Game Day Thread: Oilers at Bruins

Connor McDavid makes his first ever visit to the TD Garden tonight. You may remember that when the Oilers last rolled into town in December of 2015, during McJesus’ rookie season, he was sidelined with a clavicle injury.

Tonight, the Bruins will be without David Backes as he still recovers from his concussion. He’s close but won’t be ready for tonight.

In tribute to Milt Schmidt, a 15 was painted at both ends of the ice behind the net and his banner was lowered over the ice.

It should be a fairly emotional night for the team and it’s fans.

With less offensive ability, but he’s totally an agitator, yeah

According to nhl’s gamecenter infographic, there’s stuff going on in the game, but no one’s on the ice.

Maybe Jimmy Hayes was sitting on the bench when he hit Gryba?

If Jimmy Hayes hits Eric Gryba on an empty sheet of ice, did it really happen?

Do you guys think Landeskog cures what ails us? I don’t know.

He might help with our scoring problem. Depends on whether or not his slumpy season can be cured by a change of scenery.

Weirdly, the obvious trade chip — Ryan Spooner — is having a better season than Landeskog.

Avs friend of mine said the Avs and B’s discussed a trade for Landeskog. Avs asked for Carlo, B’s said no. B’s offered Zboril, Avs said no.

All the info on this rumor came from Dater, so you’re both hearing the same stuff.

Landeskog seems like an odd target to me, but maybe the B’s thought they could take advantage of Avs’ desperation.

Am I accidentally flagging posts?

Nope. It pops up a form so you can say why you flagged it, (then it sends an email to admins) so you’d know.
