Jets next opponent news – Boston Bruins:

Boston Herald:  Tim Thomas back in netThe Jets are facing the 37 year old Thomas who has been instrumental in the Bruins sizzling hot November.

NESN:  Daniel Paille flashes old formHe has returned to the ice after a pretty bad injury and was instrumental in rallying the Bruins against the Wings yesterday.

Boston Herald:  First-quality work by Bruins’ 4th lineA line that can score and bring some ruckus, and no we aren’t talking about the Jets GST line which wasn’t together for yesterday’s game against the Canes.  The trio of Thornton, Paille and Campbell were used at critical moments against the Wings, showing coach Julien’s trust in his 4th line.

Boston Herald:  Bruins’ streak ends at 10 with shootout lossThe B’s still have points in 11 straight games, so the Jets will have to bring their ‘A’ game in order to leave TD Garden Arena with all the points.

Boston Herald:  Few inches go long wayFew teams want to go 1 on 1 with the Wings in a shootout, so when Chara’s blast missed the goal in OT, Bruins fans had to know their team was in trouble against the talented/dynamic Wings shooters.
