OK, so that’s Halak right there in an awkward position, and we all know that as he’s out for about six weeks, Greiss is going to be the one starting in net today. Right now I’m banking on our Fine Finnish Friend, Tuukka Rask (sorry Kemp) getting the start in net for Boston.
Oh, wait, we have more news coming in:
Today, #NHLBruins Julien said Kevan Miller is a game time decision.

Anyway. Here we go with a manatee game. At home. Warming up in these jerseys

This could be a recipe for something ugly. At least the warm-up jerseys, anyway, point to that. The Bruins are actually now just one game below .500 at home, and are 6-2-2 in their last 10 games. They may be becoming their strongest just when they need it the most, heading down the home stretch. Knock wood, of course.
Speaking of heading down the home stretch, if you feel like making a day out of watching hockey, the Florida Panthers (a.k.a Bruins South) will be playing the Flyers tonight at 7 p.m. Boston leads the Panthers by just one point in the division, and I think I’d rather see them play the Pens first in the playoffs than the Bolts.
OK. I’m done yammering for now. What’s on tap?
