Bruins vs. Ducks Game Thread

Does anyone remember the last game the Ducks and Bruins played? Me neither.

Hello!

So nice of you to stay up with me and watch this game.

On second thought, thank you for commiserating with me as the carnage unfolds.

Nah, just kidding. Kind of.

Here are the lines as seen at this morning’s skate:

Would you say no to this face?

It’s also a kind of important game for Karl’s Dad Matt Beleskey, former Duck. A quick Google search of “Karl Beleskey” pulled up more images of Matt Beleskey rocking a mullet and not his own dog, and thankfully none of Karl wearing a mullet. I think I will save those images for another time.

Too bad, cause a win here would have leap-frogged them (leapt-frog?) back into first place, over the Panthers who had the amazing luck to play the Habs so late in the season.

So he probably WON’T be playing tonight, but I’m writing this thingy so here’s a picture of him just because I can.

Hello! It’s a Tuesday night, we’re all feeling the effects of Daylight Savings Time, and games on this leg will end up literally spanning two days for most of you Bruins fans. But NOT ME! And that’s why I will be here, possibly typing into an abyss, as the Bruins kick off their West Coast Road Trip, or as some people like to call it, “The East Coast Bias Hyperawareness Tour.” FUN!
