Star Trek: The Next Generation will always be one of my favorite TV shows. Lately, the Bruins have been reminding me of the episode Cause and Effect. In that episode, the Enterprise was caught in a time loop and keep repeating the same events that result in the Enterprise being destroyed. The Bruins also seem to be caught in a time loop as, once again, the Bruins are headed to another lackluster finish and could miss the playoffs for their third straight season.
So tonight, Bruins, take Commander Riker’s advice and decompress the main shuttle bay. Taking Data’s advice of using a tractor beam will only result in you being stuck in the time loop.
Khudobin will be making the start as Rask is day to day with a lower body injury.

Stafford – Krejci- Pastrnak

First off, let’s quickly recap last night:
Winning is fun! A trip to the Sunshine State brought the Bruins out of hibernation as they beat the Panthers 4-0. Continue reading
Scoring goals is fun and the Bruins did that three times!
We are scoreless after the first. We are also Liles-less after he left game after going in hard on the boards.
Hey Bruins, you see that picture of Pastrnak? He is scoring goals. Scoring goals is fun. The rest of you should get in on the fun and score goals. Scoring goals helps you win games and winning is fun! We all like winning!
Tonight the Bruins are in Ottawa for the first match of the season against the Senators. The Sens are coming off a 4-3 win over that gross team from Montreal while the Bruins are looking to rebound from their loss against St. Louis. Chara is day to day with a lower body injury. Julien has said he is doubtful Zee will play the next couple of games.
But it’s not all bad news, Pasta is returning to the lineup after missing the last two games due to injury. Kevan Miller is also close to a return, having been recently cleared to play. Claude said he is a gametime decision.
We also get to say hi to old friend, Chris Kelly.
