Game Notes:

  • Oh boy, the Preds. Seth Jones! America! I always forget Roman Josi exists until this day every year which is a pity because he's incredibly easy on the eyes, let me tell you
  • The Bruins lines above may or may not be accurate; they're based on last game, but David Krejci has traveled with the team, and may play? We'll see!
  • Here is OTF's game preview. The Preds lost their last game, and they haven't lost two games in a row all year. That'd be a nice streak to ruin. I mean, we have to take the little victories here at this point, right?
  • Pekka Rinne is good. You know this. I know this. The last time the Bruins went to Nashville, they beat the Preds 6-2. Likely we won't see a repeat of that. 2-1 would be nice. Or 3-1. Or 3-2. ANY COMBINATION OF NUMBERS WHERE THE BRUINS WIN, PLEASE.


I miss this Lucic.
