Tonight the Bruins take on the Pacific-leading Vancouver Canucks. Yeah, you read that right, Pacific-leading. The Bruins have yet to face them this year but are still cognizant of the hurting Vancouver put on them twice last season. This team is no joke.
After taking a game to heal on Saturday night, Danton Heinen returned to practice on Monday, splitting reps with Sean Kuraly on second line left wing. Cassidy said that Heinen seemed better yesterday than during Saturday morning’s skate but that he would make a decision on Heinen today after practice.
In related news, David Pastrnak, our adorable goal machine, shared a charitable endeavor that he, Kendall Coyle Schofield and Patrick Sharp had participated in during the All Star Break.
Excited to share the All Star Charity Shootout brewed by @dunkindonuts from All Star Weekend! @KendallCoyne and I participated on behalf of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation which provides the simple joys of childhood to kids battling hunger or illness.

Man, if Patrick Sharp only had to stand in front of a net and take shots like that, he could still play. Such rapid fire!
