The Boston Bruins Drop One To The Surging Islanders As Three Games In Four Nights Catch Up To Them. On To The Carolina Hurricanes On Saturday.

Alex Trautwig

<p><b> Give the plucky Islanders credit, and for heaven's sake give the Bruins a rest. Take a nap, boys, we'll see you at 7pm on Saturday at the Carolina Hurricanes. </b></p>

<li> The tired, injured, Bruins ran out of gas in their third game in four nights. The Islanders capitalized. [<a href="http://bostonglobe.com/sports/2013/04/11/bruins-lose-islanders/hWlRw3qXjLM1KOQv1kVefN/story.html">BostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> No complaints on the first period effort, but if a cup run is in their future, they will have to fight through fatigue like this. [<a href="http://nesn.com/2013/04/bruins-blame-empty-gas-tank-for-listless-performance-in-loss-to-surging-islanders/">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Tired would be the best reason for the loss. The other possible reason is more disturbing.

<li> Falling flat- the good, the bad, the ugly, the bullet point version. [<a href="http://bigbadblog.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/2013/04/11/bruins-fall-flat-vs-islanders/">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> I need a recap with 'Tude. So do you. "There was nothing really redeeming from last night that's not named Tuukka Rask." [<a href="http://www.daysofyorr.com/2013-articles/april/where-oh-where-have-the-bruins-gone-bruins-lose.html">DaysofY'Orr</a>]</li>

<li> And laugh at this bon mot while you're at it. [<a href="https://twitter.com/WeberKing/status/322728517370511360">@WeberKing</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins are STILL desperately seeking their game, with playoffs around the corner. [<a href="http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/dj-bean/2013/04/12/bruins-seem-far-finding-groove-playoffs-near">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Claude Julien has a mature, reasoned perspective on the dirty hits/retaliation debate. Buzzkill! [<a href="http://causewaycrowd.com/2013/04/11/dirty-hits-have-consequences/">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> The scrappy Dread Pirate Soderberg is fighting for us! Carl Soderberg is weighing in, refusing to play for Sweden. [<a href="http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/04/12/report-soderberg-refuses-to-play-for-sweden-after-league-blocks-move-to-nhl-bruins/">WBZ,CBSLocal</a>]</li>

<li> And just for the record, a quick rundown of the deathwatch numbers for teams on the playoff cusp. [<a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-death-watch-tragic-numbers-non-playoff-teams-135152152--nhl.html">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> Insurance is at the heart of the disagreement over NHL player participation in the Sochi Olympics. [<a href="http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/insurance-the-main-sticking-point-for-nhlers-participation-in-sochi/article11098449/">GlobeAndMail</a>]</li>
