The Boston Bruins have now played 4 games in that past 8 days since beginning their season several days after many other teams. Despite a terrible game in Philadelphia, they have mostly resided in the win column with a record of 3-1. Despite commanding the scoresheet for most of the game yesterday (yeah, they played on a Sunday at 1pm, on a Patriots game day!) they managed to squeak out a win over the late-scoring San Jose Sharks. The Shark started out out 4-0 before meeting the Bruins in Boston. Let’s hope the B’s continue to knock down the winning teams.
Speaking of winning teams, the Bruins will be playing against two this week back-to-back: the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes. These two teams will probably prove to be the toughest challenge so far this season as both teams have perfect records so far. And the Bruins are a bit beat up: Nick Foligno has been moved to IR, Anton Blidh is injured, and Jack Studnicka and Oskar Steen were called up. John Moore was loaned to Providence to make room on the roster.
One of the teams that the Canes beat was the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs are starting out poorly, 0-5 until they played the lowly Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night, a game that the Habs managed to win. But, when they lost to the Canes last week, they got trolled really hard with a tweet and a special website.

Yep, clicking on it with reveal not only the subject of the first offer sheet in the war between the Hurricanes and Canadiens, Sebastian Aho, but also a sweet limited-time offer on Kotkaniemi and Aho shirseys.
You just love to see it.
