Also, here’s yesterday’s Daily Buzz.
Know the enemy
The Avalanche are off to their first 3-0 start in franchise history. Patrick Roy seems to be getting quite the buzz in his first year as head coach, especially after being fined $10,000 in his coaching debut. I’m sure the goaltending great will have a lot more up his sleeve during the course of the 82-game season.
Tonight’s intriguing matchup features a battle of third lines. Mile High Sticking says the Avs currently have the best third line in the league with Jamie McGinn, PA Parenteau and rookie hotshot Kyle MacKinnon, but the Bruins’ trio of Chris Kelly, Jordan Caron and Reilly Smith might have something to say about that. Either way, it should be an entertaining matchup.

The Bruins are pretty happy about their 2-0 start, but aren’t getting carried away (Joe Haggerty, CSNNE).
Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville called last night’s defeat to the Blues “a brutal loss” after Alex Steen scored the game-winner with 21 seconds left in regulation (Chris Kuc/Chicago Tribune).
Former Bruin Brad Stuart earned a three-game suspension for his head shot on Rick Nash in San Jose’s 9-2 win Tuesday night (Sean Leahy/Puck Daddy).

After Roy’s fine, Julien tried to work on getting some distance between the glass with the Avs coach during his downtime:
Julien joked he’s spent some of his down time “fortifying the glass” between the benches.

And cheer’s to the fine folks at Sam Adams for sponsoring this year’s Frosted Fall Benefit for the Boston Bruins Foundation:

For something completely different…
This might be the last straw: the partial government shutdown has hit craft brewers all across America. Hopefully they solve this mess soon, because I want my good tasting beer back!
