It has been quite a week for the Bruins. Thomas taught Miller how to take contact in a game and not be a whiny *****.Benoit Pouliot showed up to help the Bruins beat the Devils into submission.So really it is no surprise that after winning six games in a row coming into Thursday night's game and having a busy week that the effort wasn't quite there. This game was a snore fest for the most part. Few exchanges here and there that were awesome but for the most part both teams just didn't seem into it. Well the Bruins didn't seem into it. The Blue Jackets just suck. Seriously. What an awful, awful team. Poor Rick Nash is wasting away in Columbus. Dude would be better off in Florida and that is saying something. After the jump..... Tuukkamania is running wild, McQuaid has mullet power, Shawn Thornton is pissed and Columbus really, really sucks......  - We know this has nothing to do with the game but we're super excited that the Bruins are apparently the bad guys ...

So, Dave Grohl Hung Out With Some Boston Bruins Players On Wednesday (Photos)
