    Not just you . Seems like we are always sitting around waiting for the next game.

    All 4 home games for the world series on on Bruins game days, also one of the three road games, I hate having to DVR the Bruins.

    Long delays between games suck.

    I think we all got a little too used to last years schedule...as much as I liked having games everyday/every other day, it was pretty tough on the teams. Then again, breaks just suck anyways.

    Kinda hoping Chad Johnson will play this game, so Rask stays fresh for San Jose, who I think will be our toughest opponent yet.

    I'm really excited for the San Jose game, they have a great team this year.

    I see they have a new Reilly Smith interview on the Bruins website.

    World Series trumps hockey for the next 2 weeks. TiVo is going to get a workout.

    I hated the schedule last season. I needed a break every once in awhile.

    Last year's schedule was too compressed, obviously due to the short season.I generally like to watch every game,with the help of my DVR, but last year, it was impossible to keep up. I enjoy the break between games.

    Yes,it is possible Johnson will get a start considering the only time he will play is when we are playing back to back games.It isn't an easy task subbing for someone like Rask.I hope he is up to the task.

    It isn't just you.

    I think the compressed season last year sort of spiked me with games every other day. Seems like bruins have a lot of long stretches for the beginning of the season compared to other teams. Bruins seem to be two or three games fewer than others.

    Buffalo really sucks this year-going to be interesting if the machine like team from Tampa shows up or the messy, disorganized team from the Florida game.

    I mostly hate Buffalo-in this division buffalo is right after the Habs when it comes to most hated teams.

    Why the hate for Buffalo? Historically, we usually own them.

    San Jose is good and they will be coming in with at least two days rest and we will be on the second leg of a back to back with travel between. Going to be a tough game.

    I don't like Ruff (hatred started before his firing) and it really don't like Kaleta and Other players.

    I just hope the B's don't look past the Sabre game like you guys are.

    This game might take the cake for lowest ratings for an NHL game all year.

    All of Boston and NE will be watching the World Series, and the Sabres just suck so people in WNY and Southern Ontario will barely watch them. Then there are special fans like me who won't watch the Sabres to watch the Red Sox. :nod:

    I will be watching hockey (not really a baseball fan) but I imagine nbcsn isn't super excited that the Bruins are their featured game on Wednesday. But my guess is ratings are going to be awful for hockey.

    This layoff between games is a bit much, not sure why we have such gaps and then back to backs. Makes no sense

    Ha Reilly Smith takin' the easy way out:

    "I don’t cook that much so I usually rely on my roommates to do that kind of stuff. I am more of the apartment morale, I like to keep that high; keep movies on. So I’m not really a cook or a cleaner but if you can find a good roommate that can do that for you, it’s perfect."

    I am psyched for the Sharks game. My daughter is flying home from Calif. to see her two favorite teams play. ...B's are her #1. ;) . It will be good to see her.
