Game Notes:

  • This is not a rivalry.
  • No, really, stop trying to make the rivalry thing happen. It's never going to happen.
  • JOHN TORTORELLA IS BACK! Likely that will be the big story of the night, next to the fact that...
  • Vancouver traded for Raphael Diaz yesterday! So he will likely be in the lineup for them tonight.
  • Tuukka Rask will be starting in net, according to morning skate.
  • Last time these two teams met, my brother was getting married so I missed the game. It totally wasn't a 6-1 blowout or anything, right? .....right?
  • The Bruins are 72-29-15 all time against the Canucks. They've played two games since the Stanley Cup FInals and the Bruins have lost both. Will tonight be the streakbreaker??
  • Vancouver has lost four games in a row. That's...not good.

NEVER FORGET:

This will never not be funny.
