Tonight the Boston Bruins play their second game of a back to back. This one takes them to Vegas to take on the Golden Knights for the first time. How excited am I for this game? Very excited.
The Bruins are coming off a 6-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes last night. Zdeno Chara had himself a good night. The Captain led the charge against Arizona, notching a goal and two assists for a three point night. We also saw the first NHL goal for Anders Bjork. Congrats, kid!
Congrats on the first of many for this stud! https://t.co/l9EXNfyxUK

The Golden Knights are looking to rebound from their first ever loss at the hands of the Red Wings, losing 6-3 Friday night. However, Lady Luck as dealt them a bad hand this weekend with Fleury, Marchessault, and Haula all being placed on the injured reserved list.
Shipachyov, Tuch, and Lagace have all been brought up for the Chicago Wolves to join the Knights of the Round Circle and it seems old friend Malcolm Subban could see a bunch of playing time while Fleury out. At least the Bruins won’t have to worry about their pants straps.
