Today on Bruins Daily

The Black and Gold are off until Thursday, but we here at Bruins Daily will be keeping you busy with plenty of coverage and other news regarding the site in the coming days. For today, Chris Chirichiello reveals his latest Player of the Week.

In case you missed it

Speaking of the layoff, Chris chimed in yesterday on why the four days off between games comes at a good time.

Your’s truly has three takeaways from the Bruins’ 3-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Boston.com.

Anthony Travalgia discusses Milan Lucic leading the way with two goals and a fight in Saturday’s victory.

Last, but not least, Bruins Daily chief photographer Joe Makarski provides some great shots as usual (in spite of a broken lens).

And yes, the Bruins even ended Movember with a bang! (Bruins.com video)

League linkage

The Calgary Hitmen of the CHL opened the month with a bang with their annual teddy bear toss night. Reportedly, over 26,000 stuffed animals were thrown to the ice after the Hitmen’s first goal, which broke last year’s record. It has really become a great tradition in all of hockey if you ask me.

Tweets of interest

Sean Leahy has a clever response as usual in light of Amazon using drones for home deliveries:

Some Sens fans decided to have a funeral for Alfredsson’s career in Ottawa outside the Canadian Tire Center yesterday. And yes, the reaction was a little different inside the arena:

Stat of the day

0-2: The record of Rob Ford supported teams when the embattled Toronto mayor attends football games inside the Rogers Centre. Take note Maple Leafs fans if you haven’t already, because before you know it he may steal one of your seats and enjoy a chicken wing in the process. Oh, and your team may have a similar fate as the Argos and Bills.

For something completely different

The legend known as Ron Burgundy can add curling commentary to his impressive resume as he joined TSN for “Roar of the Rings” at Winnipeg. No one immediately regrets this decision, either.
