So glad to see hockey back!! I'm curious if those will in fact be the lines for tonight, they do look right. Will be cool to see a Bourque jersey on the ice again, that's for sure!

There are lots of interesting variables about this shortened season, but one that may play into the Bruins' hands is that Rask won't have to play an entire season. We saw him kind of run out of steam in 2010 during the playoffs. This year, he'll get just enough games that he'll be red hot come the post-season.

He's also playing for a contract, remember. He knows this is his season to establish himself and make his mark. I think he has enough motivation that we don't need to worry about his hunger level.

Too bad there isn't a veteran backup with him to help steer him a bit, instead of a green rookie. But I guess he has Essensa and I wouldn't be surprised if Timmy was on his speed dial.

As for Dougie, well, he's in the same boat every future all-star D-man started out in. Every Bourque and every Lidstrom started as a rookie, with huge potential and no guarantees. I predict he'll either blossom quickly, or more slowly, or not at all. Mark it.

But, unlike Rask, he at least has some pretty good tutors on hand, in Mssrs. Chara and Seidenberg, and Ference as well. Not to mention a certain 77 hanging around.

My main concern is injuries and slow starts. Looch and Horton need to bring it. If injuries do strike, at least the B's have, if not the organizational depth, the roster flexibility to take a third-line guy like Peverly or Kelly, and promote them, and know they'll perform at least adequately.

I've been in my Horton tee since I woke up, so pumped. I'm broke as a joke, but I'm still meeting friends at the Fours to watch the game, I don't care.

I literally cannot wait.

Go !

You'll be fine. Wear your jersey -- trust me there will be other NYR fans there for sure and you'll feel like you let your team down when you see others representing with pride

Besides, we're Bostonians, which means two things:
1) Unlike other cities, we have enough of our own character and history that we never, and will never, aspire to be like New York.
2) We know the best thing about New Yorkers is most of them live there.

Again you'll be fine - just tell whomever you're going with not to be a jerk either.

Watching the B's is good for my mental health

It's nice to see many posters back on the GDT.

Just don't be an obnoxious ass and you'll be fine. People will give you **** for the jersey, but overall won't start anything unless you act like a classless dbag, which if you're on here asking, you won't/aren't.

Have fun!

I honestly don't think this Saturday could be any more awesome.

I'm going to a meet and greet with Gojira at 2:00, Bruins opener at 4:00, Gojira and Devin Townsend show at 8:00.

So ****ing excited!!!!

I take the orange line every day. There's signs/ announcements all over the place.

Ladyfan, it's for the assembly Sq project. Since you go to Sullivan it shouldn't affect you. I'm going there instead of Wellington today.

Thats legit. If you've never seen Gojira live, have fun. I saw them in a small venue last August when their original tour with LoG got cancelled. They were already in America and wanted to tour, so they played a lot of smaller venues for like $10-15 with Carbomb, and it was awesome.

thanks for the heads up - those buses are miserable. I have taken them before during other projects and they take forever!!

Hah, I'm a 'Southie' and just arrived in NYC with Bruins' jersey on. Not that I'm worried about anything in the slightest tonight, but I wish more people took your advice in general. Cheer, have fun and support your team, just don't be a d bag.

Yah, I saw them with In Flames about 4 years ago. They are stellar live. Seeing them at The Vogue, capacity of around 1,000. Devin and Gojira for $38.00...I'm pretty excited to say the least.
