- Will you be in attendance for tonight's game? If so, then congratulations, you'll have the opportunity to star in a Jake Gyllenhaal movie!
- Boston (90 points) trails both Detroit (third in Atlantic) and Philadelphia (2nd Wild Card) by 1 point in the standings. Philadelphia has one game in-hand.
- Philadelphia and Detroit play each Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. A Boston win tonight is a must, I guess is what I'm trying to say.
- Here are some personnel notes from yesterday's practice:
Dennis Seidenberg pulls the plug in a battle drill. Doesn't look ready at this point.— Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) April 4, 2016
Chris Kelly and Dennis Seidenberg on the ice for practice. Brett Connolly and Kevan Miller not on the ice. #NHLBruins— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) April 4, 2016
- Seidenberg left practice early, as Shinzawa reported, so don't expect him to return to the lineup on Tuesday night. Chris Kelly is working his tail off to make a possible playoff return, or just to be in great shape when he goes golfing next Friday. The next three games ultimately determine Kelly's plans.
I would like to see playoff hockey return to Boston, just so we know for certain Claude Julien will be here next fall.
