Ray Bourque's son won

Ray Bourque's son beat the Bruins with two minutes to go on Saturday. The game was fun though, and the Garden had 13,000 fans in it, a lot for a meaningless game. Hopefully the Garden continues to fill up. Hockey teams play better when home ice means a packed and loud arena. During the 4-3 loss, Blake Wheeler, Andrew Ference, and Petteri Nokelainen scored.

A few quick notes on the game:

the Sobotka-Yelle-Nokelainen line played very well. Sobotka and Nokelainen are on the chopping block because of guys like Thompson and Wheeler, but they are playing hard and making it a tough decision for Julien.

"Special teams" was disastrous. The Bruins gave up two power play goals and failed twice to score with a 5 on 3 advantage.

Tim Thomas was shaky. He did not look like the Tim Thomas we all love. He gave up a few goals that he normally wouldn't. I guess that's what the pre-season is for.
