(Not so) Deep Thoughts

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins

I am not braving the weather to get to Wilmo before the charter flight, so here goes nothing:

  • I have never met someone so universally loved as John "Chief" Bucyk. Period.

  • The TD Banknorth Garden was done up to the 9th floor, with little details like bottles of wine in the premium spaces with #9 on them, to Johnny’s hockey cards on the video boards, to the figurines that were given out and the "I (heart) Chief" posters -- it was just a great night. Nobody deserves it more than Chief.

  • Nice game for Andrew Ference and Jeremy Reich and Brandon Bochenski. Look for a new story on them in your Cybear newsletter. Oh, you are not a Cybear member? Well, just click here.

  • Loved the piece on Garden HDX where Robert "The Chief" Parish congratulated John "Chief" Bucyk. Classic.

  • The sense of relief of having won and having won on a special night was palpable in the Bruins locker room. The team is playing "better" but they looked to be feeling "better".

  • Here’s hoping that Patrice Bergeron and Glen Murray are feeling "better" sooner, rather than later.

  • Found the college hockey display on the Garden’s fourth floor -- near the Hub. It’s very cool to have representation for one of the Garden’s staple events.

  • Take a second to ponder: Did you notice that the B’s have won 4 of 5?

  • Double take: Did you notice that the Isles are 5-1-4 in their last 10?

    This is a HUGE road trip, my friends, so keep it here for the latest.
