are really confused.

Be it in Minnesota or Dallas (I get them confused) Tonight we get to see the Bruins’ semi-annual reunion with Bruins Alumnus Tyler Seguin.

Fortunately, Bruins fans quickly made their peace with that trade and have no regrets.

For those eager to discuss the Seguin trade, you may go here

This will be the final game of this road trip
With 191 goals for, the Stars are the most prolific scoring team in the NHL, and have the second highest PTS/GM in the league (behind the Caps). They are led by the top-line scoring duo of Seguin & Benn, the #3 & #4 goal scorers in the league.
Fortunately, the Bruins have done pretty well in scoring this year as well, with #5 goal scorer Brad Marchand actually scoring at a faster pace than Seguin or Benn.

Ryan Spooner is questionable due to illness. Based on the morning skate, the likely lineups tonight are:

    Projected Stars Lineups:

Jamie Benn – Tyler Seguin – Ales Hemsky
Mattias Janmark – Jason Spezza – Patrick Eaves
Antoine Roussel – Cody Eakin – Patrick Sharp
Valeri Nichushkin – Vernon Fiddler – Colton Sceviour

Alex Goligoski – John Klingberg
Johnny Oduya – Jordie Benn
Patrik Nemeth – Jason Demers

Kari Lehtonin

The Bruins started the season with the hottest power play in hockey, and the worst penalty kill. Things have reversed themselves since then. Since the All-Star break, the Bruins Power Play has gone 1 for 32, ranking them last in the league, while their Penalty Kill has improved to 83.42% for the year, ranking them as one of the best in the league, but since the break they have gone 25-32 which is below average. Still, the Bruins have snagged 6 of the 12 available points on this road trip, and have a chance to make it 8 points tonight.

Expect the Stars to attack the Bruins with speed. The current defensive lineup is not the fastest that the Bruins have iced this season, and have struggled against speedy attacking teams. As usual when facing Dallas, unless the Bruins can slow the game down, this could be a long night for the B’s.

Yeah, there are some whiskies I have forbidden myself from buying ’cause I know what happens to them.

This one might join that list…add the right amount of water and it’s silky and pretty. Typical melon, pear, and barley notes for an Irish whiskey, with hints of fruit and cocoa. Mmmm.

Satan81

It was! Tried a lot of really nice stuff. Bought a couple bottles and a mitt-full of samples. Met a whisky fan and hockey fan, and I’m gonna meet up with him at the Adler Mannheim game tomorrow.

NICE, that is awesome! Meeting new hockey/whiskey fans is fun. I hope the game goes well tomorrow.

Whiskey has some funny culture. At these fairs, you do see the higher end whiskey snobs, the people with money, etc. But you also get the hockey fans and the black metal fans. smile
