Nope. No. Zero 2nd period sir.
A goal by Landon “Billy Dee Williams” Ferraro puts the Bruins up 1-0. Liking that Acciari is getting PK time in his first NHL game too.
How we all doin so far?
Marchand, layin’ down on the job as always
The Boston Bruins (34-23-6 74pts) take on the Calgary
Hamiltons Flames (26-32-4 56pts) tonight at the TD garden, their second match up of the season. Boston begins the final stretch of the season adding Lee Stempniak and John Michael Liles at the deadline. Calgary moved Kris Russel and David Jones at the deadline and acquired Jyrki Jokipakka, Brett Pollock, and Niklas Backstrom. Also Calgary parted ways with Jiri Hudler and Markus Grandlund. Calgary has lost 5 straight games and 2-7-1 in their last 10. Bruins are 6-4-0 in their last 10 and are looking to rebound from the 4-1 beating from Tampa, boy does that all sound familiar huh?

What’s on tap tonight!
That was a lot like the Rapture. Especially the part where nothing happens. Except if the Rapture really happened, then the wretched souls left behind would have no idea that anything happened. Are we doomed to a Purgatory of low-ball trade offers and first round exits? Or are we secure in knowing that nothing really happened and that life will go on as…er…wait…uh oh.
Soooooo yeah…What’s on tap?
HAPPY TRADE DEADLINE DAY!!!!
Is Loui gonna get traded? Will the Leafs break the record for most picks in one entry draft? Will Drouin get traded? Will the Bruins re-sign Loui? Will Edmonton trade Yakupov? Will the Habs trade Eller? Will Anaheim finally enter the trading fray? Are the Tree Cat Head Things in or are they out? Will the Bruins hold onto Loui as an “own rental”? Can the Bruins finally acquire the defense they’re looking for? Are other Bruins roster players in the trade mix? Will the TSN llama make an appearance? Will I get any work done today?
