Morning Skate: Season

A season for giving.

Welcome to Tuesday, folks!

Fresh off of a two-win weekend, the Bruins don’t play again until Thursday, when the “no really, this is the year” Buffalo Sabres come to town.

After that, the B’s will host the Arizona Coyotes for a Saturday matinée — a team that is surprisingly hot right now, having won five games in a row.

Arizona’s latest win was a 6-0 pasting of the Washington Capitals on Monday night, which gave the Coyotes an interesting claim to fame:

The Bruins will have an optional practice this morning, then the entire team will head out to area hospitals to spread some holiday cheer.

Per the team, players and team personnel will visit Boston Children’s Hospital, Franciscan Children’s, Mass General for Children, Shriners Children’s Boston, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

This is where the B’s distribute the toys and stuff they bought at the recent team shopping event, so...good stuff.

Anyways, what’s on tap for today? Are you joining the “Coyotes are good” bandwagon or are you pumping the brakes?
