We bypassed the morning skate today in favor of a 4-year-old birthday party — I am just now coming down off my sugar high — so we’ll have to find out later whether Scott Gomez is a possibility for tonight against the Bruins.
The guess here is no based on Gomez’s absence from practice yesterday, but stay tuned. It should be a good one tonight regardless.
Personally, I welcome seeing the Bruins back in the mix. Having spent my college years in New England (where I admittedly grew tired of hearing about “Ray Bock” and Cam Neely) I at least came to appreciate the region’s devotion to hockey.
