Let’s start this morning off the right way, with a Bergygram from the man himself at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.

Yes, Perfect Patrice is nominated yet again for the Selke Trophy as best defensive forward for the umpteenth time. A win would make him the owner of the most Selke wins since the award was created. He’s up against Ryan O’Reilly and Mark Stone for the trophy. We all know that neither of them need this award, no matter how good they were.
Bruins GM Don Sweeney is also nominated for General Manager of the Year. He’s up against Doug Armstrong (St. Louis Blues) and Don Waddell (Carolina Hurricanes). Seeing that he made an impressive set of moves at the trade deadline resulting in roster depth for a deep playoff run, he could edge out Doug Armstrong. We’ll have to see tonight.
If you watch tonight (I can’t imagine why you would) you might catch a glimpse of everyone’s favorite boyfren, Gritty. I’m sure he’s going to do something appropriately Grittyesque.

So, hopefully a couple of Bruins win tonight and we all win if Gritty does.
