<p><b> The Bruins scored 6 goals for the third time in a row, and sent the Panthers packing. Are you ready for the Canadiens tomorrow? </b></p>

<li> Your game recap, served neat. [<a href="http://www.hockeyjournal.com/blog/blackGold/Bruins_torch_Thomas-_pot_six_goals_to_beat_Panthers">NewEnglandHockeyJournal</a>]</li>

<li> Get an eyeful of these singular publicity shots of our favorite (and some perhaps forgotten) Bruins. The snarky captions are worth the read, too. [<a href="http://hockeyjournal.com/news/bruins/Original_Six-_Eye-opening_Bruins_publicity_shots">NewEnglandHockeyJournal</a>]</li>

<li> Chris Kelly eased back into the game, and Ryan Spooner returned to Providence for more seasoning, along with Zach Trotman. Unlike Milan Lucic, who had two goals, Tuukka Rask did not want to pump Shawn Thornton's tires.

<li> The Wrath of Timmy rained down on Carl Söderberg, although Thomas managed a laugh after Thornton's goal, and even quipped postgame about missing the State of the Union address.

<li> Claude Julien has been very pleased with Söderberg's adjustment to both the NHL and the winger position. [<a href="http://www.patriotledger.com/article/20140129/SPORTS/140125979/2000/NEWS/?tag=1">PatriotLedger</a>]</li>

<li> With scouts in the stands, Thomas' hopes to play next year hinge on his performance, at least he still has his tenacity. [<a href="http://www.southcoasttoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140129/SPORTS/401290316/-1/SPORTS">SouthCoastToday</a>]</li>

<li> Is it too early to speculate as to whether or not Thomas receives a Shanaban for his shenanigans? [<a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/does-tim-thomas-deserve-suspension-stick-boston-bruin-150534081--nhl.html">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>
