Fresh Links: Bearing Down Edition

Michael Ivins-USA TODAY Sports

A new series, a new start, a lot of new faces?

The Bruins face the Rangers tonight in Game 1 with a lot of green on the blue line. Rookies Hamilton, Bartkowski, and Krug will need to play solid games. Marchand may have been injured at practice, might we see Soderberg in?

  • News from Morning Skate... lineup, also Brad Marchand injured? [WEEI]
  • We can always hope that THIS is what's up. Muahahaha! [@WeberKing]
  • So, Zdeno Chara "isn't much of a player" other than his slap shot? Say WHAT? [WallStreetJournal]
