*no it wasn't but shut up
An interesting note: this will be the fourth straight game the Bruins have played against Original Six opponents since last week's trip to Chicago.
Frivolous Wager of the Night: Poor Mike Van Ryn is having a rough year. First, our very own Milan Lucic sends him careening through the glass at the Garden. Just a couple of weeks later, Montreal's swarthy Greek purse-snatcher Tom Kostopoulos smashes into him from behind and sends him out until December with a concussion and various other injuries. (Kostopoulos has since been suspended 3 games by the NHL.)
Needless to say, Van Ryn will not be taking the ice at the Air Canada Centre tonight, but we've got the exclusive Vegas lines on what bizarre and horrifying injuries the unlucky defender could sustain regardless:
Breaks leg in bizarre futon accident while getting dressed 10:1
Is body-slammed through glass of press box while watching the game 25:1
Massive hemorrhage following paper cut received while opening stack of angry letters from Quebec accusing him of diving 60:1
Sprains tongue while attempting to properly pronounce the phrase "out and about" 150:1
Is electrocuted in own bathtub after elaborate, cartoon-like series of trips culminating in him landing in full tub with a toaster stuck on his foot 500:1
Suffocates under the weight of his own irrelevance 3:1
Serious prediction of the night: This'll be a close game, I think, but I see us taking it 4-3 thanks to some early scoring and Toronto's penalty-killing struggles.
