Bruins-Red Wings Coverage; Dropkick (not puck!) Murphys Hit The Road Once Again

Have plenty of Bruins-Red Wings coverage up at NESN.com. Should be a great Original 6 match-up there and I'll be live blogging the game so do check-in.

According to Fluto Shinzawa at Boston.com, Wings blueliners Brian Rafalski and Jonathan Ericsson are out with the flu for Detroit and former UMaine Black Bear Doug Janik will be in the lineup for Rafalski. On the Boston side, Byron Bitz misses his second straight game with a groin injury.

The long-awaited debut of Phil Kessel in Toronto is a go for tonight at the ACC Centre where the Leafs host the Lightning. Thanks to the Bruins scoring woes, everyone seems to be talking about how much Kessel is missed in the Boston lineup. While this may be true, it will only be a matter of time before Kessel hits one of his infamous invisible streaks and misses Boston.

The Toronto media and fans will eat that kid alive once he does have a scoring slump and he will realize how easy he had it in Boston as far as media and fan scrutiny goes. As I tweeted today too, he may be humming Dixie tunes soon to block out the media, wishing he took the proposed trade to Nashville instead of Toronto.

In non-hockey news, die-hard hockey fans and Irish punk-rockers, the Dropkick Murphys start their latest tour tomorrow in Anaheim. If you have the chance to check them out as they are always an energetic and exciting show! I am looking forward to meeting up with them in Montreal at Metropolis on November 20!

Here's a clip of probably the best intro I've seen at a concert. I think the Bruins should come into this with Cam Neely and Terry O'Reilly clips playing on that giant TD Garden HD screen!
