    Today on Bruins Daily

    First off, thanks for everyone who came out to support the Boston Bruins Foundation the Frosted Fall last night at the Cask ‘n Flagon. It was another tremendously successful event, so lets do it again next year, eh?

    If you have pics, video, instagrams, and other media you want to share from last night, you can do so by tagging #FrostedFall in your tweets, status updated and any other form of social media you’re on. For the time being, here is Rene Rancourt tearing the house down as usual with the Star Spangled Banner – and he even sang part of Russia’s National Anthem:

    And of course, there is a game tonight, and we hear the Bruins’ opponent is looking for revenge. We’ll have updates throughout the B’s-Leafs contest on Twitter @BruinsDaily and be sure to share your thoughts tonight using #DailyLive.

    In case you missed it:

    Your’s truly has three takeaways from Thursday’s 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Boston.com.

    Speaking of Thursday’s contest, Brad Marchand finally got the monkey off his back with his first goal in over a month, and fellow Bruins Daily colleague Anthony Travalgia explains why this is only the beginning of better things to come for the Marsh-And.

    Reliving last year’s comeback

    We’ll take a break from our usual “Know the Enemy” portion of the GameDay Daily Buzz to relive this third period comeback from Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. For those keeping track at home this is the reason why Phil Kessel and company are out for revenge.

    For something completely different

    Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is saving fellow Torontians from smoking crack lots of taxpayers money by the way he is handling the city’s budget. But the bigger question remains, can he save his career?
