Good morning, everyone! What a weird and wild weekend of hockey. First the Bruins caused the Tree Cat Head Things to fire their coach. Then Marchand scored against the Red Wings 8 seconds into the game, setting a franchise record for scoring the fastest goal. But then the Magic Man, Pavel Datsyuk, reached the 900-point plateau and the B’s ended up losing a wild one not against the Wild, 6-5.

What’s on tap?

The Bruins made amends for their horrific loss against the Kings on Tuesday with a fighty, shooty, QUOTA scorefest. Perfect Patrice was 2/3 of the way to a Gordie Howe Hat Trick. Rinaldo and Marchand also played “punchyface” with Jets players. Tuukka Rask made lots of saves. Brett “Dog Years” Connolly had 3 assists! I was so excited that I couldn’t pick just one picture to embed!

Anyway, how are you on this beautiful post-Bruins-win morning?

Are you ready for the grand opening this weekend?

The driver checks the mirror seven minutes late
The crowded riders’ restlessness enunciates
The Guess Who suck, the Jets were lousy anyway
The same mood every day
And in the turning lane
Someone’s stalled again
He’s talking to himself
And hears the price of gas repeat his phrase
“I hate Winnipeg…”
-The Weakerthans

Hope the morning is going well. Win tonight.

Good morning, everyone! Big game tonight with Looch’s return to Boston with the Kings. He wrote a nice letter to Boston for The Players’ Tribune, which is well worth the read.

If the Bruins are looking for defensive help at the trade deadline, options appear to be thinning. Jonas Brodin and Matt Dumba had been mentioned in trade rumors, but with Brodin out 3-6 weeks with a broken foot, the Wild are less likely to trade a d-man for offensive help. Kevin Shattenkirk of the Blues has been rumored to be on the trading block, but with Alex Pietrangelo now out for at least three weeks, the Blues’ attempts to get Jonathan Drouin or *cough* other offensive help *cough* may be on hold. We can also put the arguments about trading for Dustin Byfuglien to rest as he just signed a big extension with the Jets.
