John Bishop is reporting that Tim Thomas will be in net tonight against New Jersey at the garden. It looks like he's over the flu and Toivenen will be riding the bench again. Tonight's game and Saturday night's game are important. The Bruins play New Jersey then Florida at the garden. New Jersey and Florida have combined to crush the Bruins three times. New Jersey crushed us just last Saturday 5-1 in Game 27
, and Florida beat us 8-3 in Game 1
, and then again 3-2 in Game 18
. Winning against New Jersey and Florida these next two days are crucial.
Also Theo Epstein has confirmed that the Red Sox have signed new big name pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka
. NESN has been all over this. The press conference is going to be at Fenway in a few minutes (probably on NESN). Boston.com's Red Sox page
will have video also.
One last bit of news is that Tom Brady fired some shots
at teammates. I won't go into detail of what he said, but Tom Brady saying something bad about a Pats player is something you'll only see once in a lifetime. Brady didn't say any specific player's name, but he said that more than one player wasn't taking advice from the coaches well, and that it is hurting the team.
Tonight we end the losing streak at 2! Go Bruins
