Game Notes:

  • The Bruins and WIld have not played each other since 2/19/12. The last time the Bruins beat the Wild was 11/25/2009, in a shootout. Their only regulation win came in 2005.
  • The only thing I am taking away from this Wild lineup right now is that Dany Heatley is a fourth-liner now. Wow. Crazy. How the mighty have fallen, etc.
  • Poor Charlie Coyle, saddled with the sack of hot garbage that is Matt Cooke.
  • The Bruins really are 2-10-0 all time against the Wild, including 0-6-0 at home. That is straight-up nuts.
  • Will Claude bench Meszaros again? Or will one of the young guys sit? WHO KNOWS
  • Tuukka Rask is likely to get the start in goal tonight against the Wild.

NEVER FORGET:

There are literally zero Bruins-Wild highlights on youtube, so since Bryz is likely going to be in net and Cosmos is a popular thing now, let's watch this!
