Game Notes:

  • GO FOR 13. A win tonight would tie the Bruins' record for longest win streak in team history. 13 wins has been done twice before: in 1929-30 and in 1971. Legendary.
  • Apparently Smokey McFornicate Carey Price is back tonight. Here's hoping he comes back rusty and the Bruins can light him up.
  • With Boychuk back, will Krug remain out, or will the team rotate out another defenseman? Will Chara get a rest before the season ends? Here's hoping.
  • Gus, who will be covering tonight's game, had good advice for this preview: "just draw a handlebar mustache on Tomas Plekanec and call it good." a million internet points to anyone who does this and posts it in the comments.
  • Vanek has found his scoring touch again oh god someone save us

NEVER FORGET:

Carey Price's finest moment
