Game Notes:

  • Bruins taking on the Panthers in an epic Flortheast rivalry showdown????? meh.
  • Potential to blow out a terrible team and take over the position of Team With Best Goal Differential In The East? eh, okay.
  • Possibilty of a four-game win streak? No big deal.
  • Potential to put distance between themselves and Tampa Bay? Sort of important I suppose.
  • Chris Kelly might be back in. That's cool.
