This is my first trip to Boston, I'm going to see the game. I'm super excited.
How cool would it be if you came in sporting the old halloween Nucks jersey with Neely 21 on the back? I'd be confused as hell sitting behind you. "Do I razz this guy or buy him a beer? how about both?".

Have fun and enjoy your stay.

I want Burrows and that piece of crap Lapierre to take a beating and I hope Lucic takes on one of them.

Also wouldn't mind seeing Chara have some fun with Kesler.

I just really hate the Canucks and everyone of their players and their coach and even the GM.

So they have a mascot, I hate it also....

This is one game I wouldn't mind the boys forgetting about the 2 points and settling some crap.
Not at all...You are The Godfather.

I see them taking care of a few players right off the start-Hansen, Burrows and Lapierre. Then depending on how the game plays out maybe lighting a fire late in the 3rd.

To the Canucks fan going to the game tomorrow: I wouldn't be too worried, to be honest. If this was a Saturday night game I'd feel differently, but seeing as it's a matinee start, I really don't expect you to encounter too much aside from the standard heckling. Hell, I had the same hesitations last month when I went down to Philly to see the B's play. Same situation -- Saturday game, hostile environment, fans known to be tough. Honestly, I didn't hear one word from their fans (probably helped that the B's blew the Flyers out of the building, but still).

My advice: don't be obnoxious, lay low, avoid making eye contact with any questionable types, laugh at any insults sent your way, and don't go to the bathroom by yourself/between periods. Do this, and you'll be A-OK.

But hey, Happy Birthday to me (today). Can't ask for a better way to spend it.
Happy Birthday puckmonster, and welcome to Boston. What you've heard is mostly correct, the vast majority of B's fans will be cool...unfortunately though there are those few for whom your respect or lack thereof will be of little consequence: they'll be seeing red if you're wearing blue, especially after a few beers, and this game more than most will have its share of this type. Personally I wouldn't rock the Nucks gear unless I was prepared to deal with shoves and other forms of provocation.

Just wanting you to have a great experience (um, except on the scoreboard obv!).

I can see AV and his coaching "braintrust" sitting at Tresca's watching the game.

AV - "ok, guys, here's what we gotta do on saturday. Neutralize all 4 of their lines by....guys? GUYS? Where is everybody? What's that i hear, whimpering? What's under the table? GUYS! Get out from under the table, stop crying, and for the love the lord stop this fetal position nonsense, it's freaking me out!!"

Drop the puck already! I can't wait for this one. To be honest, I don't think Burrows or Lapierre will feel any wrath. I doubt they would drop the gloves against Lucic, Horton....or pretty much anybody. Well, maybe against "noted tough guy David Krejci" lol. They are going to do their best to agitate and draw penalties. That's their game, not dropping the gloves.

I hope Luongo gets lit up like a Christmas tree. It's only fitting because it's Orthodox Christmas and Lucic (like myself) will be celebrating because of his Serbian background.

My only concern is that the Bs are playing their 3rd game in a little under 4 days. The blowouts against NJ and Calgary came at a great time. It gave Julien a chance to rest some of his top players late in each game.

This is actually a big game for the bruins. Not because I think the Canucks are better, but it's one of those games where they could lose easily if they don't get up for it (Dallas) or if they let their emotions lead to stupid penalties (Carolina)

If the bruins can keep rolling and beat the Canucks handily, I'll know they are still mentally tough enough to keep going and execute like we know they can.

McQuaid. McQuaid is the guy Hansen speared in the berries in the final minutes of Game 7.

If Daniel Sedin is to be believed, their game plan is the same as the cup finals, wait for the Bruins to take penalties, then capitalize.

A blindside vs being speared in the nads.

I think if I was Ference, I'd concede the honor. Besides, we know McQuaid will do it right.

I just think that Ference is more of Hansen's "type"

I would love to see McQuaid get a hold of him though.

Yep, I'm celebrating too. My wife is cooking a dinner befitting the occasion.

Contemplating doing Gunning With God tomorrow morning: "You write your sins on a clay pigeon, they fire them up in the air, and you pulverize them with a 12-gauge shotgun full of our Lord's forgiveness."

All I know is if the B's lose this one the fans should throw an appropriate riot, maybe flip over a picture of a car, idly threaten a store front window, pretty much close to nothing while expressing the loss.

In the not so distant past it would be hard to say we could count on the bruins to show up big for a game like this. Not too long ago we really layed an egg in that penguin game after the savvy hit. The bruins have come a long way since then. Not just on the ice, but the organizational as a whole. The entire core and culture to this team has a new definition and purpose. The bruins will be in front of the home crowd against a team that really pissed them off last year and built up a lot of hate in situations the bruins couldnt take care of in a championship series. They were the better team for not doing it then and they were the better hockey team overall, the champions. Tomorrow is a setup for a statement game. I am in FULL confidence that every player, coach, trainer, manager, and front office person has had this game highlighted for the very reasons we all have been discussing recently and were plainly obvious to carry over from the series. I really wish I was better with words because I feel like there is going to be a lot of passion and emotion wrapped up in this game from all parts of the bruins organization. It's great to know that they care now and not have to wonder. With all that said, I remember saying the following in the GDT's before our home games in boston and it seemed to work pretty well.

Sleep tight canucks, sleep tight.
