Wow, a home game!

The Boston Bruins return home tonight to play their second home game of the season. The B's are looking to earn a full 2 points tonight after suffering back-to-back shootout losses. Their guests, the Toronto Maple Leafs are searching for their first W since opening night when they defeated the defending Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings.

Things to look for tonight:

- Tim Thomas will get the start in goal.

- P.J. Axelsson skated with the team this morning and could be back in the lineup tonight.

- Ron Wilson does not have high hopes for the '08-'09 edition of the grammatically incorrect foliage.

- Both teams are 0-3 in the shootout this season.

- If the game does go to a shootout, could we see Ron Wilson's closer Curtis Joseph?

- Tonight marks the return of Dancing Guy.

- Vesa Toskala is one win shy of his 100th NHL victory.

- Ryan Hollweg is back from suspension for the Leafs.

- Jason Blake could be a healthy scratch for Toronto tonight

- Tonight is Hockey Fights Cancer Night at the TD Banknorth Garden which will include fund-raising activities to benefit The Cam Neely Foundation.

The Leafs TV "COMMENtators" preview tonight's game from Boston's favorite spot for panhandlers, ne'er do wells, and radical protesters:

Everyone's favorite YouTube hockey analyst Steve Dangle thinks that the fans at Leafs games are lame and that Ron Wilson should give Charlie Conway a chance to wear the C.
