The B's skate into the World's Largest Horse Saddle (I assume) tonight to face the Calgary Flames. The Bruins are riding a 3 game winning streak and will look to extend it tonight versus Jarome Iginla and the Calgary Flames.

Calgary Flames Trivia
According to the always reliable Wikipedia, Harvey the Hound was the NHL's first mascot.

Things to Look for Tonight:

- Mikka Kiprusoff has started all 9 of the Flames games this season and will get the start again tonight.

- I would be very surprised if we didn't see Tim Thomas get the start in the Boston net.

- The Flames are currently on a 4 game winning streak.

- Can the B's shutdown Iginla?

- Todd Bertuzzi has a shooting percentage of 28.6%. The B's will need to limit his shots on goals.

- The B's might get a few power play opportunities tonight. Calgary is 5th in the league in PIMs with 21.1 per game.

- The game is on at 9:00, which means you will have to DVR "The Office" Halloween episode.
