Good morning, everyone! Despite having the night off, the Bruins’ odds of making the playoffs improved last night with losses to New Jersey and Carolina. The Flyers are still in the playoff bubble mix after a possibly season-saving save of the season by Michael Neuvirth.
Carolina’s loss sets up a great opportunity for the Bruins tonight when they visit the Canes. A win tonight would further the playoff push, hurt the Canes’ playoff chances, and make it more likely that the Bruins leave Carolina with John-Michael Liles on the team plane.
For the third and final time this season, the Bruins invited the Penguins over to Netflix and Phil
Oh yeah, and I guess some other dudes. Including some upstart kid named Crosby. You may have heard of him if you follow hockey closely.
Good morning, everyone! We can win at home? We swept the season series with the Penguins? Always something different with this team. Nice to start the morning with a win!

Our favourite play-by-play guy may not be calling the game on air but he is on the Twittermachine.
What else is there to say?
So, this game starts at 7:30pm because of The Night You Love to Hate™ “Rivalry Night on NBCSNPDQASAPOMGWTFBBQ”. Yes, this is such a natural rivalry, this Penguins and Bruins matchup. Is it like Fashion Police where we’ll ask each other who wore it better? I mean C’MON both teams wear versions of black and gold, with only one being the true Black & Gold™.
Anyway, the Bruins hope to sweep the last game of the intraconference series against the Penguins at home at the TD Garden tonight. Both teams are vying for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with each sitting in the Wild Card (Bruins in 7th, Penguins in 8th) with only two points separating them. So, this game is actually pretty important. The Bruins are a disappointing 12-15-3 at home which isn’t encouraging expectations of a win tonight. Then again, it’s the Penguins who the B’s seem to know how to handle.
Good morning, everyone! The Bruins go for the season sweep of the Penguins tonight. Maybe the Bruins can wear their white jerseys tonight in the hopes of changing their home luck.
Much Habenfreude yesterday, as the Canadiens’ Twitter celebration went awry.
