Game Thread: Bruins at Blues 4/1/16

Happy April Fools’ Day!

The Bruins are in St. Louis tonight to take on the surging Blues. Things haven’t been so great in Bruinland these days, as we dropped our last game to the Devils, who are out out of the playoff picture completely. Wouldn’t it be nice if the Blues thought this game was an April Fools’ prank and stayed home? Those are two points I know I’d be happy with.

Everything is a mystery. The Bruins had an optional morning skate. Most of the guys who you think “Hey, he might need some practice” showed up for practice. Some other guys did not. What will the lines look like? It’s a crapshoot.




PUCK DROP: 8:00
Find the game on NESN or the Sports Hub.

It’d be great if the Bruins could get a little closer to punching their ticket to the postseason.
