Carl Soderberg, Milan Lucic, Torey Krug, and one ecstatic fan relish the second Swedish goal. - Paul Bereswill

Two games, two sweet 6 goal victories!

The Bruins return from the Island to host the Florida Panthers tonight at 7pm. 

  • Here's a tidy recap. The Islanders lost on goaltending and defense. [NewEnglandHockeyJournal]
  •  Loui Eriksson scored first, after which the teams traded goals. Momentum metronomed from one team to the other. A sweet power move by Carl Söderberg resulted in the go-ahead goal for the Bruins. Chad Johnson was solid in net. Brad Marchand is learning by example from Jarome Iginla. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • It was the second line that led in scoring. Turnovers by Gregory Campbell and Dougie Hamilton led to Islander goals. Chara took a penalty for retaliating against Cal Clutterbuck. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • The PBR line is smoking hot. It is good news for the Bruins, who rely on contributions from all lines and had been leaning heavily on the KIL line so far. [Boston.CBSLocal]
  • Chara reached his 500 point milestone where it all began for him, with the Islanders. Another 26-year-old former college defenseman with local ties made his NHL debut... for the Islanders. [BostonHerald
  • There is a "good possibility" Chris Kelly will return to the lineup tonight. [Bruins.NHL]
  • The Bruins host the Panthers tonight, and Tim Thomas will be in net. He spoke about his year off, recharging and reconnecting with his family, how he was confident leaving the Bruins in Tuukka Rask 's hands, and his disappointment at not earning a slot on Team USA. [ESPN]

Elsewhere around the rink: 

  • The NHL and NHLPA stand united in reconsidering sending players to Sochi if any significant incident leaves them questioning security. SAFETY FIRST. [SBNation]
  • An Amherst College hockey player is in the trenches fighting homophobia, and she'd like you to know that things are not that much better in the USA than in Russia. [TheBostonGlobe]
  •  Hooky for hockey? Guess what percentage of Canadians plan to call out from work to see Olympic hockey. [GLobalNews]
  •  Hockey is not first in the official ranking of popularity of North American professional sports... yet. [TheHockeyNews]
  • But NHL fans ARE number one in another demographic category. [SportsMediaWatch]
  • Here's a primer on hockey terminology. [BroHockey]
  • In case you missed it, one Canadian's take on the Kings vs. Ducks outdoor game (and spectacle) at Dodger Stadium, with illustrations. [Grantland]
