  • The goal was especially nice after Kelly's injury and goal drought last year. [BostonHerald]
  • Jarome Iginla was greeted warmly, and made it a point to show he's in Boston to play Bruins hockey. Claude Julien was very happy with Jordan Caron 's game. [ESPN]
  • Carl Soderberg's injury allowed Jordan Caron one more chance to showcase himself to advantage. He had several good chances, but don't ask him about his waved-off goal. [WEEI]
  • Vier mehr jahre! Dennis Seidenberg remains a Bruin for four more years, $16 million. Peter Chiarelli considers him "the whole package." [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Our own Tom Servo talks Bruins on a Leafs site. OOoo. [The Leafs Nation]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • New Senator Bobby Ryan 's backstory is harrowing and sobering. [Sportsnet]
  • It isn't easy dealing with the hype of being a high draft pick. [Grantland]
  • Catching up with Ned Braden of the Chiefs. [TheClassical]
  • How unfair is the Bettman's new conference alignment? [CausewayCrowd]
