@ Toronto Maple Leafs (31-31-13)
  • Aaaaaaaah, it's time for some Bruins hockey again. I bought a domain name to celebrate.
  • Kessel isn't traveling with the team this weekend. Rumor says it's his shoulder, but I think he's just watching his little brother play with UNH.
  • Open threads at SCoC and PPP tonight.
  • Scott Cullen looks at how teams do with and without key players. Kessel isn't mentioned.
  • Last night in NCAA Hockey, the only non-upset was thanks to an amazing, last minute, 2-goal comeback to tie it up in the UMD/Princeton game. Here's that last minute of regulation:

Other Previews:
There are many. Numbered for fun:
  1. Caveman Strong: "Watch Wideman tonight, though, as his groin injury from 07-08 is supposedly flaring again and his health is crucial to our success on even strength play, as evidenced by the +32 rating (not to mention his 23 PP points)."
  2. Cameron Frye: "The B's have been off this week, both Ward & Ference welcomed new bundles of joy( hopefully they've nottoo tired from late night diaper changes) - so the team should be well rested for these last few games."
  3. Kynch's Korner: "The Leafs are led offensively by the pesky Jason Blake. It seems hard to believe he "only" has 25 goals."
  4. Stanley Cup of Chowder: If you do nothing else, watch that kiss cam video to the end. Solid gold.
  5. Pension Plan Puppets: "The Bruins are the talk of the Eastern Conference, but the Leafs haven't played them since January. Let's hope the new look Leafs do their usual Saturday night awesome job and send the Bruins home without two points tonight."
  6. The Bear Cave: "The Boston Bruins still have the lead, but suddenly, they are the ones with the games in hand."
  7. Matt Kalman: "The way this last week went, you’d think they’d already be playing in the Super Bowl."
  8. Bruins Blog: "Matt Hunwick, who has dressed for only six of the club's last 12 games, has averaged a point per game (3 goals, 3 assists) in those six starts."
  9. NESN First Shift: "Justin Pogge is 1-3-1 with a 3.95 goals-against average and .855 save-percentage"
