10 March 2016- Hurricanes @ Bruins

So here we are, barely a week after the trade deadline and John Michael Liles’ former team is here for a visit! Bruins have had a pretty impressive run, albeit with some ugly wins of late- but finally we’re playing a weak opponent.

You know what that means!


…game.
Right you are Admiral Ackbar, right you are. Luckily we have General Calrissian manning the 4th line to help out!

 

They do indeed.

Bruins are coming off a killer goaltending duel in Tampa in which they won 1-0 in OT, and the Canes beat the sad, pathetic Sens (seriously guys, maybe give your most gifted goal scorer minutes that don’t involve Chris Neil, mmkay? 4-3 in the shootout, coming off of Jeff Skinner’s buzzer beater with 10 seconds left in regulation to tie the game (the second time he’s done that this season, which is nut. Bruins: how about we don’t let this happen, mmkay?)

Okay, some lines for alls y’alls:

Nothing to report here, can’t be messing with a good thing

Nice to see Kevlar skating, he looked none to happy after that Ovechkin hit, but looks like Kevlar and Trotman will be working with Randall to feed Neely Nachos.

(feel free to photoshop Zach Trotman’s head on Leia if you are a terrible human being)

And the the Birthday Sparkly BAMF looks to be in net.

Injuries and scratches: James Wisniewski (IR ACL), Justin Faulk (lower body), Andrej Nestrasil (fractured vertebra)

That forward lineup ain’t too great and super-awesome happy fun time defenseman Justin Faulk is out of the lineup. On the surface, I like the look of this.

But ignore Admiral Ackbar at your own risk kids!

Okay, lets drop the puck!
