Game Notes:

  • Genuine concern about a game against the Coyotes is not fun, but here we are. If Bruins lose tomorrow, it's their first four-game road trip with no points since 1963 (per @DanCagen tweet). Yikes.
  • I'd be lying if I said I didn't start a "put Griffith in" chant from my couch.
  • These are two struggling teams just looking for a win right now. There's going to be some serious desperation.
