Game Day Thread: Caps @ Bruins

Bruins vs Maple Leafs

The Bruins are back home, hosting the Washington Capitals on the 2nd night of a back to back.

After 19 games, the Bruins are at 12-3-4, which is good for 1st place in the Atlantic, (most recently beating the Leafs in their own house. BOOYAH!).

What will be the lineup tonight?

Well, Torey Krug, and a bunch of young forwards are injured. Krug was officially placed on IR on Saturday, and forward Paul Carey was called up.

Because Bergy has a lower body injury

Now, now… don’t panic

Urho Vaakanainen has been called up and the forward lines have been put in a blender. Charlie Coyle and Anders Bjork will play wing on the 2nd line, and Par Lindholm will center a rookie/prospect line. Trent Frederic has been called up from Providence to fill in.

Jaro Halak will be in goal tonight.

Brett Connolly, Devante Smith-Pelly, Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen are no longer with the team, but they brought in everybody’s favorite, Radko Gudas. Ummmm… yay?
Carl Hagelin is out due to injury. Richard Panik may be back in the lineup. Ilya Samsonov has been sent down to the AHL and Capitals brought up Travis Boyd and goaltender Vitek Vanecek.

I share a birthday with him. It sucks. Thankfully, that is balanced by also sharing birthday with Ronnie Lott.

Wilson has become a better player and is somewhat smarter about taking penalties… He’s still a jerk.
