WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The New York Rangers have yet to face the Bruins this season, but when the Original Six rivals clash in the first of four meetings on Saturday, the Bruins should be very familiar with the Rangers' approach. After all, it's largely a mirror of their own. "There's similarities between our teams for sure," Bruins forward Brad Marchand said. "That's just going to make it more of a battle.

Bruins' Return to Full Strength, Ending of Wikipedia Blackout Positive Outcomes of Disappointing Road Trip

Thank goodness it's Thursday. Yes, it's a great day because Brad Marchand's suspension is over and Rich Peverley is back with the Bruins, but also -- more importantly, perhaps -- Wikipedia is working again.

Bruins Prospect Dougie Hamilton Suspended 10 Games by OHL for Hit to Head
