Hitting The Links: M.A.S.H. Unit Edition

Welp, for his first game, he certainly held his own.

It's starting to feel like 2009-2010 again up in here on this Bruins team, isn't it? With Daniel Paille, Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton, Rich Peverley, and now Tuukka Rask sidelined by injury, the number of Providence callups in the lineup alarming, and the losses beginning to pile up, there's definitely shades of years past sneaking in here.

Although the loss to the Rangers was a tough one, there were bright spots. Lane MacDermid's first NHL fight in his first NHL game. Tenacity; the team didn't just roll over and quit when New York got the jump on them. And against the best team in the East, losing by one goal is not the end of the world. Tomorrow they face the new-coach Maple Leafs; today, news about Tuukka Rask's injury will come out. Brace yourselves.

After the jump, the curious case of a forward playing goalie, Brad Marchand's diary, and more...
