Hello, stranger! Former Bruin Benoit Pouliot ties up Brad Marchand - USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Bruins face the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight, the game having been rescheduled (and we've had a few...) due to the blizzard. This begins the Bruins' final, rigorous regular season stretch of three games in four days.

The Bolts are out of the playoff picture, but then again, that hasn't stopped teams from beating the Bruins before. Be sure to watch Steven Stamkos, who is vying for the Rocket Richard trophy, only two goals behind Alex Ovechkin:

  • We're less than a week from playoffs. Here is a rundown of what scouts report the Bruins' problems to be. [ESPN]
  • Granted, it has been an unusual, emotional week for the city of Boston as a whole, but Claude Julien feels the team should be "thriving on it, instead of using it as a crutch." [SportsIllustrated]
  • Peter Chiarelli noted that players supposedly competing for ice time... have not. [ESPN]
  • Expecting the Bruins to simply flip the switch for this year's playoffs? Look back to last year. [MassLive]
  • The hunger is not there, and there is little time to find it. [BostonHerald]
  • Andy Brickley was struck by "almost indifference" in the Bruins game against the Flyers, and went in-depth on other issues he saw. [WEEI]
  • Claude Julien is done defending the team's performance. He has now opened up with both barrels. [NESN]
  • Here were the lines at morning skate. [NHLBruins]
  • Nathan Horton was not on ice. [NHLBruins]
  • It's official! The Traveling Jagrs have a Boston representative now! [ProHockeyTalkNBC]
  • Perhaps Jaromir Jagr should wear this sweater? [MikeSpicer]
  • Former Bruin Steve Begin was nominated by the Calgary press for the Masterton after recovery from hip surgery. [CalgaryHerald]
  • Let's begin the run to the playoffs with a Mike Spicer cartoon, eh? [MikeSpicer]
  • Martin St. Louis (GO, CATS!) netted a hat trick in the Bolts win over the Leafs, and the Blackhawks have a lock on the President's Trophy. [PuckDaddy]
