Radio: WBZ 1030 AM
vs. New York Rangers (29-17-4)
  • Nice writeup on Axelsson in the Globe today.
  • The Rangers have a shutdown PK, but crap defense on the powerplay.
  • If not for the Devils, the Rangers would be first in the Atlantic right now.
  • Olympic Gymnast Alicia Sacramone will be dropping the puck. Here she is dropping the gloves:

Makes me proud to be from Massachusetts.
Previous Games:
  • Game 17: Bruins 2 NYR 2 SO LOSS: Possibly one of the most infuriating games ever.
Other Previews:

  • WickedBruinsFan: Zdeno Chara needs one point for 300 NHL points.
  • Double A Hockey: Will Rangers goalie Lundqvist stink up the ice as bad as he did against Pittsburgh on Wednesday, allowing a 6-2 defeat. Or was this a fluke?
  • Stanley Cup of Chowder: I would like to see Tuuka Rask get the start today. Tim Thomas is getting a heavy workload lately. I say give the kid a shot and see what he can do in a meaningful game.
  • The Bear Cave: Tom Renney has already confirmed that Henrik Lundqvist will be the man between the pipes when his team takes the ice on Saturday.

  • NESN First Shift: "You know, we can lick our wounds and think they were unfortunate goals, but you know, they all count. We have to score some of those goals." - Bruins Defenseman Aaron Ward on the hard-luck goals scored against his team Thursday night
