B’s Ready for Philly?

B’s Ready for Philly?
Is Providence on the T?
Hannu Toivonen was recalled this morning after playing very well last night. If the ice had not started to thaw (thanks to the very warm weather), and if the officials had not awarded Worcester two 5-on-3 power plays, he might be riding a shutout up I-95 to Boston.

He was the P-Bruins MVP last evening, and will certainly be greeted with smiles in the Bruins locker room. No-doubt the biggest grin will come from good friend Tim Thomas -- slated to start this afternoon.

Providence impresses
BostonBruins.com thoroughly enjoyed the trip down to Providence and looks forward to returning (hopefully) for the throwback night on February 9th. Rumor has it that Bruin great Milt Schmidt, among other former Rhode Island Reds players, will be there for a flag raising ceremony.

And I just can’t miss that!

But more enjoyable than the pleasant company in the Donut and the rink in general, was the sight of Hannu Toivonen, Mark Stuart, Nate Thompson, Nathan Dempsey and Matt Lashoff -- and they all looked really good.

Providence is an exciting team, and the five "Boston Bruins" playing in Providence certainly made it a solid squad.

But the addition of Phil Kessel made the building actually vibrate.

Phil thrills Rhode Island
Most of the patrons, no doubt, had never seen Kessel play in person and he put on show with several breakaways and his natural speed.

Give him a couple of more days and the chances that he was unable to finish on Friday, will find NHL twine in the coming weeks.

Voices in the Baby B’s Room
"It’s an inspiration for all the guys here (in Providence) to have Phil come down here and play (alongside) us. With everything that he went through, not only the guys (in Boston), but the guys down here were really thinking about him (too). He is a special kid and I got to know him pretty well when I was up there -- my thoughts and prayers were with him and it’s great to see him back where he should be, flying around the ice, making plays and doing his thing."
Providence Defenseman, Nathan Thompson, on seeing Phil suit up for the P-Bruins

"It was great (to see him). Obviously we’re not up there in Boston, but you know we’re thinking about him and thinking about his progress. When he got down here today, everybody was pretty excited…he played well! And he played a lot…did a lot of good things…and almost had a couple of goals. It’s tough to miss that much time. Usually it takes a couple of games, but he looked great out there."
Providence Defenseman, Mark Stuart, on Kessel’s game

"It’s obviously a very good sign. And it’s obviously (attests) to his character and his strength as a person and a player for him to be able to come back so quickly from something so serious. It’s great to see him out there and see him happy to play. And he’s got some jump in his step which is good (to see, too)."
