Thank you, it is what I've always wanted, AND IT FITS!

Oh what fun it is to ride...

<p><b> No Bruins hockey until Friday- go on home and eat figgy pudding with your families. </b></p>


<li> Here's a recap of the action with video clips, and a few "quick hits." [<a href="">TheSpokedBLog</a>]</li>

<li> The Predators were unable to come back this time after falling behind 3-0 in the first period. There were Smith goals on both sides! [<a href=""></a>]</li>

<li> What went right (and wrong) last night. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins youngsters got a chance to shine last night. Tuukka Rask had 32 saves. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Reilly Smith has been the gift that keeps giving. His set play with Carl Soderberg on the power play has been deadly. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Adam McQuaid was back and "start(ed) off with a bang." Claude Julien now has won 400 games. The Bruins are off until morning skate on Friday. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Matt Fraser scored his first goal as a Bruin, albeit his second NHL goal (both against the Predators.) (Video, 0:48) [<a href="">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Ryan Spooner is speedy, skilled, and willing to take contact. His faceoff percentage has improved. It is going to be hard to see him sent back to Providence. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> It wouldn't be Christmas without gifts for everyone... Here's one hypothetical Bruins gift list. For Shawn Thornton? "A do-over."  [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Seen at the scene... a posse of Bruins in festive hats visited Boston Children's Hospital. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> A number of Bruins prospects (and other Boston area lads) will be representing their countries at the WJC, including Matthew Grzelcyk, Linus Arnesson, and Peter Cehlárik. [<a href="">GermanBsFan</a>]</li>

<li> "Behind the B" Episode #6 is up for your viewing pleasure. Merry Christmas! [<a href="">Bruins.NHL</a>]</li>
