In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitchhiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects.
First, it is slightly cheaper; and secondly it has the words DON'T PANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover.
Trust in the words of the hitchhiker's guide, friends. This team is still a playoff team, and anything can happen after that. The Bruins haven't had the chance to fully recover from the cup run, so a slow start can be expected. It'll work itself out.
Let's not throw the panic switch until at least (real) thanksgiving, if not New Year's. It will keep all of us sane.
