Bruins dropped their first preseason game of the year. NBD.
Bruins were able to kill a 6-on-4 PP for the few seconds it happened (that's not a typo).
Great to see Shawn "Wayne" Thornton back on the ice. Don't be fooled. He could've scored on that slapshot if he wanted, but he felt like boosting MacDermid's confidence a bit and let him burry the rebound for a goal.
Also, let it be known that the first Bruins goal of the new season had #22 with the helper. When Twos brings home the Art Ross trophy at the end of the season, you can pinpoint this game as the start.
Sometimes you live in a place where you can't get NESN. Sometimes you're just too poor to get cable. Or maybe you want to hear Don Cherry talk between intermissions. We get it.

Bruins take on the Senators for their first preseason game of the year. Senators looked like an OHL-level team against the Maple Leafs earlier this week (maybe 'cause they were playing OHL-level players). We'll see what they throw out at Boston tonight.
Things to look for this preseason:
- Who takes over Mark Recchi's spot? Some people reading this blog probably don't remember an NHL without Recchi. This'll be their first taste at what it's like. Who takes over Rex's spot on the Bergy-Marchand line and who gets his 'A' will be something to look out for - Thomas vs. Rask. It was an issue last preseason and will be again. It'll be an annual thing until Thomas retires. - Benoit Pouliot. We want to like Benoit, so we can do as many Chris Benoit photoshops as possible. Question is: will he show Montreal they made a mistake in letting him go or will he end up like Ryder -- lots of potential but little to show for it. Also, will he and Jack Edwards kiss and make up?
Team DOY is still waiting for its season tickest to come in. Not sure what the deal is. We don't even have a ticket rep anymore. Bruins have screwed our ticket package up every year we've had season tickets three seasons back, so we're half-expecting something to have gone wrong with them... As long as this doesn't turn into another Shawn Thornton jersey fiasco we'll be stoked.
In short: Bruins fan relations suck. But their Opening Night tickets are fucking sweet.
There's a fresh sheet of ice at the TD Garden. Marchand has been spotted at less parties. Patrice Bergeron stopped nailing ten ladies a day and cut it down to five. Nathan Horton is smiling. The new season is almost upon us!
We've had rookie camps and now training camp. We're all eager to see our dear, dear Bruins raise that banner against the Flyers and start their season long title defense.
But there is one nagging subject you just can't escape these days. One nagging phrase that keeps popping up, spewed forth by almost every media member and bandwagon fan who just heard the phrase for the first time.
We are talking of course about the "Stanley Cup Hangover" topic. Quite frankly we're sick of it. Let the team play first. Look how they got their business done in the playoffs. One Cup wasn't enough. We are convinced this is a team that will be hungry again.
But as you know, we do things a bit differently here at Days of Y'Orr so we thought we'd indulge this talk of a Stanley Cup hangover the only way we know how.
Now, we present you with our latest project.
After the jump...... Stanley Cup Hangover certainly affects the Bruins........
Wearing no shirts, sunglasses in doors and being drunker than a fratboy is "in" for this year's fashion. Or so Brad Marchand, the Bruins, and the world found out recently since he landed a slot in Boston.com's 25 Most Stylish Bostonians. No joke.
His fashion advice:
"Most of the time, if I see something I like, I’ll try it on," said Marchand on his personal style. "And then, you know, I’ll see different styles in movies and stuff."
The movies, eh? He must've gotten his style from The Hangover.
His teammates reaction:
For the video imparied:
"We're trending to no shirt being stylish?" --A very concerned Andrew Ference
"I guess it's stylish to shave your chest and not have a shirt on... That's what Boston considers stylish." --An amused Shawn Thornton, trying his hardest to play it straight and not laugh
No wonder why Boston is named worst dressed. Brad Marchand is our leader in fashion. Somewhere Sean Avery is rolling his eyes.
We can only hope Kate Upton picks up on this topless fashion trend. Oh please god...

In other news Globe "ace" reporter, Old Man KPD has experienced new things this summer like the Internet and twitter. He might've even smiled for the first time in his life, but we won't put money on that. Now OMKPD, along with his battle against the evil bloggers in their mom's basements, is taking on the hoddie army.
Film at 6, 11? No one fucking uses film anymore. It's 2011, grandpa. Also, we're not paying for your online Boston Globe. Suck it.
BB.com have video of the newest ice girls.
Stoked to see Holly still in the fray. Apparently she's the token redhead. Maybe one day they'll add another redhead.
Maybe one of these days Team DOY can be "celebrity" judges. Who do we need to sleep with to make that happen?
There's gotta be few things less awkward for these girls in the try-outs than faking excitement while throwing shirts to the five people in the Garden staring at them. Must be how it feels for the Florida Panthers ice girls year round.
Today news broke about the NHL instituting a social media policy amongst it's organizations. This covers all players, coaches, GMs and organizational staff (such as public relations, etc) who use various social media networks to get their brand to the fans. Here's a small sample of the new policy:
"As per the new policy, there is a total "blackout period" on the use of social media on game days, which for players begins two hours prior to opening face-off and is not lifted until players have finished their post-game media obligations. The suggested blackout period for hockey operations staff is even longer, beginning at 11 a.m. on game days.
Also, the new policy makes it clear that players and club personnel will be be held responsible for their social communications in the same manner in which they are held responsible for other forms of public communications. As a result, discipline is possible for any social media statements that have or are designed to have an effect prejudicial to the welfare of the League, the game of hockey or a member club, or are publicly critical of officiating staff."
Patrice Purrgeron got wind of this policy and held a meeting in DOY Headquarters outlining his new policy for the four of us. Living in anarchy the past year has been good to Team DOY, but apparently Purrgeron is sick of our shit. From the all night benders to the Gears of War 3 talk that him and Justin have to sit through. He's pissed! Here's what he wrote.
