- According to practice lines, goalie Chad Johnson (Hi, I'm Chad Johnson...that Chad Johnson) will be making his first post-Bruins Garden debut. He went 17-3-4 for the Bs as Rask's back up but clearly our Godly defense contributed to that.
- The Islanders are completely stacked at center with Tavares, Grabovski, Nelson, Nielsen, Strome, and Cizikas all more than capable of playing the position.
- Newfound NYI depth will give the Bruins a challenge tonight, especially with Krug out of the lineup.
- Smith and Krug will not play today.
Seriously...don't ever forget this.
