The Bruins Failed To Beat The Penguins, Who Now Lead The Eastern Conference. Next for the Bruins? The Winnipeg Jets.

Vincent Pugliese

The Bruins dropped a St. Patrick's Day game to the Penguins. At least there was a focus piece on Brad Marchand between periods.

  • David Krejci was walking after taking a Johnny Boychuk Rocket to the knee, and is traveling with the team. Healing wishes to Kris Letang, who was also injured. Phoenix Coyotes scouts were on hand. [BostonHerald]
  • The Bruins have options if Krejci is not able to play. Having missed this chance to take first place in the division, they remain a point behind Montreal and are now three points behind Pittsburgh. It was a "gritty" tilt, and a loss on missed chances. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • Claude Julien likened it to a "typical playoff game." It was an improvement over their last meeting. Tyler Seguin scored for the Bruins. [ESPN]
  • Tuukka Rask lost his footing and was unable to stop the rebound that set up the game winning goal, and Tyler Seguin was robbed on a stealthy wraparound attempt. [MassLive]

But enough about business:

  • Former Bruin Mike Knuble, now with the Flyers, checks in and talks about how he spent the lockout and approaching retirement. [BostonHerald]
  • Andrew Ference says thanks for the birthday greetings, and adds a picture posted at The Publick House regarding St. Patrick's Day shenanigans. [@Ferknuckle]

  • Ryan Miller states the obvious... Patrick Kaleta needs to "grow up." [Slam.Canoe.ca]
  • Be still, my Catamount heart... could Martin St. Louis be willing and available? [PuckDaddy]
  • And here's a huge potpourri of fun from around the NHL: Grapes' dead goldfish? Kaspars Daugavins channels a Bourque? Raging Torts? [Grantland]
