It’s been a rough road trip for the Bruins in California, and the San Jose game may serve up more of the same. Johnny Boychuk is out for a couple of games(thankfully for a good reason: the birth of the bouncing baby Boychuks), and with the loss of Dennis Seidenberg for the season, the Bruins defense is going to have to get creative to keep pucks out of the net. On the offensive side though, things are improving. Loui Eriksson is back in the line up. Shawn Thornton is back in the line up as well. (Both were sidelined during the December 7th game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bruins are going to try to bail their way out in their final game tonight. (CSNNE)

Loui Eriksson is obviously excited to be back in the lineup. Check out how he’s doing here: (Boston Herald)

The Bruins are still committed as hard as ever. The last two games may have shown a few weaknesses by the B’s are doing all they can to get back in the win column. Read how they’re trying to earn a win. (Boston Bruins)

Dougie Hamilton is hoping that we will forget his extra time in the box for playing the puck while still in the sin bin. (Once Claude Julien has him write “I will not play the puck while in the box.” one hundred times, I’m sure he’ll be forgiven.) While many consider it the biggest bone head move of the week, we can rely on John Scott to match (or surpass) it. Watch both penalties and decide who is the bigger bonehead here. (Days Of Y’Orr)
