Rolston assisted on Benoit Pouliot’s game-winning goal in Tuesday’s 5-2 victory over the Lightning… Seventeen of the Bruins shaved their heads yesterday for charity. They should be flying tonight without all that salad weighing them down. Adam McQuaid looks especially impressive with his trademark mullet in place. Party in the back, business everywhere else... Ian Walsh and Stephen Walkom will be the referees. Tony Sericolo and Brian Murphy will be the linesmen.
