Tonight one team with crappy defense faces off against another team with crappy defense at the MTS Centre!
Is that accurate anymore? I don't even know what's going on with the Jets, it's like they're playing musical chairs with their players at the moment and I'm getting lost. Christ Thorburn (praise be his name) is out apparently and Joel Armia is in. That's one thing I know for sure. Another thing I know for sure is that it appears as if young Patrik Laine has been moved to play with Fefe and Wheeler. If that is not something new, please forgive me as I've already admitted that I'm pretty lost with these line changes.
On the other side of the ice is this:
Yep. The Bruins have been pretty unimpressive this season however a few players have had little fires lit under their bums and could prove to be a challenge. As much as you may hate him and his giant schnozz you have to admit that Brad Marchand has had an impressive few months starting with his impressive play in the World Cup and continuing so far this season. One problem the Jets won't have to try to solve is Patrice Bergeron who is out with injury.
This game is a crapshoot. Who's gonna win? I couldn't even make a logical prediction. Let's get to the lines, shall we?
|Patrik Laine||Mark Scheifele||Blake Wheeler|
|Nikolaj Ehlers||Mathieu Perreault||Drew Stafford|
|Kyle Connor||Alexander Burmistrov||Joel Armia|
|Brandon Tanev||Adam Lowry||Shawn Matthias|
|Joshua Morrissey||Dustin Byfuglien|
|Toby Enstrom||Tyler Myers|
|Ben Chiarot||Paul Postma|
|Brad Marchand||David Backes||David Pastrnak|
|Ryan Spooner||David Krejci||Danton Heinen|
|Matt Beleskey||Austin Czarnik||Jimmy Hayes|
|Dominic Moore||Riley Nash||Noel Acciari|
|Zdeno Chara||Brandon Carlo|
|Torey Krug||Rob O'Gara|
|John-Michael Liles||Colin Miller|
You can watch this actual tragedy take place at 7pm on TSN3 and in case you somehow got here and live in the Boston area NESN has you covered I believe.
