Mark Stuart has gone down with a broken sternum. Last time I checked, he was the longest current ironman-er on the Bruins, having played in 180+ straight games (or something like that). Now this isn't even close to Steve Larmer back in the day (if you don't know how many straight games he played in, you should be ashamed...and also look it up, as it won't ever happen again), but it was something. Stuart has been solid as hell all year, even when Chara and Chuck Morris and Dennis Wideman and Andrew Ference and Matt Hunwick (getting my drift, here???) have sucked. He and Johnny Boychuk had been playing well together, too.
I can't get over how entertaining the Leaf games have been lately. I keep laughing when the fans boo the ever-living fuck out of Ol' One Nut. It's childish, but damn, it feels good. The contests, though extremely lopsided, have been entertaining as shit to watch, even without LOOCH flying around there. I'm guessing that when they play after he returns, Vaginasarek will do his normal bullshit, but Orr will be the one challenging Looch. We're going to have to wait.
Getting pretty excited for the Winter Classic on the 1st. Hopefully it's cold enough in Boston to make some fucking ice. If not, I'm volunteering the cul-de-sac in front of my house.
