No Johnny Boychuk last night. Sadfaces were a-plenty at Days of Y'Orr HQ. Purrgeron nearly shot himself (not really). Boychuk's still considered DTD. Defense could definitely use his presence and the power play could definitely use his booming slapshot. We could use more epic interviews or blog entries from him.
Bruins win last night improves them to 7-1-0 on the road. Goddamn Road Warriors.
On the flip side, the Bruins are a poor-ass 3-4-1 at the Garden. WTF?
Big story line is fan-favorite Dennis Wideman returns to Boston. Last time the Bruins-Cats met, Wideman scored a goal on Boston -- a zing of a "Remember me, assholes?" to all the fans watching back home. Should be interesting to see how he reacts tonight. He'll probably will continue to hear boos. But:
1) Has he grown enough man balls to let it not hurt his delicate feelings, or...
2) Has he finally grown accustomed to boos in Boston that he just will tune it out?
It's been suggested that the Bruins create a special chant just for good ol' Wideman should Greg Campbell or Nathan Horton score.
Not all are on board with this idea.
From our buddy Cornelius over at The Hockey Blog Adventures:
Last year's top playoff scorer for the Bruins (Wideman) is going to get booed and it's going to be stupid. Kinda hope he gets a hat trick in a 4-3 Bruins win, honestly.
We're torn. We were all set to give Wideman a clean slate this season until Chiarelli pulled the trigger and dealt him to hockey purgatory for Hort and Soup (one of PC's better transactions). But at the same time Wideman had the mental strength of a gnat last season and sometimes being a dick is fun.
Wideman gave fans that outlet last year. Maybe he'll take the heat off Wheeler for at least one night.
After the jump... we check in on Lucic's stache, projected roster, game day links and a PSA video of serious and epic proportions... Add a comment
