Game Notes

Welcome back to hockey! Ah, that most wonderful time of the year when half your team's been traded or lost to free agency or injury, a bunch of new kids are here, you don't recognize anyone's face anymore, and the lines could easily just get thrown in a blender then chucked against the wall to see what sticks. Is this what getting old feels like?

These defense pairings could be complete nonsense. Can we talk about how horrendous that top pairing is? That's like, tears-inducing. Never fear, though: Zdeno Chara may yet play tonight. No one has any idea what's happening with the fourth line. These are the known unknowns. The known knowns: the fourth line's basically going to be GRIT - HEART - SANDPAPER. Those top three lines are cemented in. Tuukka Rask is in net. It's the first game of the season. The Bruins haven't lost a game yet. Winnipeg is really bad. The Habs are in town on Saturday! Perfect timing for a game against a team that's pretty terrible on paper as a tune-up for the big show on Saturday.

Welcome to your 2015-2016 season. Grab a beer and let's enjoy the ride.

Never Forget:

Sweet mother of Bergeron this was FIVE YEARS AGO
