Fresh Links: More Orr Edition

Johnny Boychuk... Oh, you! - Elsa

Bobby Orr continues his press tour in support of his new book "Orr: My Story" as the Bruins prepare to meet the Panthers.

The Boston Bruins have a Thursday trip to Florida to meet their new divisional rivals, the Panthers

  • In Panthers news, Tim Thomas may return to the net in time for the Bruins tilt on Thursday. [NHL]
  • The Bruins' power play is back under scrutiny again, Torey Krug understands what's at stake. Reilly Smith seems to have sparked something with Patrice Bergeron and Loui Eriksson. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • In hockey, October may be the cruellest month for snipers, and Jarome Iginla has always had a slow start. [TheGlobeAndMail]
  • Brad Marchand had fallen into bad habits early in the season, and is beginning to return to the north-south game the the Bruins seek. [TauntonGazette]
  • The way Iginla's contract is structured, he may meet the 10 game point (his first bonus bogey) before he scores a goal. [PuckDaddy]
  • Oh, you! Naughty Johnny Boychuk disrupts the filming of a Bruins:30 segment. [Bruins.NHL]
  •  In the book "OUR BOSTON: Writers Celebrate the City They Love," one story involves a colorful, old school public relations man for the Boston Bruins in the late 1960's, Herb Ralby, excerpted here. [SportsIllustrated]
  • If Bobby Orr has any say, Don Cherry's contributins to hockey merit Hall of Fame induction. [NESN]
  • Orr offered his input on rule changes to help protect players. [BrandonSun]

Elsewhere around the rink: 

  • Former Bruin Nathan Horton is biding his time as he heals, and is about a month away from skating with his new team. [BlueJackets.NHL]
  • Enjoy the opening moments of last evening's Dallas Stars vs. Colorado Avalanche game, Tyler Seguin hit Rich Peverley for an all-former-Bruin breakaway goal. It was a pity that they lost the game. [Stars.NHL]
  • Enjoy this flashback promo (and dancing Bruins at 0:47)  for the 1995 Stanley Cup playoffs, from then newbie network Fox. [YouTube]
  • Step into the shoes of Adrian Dater, as he writes about the life of a beat writer on the road. [DenverPost]
  • Maxim Lapierre will be meeting in person with Brendan Shanahan, and despite not technically being a repeat offender, this video indictment makes a case for throwing the book at him. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Hooray! Patrick Kaleta will be unable to injure anyone for 10 games. [SBNation]
  • Hockey, Harvard, and a former governer of Massachusetts (and U.S. ambassador to Canada) were the keys to gaining the release of a documentary filmmaker imprisoned in Venezuela. [TribLive]
