The Bruins appear to be taking the same lineup into Tuesday nights tilt against the Tampa Bay Lightning as they did in their Sunday win over the Anaheim Ducks. It will also be a nice little celebration for Bs Captain Zdeno Chara commemorating his 1,000th NHL game played last weekend against the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Center.
It appears that once again Joe Corvo, Daniel Paille and Mike Mottau will be the healthy scratches for the Bs along with Torey Krug. Here is the projected lineup based on pregame warm-ups:
Draymond Green isn’t exactly known as being the most respectful competitor, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he spent the early minutes of last night’s game against the Clippers telling Paul Pierce he isn’t a legend.
Pierce, who will retire at the end of the season, was not in the game at the time, but Green called to him from the court, telling him nobody would give him a farewell tour.
“Chasing that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that,” Green said. “You can’t get that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that.”
Green then said something else that was tough to hear through the broadcast before adding, “You thought you was Kobe?”
After the game, Pierce responded on Twitter, going to the easiest and most obvious insult available. As Chris Rock once said, “If I’m driving, and someone crashes into me with one leg, I’m gonna talk about the leg.”
Danny Ainge talks with Toucher and Rich about being patient and where the future of the Celtics stands after not making a big trade before yesterday's deadline.
