<p><b> About last night... </b></p>


<li> Nathan Horton's goal was the turning point, but it was a balanced attack that keyed the Bruins' win. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Yo, Merlot! How about Shawn Thornton, Daniel Paille, and Gregory Campbell? And the third line! Rich Peverley went 10-of-11 on faceoffs and scored a goal after a steal and feed by Jaromir Jagr. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Claude Julien had praise for Jaromir Jagr, whose third line with Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley looked a great deal more cohesive. [<a href="">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Chemistry takes time, and the third line appears to be hitting stride. [<a href="">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Tuukka Rask had the game of his career, making 46 saves. [<a href="">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Ladies and gentlemen, your Player of the Game- Milan Lucic. [<a href="">BruinsDaily</a>]</li>

<li> And Lucic sported the team Ranger jacket as a result. [<a href="">Bruins.NHL</a>]</li>

<li> And this NOTfancystat sums up Lucic's odd season. Not that we're complaining. [<a href="">@DJ_Bean</a>]</li>

<li> In a nutshell, what went right and what went wrong for the Bruins in Game 3. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Remember that resilience the Bruins have been so famous for? So did they. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> And remember the Full 60? The Bruins remembered that, too. [<a href="">BruinsDaily</a>]</li>

<li> David Krejci is currently the leading scorer in the playoffs. [<a href="">@BauerHockey</a>]</li>

<li> Toronto was elated to see playoff hockey again, and the atmosphere was electric. They had everything but the win. [<a href="">YahooSports</a>]</li>

<li> The Leafs have a dismal playoff record at home vs. the Bruins. Just sayin'. [<a href="">@Buccigross</a>]</li>

<li> Fan FAIL. A thoughtless Toronto fan's ill-conceived sign was not well received by either side. [<a href="">CBC</a>]</li>
