Fresh Links: Some Orr Edition

Bobby Orr and Raymond Bourque watch the Bruins - Gail Oskin

The good news: Bobby Orr's autobiography is being released. The not so good news: The Red Wings arrived better rested than last time, and the Bruins struggled to convert some prime chances in Monday's matinee loss.

The Boston Bruins came up short against the Detroit Red Wings on Monday afternoon. Let's move on to sunny Florida to meet the Panthers on Thursday, shall we?
