Today on Bruins Daily

Tyler Seguin makes his return to Boston since being traded from the B’s to the Stars this summer. Anthony Travalgia will break down Seguin’s first appearance against his former squad at the TD Garden.

And of course, we will have live coverage of tonight’s game on Twitter. Be sure to follow us at @BruinsDaily and share your thoughts using #DailyLive in your tweets.

In case you missed it

Bruins Daily is hosting a watch party tonight at The Greatest Bar. Add yourself to the guest list before its too late. Those who are on the guest list will get to skip the line at the door and receive a free pizza.

In addition to tonight’s watch party, we also have our third annual Frosted Fall Benefit for the Boston Bruins foundation Friday night at the Cask ‘N Flagon. Click here to purchase tickets and don’t forget to view the silent auction and raffle items.

Chris Chirichiello wrapped up the Red Sox World Series run by naming the Sox as his Player(s) of the week.

Know the enemy

Of course, all the attention turns to the returns of Seguin (15 points) and Rich Peverley (7 points) here in Boston. But the Stars have some other talented players, including captain Jamie Benn, who is second on the team with 13 points. Alex Chiasson is second among rookies with 10 points, while Erik Cole and Ray Whitney provide Dallas with experience.

Despite the talent, the results aren’t there yet for first-year Dallas coach Lindy Ruff. The former Buffalo bench boss is 6-6-2 in his first season, but the pieces are in place. The Stars haven’t made the postseason since 2008, but the new divisional format should benefit them in the long run.

Peverley’s return sparks quite the video tribute from the fine folks at Stanley Cup of Chowder.

Appropriately enough, the Bruins will host Military Appreciation Day on Monday (Veterans Day) against the Tampa Bay Lightning. (

League linkage

In light of the Ray Emery-Braden Holtby scuffle, the NHL is discussing a 10-game suspension for goalies who drop the gloves. In other news, John Scott still only got seven games for his cheap shot on Eriksson. (Pro Hockey Talk)

Meanwhile, Mark Spector says that the league GM’s made progress by not putting a waiver claim on Patrick Kaleta. (

Tweets of interest

We’re asking you some of your memories of Seguin in a Bruins uniform:

And the Red Sox owners make a classy gesture by thanking the city of St. Louis with a front page ad.


For something completely different

Today is Election Day, and Bostonians are about to elect a new Mayor. That said, I am going to miss Mayor Mumbles. Without him, we wouldn’t have memorable quotes such as “Varitek splitting the uprights” and “KJ and Hondo.”
