Rematch time.

The Bruins have a similar situation with the 'Canes this year to what they had with the Capitals last year, where a bunch of the games are early in the season and none are later. It's good, because it means that the Bruins can build on the momentum from Saturday's rousing shootout win by beating a team that they have a little pre-existing anger at. Cool story.

After the jump, the Oilers have both a really ghetto arena and a really cool baby superstar in the making, Milan Lucic forgot that Steven Kampfer was supposed to still be no-contact, apparently, and VIDEO from the Harvard Lampoon event. It's pretty good. Seriously.
