Game Day: Leafs vs. Bruins

A couple of interesting story lines to follow for this evening...

  1. The return of Raycroft to Boston. With the Bruins goaltending situation in complete disarray, there has been a little bit of noise made on how and why the Bruins traded Raycroft ^, who has been stellar if you conveniently forget the two games against Ottawa a few weeks ago. I am looking forward to seeing the reception he gets, and just how fired up Raycroft will be to 'stick it to them'.
  2. The absence of Mats. The audition to fill the role of leader, and front-line scorer starts tonight... Overall expect multiple people stepping up to fill in, but don't be surprised if one of the young guys really shows us something.
  3. Kubina is back. Oops, nope, not quite ^. He is flying to the Czech Republic to be with his girlfriend who is giving birth. Expect him back on Saturday.
Should be an interesting game. On a personal note, watching Boyes skate for the Bruins continues to pain me. Talk about the one that got away... how good would he look on a line with Stajan and Steen right about now?
