Believe it or not, the Boston Bruins will play only their second scheduled game of the new season tonight. While most teams have played at least two games already and one team has already played five all on the road (hello, Kraken), the Bruins are a little bit behind. They had ten days off prior to the start of the season and then 4 before tonight’s game in Grittydelphia, so we’ll see how rusty or too well-rested they seem tonight.
Yes, we’ll probably see Gritty which is always a delight.
Jeremy Swayman gets the start again tonight. Bruce Cassidy says that Linus Ullmark will mind the net on Friday in Buffalo. In some ways it will be cool for him to start against his old team, which at this point is 3-0. But we know Buffalo; they usually do great in the first two weeks of the season before falling in the standings.
Tonight’s game is a 7:30pm start on TNT in the States.
