My pre-season ironman streak – five games in as many nights – comes to an end when the Bruins visit the Bell Centre tonight.
I’d be there if I thought I could live-blog through my tears on Patrice Brisebois Official Retirement Night.
But it will be just too emotional.
No, seriously, it’s an upper-body injury: my heart dictates that I attend the birthday dinner of one of my best friends this evening.
Unlike Max Pacioretty, who has a shoulder separation courtesy of a Brooks Orpik hit Monday night and could be out two weeks, I’ll be back in action on Saturday. Live blogging will resume for the hugely important pre-season Seventh Game against the Buffalo Sabres.
Feel free to Comment on tonight’s action.
