Bit of a revenge game IMO...not totally sure the players feel this way but I bet they do.

Third straight game at an unorthodox time- 10:00pm for our east coasters.

Have fun all of the SoSHers who are attending.

Any game vs a team that has beaten the Bruins even one time counts as a revenge game in my book. Tonight now qualifies as a revenge game.

Ah, I remember that! Turns out, he didn't collapse completely, only partially -- thanks to Ativan.
IIRC, the team was returning from a road trip, and when he looked toward the back of the bus, he was certain that rookie winger Lynn Patrick was strangling a chicken in his lap, which Andy feared would delay their trip across the border. Turned out it was a stripper from St. Catherine's Street.

Just as I thought, your memory is waning. It wasn't the rookie winger Lynn Patrick, who at the time was in quaratine and being treated for tuberculosis, but instead the wily veteran Keenan O'Toole who Andy feared was choking his chicken.

EDIT: Oh, you added your last sentence as I was posting. It also wasn't the stripper (who, by the way, lived just off of St. Catherine's Street, by your uncle Norman).

EDIT 2: After 2.5 days off, I think we're both more than a little ready for some Bs hockey. :)

Most likely, though they could also say they want to give him another practice/skate.

By my math they have to clear $750,000 to activate him. That happens to be Vinni Lettieri's cap hit so maybe they can put him on LTIR and make it work but that would leave them with quite literally $0 in cap space.

Zero? Wow. An odd artifact of NHL cap and LTIR is that one of the better outcomes for the team is Smith getting injured tonight. It's probably not a good thing that an outcome like that is a good thing.

Also, having never been to a road game before, I’ve heard about how well the bruins travel, but this is ridiculous. This might not sound much like a road game.

Eddie Olczyk is on the Kraken's broadcast? will be one of the rare I'll go with the Boston feed as there will be no reason to seek out interesting insights from the other team's broadcast with him commentating...

When I lived in CO my ex got us tickets to an Avy/Bs game. Yeah we def travel well but it was still fun joking around with Avs fans. I think I enjoy the experience as a fan of the road team more

The Kraken might care a just little more about playing the Bruins than the Bruins do about facing the Kraken.
