Saturday’s Game #5 had the Bruins working into double overtime to win their third in a row. Now back at the Centre Bell on April 26, 2011 for Game #6, with a chance to finish the series, will the Bruins rise to the task? Game preview and gamethread. Hey! Check out the GIFs, Marisa Ingemi is there along with many old friends, and Andrew Berkshire stopped in to rustle jimmies. The fun starts at 8:00PM tonight.

SPOILER ALERT- postgame wrapup.

But first, at 7:00PM (beware-these start times historically have been pushed earlier to 6:00PM to accommodate the NESN broadcast that follows) @Dafoomie features a Bruins v. Hurricanes game from October 3, 2009, the second game of the season following an opening night stinker (it was against the Capitals, and it was 4-1.) Have a look at the preview and gamethread. Wow! There was a lot of cross-pollination between the Bruins’ and Canes’ rosters in that time period. Of note- after watching the WSBK Final Hurrah at Boston Garden in 1995 last evening, tonight’s game coincidentally includes recognizing the passing of Fred Cusick.

We’ve got hockey! What’s on tap?
