If we’ve learned one thing over the last couple of weeks, it’s that the Boston Bruins have a hot take on Halloween candy.
Namely, they do not like candy corn. Except for injured Boston Bruins forward Nick Foligno, who stands alone in his enjoyment of the longtime candy associated with the Halloween holiday. David Pastrnak said he wasn’t even sure what candy corn was, but both other members of the Perfection Line gave the definitive thumbs down on the Halloween confection in this fun video from the Black and Gold.

Now if the Boston Bruins move on Eastern candy and give the big thumbs down to Peeps, then we are really talking about something here. Because Peeps absolutely suck and there’s no two sides to that argument.

*Mackenzie Blackwood has started the vaccination process for COVID-19 leaving just one unvaccinated NHL player left in the league. I guess he’s done with his “research” of social media memes.
CORRECTION: Mackenzie Blackwood has started the vaccination process for COVID-19, a Devils team spokesman has confirmed. He received the 1st dose of the vaccine at the end of last week. He will have to continue following unvaccinated protocols until two weeks after the 2nd dose.

*For something completely different: Dune looked and sounded beautifully epic and it had some interesting characters. Still, it was also boring in parts and it lacked the heart I enjoy in any movie that I watch. Worth seeing in the theatre because of the epic sci fi scope, but I don’t think I need to see it again.
