Matt Fraser for the win in OT! - Francois Laplante/FreestylePhoto

I'll have what HE'S having.

Matt Fraser was called up from the Providence Bruins and the Calder Cup playoffs to the Boston Bruins and the Stanley Cup playoffs. Good move.

  • Enjoy the HNIC opening video from last night, "Rococo" by Arcade Fire. It is a lot easier to watch Game 3 clips today, isn't it? (Video, 2:36) [YouTube]
  • Matt Fraser is the feel-good story you'd hoped for, an unlikely hero in an overtime game. Claude Julien credits Peter Chiarelli for making the call. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Carl Söderberg was a beast, and the third line's hard work was rewarded. [BostonHerald]
  • Torey Krug can relate to Fraser's remarkable success. Yet another young player called up from the PBruins, Fraser has admittedly worked to change his game from offense-only to better fit the Bruins mold after leaving the Dallas Stars. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • Fraser always wanted to be Joe Sakic as a kid. (Close your eyes and listen... doesn't Fraser's voice sound just like Tim Thomas'?) (With video, 3:57) []
  • Thanks may be due to a certain someone, the Dallas Stars players acquired in the Rich Peverley trade have made a difference for the Bruins in the playoffs. []
  • The Bruins' third line worked hard all night, Söderberg was relentless at net front as Fraser knocked the puck in. Scouting mattered, as they exploited the Habs' third D pairing. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • The third line owned the Canadiens' third defensive pair, as shown here. Ouch! [@ArponBasu]
  • Tuukka Rask rebounded with a shutout, and lauded his teammates for their efforts to tighten up defensively in front of him. [NHL]
  • Zdeno Chara quietly dominated defensively last night, and the numbers demonstrate that. [NESN]
  • Speaking of Chara's numbers, here's a quick infographic on his income, and his major endorsement contract. [Forbes]
  • As great as it was to celebrate Fraser's goal, we're still looking for the contributions of some other key players. [WEEI]
  • Take five... observations after last night's win. [SouthCoastToday]
  • The Canadiens rue the missed opportunity to stick it to the Bruins, it has been over 60 years since a 0-0 tie in playoffs regulation has sent the Canadiens into overtime. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Meanwhile, the Providence Bruins open their Calder Cup series against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (and former Bruin Chuck Kobasew) tonight. [ProvidenceJournal]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Think of the children! A Montréal elementary school should have been more afraid of the outcome of Game 4, methinks. [PuckDaddy]
  • More bad news for the reeling Rangers, as Martin St. Louis' mother has passed away, leaving his status uncertain. [TheScore]
  • No worries, Barry Trotz is fielding calls from several potential new employers. [TheScore]
  • Randy Carlyle's contract extension likely means personnel changes for the Maple Leafs. [TheGlobeAndMail]
