Niklas Svedberg for the WIN! - Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

In his belated debut, Niklas Svedberg calmly lived up to the hype.

 The Bruins defeated the Predators on a Marchand overtime goal, sparing Nicklas Svedberg a shootout in his debut. 

  • The synopsis of the win- Bruins overcome a "dud of a middle frame." [NewEnglandHockeyJournal]
  • A Brad Marchand snipe sealed it in overtime. Niklas Svedberg held the fort for nearly two periods before a sloppy Bruins line change (stop me if you've heard this) with 1:56 left in the second allowed a Viktor Stahlberg tally. Johnny Boychuk and Jarome Iginla each scored. [BostonHerald]
  • Svedberg was solid in his postponed debut, Claude Julien indicated he'd be in Boston again very soon. Dougie Hamilton and Carl Söderberg were welcomed back. Tuukka Rask wore a "Free Thornton" tee shirt in the dressing room. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Sadly, Svedberg's family was unable to book travel to attend. He was quick to acknowledge Matt Bartkowski for blocking one likely goal. [BostonHerald]
  • Marchand was not all that certain of the move that got him past Mike Fisher for the game winning goal. Ryan Spooner is proving to be a crafty playmaker. [MetroWestDaily News]
  • Reilly Smith WHO? Carter Camper 's former college linemate has proven to be smart, slippery, skilled, strong, and coachable. He is also almost Chris Kelly -esque in wishing to fly under the radar. [WEEI]
  • Take three... from last night's victory. [BruinsDaily]
  • Peter Chiarelli is in no rush to attempt to acquire a defenseman. [TheFourthPeriod]
  • What if? Thankfully, the win meant no losing streak, no sad debut for a young goalie, and a high note to lead into next week's California trip. [PatriotLedger]
  • It's true: With or without the Bruins, Jarome Iginla flat-out owns the Predators. [Tennessean]

  • Nathan Horton celebrated his return to the ice with a power play goal and a win with the Columbus Blue Jackets. [JacketsCannon]
  • Statistics don't lie: Teams are mostly better without their "scrubs," so suspending them for dity hits actually rewards teams! [HookedOnHockey]
  • Keeping up with the World Junior Championship. [TheGlobeAndMail]
