<li> Nick Johnson has been (re-re-) called up by the Bruins. [<a href="">Bruins.NHL</a>]</li>

<li> Auld acquaintence Marco Sturm, who sadly has some experience in these matters, has reached out to speak with Dennis Seidenberg about his injury. A very disappointed Seidenberg is focusing on a complete, not fast, recovery. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> On the bright side, Tuukka Rask pointed out that the team will have time to adjust to any changes before the playoffs. Seidenberg is also grateful for the fact that an ACL tear is no longer an automatic career ender. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> As for possible defensive acquisitions, Dan Girardi 's name has come up. Other dark horse candidates include Tom Gilbert, Chris Phillips, Henrik Tallinder and Mark Stuart. Do read the comments section for a good chuckle. [<a href="">Hockeybuzz</a>]</li>

<li> Dougie Hamilton is practicing, Loui Eriksson and Carl Söderberg are skating, Zdeno Chara is a gametime decision, Chris Kelly is progressing. Welcome back, Kevan Miller! [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Chris Kelly is sporting a walking boot, and was on hand for the Bruins open skate at Frozen Fenway. He had words of praise for Ryan Spooner. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>
