<li> Good on Jordan Caron, who didn't let the goal waved off in the Tampa game rattle him, going on to play a solid game against Detroit. More Third Line drama ahead! [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Jimmy Howard refused to blame fatigue in the loss. Isn't it great to see the Bruins firing on almost all cylinders this early in the season? BWO!!! [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Zdeno Chara, more than a pylon, surprised some with his sick mitts, and Tuukka Rask was impressed by the way the Bruins played as a team. Brad Marchand scored with a deadly wrister, he and Pavel Datsyuk were shaken up in a collision initiated by Justin Abdelkader. [<a href="">WorcesterTelegram&Gazette</a>]</li>

<li>The team looks cohesive even with new faces, whose energy has contributed to a fast start this season. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Here are the three stars of the week. [<a href="">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Patrice Bergeron 's diary entry covers the Bruins season opener and more. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Carl Soderberg is not at practice today, and the Bruins are scrimmaging with players using their opposite hands. [<a href="">@ESPNJoeyMac</a>][<a href="">@ESPNJoeyMac</a>]

<li> Torey Krug realized that if the Boston had lost to Toronto last season, he would likely not be where he is now. [<a href="">DetroitNews</a>]</li>

<li> Jarome Iginla is very comfortable with fighting, and would like to see it remain in the game. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li>The Bruins have overcome a history of player-management animosity. Really. [<a href="">SouthCoastToday</a>]</li>


<p><b>Elsewhere around the rink: </b></p>


<li> Just for grins, a look at whether or not fighting does deter other "nasty business" in hockey. [<a href="">PensionPlanPuppets</a>]</li>

<li> Former Bruin Anton Khudobin is making waves as an Hurricane, in the right way. Dr. Khu was sneaky good last night. [<a href=""></a>]</li>

<li> Jaromir Jagr can still contribute, as shown by his postseason run with the Bruins. Besides, having him benefits Martin Brodeur... [<a href="">NewYOrkTimes</a>]</li>

<Mli> Teemu Selanne said goodbye to Winnipeg last night, and was warmly saluted one final time. [<a href="">TheHockeyNews</a>] Watch the video (1:16) [<a href="">NHL</a>]</li>

<li> Spinning the wheel... a Mason Raymond Spin-O-Rama goal Saturday night received extra scrutiny. [<a href="">TheGlobeAndMail</a>]</li>

<li> Alexandre Burrows was injured blocking a shot. Let the handwringing commence. [<a href="">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> Check out Boston's rink/field/court-side "roving sports sweethearts" and "Enjoy the sideline stylings of new Bruins ice queen Jamie Erdahl" who "brings the blonde factor." "File under: Girls on the Side." [<a href="">Boston Herald</a>]</li>
