On Monday night the Bruins spanked the Montreal Canadiens. I listened to the game on the radio via the internet (thank you, CJAD). The Bruins won 8-3. The Bruins and Habs also engaged in four fights. The best was Shawn Thornton beating the daylights out of Steve Begin (who is a very dirty player and deserved the multiple shots to the head that Thornton gave him).
The Bruins lost in their second and third game 2-1 against the Islanders and then Red Wings. Neither game was on the radio. John Bishop of BostonBruins.com did a nice job of updating every other minute, but it's just not the same.
I found a radio feed from Detriot for last night's game and was able to listen to the Bruins beat the Red Wings 2-1. Tuuka Rask played very well. Meanwhile Michael Ryder scored his first goal of the preseason. I was very impressed with the defense. The Red Wings had their stars on the ice (which now includes Marian Hossa), and our defense didn't have Chara or Wideman, yet the Wings only scored once.
I'm heading off to the Garden soon to see the Bruins take on the Capitals (with my new season tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). I'm not sure who's going to play. I'm hoping Sturm-Bergeron-Kessel (a very productive line against the Habs) will play this afternoon. Meanwhile, Fernandez, Kessel, and Schaefer have minor injuries and won't play. Kobasew, Hnidy, and Chara have yet to play in a pre-season game, they are still recovering from injuries sustained last season.
Go Bruins! (and if they do play today, Yankees suck as well)
