Your faithful puck chronicler is headed back tot he Hub of Hockey this morning, with wingman Fluto Shinzawa headed south to join the vacationing Bruins in the sunshine.
It’s a split squad today in Sunshine, FL, where a bunch of the B’s will hit the links (will Phil Kessel try that inside-out-inside approach to every green?), and the rest will board a fishing boat (all keepers must be black or gold and at least the length of a stickblade).
Update on Ray Bourque: he has been in Moncton, New Brunswick, the last few days to be at the side of his ailing father. The junior Bourque intended to be here in Raleigh, N.C., last night for Glen Wesley’s on-ice retirement fete, but more pressing matters in Moncton kept him from making the trip.
