Daniel Paille Returns From Injury, Thanks Kings' Dustin Brown for Hard Hit

BOSTON -- As if to test Daniel Paille's fitness to be back on the ice, Los Angeles Kings center Dustin Brown seemed to go straight at the Bruins forward early in the first period.

Game Day Preview: 29. Los Angeles Kings @ Boston Bruins. WE MISS YOU ALREADY ZDENO!

I feel like it's been forever since the Bruins played a game, but that's probably because Saturday night I was drowning myself in Narragansett beer and Jameson whiskey at a Christmas party with the Bruins game on in the background. It was a good win, but it came at a price. Tim Thomas was pulled before the start of the third period and Zdeno Chara left with an injury. There...
