Oh yay, the Bruins get to play the Flames in Calgary tonight. Am I the only one who wishes they could play some other, any other, team tonight in Calgary.
Whenever I think of Cowtown, I remember how Barry Pederson pronounces the name – Cal-Gary; his emphasis is the second syllable rather than the first and it drives me nuts.
Anyway, back to the game. Fluto Shizawa tweeted about something he never dreamed he would see.
Never dreamed I would see a Matt Bartkowski-Dennis Wideman pairing.

That’s right, old friends Matt Bartkowski and Dennis Wideman are teaming up as a defensive pairing. How fun! To add to the ex-Bruins on the ice, “Hi, I’m Chad Johnson” is minding the net for Calgary tonight because Brian Elliott is sick.
And no, I’m not doing anything regarding a certain narrative for this game because fuck that shit.
