Hitting The Links: It's Just A Flesh Wound Edition

Horton, get up, we're supposed to be celebrating not randomly sitting down, come on, you're cramping our style.

Good lord, Daniel Paille's face. The fourth-line winger is set to undergo surgery today, as we all know by now. It raises the question - with Rich Peverley still questionable (or is he?), who will fill Paille's slot? Will it be NHL veteran Chris Clark, or perennial disappointment Zach Hamill, or maybe even the recently-recovered Maxime Sauve? Or will the Bruins even need to make a callup? 

After the jump, some stuff from the Bruins' off day, plus a headbutting incident, an awesome coaching debut, a tribute to two Lokomotiv players, and a bit of Barry Melrose...
