It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

No, it’s just that awful picture of Bish’s huge squash!

Hello all. Nice job on your assignment regarding the hockey masks.

Here is a small sample of the answers you folks sent in:

One of my all-time favorites is of fairly recent vintage. I LOVED the Steve Shields tribute to Gerry Cheevers’ mask! The detail of the ears & straps painted on was fantastic. Hannu did sort of the same thing with the Slap Shot tribute mask. Steve

All Time: Gerry Cheevers Stitches
Best Tribute Mask: Steve Shields’ Gerry Cheevers Tribute
Most Intimidating Mask: Vesa Toskala’s Skull Mask

The best goalie mask has to be Ed Belfour’s helmet. The angry Bald Eagle is killer!

I definitely agree that Cheevers’ mask was the best of all time and I especially liked how Steve Shields painted his mask to look like Cheevers’ with the stitches, ears on the sides. and his hair coming out from behind the mask. For the short time Shields was here it showed he had respect for the longtime Bruins great. Jeff

Practice Notes
Lines were the same as yesterday:


Bear Bits
  • Marco Sturm was the extra forward and was not on a line, yet. And all of the defensemen skated, including Andrew Alberts and both Stuarts.

  • One player had the word “Orr” taped to his helmet and unbeknownst to him, he skated with it for several minutes. Dave Lewis saw it during a break and was hardly able to contain himself.

  • There was a lot of laughter coming from the ice today and the guys seemed to be showing no weariness or trepidation about facing Buffalo in the Garden on Thursday.

  • The drills were similar to those that the club had been using for the last couple of weeks, with lots of forechecking work, lots of odd-man rushes and shots on the goalies.

  • Coach Lewis said that he is leaning towards starting Tim Thomas on Thursday.

  • There was also a short scrimmage – the SBB line looked good.

  • By far the best part of the day was post-practice when the Mowers line plus Savard faced off against the Stastny line with Sturm. Hannu was in net against both teams in the half-ice game of 4-on-4 shinny. Stastny and the boys defeated Mowers line, and Primeau, Savard and Donovan could be seen conspiring against their “enemies” afterwards in the locker room.

    “It was good. It’s been a while. But it was nice to get out there again…I am not 100% yet but I thought it was pretty good. But hopefully tomorrow will be back to normal.”
    Forward, Marco Sturm, on returning to practice

    “You do it for fun. It helps with skills and stuff and you can try stuff that you don’t usually try…the guys make up teams and its good to be able to rag on each other, whoever wins or loses.”
    Forward, Shean Donovan, on the 4-on-4

    “We just have to be ready from the drop of the puck. We know how good they are as a team and obviously they are playing well. They’ve only lost one game, and not in regulation…I truly believe that we have good goaltending, we have a great corps of the defense, I believe that we have four lines that can contribute to this team. It’s just a matter of getting everything to gel together and start believing in each other.”
    Forward, Wayne Primeau, on Buffalo

    “Yah there’s pressure, but I am trying to think of it as an advantage, rather than putting more pressure on myself…I just go out there and try to have fun and play as hard as I can to help the team to win. I think that it’s following your instincts instead of thinking too much on the ice.”
    Forward, Patrice Bergeron, on returning to practice
