Hitting The Links: I Have No Clever Title Because It's Monday Edition

Sorry about the lack of a clever title, but none of you read this anyways, so I'm not that pressed. I'm really way too excited to see the Bruins in two days to function, how in the heck am I going to get through the next two work days.

Anyway, the Bruins dropped a stinker in Minnesota - you might say "oh hey Sarah you're an idiot, they put 49 shots on goal how is that a stinker!" but when approximately 45 of those shots are straight into Niklas Backstrom's chest, you are not going to score goals. Seriously. It's going to be tough without Nathan Horton and Rich Peverley, going forward, and maybe this is the time to make a big trade, but whether a trade happens or not, wins are not going to happen against good goalies like Backstrom with poor quality shots like that.

After the jump, a really long fight, a look at the next opponent, the Red Wings won a lot of games at home, and more...
