First off, BGG has Part 2 of "The NHL's Most Punchable Faces" post. Be sure to read Part I by us.
Bruins and Lightning are tied for second place in the East. Winner takes it tonight. Tampa's 5-3-2 in last 10; Boston's 7-3-0. Not bad.
Tampa's goal differential is pretty horrid for a second-placed team. Maybe it's because things like this happen:
Bruins also scored eight goals that game. That's the type of shenanigans you get when Mike Smith is in net. It's also when Savard made his comeback debut in Boston.
Marc Savard returned and the Bruins celebrated in grand style. They forgot they played hockey and scored a touchdown. Then gave Tampa Bay the finger and went for the two point conversion. They drove one Lightning goalie from the net and embarrassed the other. They held Stamkos pointless. They held St. Louis pointless.Sadface. We miss Savvy.
Kalman's going to be hosting a live chat event during the game. We'll probably log in. We're going to try to not ruin this happy even for him. We fear the Kal-Man Clutch.

- Looks like Corneilius over at HockeyBlogAdventure is updating regularly again. This is good. We approve.
- Chia-pet makes the Bruins legit Cup contenders.
- Wicked Good Sports: Screw ESPN's 3D. CSN presents CSN4D!
- Trevor Gillies is retarded. That's the only reason he'd do this the same night he comes back from a 9-game suspension.
- Shawn Thornton talks about being in the latest DKM video. He shoots whiskey with cute girls and Lucic gets pelted by snowballs.
- Haggs talks about Chis "Terrorist" Kelly's work ethic and hard playing.
