Between here and everywhere.
Let's face it. The Bruins are going to spend the majority of the season in contention for the #1 overall pick in the 2019 Draft, and I am ALL IN on Jack Hughes.

He'll be a legend in this town.

Charlie, Jackie H, and Pasta are the future, and the future begins now.

The original plan was for Halak to go tonight, but both goalies ended up playing pretty much even minutes last night. I think I would stick Rask back in there.

Up front, 3 of the 4 lines were OK possession wise but just couldn’t translate that into any scoring chances. But the game was out of reach from early on in the 2nd, so not sure how much you can get out of that. The 3rd line was a total shit show. They don’t really have many options here. Kuraly is the 3C for now. I suppose they could drop Heinen down to LW and then put Donato or Bjork with Krejci. Maybe that stabilized things. Backes could play C, but they have refused to let him play C for 2+ years now except for emergency, so seems they’re stuck with Kuraly in the middle.

Going 2-6 on the PK was an impressive feat. Who knew the Capitals would look for one timers from the top of the left circle?

Donato's unimpresiveness without the puck still stands out to me.

He really has been unimpressive this preseason and last night was a disaster. I don't think he should play today, and Bjork should get the nod.

Haggs pick of him as ROY is looking mighty foolish so far. He might need some real time in Providence.

Haggs already has a hit piece on Rask out that I won’t link to.

I’m ok rolling either of Halak / Rask tonight. Liked what I saw from Halak, enough so that I think Tuukka will have a fire under his ass from the added competition.

I thought it was a shitty move on Marchand’s part, but some of the grandstanding and cries for suspension were over the top.

Nordstrom has tried to clear the puck through the defensive crease twice and both times it has ended poorly. If that is a repeating problem, it needs to be remedied, quickly.

Grzelcyk is earning minutes. Twice he has halted a haphazard rush to let his teammates readjust, and both times the clean has turned a clean out into offensive pressure.

Is Jack pronouncing Krecji differently? Kreh-chi instead of Kray-chi? He did something similar for Marchand after he asked a couple years ago.

Also, I make this statement every year the B's roll out their new (or in this case, returning) sideline person. BRING BACK NAOKO!

Yes, and I guess its back to MARSH-ahnd instead of MarSHAND as well.

Not messing with you. We do a "horse's mouth" pronunciation guide each season. This is how Brad Marchand wants his name pronounced: Mar-shond. We will honor that. It's his, his wife's, and his child's name.
See you tomorrow night on NESN.

I listened to 10 minutes of the radio broadcast until about 10 minutes ago. Who the hell is on (on 92.9 tonight)? The B's committed a penalty and they never once said who it was on, but "it was just a one handed slash" they told me over and over again. Talking over each other and just not giving any info. Been awhile since I've tried to listen to them on radio, gonna be alot longer until I try again

Completely missed this. Its confirmation of the process that I expected that they've talked about before.

Halak has had fantastic positioning. Multiple times he has blocked shots he couldn't see because he made himself as big as he possibly could to defend the space the puck could come from.
