The fault, dear Bruins, is not in the Stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings...

<p><b>Time for a bit of soul searching for the Bruins, as the Stars move on with two points:  </b></p>


<li> Here's the game in a nutshell. The key play was a soul-sucking Bruins penalty kill. Tuukka Rask was the hard-luck player of the game. The Merlot line was meh.  Milan Lucic was a bright spot. [<a href="">NewEnglandHockeyJournal</a>]</li>

<li> Suck it up buttercup, Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley sealed the deal in the shootout. Claude Julien hopes the Bruins are tired of losing already. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Seguin soundly answered Lindy Ruff's call to improve at the faceoff circle. [<a href=""></a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins came out harder, then slacked off. They seemed "out of synch." [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> At least Johnny Boychuk appears to be feeling better- watch this "two-fer." [<a href="">TheSportingNews</a>]</li>

<li> The Garden erupted in boos for both Seguin (who had apparently been the beneficiary of blind eyes during his tenure here) and, inexplicably, Peverley. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> It is looking unlikely that Tim Thomas will be in net for the Panthers when they arrive to face the Bruins on Thursday evening at TD Garden. After last night, this is probably a good thing. [<a href="">ProvidenceJournal</a>]</li>

<li> Apparently we've been mispronouncing Brad Marchand's name. It should be March&! [<a href="">@RealJackEdwards</a>]</li>

<li> On to happier news, let's catch up with Brian Ferlin at Cornell, on this "hot list." [<a href="">TheHockeyNews</a>]</li>


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


<li> Hooray for good guy Manny Malhotra, who scored the game winning goal for the Carolina Hurricanes over the Philadelphia Flyers last night. [<a href="">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> The Buffalo Sabres edged the San Jose Sharks in a shootout... [<a href="">MSN.FoxSports</a>]</li>

<li> ... but wait, there's more... [<a href="">KuklasKorner</a>]</li>

<li> C'mon, Ref! What about that elbow of Joffrey Lupul's that missed Henrik Sedin but then hit Nazem Kadri? [<a href="">TSN</a>]</li>

<li> Have a look at Team Finland's jerseys. [<a href="">@FilipSaxen</a>]</li>

<li> Not so fast- apparently the CBA may prevent the Calgary Flames from mandating that players wear "shotblockers." [<a href="">TSN</a>]</li>

<li> A Devil's Advocate argument as to why Ray Emery deserved to be a "Star of the Game" after his beatdown of Braden Holtby. [<a href="">BackhandShelf</a>]</li>

<li> Remember these likely forgotten (but important) NHL moves? [<a href="">Grantland</a>]</li>

<li> Must Pat Sajak now "Emery" Alex Trebek? [<a href="">SBNation</a>]</li>
