Fan yourself! - Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

If it ain't broke, the Bruins won't be fixing it.

The Bruins may be doing a whole lotta nothing this postseason.

  • Perfect Patrice Bergeron can still be the NHL15 cover player, VOTE HERE! [Covervote.NHL]
  • I'll have what THEY'RE having! Other NHL teams are very interested in poaching Bruins front-office personnel. [NESN]
  • Cam Neely wisely sees the Bruins' glass as half full, and won't rush headlong into unnecessary changes. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Jeremy Jacobs reiterated the same. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • There was also news about the Bruins planned new practice facility, and Milan Lucic 's reputation was hurt by a few "missteps" in the playoffs. [BostonHerald]
  • Nos amis at 25Stanley are envious of the Bruins' end of season party with Harvard students in Boston, as they always go to some boring supper club. Zdeno Chara and Tuukka Rask reportedly imitated wallpaper. Brad Marchand played beer pong. Reilly Smith danced, and Johnny Boychuk photobombed. The Habs may be hanging at McGill soon enough. (En français) [25Stanley]
  • The Providence Bruins are do-or-die to advance to the Calder Cup Finals tonight. LET'S GO PBRUINS! [ProvidenceJournal]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Review the front-office comings and goings around the NHL. [Grantland]
  • The mayor of Thunder Bay, ON took one for the team. Having lost a bet on the Bruins advancing, his bald head now sports the Habs logo. [PuckDaddy]
  • Size maddens. To be fair, advanced statistics have some shortcomings, and eight are named here. [SudburyStar]
  • Have a peek at the making of and hidden messages in IIHF team sweaters. (Video, 4:52) [YouTube]
  • There may be a personal reason behind Thomas Vanek's disappearing act. [Montreal Gazette] The European press have christened him "The Phantom." (Auf Deutsch) [SportNet]
  • Swiss miss? It was two Team Switzerland players on an empty net- IIHF follies. (Video, 1:06) [YouTube]
  • The entertaining Las Vegas Wranglers are homeless, and we are the poorer for it. [Fox5Vegas]
  • Here's one way to get Pierre McGuire off the air... [@FSBigBob]
