Here we go again: Isles at Bruins, Take Two.
The last time these two teams met, this happened:
I'm pretty sure somebody in the balcony just moaned "It's my birthday" which might honestly be the funniest analysis of a struggle.

(For those who don’t know, the full story is likely in the replies to that tweet.)
Yeah, Bruins got beat by a bad Islanders team, even after taking 50 SOG on Thomas Greiss. It was great to see ol’ friend Johnny Boychuk and we did welcome back our most recent ex, Dennis Seidenberg, with acclaim, the Bruins came out flat, Tuukka had a terrible game giving up 3 goals on 13 shots.
That’s not to say this will happen again since the Bruins have been playing better as of late.
