Preview:

I am predicting that Kaspars Daugavins will be in. That is my official prediction and I am sticking to it.

What a gorgeous freaking day in Boston, eh? The statues are all decked out, tourists are out en masse, it's less than two weeks until the Fourth of July...and we still have at least two hockey games to look forward to. Amazing.

Hopefully you got outside and enjoyed the day a little. Tonight....tonight is going to be a showdow for the ages. Can Corey Crawford rectify his glove hand issues? Will Tyler Seguin or Jaromir Jagr finally break their scoring slumps? Can Zdeno Chara not be a -3 again, please?

We'll see soon enough.
