Game Thread Bruins at Red Wings 2/14/16

Ahhhh…Love.

L’amour.
Láska.
die Liebe.
Kärleken.
Rakkaus.

It’s apparent I love Google Translate.

Valentine’s Day is that special day, where you can look into the eyes of that special someone, maybe share a laugh, and think about the history the two of you share.

This reminds me of a poem:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
The Red Wings’ Smith
Is still Worst Smith.

The Bruins have won the last two meetings these teams have had and have started off their road trip on a pretty solid note. The game will be on NBC, so I’m sure we’ll get an earful about Sidney Crosby one way or another, too.

Anyway, let’s get this thread started.

Happy Discounted Boxed Chocolate Eve, everyone!

Game Thread Bruins at Wild 2/13/16

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! (At least from where I’m sitting, anyway.) The Bruins hope to continue their winning ways when they face the Wild this morning afternoon at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Luckily for the Bruins, the Wild are neither excelling nor showing any energy at this point in the season, having gone 1-7-2 in their last 10. Yikes.

The last time the Bruins and Wild played each other, the Bruins won 4-2 and Loui Eriksson scored a hat trick. That was pretty sweet.

Burning questions for this game:

  1. Which Bruins team is going to show up this morning afternoon?
  2. Why do I keep forgetting how to pronounce “Parise”?
  3. Which is more fun to say: Nino Niederreiter or Jyrki Jokipakka?
  4. If the Bruins…I don’t know…just casually borrowed Marco Scandella after the game, and just…you know…casually took him on the rest of this road trip, how long would it take for the Wild to notice?

Anyways. grab your favorite beverage of choice and let’s watch some hockey.
