Hello my little seamonkeys, Alexandra Cabot here and tonight the Bruins take on the Habs. Wheeeee. Can you handle it? Sorry.
Both teams are getting ready to hit the ice for warm ups and the ‘You’re Ghey’ chants have already started. One of these nights I’m going to have to explore. But I will be here too keep you up to date on everything on the ice. Comment – chat it up and cheer on the B’s!
The press box is packed to the gills tonight. I usually end sitting next to the usual suspects, but tonight we’re surronded by every other news organization under the sun. Who doesn’t love a great rivalry?
Bruins starting six are:
L Milan Lucic
D Zdeno Chara, D Aaron Ward
C Phil Kessel, C Marc Savard

"Un autre but a été marqué! Nous aurons besoin de vin supplémentaire pour noyer nos douleurs ce soir." - Montreal Canadiens fans.
It’s only the third game of the season, but we got a pretty big one coming up here. Tonight marks the first Northeast Division matchup for the Bruins, and it’s against the toughest opposition the Bruins will face within the division, the Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens are a dangerous team, and the Bruins need to avoid getting swept by them during the regular season, like they did last year. In this post, I could list points to look for, and matchups to watch, but (and I’m proud to say this) I ain’t no Brian Engblom. You want a breakdown of this clash between Northeast Division titans, the first meeting since the Canadiens eliminated the Bruins in Round 1 of last year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs? Read a newspaper.
Here’s everything else you need to know to root for the Bruins and against the Canadiens. Y’know, because you are totally capable of influencing the outcome of the game.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please direct your attention to: The Jumbotron’s Guide To Rattling Les Habitants (and their fans).

Not a lot from me, here in the early days of the blog, and for that, I apologize. It’s not because I don’t have anything worthy to say (at least compared to most sports bloggers) it’s just that, since I lack the resources and time to check out the Bruins camp at Ristuccia Arena or travel to Halifax and Moncton, I’ve been relying almost exclusively on Fluto Shinzawa’s reports for the Boston Globe to get my Bruins news. Anything I feel the need to write about is usually already covered by Fluto and Kevin Paul Dumont on the Globe’s awesome Bruins Blog, so I’m trying to avoid redundancies.
Therefore, after the jump, just a few thoughts on the various Timbits of news that have emerged from The Hub of Hockey on the eve of the B’s first televised game of the season.
(This post also prevents anyone from reading the godawful misfire of a “NEXT” parody I wrote this afternoon, involving Michael Ryder’s hypothetical search for a Center. Anyone know how to permanently delete things from Google Docs [and the creative center of my brain]?)
