  • Just the facts, ma'am, short and sweet. David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron were wizards at the faceoff circle. Carl Söderberg helped save the day. [NewEnglandHockeyJournal]
  • Tuukka Rask was sharp in his second of back-to-back games, as he has been in the past. [BostonHerald]
  • Especially later in the game, when the Bruins were flagging, Rask stayed strong. We may have gotten a glimpse of which Bruins will be called upon in shutdown situations in the playoffs. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Dougie Hamilton played, Torey Krug was scratched. Claude Julien is being conservative with his young defensemen's development. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • The Bruins are assessing options at the blueline with the playoffs approaching. [ProvidenceJournal]
  • The game had the feel of a 2-0 landslide until late in the game. The vaunted Coyotes power play was neutered. [WorcesterTelegram]

  • Shane Doan played his 1,300th NHL game, and the Coyotes still trail the Dallas Stars by one point at ninth place in the West. [ESPN]
