Brad Stuart Autographed Card

The Boston Bruins, despite a litany of injuries and not securing a single shot on the opposition's net in the entire second period, have beaten the Ottawa Senators tonight on a late goal by Brad Marchand.

I stand by my prediction that the Sens will take it in 6, but they may finish more exhausted and bruised than I initially thought.

The Bs have had nice uniforms, more often than not, in their 93-year history. I could do without the yellow uniforms of the early 1940s and alternates from 1995-2006, but generally speaking, although they tweak them a lot for an Original Six team, they stay within the boundaries of their classic, tried-and-true look.

One such uniforms is the white (home) one worn by Brad Stuart on card #18 from Upper Deck's 2006-07 Victory set:
He signed it in blue sharpie during his time with the Detroit Red Wings, probably in November 2009.

He went through back surgery six games into last season and hasn't played since, the Colorado Avalanche having bought him out at season's end. It's assumed he'll retire this summer after a full season of not playing and with NHL teams looking for fast, young blue-liners.
