We just got in from shoveling our cars out of three feet of snow and we're a bit pooped, so this preview might be lame.
Bruins are the lucky ones being in warm and sunny Florida. We're stuck in cold and snowy Boston. Whatevs.
Bruins are coming off an emotional win against the Thrashers. Now we'll get to see if that emotion carries over to multiple games. Good news for Boston is that Lucic wasn't suspended for his sucker punch on Meyer, so he'll suit up. Marchand's on the ice this morning for the Bs, so he might suit up. Stuart gets his cast off later this week.
So the Bruins are getting healthy bodies back in the line-up. Always a bonus.
Quotes from last game:
Thornton on wanting to get the hat trick…
“What kind of, of course I wanted it. How bad do you think I wanted it? That’s the first question you’re coming with? I wanted it very bad.”
Ference on the line brawl…
“Well, you never know. When you have tough guys like Savvy out there you never know what could happen. [Laughter] What, it’s true! So, he likes to talk about that Dallas game a while ago, so he was itching, I think, for a little fun.”
We stole those quotes from Black and Gold Blog. Check 'em out!
