- Bruins deity Patrice Bergeron is still a possibility to play on Monday night; the potential appearance would mark his season debut.
- Tuukka Rask is expected to return to the lineup Monday night, and Thank God, because the takes...holy hell the takes.
This "general soreness" excuse from Tuukka Rask is the most pathetic excuse I've heard from a Boston athlete since Manny Ramirez. #Bruins— Kevin Olson (@BruinsScience) October 17, 2016
- David Pastrnak has goals in consecutive games. He joins Brad Marchand and David Backes as the only Bruins players to score a goal. Here’s a quick thought: other players might want to chip in!
- Danton Heinen and Austin Czarnik have a combined 2 shots on goal through the opening two games. Pastrnak leads all Bruins skaters with 14 shots on goal.
- Rob O’Gara (42.59) and Torey Krug (43.33) are the lowest rated Bruins d-men in terms of CF%, while Czarnik (37.5) and Jimmy Hayes (38.64) are the lowest forwards. It’s only two games and these will likely jump in time. I just needed to add in some more information regarding the Bruins.
- 2015 National Champion and Providence Friar alum Brandon Tanev cracked the Jets roster out of camp.
