Fresh Links: OH NO BOYCHUK

I just enjoy his face ok

No news on Johnny Boychuk as of this post. After an ugly knee-on-knee hit last night, the Bruins could be looking to lean on some combination of Mike Mottau, Joe Corvo, and Greg Zanon going forward. Oh man.

In happy news, Tuukka Rask has been skating since Monday and Nathan Horton took a 40-minute spin before practice today. All is not lost, hopefully!

After the jump, while the upper playoff spots are mostly locked down, the last few spots are, as per usual, a dogfight. Somehow Brooks Laich is guaranteeing the Capitals a playoff spot. Oh boy.

  • Brooks Laich: "We're making the playoffs. We're not talking worst-case scenario." Oh boy. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Sabres are somehow still in the hunt, after pretty much everyone wrote them off a few months ago. Nice work, team I hate. [Buffalo News]
  • The Panthers are in 3rd place and somehow STILL have not clinched a spot. SouthLEAST, for sure. [Miami Herald]
