Hitting The Links: Time To Regroup Edition

The Bruins have two days off before facing off against Chicago at the United Center, a building they haven't played in since December 16, 2009. Hopefully the two days without a game will kick some sense into them, as going 1-3-0 to start the season isn't, good. Or promising. Or good.

No real news on Adam McQuaid as of right now, but between he, David Krejci, and Steven Kampfer, the Bruins have already lost six man-games to injury. Last year, all season including Marc Savard's missed time, they lost something like 105 total. They're on pace for a lot more than that right now. Not good.

After the jump, a first NHL goal,  Sean Avery reports to the Whale, and Brad Marchand has some choice words about his team's play so far.
