Initially Sporting Shuffled Lines, The Bruins Slog Out From Behind For A Shootout Win At Home. As Always, Thank You, Kessel.

<p><b> Shootouts. As much at he hates them, Tuukka Rask prefers to win them. And he did. </b></p>


<li> The Boston Bruins are breathing down your necks, Canadiens! We'll see you Wednesday. [<a href="">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Welcome back, cranky Milan Lucic, who scored on a line with Rich Peverley and Jordan Caron. The Bruins were in their white road sweaters... for luck? Andrew Ference and Aaron Johnson suffered transient "brain freeze."[<a href="">MassLive</a>]</li>

<li> With injuries in the defensive corps, Andrew Ference has been playing more, and on his off side. [<a href="">MetroWestDailyNews</a>]</li>

<li> Perfect Patrice Bergeron was perfect. And scored twice, on a nice from-behind-the-net feed from Dougie Hamilton, and again in the shootout, where Anton Khudobin tipped Tuukka Rask off on what shot to expect from Nikolai Kulemin. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Dougie Hamilton showed some grit and determination along with good decision making. [<a href="">WBZ,CBSLocal</a>]</li>

<li> The lineup was initially "The Left Wing Shuffle." And Daniel Paille comported himself well in an expanded role that he had earned. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Here's what went right and wrong last night for the Bruins. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Don't let it go to your head, kid. Is Claude Julien purposely measuring his praise for Tuukka Rask? [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Sophomore Bulldog Chris Casto (Minnesota-Duluth) has signed with the Bruins, likely to report directly to Providence. [<a href="">SBNation</a>]</li>

<li> Midseason checkup... how well did these predictions pan out? [<a href="">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> In praise of Dennis Seidenberg, who has had quite a week for the Bruins. [<a href="">RantSports</a>]</li>

<li> Another Calgary Flame name has been tossed into the trade ring, and Calgary scouts were in the house last night. [<a href=">TSN</a>]</li>

<li> Martin St. Louis' and Jaromir Jagr 's names have now come up in a trade rumor as potential Bruins targets. [<a href="">NHLTradeReport</a>]</li>

<li> Did or did not Geoff Ward... adulterate... a fan's beer? [<a href="">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>


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


<li> Jon Cooper is named head coach of the Lightning. [<a href="">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> OMG! Kaspars Daugavins has been put on waivers, remember The Penalty Shot? [<a href="">Senshot</a>]</li>

<li> Remember all the hand-wringing about the lockout costing the NHL fans and market share? Only one NHL team has seen decreased TV ratings. [<a href="">SBNation</a>]</li>
