We have quite a wait before the Bruins take the ice at 8:30.

"Thankfully" that gave me, and the General, plenty of time to go food shopping.

Yay.

I just love the supermarket.

In any case, every game has turned into a playoff game for the B’s.

As such, and with an open spot in the lineup, the Bruins took the opportunity to bring up Jeremy Reich from the Providence Bruins. For those of you who enjoy hockey’s fight game, you may be in for a treat.

Slam Sports Patrick Williams wrote this on January 5th:

"Providence’s Jeremy Reich serves as the P-Bruins’ road captain, and for good reason. Pound for pound, the Saskatchewan-born Reich is one of the toughest battlers that the AHL has to offer, a middleweight who will fight heavyweights when the situation calls for such action. Last weekend’s three-game set for the Bruins saw Reich have a full dance card. First, Reich tangled with Philadelphia’s Riley Cote, an elite heavyweight. The following night at Wilkes- Barre/Scranton, Reich nearly got into it with Wade Brookbank along the home bench. Reich wrapped up his weekend with a good tilt with Hershey defenceman Deryk Engelland."

Last Sunday, the Boston Globe’s Kevin Paul Dupont wrote:

"Signed as a free agent in September 2005, Reich last season piled up 235 PIMs (almost impossible these days without getting a jail sentence), and his only NHL exposure in seven pro seasons has been a nine-game hitch with the Blue Jackets. "He’s done it for Providence, that’s for sure -- a good guy and a good soldier," said assistant GM Jeff Gorton."

Despite Reich’s pugilistic ability, the Bruins are in need of some serious punch, of a defensive and offensive nature, when they face Carolina this evening. They reside 10-points ahead of the B’s and in eighth place in the Eastern Conference and second place in the Southeast Division at 26-22-6.

Boston is 22-24-4 and second in the Northeast, 2-7-1 in their last 10 games, and 14th in the East having lost their last five contests.

Here’s the good news: The Hurricanes have lost their last three games with a 7-3 loss in Washington on Jan. 27, a 4-1 setback to Toronto on Jan. 30 and a 4-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Feb. 1. They are 1-4-1 in their last six games with their lone win in that span a 6-2 victory over Washington on Jan. 26.

More in a bit.
