Game 46: Bruins vs. St. Louis MLK DAY MATINEE

Jan 19, 2009 1:00 PM ET
Radio: WBZ 1030AM
vs. St. Louis Blues (17-23-4)

  • The St. Louis blues have been pretty hurting all season. Their #1 defenseman got hurt at a charity golf tournament and has been out all season with a torn ACL. He will be out the rest of the season, too.
  • St. Louis has more injured players than Boston.
  • Over the last two games, the Bruins fought hard and lost, and coasted to a win. Hmmm...
  • Brad Boyes is their leading scorer, and was the 5th leading scorer last year. He used to be a Bruin. They got Dennis Wideman for him. It's worked out ok for us.
  • I got skates for christmas and went skating yesterday. Holy crap that was awesome.

Other Previews:
  • Double A Hockey: "Blues rookie Patrik Bergulnd leads the NHL rookies with 14 goals this season, one more than Boston's Blake Wheeler."
  • The Bear Cave: "Last month, the Bruins went into St. Louis and beat the Blues 6-3, for their first win in Missouri since October of 1995."
  • Cameron Frye: "[Brad Boyes] played on the B's back when the Patriots made the play offs, Manny Ramirez was still with the Red Sox and Jesus Shuttlesworth didn't bleed green."
  • HubHockey: "Could we see Keith Tkachuk in Black & Gold before this season ends?"
  • Stanley Cup Of Chowder: "I would expect Manny Fernandez to get the nod in goal considering he hasn't seen game action since January 8th."
  • NESN First Shift: No goalie predictions = no fun.
