The two official blogs that I go to for news (Fluto's Boston Globe Bruins Blog
, and John Bishop's Bish's Blog
) are both saying this:
• Kessel was assigned to Providence (Press release here
) to play last night's game, tonight's game, and tomorrow afternoon's game. He should be recalled to Boston after this three game stint. Kessel played very well last night, showing that he hasn't lost his speed.
• Hannu Toivonen has been recalled from Providence after a great performance against the Worcester Sharks. Tim Thomas will be starting against Philly though.
• Matt Lashoff has been recalled from Providence today. That means that Chara, who hurt himself against Toronto, will probably not be playing. My guess on the D pairings is: Alberts-Stuart, Mara-Lashoff, and Jurcina-York. Though I must reiterate that that is just a guess.
• Patrice Bergeron, according to Fluto, will probably be playing today. Bergeron sustained an injury against Toronto however was seen playing soccer before today's game.
The Bruins need a win! There is no better team to beat then the last place team. Lets beat Philly!
P.S. Game starts in about a half hour, 1:00 PM on NESN ans WBZ
Update at 1:10
Chara is in fact out, Bergeron is playing though. The defense pairings go as follows:
