Short preview today as the Days of Y'Orr crew is busy prepping a few projects and busting chops.
Not sure if you guys heard but the Bruins collapsed against the Flyers last year. We get it every hockey writer ever. We get it. Find a new story line please.
Boston may not be able to play tonight, as police are still investigating assault and molestation charges levied against the Bruins by Ottawa. Our dear Bruins are coming off two wins in a row, a come from behind in Pittsburgh and a 6-0 demolition of the terrible, terrible Senators.
Patrice Bergeron is on fire. He's every where. We're hoping he makes Boucher's life hell tonight.
Lucic isn't playing. He's out with an upper body injury. Fans and media everywhere are bitching about this vague "upper body injury" thing like we're entitled to know. Not sure it will make things better if you know or not, but hey different strokes for different folks.
Tonight is Jody Shelley's first game against the Bruins since boarding McQuaid. He's had other instances of cheap shit since. Maybe Thornton will punch him out. Then again, being a terrible, borderline AHL player is probably punishment enough.
After the jump.....
It is not hard to get up for games against the Flyers. As much as we hate to admit it, they do have a lot of talent on that team when they're not gooning it up. Surprise surprise their coach makes them focus more on skill than cheap shots and they're near the top of the East all season. Who would've thought, huh? We got several nasty emails after our last Flyers recap saying we should quick making fun of Mike Richards and the Flyers. We're sorry. Here, let us dig through the vaults and offering this old picture as an olive branch.
Huge, huge game tonight. Will Bruins rise up to the challenge, or wilt under the pressure? Business time bitches.

Remember Carey Price's douchey gangster pose after beating the Penguins last week? Fleury returns the favor.
Campbell, not Bergeron, Bruins
