Hitting the Links: New Year's Day/ Weekend Edition


New Year's Day is unofficially known as "National Hangover Day," and last night it looked like the Bruins had started a little early. The Bruins only put 20 shots on goal in Dallas in a 4-2 loss to the Stars in a game that the Bruins looked lost in from the start.

This was bound to happen eventually, I guess. Even when the Bruins have lost during their hot streak, it's always felt like they were the better team (the Florida game is a good example). That was not the case last night. They got outplayed. They're back in action on Wednesday night in Jersey, and you can bet you'll see a much better effort.

After the jump, reactions to last night's game, Ryan Miller gets a bird, and an ugly racial incident in Sunrise.
