The Bruins are playing the
Winnipeg Jets Phoenix Coyotes tomorrow for the first time since Prague! It's a 9 P.M. game which is lame but keep an eye on that Keith Yandle fellow! More importantly, the world is about to realize how saintly Patrice Bergeron is when he is on "NHL 36." The cameras started following him on Tuesday and will continue.....for 36 hours....as the team travels and such.
This is the first game after the NHL holiday break and since the trade freeze has been lifted (the second part...not as exciting). The Bruins are having an almost as perfect December as they did November so hopefully they can close out the year with two road wins.
After the jump, stuff about Benoit Pouliot, Patrice Bergeron and more more more!
