Hitting The Links: Reeling Edition

At least Turco Time went sort of okay.

So this injury bug nonsense is pretty awful. The losses of Patrice Bergeron, Adam McQuaid and new callup Maxime Sauve could be devastating to the Bruins' Stanley Cup chances, especially Bergeron. While these three will be re-evaluated in Tampa, it's anyone's guess as to the severity, but one thing's for sure - it's highlighting just exactly how lucky the Bruins were regarding injuries last year.

After the jump, more on this weekend in Bruins hockey, the Blue Jackets have some decisions to make, and GM meetings begin...
