Hey everyone! Alexandra Cabot here in the press box and we’re getting ready for another night of Bruins hockey. Tonight the Bruins take on the first place, Buffalo Sabres. It’s Military Appreciation Night at the Garden, so I’m going to try to get in as many Full Metal Jacket, Platoon and Stripes references as possible and hopefully I can drop the term ‘tailhook’ inthere too. Extra points to those of you who can make a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ reference. FYI, Aaron Ward donated $15,000 300 military people and their familes could come to tonight’s game. Class act.
The whiphers about the Bruins signing veternan free agent, Brendan Shanahan are getting louder. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything during the game. Also, Blake Wheeler and Phil Kessel will be premiering their new looks thanks to the staff at Barbershop Lounge. Saucy!! More when the game start, see ya then!
Shane Hnidy is out for his second straight game and Tim Thomas is back in the goal…..
7:01 Correction! thanks to Tbred, Manny Fernandez is in fact in goal tonight. Shocker. Everything I’ve gotten so far has said it’s Thomas. Fire them, please! Continue reading

The New York Rangers first-round pick (17th) from last years draft, Alexei Cherepanov, died in a KHL game. Puck Daddy has all the details and links regarding the story. A terrible tragedy and condolences go out to his family, friends, and teammates.
On to What’s Bruin.
The Minnesota Wild's newest captain poses for a picture with his biggest fan: a big, tall Nordic kid wearing a pinstripe suit.
Since John wasn’t around yesterday, it probably fell on me to write up the What’s Bruin for Friday, but I was busy not writing it. Sorry for that. To make up for it, today’s pre-game notes will feature fun “Did You Know?” facts, as we cheer the Bruins on in the early stages of an unbeaten season.
On a self-indulgent (is it still called self-indulgent if I’m talking about two people?) note, I just wanted to let everyone know that the record number of hits to the blog was shattered yesterday. Our previous record high came on the day our Bruins preview was posted on Melt Your Face Off (check it out, if you still haven’t! You don’t have to read the whole thing!) and we didn’t even have any major posts up yesterday. We’ve only been around for a month now, at this point, but on behalf of John and myself, thank you for reading this blog. We’re trying more and more to make it worth a daily visit when you’re trying to put off work. Enough of that, let’s get to the pre-game. And the swear words.
