Game Day Thread: Bruins at Islanders

In this first game of the new calendar year but the same old regular season, the Bruins are down in Brooklyn to take on the Islanders.

Remember Johnny Boychuk? Remember how much we loved him and how much we miss him? Well, you’ll have to miss him some more tonight because he is on IR and will be out until some other time when the Bruins won’t play against him. And we won’t see old pal Dennis Seidenberg because he seems to be on his last leg with the Islanders. Instead we’ll see the newest Isles prospect to be brought up, Sebastian Aho. Now I know what you’re thinking, is this the Sebastian Aho who plays RW for the Hurricanes? No, that guy is Finnish and only 20 years old. This one on the Isles is a Swedish 21-year-old defenseman. Imagine if they end up on the same team someday.

There are no surprises in the bruins lineup tonight. When you’re coming off a 5-0 thumping of the Senators, perhaps there isn’t much that needs tweaking.
