Chad Johnson and Kevan Miller circle the wagons around the Bruins net - Ronald Martinez

Greenhorn goalie Chad Johnson stood tall, shaking off a scary looking stick to the face injury.

Dreadful sorry, Dallas Stars. The Bruins won in regulation, 4-2. 

  • A Gregory Campbell goal was nullified upon review, but David Krejci sniped one in with just four seconds left in the second period. Brad Marchand slipped one past Kari Lehtonen,  Milan Lucic 's goal also received scrutiny, and Patrice Bergeron sealed the game with an empty-netter. Loui Eriksson took a scary looking hit, but kept right on playing. [BostonHerald]
  • Eriksson was warmly received with a jumbotron tribute and applause. He candidly acknowledged that he needs to keep his head up, and was glad to feel just fine after taking a hit near center ice. [WEEI]
  • Deja-vu... after the Campbell goal, Lucic and the Bruins waited for review of his goal with bated breath. The KIL line reemerged with two goals, and PBR tallied the other two. [FoxSPorts]
  • Contact lens free and bloodied under his left eye, Chad Johnson cowboyed up and finished the final eight minutes of the second period, even stopping a wraparound attempt by Alex Chiasson. His steady performance buoyed his teammates. [ESPN]
  • What went right, and wrong, for the Bruins. [WEEI]
  • Zdeno Chara will be the flag bearer for Slovakia at Sochi, the Bruins have agreed to allow him to leave the team early to accomplish this. [NESN]
  • Kind words for Loui Eriksson, and a recap from the Dallas perspective. There was a vocal Bruins fan contingent in attendance. [DefendingBigD]

      • An interesting application of Kurt Vonnegut insight to the present situation of the Dallas Stars... and so it goes. [StarsBlog]
      • Down with the skills competition "loser point." Just K.I.S.S. it goodbye. [RawCharge]
      • Bruce Boudreau and the Ducks enjoyed their win over the Canucks, but didn't want to rub it in. [ProHockeyTalk]
