Morning Skate: On an island

These guys again!

NHL: New York Islanders at Boston Bruins Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The 2021 Bruins are a good team. They are also o-fer the New York Islanders this season.

Weird, wild stuff.

The B’s lost to the Islanders again last night, falling to 0-3-2 against them on the season. It was a game that saw the Bruins lead 2-0, blow that lead to trail 3-2, tie the game late, then fall flat on their faces in overtime.

Good times.

Oh, and Tuukka Rask got hurt!

On the bright side, fans were back in attendance last night for the first time in more than a year, so that’s good.

It was nice to have some actual crowd noise for a broadcast, and to the credit of the crowd, they made a decent amount of noise for a small group.

Anyways, it’s Friday. The Bruins are back from their COVID pause. There’s a game on the books for tomorrow against the Buffalo Sabres.

What’s on tap?

There should be promotion/relegation in hockey. I don’t know how it would work. Discuss.
