With no TV coverage of tonight’s rookie game at TD Garden against the New York Islanders, those of you not attending the contest might be wondering how things are going.

So I’ve decided to hold the first-ever TheBruinsBlog.net live blog prior to and during the game. Whether you’re at the game or at home without any hint of what’s going on, feel free to join the chat. I’ll fire it up around 6:30 p.m., during warm-ups.
