The Bruins Pounced On The Panthers For Two Points. On To A Saturday Matinee Against The Capitals, Who Have A Lean And Hungry Look. BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH!

Joel Auerbach

Yet again, an early two goal lead seemed to lead to a lull in the second period. The fault, dear Bruins, is not in your stars, but in yourselves:

  • The Bruins are not dominating, merely "slogging along," despite Merlot Line hustle yielding a Shawn Thornton goal. [BostonHerald]
  • Claude Julien praised the fourth line, and they, in turn, credited each other. [Boston Globe]
  • Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton have yet to hit their stride so far. [ESPN]
  • The Bruins were outshot 12-7 in the second, and it was noted at TD Garden that as the trade deadline is approaching "the upper level was loaded with scouts." [YahooSports]
  • Peter Chiarelli characterizes the trade market as "tight," and seems ulikely to pull the trigger on any major deal. [BostonHerald]
  • Here's the short list on what went right, and what went wrong. [WEEI]
  • Claude Julien is now #2 in all-time wins for the Bruins, but in no way considers himself in Schmidt's league. [CausewayCrowd]
  • Patrice Bergeron, who has played for 3 Bruins coaches, and Tuukka Rask weighed in on their modest coach's milestone. [ESPN]
  • The Carl Soderberg suspension could speed his arrival in Boston. [WBZ,CBSLocal]
  • Hey, kids! Cowboys vs. Indians on ice, just for fun. [PuckDaddy]
