Preview:

Listen, I am pumped about this game because TAILGATING. Yes, the Columbus Blue Jackets are hosting a team-sponsored tailgate today and it's going to be excellent.

The Bruins are on the road for the first time this season, and going up against Sergei Bobrovsky and the Jackets isn't going to be a walk in the park. The Jackets have won two games so far this year, one against Buffalo and a shootout win against the Islanders - and lost to Calgary in their home opener.

Boston has won the last two meetings between these two teams - once in a shootout, and once in regulation.

Can the Bruins help welcome Columbus to the East the way they helped welcome Detroit?

Never Forget:

I feel like this is appropriate in light of Thursday's dumbness:
