<p><b> The New Jersey Devils fail to slip one past SPARKLY BAMF Tuukka Rask, and new Boston Bruin Jaromir Jagr makes his first goal as a Bruin count. The Bruins now shift gears and head out to face Michael Ryder and the division leading Montreal Canadiens on Saturday:</b></>

<li> It was one dirty GWG accompanied an anvil chorus of post strikes from the Devils, as Claude Julien praised Jagr for his 'net drive,' and hoped the younger Bruins would take a lesson from it.

<li> Jagr was critical of his own performance, and praised his teammates. [<a href="http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/dj-bean/2013/04/05/jaromir-jagr-clearly-expects-lot-his-time-bruins">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Tyler Seguin, moved to center, appreciated Patrice Bergeron's contributions after having to try to fill his skates, in the faceoff circle and on defense. The Merlot line held off the final six-man attack at the buzzer.

<li> Coming off two games of rest thanks to Anton Khudobin, Tuukka Rask blanked the Devils in a convincing fashion for his 14th shutout. [<a href="http://nesn.com/2013/04/tuukka-rask-returns-to-bruins-lineup-fresh-steals-show-with-shutout-win/">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Rask used his time off to work with coach Bob Essensa, and plans a serene mental approach to Montreal this weekend. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/04/buckley_tuukka_rask_is_bruins_best_goalie_for_cup_run">Boston Herald</a>]</li>

<li> Peter Chiarelli's "impressive recovery" was snatching up Plan B, Jaromir Jagr, [<a href="http://www.boston.com/sports/touching_all_the_bases/2013/04/jagr_is_a_fascinating_plan_b_f.html">BostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> "Eccentric" Kaspars Daugavins, who captured our imaginations with his shootout moves, is glad to no longer have to play against the Bruins. #GhostDog.

<li> Chris Kelly will travel to Montreal, is "close" to a return. An improved Matt Bartkowski revealed that Calgary had sought him in the failed Iginla trade, which he took as a compliment. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/04/chris_kelly_close_to_a_return">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> And a quick reminder what's at stake in Montreal tomorrow evening. [<a href="http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/extras/bruins_blog/2013/04/greetings_from_14.html">BostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Matthew Lindblad (Dartmouth College) has been signed by the Bruins. [<a href="https://twitter.com/NaokoFunayama/status/320184596157325312">@NaokoFunayama</a>]</li>

<li> Here's a bit more about Lindblad. [<a href="http://ushl.com/news.php?news_id=1691">USHL.com</a>]</li>
