The day after dropping a 4-2 decision to New Jersey, Boston has fired GM Mike O’Connell.

Just by way of comparison, the Bruins are currently 10 points removed from the final Eastern Conference playoff spot, with 6 teams to pass. San Jose, the current home of Joe Thorton, trail Edmonton by a mere 2 points, however, for the 8th spot in the Western Conference.

With all due respect to UCLA, Memphis and everyone who fondly remembers John Calipari’s “attitude adjustment” commercials for the New Jersey Nets, the hottest collegiate sports tilt of the night will probably be this evening’s BC/BU Northeast Regional Final.
