I really think we need to have a caption contest one of these days.
Thank god that's over.
The Bruins have their busiest month ahead of them now, with 17 games in 31 days. There is only one break longer than a day this month, and multiple back-to-backs. Can they handle the intensified schedule? Hopefully they can at finish off with a bang, especially with a group of Chowder-ites heading to New York City and Long Island at the end of the month. (look at my stealth edit) (so stealthy) (PS, how is the planning for that going?)

- Sam Gagner was surprised that Tom Gilbert was traded. Oh trade deadline. [Sun]
