Checking out the competition: Boston Bruins

We’re not the only team getting bit by the injury bug it seems.

NHL: Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The newly-shuffled (probably) Flyers are up in Boston tonight to take on the best top line in hockey - and the rest of the Boston Bruins. We were joined by Dan Ryan of Stanley Cup of Chowder to learn a little bit about what we should expect from a very good team off to a very slow start. Topics include:

  • How the team is overcoming the early injury problems
  • Tuukka Rask’s history of slow starts
  • The fact that everyone hates Brad Marchand, even if you root for him
  • The oft-unnoticed similarities between the Boston and Philly fan bases

Tonight’s game kicks off at the best time for a hockey game, 7PM, on the NBC Sports Network Philly. Gooooooo Flyers!
