What Do I Expect Tonight?:

Last year the Bruins gave the Caps fits as the Caps went 1-3 against them, with the one win coming at the end of the season in overtime in Boston as A.O. collected his 100th point and a pie in the face courtesy of former Captain Jeff Halpern on national cable TV (Click here to relive the memory). Boston was able to do this because the only other teams in the Eastern Conference to hold A.O. to a point or less per game last year were Montreal, Joisey, Ottawa, and Florida. Boston did it with Hal Gill and this year, they have Ottawa's secret weapon from last year, Zdeno Chara. This too is another game I can see going either way tonight, but something gives me a bad feeling about it. Though that probably has more to do with the fact that I'll be able to attend tonight's game.
