Game Notes:

  • Matt Fraser has been recalled from Providence. SAVIOR OF THE FRANCHISE?
  • What we learned from the intrepid reporters at Bruins practice yesterday: the Canadiens' practice facility in Brossard is apparently really nice. Nicer than Wilmington. Nice that we have such a low bar to aim at.
  • Odds are the Bruins' lines won't change for tonight's game. Free trip to Montreal for Fraser? Free trip to Montreal for Fraser. Enjoy the poutine, kid.


Iginla's late goal was pretty cool.

Extra Skater Stats Preview

The Bruins continue to out-stat the Habs through game 3...just need a little help from the D on not screwing up Canadiens' opportunities.
