Good morning, everyone! When do we go on the road again?
Yesterday was the 36th anniversary of the Miracle On Ice game. While everyone knows Al Michaels’ famous game call in the final moments, there’s an interesting play-by-play by Curt Chaplin, one of ABC’s reporters. Cool story, and I think Chaplin did a better job overall of covering the game. You can go straight to the YouTube video here.

Idk what to call this thread now. 1C? not the 3rd?
Jesus does Gustavsson not know how to keep rebounds out of the slot? Why can’t the B’s handle their own in the 2nd period?
How much booze do we need to make this game better?
couldn’t get a B’s image posted to Getty reporters?
Well that felt a little more memorable as far as a B’s / Jackets game
goals from Jenner & Eriksson (still think it’s Krug’s goal) have this game knotted at 1.
How are we all feelin so far being back at home?
The Boston Bruins (32-21-6, 70pts) and Columbus Blue Jackets (23-29-7, 53pts) close out their regular season meetings tonight at the TD garden. Tonight is also “First Responder Night”. Let’s hope the Bruins are the first to respond with the goals tonight. The B’s are 2-0 against the Jackets, with wins in OT & the shootout.
The Bruins need to be better at home where they are 12-14-3 after returning from a successful 4-2 road trip. Columbus has lost their last two games and have not lost three straight
sense since 1/19 – 1/23.
Tonight’s Bruins lines
Hartnell – Wennberg – Saad
Jenner – Dubinksy – Atkinson
Calvert – Karlsson – Foligno
Rychel – Campbell – Bourque
Murray – Jones
Johnson – Savard
Tyutin – Prout

Was it really going to be anything else?

Good morning, everyone! The Bruins are back home tonight against the Blue Jackets after a successful road trip. Here’s hoping they can start converting some of that road success onto home ice!
NBC Sports had a couple of nice pieces during their Hockey Day In America coverage night. One is an interview with Denna Laing and her return to the ice in a wheelchair. The other is about Doc Emrick’s visit with his hockey broadcasting mentor. I highly recommend watching both.
The Maple Leafs got an early start to their fire sale, trading Shawn Matthias to Colorado for a fourth round pick and a minor league prospect. The Leafs currently have 12 draft picks in the 2016 Entry Draft, and the record is 13 in a 7-round draft. With plenty of pieces still for sale, expect the Leafs to blow past that record by the trade deadline.

Wow, I did not expect that to happen.
