Shawn Thornton takes a shot against the Detroit Red Wings - Elsa

Welcome to the Flortheast, Detroit Red Wings! No reason not to dive on in, Here! Have two quick doses of the Boston Bruins.

 Boston Bruins take the ice at TD Garden at 7PM, radio coverage on WBZ-FM/98.5, video stream on bostonbruins.com:

  • Six players will NOT be on ice tonight, as the Bruins roster has been whittled down. [CausewayCrowd]
  • One may be returning to the ice. Gregory Campbell has made strides, although Patrice Bergeron will likely sit again. Peter Chiarelli spoke at what he liked in Carl Soderberg 's game so far, and that Torey Krug, Matt Bartkowski, and Dougie Hamilton still have a foothold on the roster. [BostonHerald]
  • So far, after two preseason tilts, here are three thoughts. [BruinsDaily]
  • The answer to the third line? Not-Seventh-Player-Award-Worthy Daniel Paille. [TheFourthPeriod]
  • So far: Reilly Smith appears to have the third line spot sewn up with Chris Kelly and Soderberg (all lefties,) Jordan Caron will likely be the thirteenth forward. Hamilton and Krug should have spots, with Bartkowski the seventh defenseman. Niklas Svedberg is making a fine case to be Tuukka Rask 's backup. [WEEI]
  • Unlike his midseason insertion into the Penguins' lineup, Jarome Iginla has made a seamless fit with the Bruins for a number of reasons, and having a preseason to acclimate has made a big difference. [TheGlobeAndMail]
  • Rask spoke warmly about his former goalie tandem partner Tim Thomas, and sees nothing but success for him in what he can bring to the Panthers. Campbell understands having to watch from the sideline, and concurs, citing Thomas' competitive nature.  [ESPN]
  • Don't count Chad Johnson out yet! Peter Chiarelli assures that he has seen him play better, and he is not alarmed about his performance in Montreal. Claude Julien agrees. [PatriotLedger]
  • In fact, Johnson and Subban will be this evening's tandem in goal. Campbell will take the ice. Here's the posted roster for tonight. [NHL.Bruins]
  • Matt Bartkowski has come a long way, and discusses his early career at Ohio State, being an American-born defenseman, and his draft experience. [USCHO]
