(updated many a time below)
Got to get these game-day posts in early these days.
The Bruins have been injured and stricken with the pig flu quite a bit lately, which is preventing them---at the moment---from being as awesome as they were last season. Milan Lucic and that Marc Savard fella have been out with injuries, but there is talk that both of them might be ready to play just in time for tonight. Lucic in particular is a "game time decision," so we'll keep you updated as the long day wanes.
Me? I'd like to see the Thrashers win 5 in a row, and then even more games in a row. Not sure whether Bryan Little will be back in the fold tonight, but if he is I can see him re-igniting against the Bruins. Again, there will be updates.
Oh hey why not watch this video of comical Bruins-related folk like Jack Edwards and Mike Milbury talk all about the Atlanta Thrashers? It's actually quite good. Pedobear would approve.
UPDATE: No Lucic tonight, though it looks like Savard made the trip. We only know this thanks to the Chronicle's long-standing friend and ally the Artist Formerly Known as Maali, now paying tribute to the no-matter-how-popular-he-was-he's-actually-quite-underrated LL Cool J as "Around the Way Girl." Thank you, double agent!
UPDATE II: The Twitter speaks, I only record:
No Savard and no Lucic!
UPDATE III: Massive props to the Thrashers video folks. They've been doing an absolutely, no qualifications, excellent job this season.
UPDATE IV: According to ESPN, Lucic didn't make the initial trip but apparently he'll be joining his team before game-time. He is still, though, a "game-time decision." As are Little and Kubina.
UPDATE V: We have, thanks heavens, the Mullet Seal of Approval.
