Opening Night is here!

CATCH THE FEVER, IT'S EMPTY-BUILDING HOCKEY IN NEW JERSEY.

I think it's safe to say that most people here are looking forward to this season with a mixture of confidence and curiosity, as some big names have moved out and some youth has come in.

Per Bruce Cassidy's pregame press conference, both Craig Smith and Brad Marchand are game-time decisions.

If I were a betting man, I'd expect both end up playing.

If not, it's time for the TAXI SQUAD.

It's worth noting that Par Lindholm, who cleared waivers, has been added to that squad.

Assuming Marchand and Smith play, here's what to expect:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Jack Studnicka

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Ondrej Kase

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Craig Smith

Anders Bjork - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

On defense, the Bruins' youth movement will be on full display.

Jeremy Lauzon - Charlie McAvoy

Matt Grzelcyk - Brandon Carlo

Jakub Zboril - Kevan Miller

Regardless of how you feel about his contract/play, you have to be happy for a guy like Miller who's returning to the ice after being out for so long.

Hopefully he makes the most of the return!

Tuukka Rask will be in net.

See ya tonight!
