It’s opening night!
Yeah, there was some kinda hockey last night, but its not like that was a real game, right?
The Bruins opened up the NHL’s 2018-2019 season in Washington last night, and then… it all goes black.
So tonight they face the Buffalo Sabres in Buffalo for the Sabres home opener.
Let’s do some lines.
Tory Krug is still out with his foot in a walking boot, and we won’t see him for at least three weeks. That will put new acquisition John Moore in his spot on the defense. Coach Cassidy is expected to mix things up after last night’s cluster fruck and line rushes were a bit mixed. Anders Bjork is expected to step into the lineup.
