Game Notes:

  • LUONGO
  • No seriously Luongo. He even dug out his old mask from 2006 so that he'd be all matchy-matchy. It's so awesome to see how happy he is to be "home."
  • The Panthers are giving out Tim Thomas bobbleheads tonight. Everything about this just makes me yearn for the buddy cop comedy that never will be.
  • Outside of Brad Boyes, Jonathan Huberdeau, and Nick Bjugstad, this Panthers' offense looks ridiculously meager. How does this team have 55 points?
  • On the Bruins' side, pretty much status quo. Meszaros shows no signs of actually getting into the lineup. Odds are Chad Johnson will get tonight's start to spell Tuukka Rask.
