I don't understand how today is "National Hockey Day." Did Obama sign off on this? Was there some bill passed that we didn't hear about?

Boston heads to Minneapolis this afternoon for a matinee with the struggling Minnesota Wild, who are sure to be a bit tired after getting handed a 4-0 defeat in St. Louis yesterday.

After missing practice yesterday, Tyler Seguin will play today. So will Chris Kelly, but there's no word on whether his missing teeth will be present or not.

It should be Tim Thomas in net, but I'm always wrong with these things, so who knows just who it will be?
