The Bruins launched their bigger boat and harpooned the San Jose Sharks last evening.

  • Have a gander at this GIF recap of the game highlights. []
  • Take five... quick notes on the game. [SouthCoastToday]
  • Seth Griffith 's tally marked his first NHL goal, linemate Milan Lucic thoughtfully fetched the puck to present to him. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Sticking to the game plan paid off big for the Bruins, and Lucic' s game appears to be coming around. [WEEI]
  • Torey Krug received a battlefield promotion upon Kevan Miller 's injury, and he understands his role and responsibilities. Communication with his veteran partner Dennis Seidenberg is especially important, as Krug plays his off-side. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • "That one felt good." Gregory Campbell tallied the game winning goal, and the David Krejci / Milan Lucic / Seth Griffith line seemed to hit stride. Brad Marchand scored, and then cost, a goal. [MassLive]
  • The Bruins new fourth line stepped up and made a solid contribution. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Tuukka Rask still seems to be less that his usual Vezina-calibre self. [BleacherReport]
  • Even Patrice Bergeron seemed to have an off night, lagging at the faceoff circle and then taking a penalty at the end of the game that left the Bruins on a key penalty kill without him for four minutes. [EnterpriseNews]
  • Psssst- the cap strapped Bruins might be looking at a certain Sabres winger to acquire. [TipOfTheTower] Take this with a grain of salt, but they were also rumored to have been talking a Johnny Boychuk for Nail Yakupov trade, and now a different Oiler is alleged to be in the Bruins' sights. [CausewayCrowd]
  • Step aside, Rask, now Zdeno Chara is on the cover of The Hockey News! [DaysOfYOrr]
  • The best rivalry in the NHL? Well, Steve Dangle says it is the Bruins and Canadiens, and explains. (VIdeo, 3:10) [Sportsnet]
  • Next up, the Bruins host the Islanders on Thursday evening at 7 PM, marking what will be the emotional return of Johnny Boychuk. Happily for him, he has been a very successful veteran addition to a surprisingly strong team. [WEEI]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Former Bruin Joe Thornton takes a look back... long, long ago, to his youthful days in Boston. Nice hair, Joe! [NESN]
  • The outlook is not so rosy for former Bruin Nathan Horton, who is in constant back pain with few options. It may be curtains for his professional career. [TheScore]
  • It appears to be another tough season for the Oilers, but compared to what, exactly? [Grantland]
  • Although he may be best known for surviving one of the scariest injuries on ice, Clint Malarchuk went on to face an even more sinister situation, and another life threatening injury. [CTVNews]
  • That class-action concussion lawsuit now has been filed in federal court. [TheSportingNews]
  • Odds are... Siri can tell you what the over and under is on an NHL game, if you ask. [Imgur,Reddit]
