"Save by Budaj..." Milan Lucic takes a stab at it - Jim Rogash

He's got the Bruins' number... why are backup goalies kryptonite to the Bruins?

 The spoilsport Canadiens took two points last night. The Bruins host the Oilers tomorrow at 1pm.

  • The game in one quick swallow, less likely to cause indigestion that way. [NewEnglandHockeyJournal]
  • Tuukka Rask was pulled for reasons Claude Julien did not care to cite, the Bruins seemed disinterested, and Jay Pandolfo has retired. [TheBotonGlobe]
  • It was a lowlight game, disappointing anyone who was expecting a rivalry battle. Jarome Iginla and Shawn Thornton were both declined when they offered to drop the gloves. Bad turnovers! BAD! [MilfordDailyNews]
  • The Bruins laid an egg. Here are five things to regret form last night's performance. [SouthCoastToday]
  • Don't lay this at Rask's feet, though. The Bruins "had the fizzle of a three-day-open can of Coke." [Boston.CBSLocal]
  • Hey, at least this is worth a laugh... a proposed name for the hybrid Daniel Paille / Carl Söderberg / Loui Eriksson line. [@jeffisrael25]
  • And here's a chance to get to know Chad Johnson a bit better. He has a fraternal twin brother that resembles another Bruin... and he's met Jarome Iginla before. (Video, 2:57) [Bruins.NHL]
  • Ryan Spooner learned a lot, including what he needs to improve, by playing at the NHL level. It was the right move to return him to Providence, and he still has a bright future. [WEEI]
