There were some ugly ones on my porch last night, but none compared to the Habs’ throwbacks (CP photo).
I know I told this Halloween story before, but it’s worth repeating for those who missed it.
Remember Scott Fraser, the terribly over-rated, good-skating winger signed for ridiculous, silly, money by the Rangers back 1998-99?
Well, the Rangers always had a team Halloween party. Fraser shows up with a bag and wearing a ski mask.
“What are you supposed to be?” one of the Rangers asked.
“My agent,” Fraser said.
Did you remember to move your clocks (and gain an hour of sleep)?
My wife always says that I gain an hour when we move the clocks ahead, when we move them back, and when we don’t move them at all. I just always sleep an hour later than I should.
Also, if you’re going to the game today, take the train. The NYC Marathon will make driving a disaster.
Here are today’s pregame notes.
Boston goalie Tuukka Rask had a shutout yesterday. Remember him from another shutout in another matinee last season?
MORNING UPDATE, 11:44 A.M.: Marian Gaborik will skate in warmups today and could possibly play against the Bruins. Higgins and Avery, who also missed Friday’s game in Minnesota, will be game-time decisions as well.
