After what seems like a million years, the Boston Bruins are playing a game at home against the New Jersey Devils. Yes, they were slated to play on Monday but you should just blame COVID for that. Or the Devils all getting the COVID. Or the fact that no one seems to know how to prevent themselves from getting it and spreading it to others. You get it.
It’s not the like the NHL had the right idea before they initiated the Return to Play. It just seems like everyone forgot about all that since the pandemic has been going on for most of our adult lives. Wait, it’s only been since last March? It’s like a year of Marches.
Anyway, tonight Matt Grzelcyk and Jakub Zboril have been ruled out. John Moore will likely play beside Brandon Carlo on the second pairing and Connor Clifton will bring his own brand of hockey to the third pair with Kevan Miller.
Otherwise, we’re looking like everyone else is a go. Pasta next to Krejci, DeBrusk next to Bergeron, Craig Smith next to Coyle.
By the way, if you missed this last week, here’s the stand off between Marchy and Zibanejad.
