<p><b> I hope you didn't have any plans for Saturday night. The Bruins once again look to close out the series with the Rangers at TD Garden at 5:30pm. </b></p/>

<li> One take is that it was all blown calls and fluke goals. [<a href="http://causewaycrowd.com/2013/05/24/blown-calls-fluke-goals-give-the-rangers-their-first-win-of-the-series/">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Okay, okay wag your finger at Tuukka Rask, Zdeno Chara, and the infamous Too Many Men penalty for brain fart goals. Still, there was a great deal of good in last night's OT loss.

<li> A clearly emotional Dougie Hamilton manned up as the team and Coach Julien acknowledged that mistakes cost the game. [<a href="http://nesn.com/2013/05/gift-goals-sloppy-mistakes-cost-bruins-chance-to-close-out-rangers-in-game-4-video/">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Barry Pedersen spoke about the tenor of the game, and the game-changers. [<a href="http://bigbadblog.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/2013/05/24/barry-pederson-on-dc-the-bruins-are-going-to-need-a-lot-more-intensity-from-their-leaders/">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Relive the highs and lows of the game, and is Brad Richards done in New York? [<a href="http://www.sportingnews.com/nhl/story/2013-05-23/nhl-playoffs-2013-rangers-bruins-game-4-tuukka-rask-brad-richards-rick-nas">SportingNews</a>]</li>

<li> Take comfort in these observations. The Bruins are comeback kids. Tyler Seguin's physical play and determination finally resulted in a goal. Nathan Horton's and Torey Krug's goals came on the (gasp) power play. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/bruins/post/_/id/12414/three-takeaways-from-game-4">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Or on the snarkier side..."It looks pretty bad on TV, I bet." Does YOUR family have a "Too Many Men" emergency plan? [<a href="http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/05/24/rask-chara-and-co-didnt-deserve-game-4-win-and-other-leftover-thoughts/">WBZ,CBSLocal</a>]</li>

<li> I admire that Tuukka Rask is not one to deflect the blame. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/05/tuukka_rask_now_the_fall_guy">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> It needed to be said. "Buckneresque." Sigh. Big, bad Bruins were simply bad for key moments. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/05/buckley_bruins_bad_in_big_way">BostonHerald</a>]</li>
