So, how do you like the third jersey? It’s definitely different from what the Boston Bruins traditionally wear. And it’s a far cry from the days of Pooh Bear (the way the Bruins played in the aftermath of the lockout, Eeyore would’ve been a better character for their jerseys).

Anyway, here’s what it looks like and also a number of players will be on hand to sign the new threads at the Pro Shop at the Garden today.

•For those wondering, Patrice Bergeron and Marc Savard were given today off and defenseman Dennis Wideman had to leave the team for personal reasons. He’s scheduled to be back with the club in time for Wednesday’s game in Buffalo. And Marco Sturm is still out with an upper-body injury. Head coach Claude Julien still says Sturm is day-to-day and is improving.
