Between the turkey, pumpkin pie, and stuffing we’ve all finally digested that horrible game the Bruins played against the Red Wings. The Bruins had a Thanksgiving practice, and the team came back in the third period to beat the New York Rangers 3-2. Here’s how we saw the game as it unfolded (Causeway Crowd)

Here is how the Boston Bruins saw the game. (Boston Bruins)

In all fairness, here is how the Rangers saw their hopes get dashed by Zdeno Chara today. The Rangers experienced their own Black(and Gold) Friday. (New York Rangers)

There was another great thing about this afternoon’s game. Patrice Bergeron broke a six game cold spell (that has really been hurting me in my fantasy team) with his third period goal. Read what the guys over at Comcast have to think about the action and Bergeron’s goal. (CSNNE)

With the stalled performance of players like Bergeron, the Boston Bruins have gotten a lot of help from their defensemen, especially from Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug. The folks over at Bleacher Report take a look at how the Bruins have been scoring and pose the question “Are the Bruins relying too much on their defensemen for production this season?) I’m sure Bobby Orr would have a thing or two to say about high scoring defensemen. (Bleacher Report)

Cody McLeod is known to the Minnesota Wild as Matt Cooke is known to the Boston Bruins. McLeod is likely to rack up a big game ‘Shanaban’ for his latest escapade into stupidity. This time around he chose to board the Wild’s Jonas Brodin. (If he did it to Cooke, I think Bruins fans would be lining up to get this man steak dinners.) Puck Daddy shows the play. It’s obvious, it’s blatant, and it certainly earned the major and the ejection. Take a look at it here. (Puck Daddy)
