Game Day Thread – Game 9: Bruins at Panthers

The Bruins are making like a snowbird and heading to Florida.

The Black & Gold are coming off of a hard earned win against the streaking Red Wings in Detroit. Tuukka Rask is back in action, and seemed to be in good form against the Wings, notching a shutout. The B’s won, 1-0.

The Panthers are one point ahead of the Bruins in the standings – one loser point, as their record is 4-4-1, and the Bruins’ is 4-4-0. The Fancy Cats, however, are 3-1-0 at home in the Litter Box.

The Panthers lines will likely be something like this, but the internet is not helping me, so confirmation is lacking:

Marchessault – Barkov – Jagr
Sceviour – Trocheck – Smith
McCann – Malgin – Harper
MacKenzie – McKegg – Thornton

Yandle – Ekblad
Kampfer – Demers
Pysyk – Petrovic

The Jagr is going to try to devour some souls tonight. Saint Patrice will not allow it.

The Bruins’ forward lines can be expected to be something like this, but who knows, since everyone is hurt and I have no idea what’s happening these days:


*Speaking of everyone being hurt, Saint Patrice Bergeron will be a game time decision. Apparently he has other, more important saintly things on his agenda tonight.

With that, the Bruins made an emergency call-up:

…And, the defense:


Rask was first off the ice, and likely will be in net this evening.

David Backes is still out after elbow surgery last week.

We will, however, get to see Jaromir Jagr, which will be well worth the price of admission. Or cable. Whatever it is you’re paying for.

FUN FACTS:

Panthers and bears don’t usually fight, but tonight it’s happening.

Three whole shots on goal for the Bs this period. The FancyCats had 13.

That was terrible, but at least we have the lead.

Thank the Hockey Gods for small miracles! Then pray to them for big ones – like an effective PP, PK & 5v5 D. Oh, and a consistent 60-minute effort. Please Hockey Gods, can we have that this year?

It’s just inexcusably awful. Of course this whole period has been Boston barely holding on.

They need to go like 10 in a row to even get to average.

30th-ranked power play, you say? Allowing 2 short-handed shots on goal is pretty bad, guys.
