Great news came out of the Bronx late last night. Jorge Posada struck out swinging in the bottom of the ninth, ending the Yankees season! The Red Sox will play Cleveland at Fenway park on Friday (before the Bruins game) to start the best of seven series.
Meanwhile, there isn't much happening here (and by here I mean all of Bruins Nation). I'm very excited to see how the Bruins do against the defending Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks. It is true that a Ducks team without Niedermayer and Selanne is a much weaker team, however the game is in Southern California and should be a good one.
Word is that Marc Savard is day to day with a groin strain he suffered during the second period of Saturday's game in Phoenix. I'm not too woried, even if he has to miss a couple games. Metropolit and Kessel can step up and we might even get to see Reich or Bochenski. Both of them are talented players who deserve ice time but can't get any because of the Bruins depth at the forward positions.
