Fresh Links: Jeckyll and Hyde Edition

Seth Griffith had two goals and an assist, so the Bruins got that goin' for them, which is nice.

Hey Bruins, the Wild just Rangered ya!

  • This Bruins team seems to hearken back to the bad old Jeckyll and Hyde days of 2013. [WEEI]
  • Hats off to the Wild, they earned the win. For the Bruins, the David Krejci line carried the offense with little support. As for the defense... [TheBostonGlobe]
  • This disjointed effort was painful after the pitch-perfect team effort in the win over the Maple Leafs. [BostonHerald]
  • Disappointment clouded the Bruins dressing room post game. The Wild, who had similarly collapsed in front of the New York Rangers just the night before, showed up to play hard. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • The problem was supposed to be in replacing Jarome Iginla 's scoring. Who would have believed we'd now worry about the Bruins' vaunted defense? [ESPN]
  • At least this GIF recap includes that second Seth Griffith goal where he goes all Bobby Orr. [Boston.com]
  • It should have been a celebration of a two goal, three-point night for a rookie in only his seventh NHL game. [TheHockeyWriters]
  • Milan Lucic appears to be rounding back into form, unlike Matt Bartkowski. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • Torey Krug is out with a broken finger... [Bruins.NHL]
  • ...cue the call up of Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky from Providence. [@MarkDivver]
  • Rookie defenseman Zach Trotman is finding it a challenge to sit for stretches without a shift. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • Speaking of consistency, Chris Kelly has been solid so far this season. [NESN]
  • The play of Dougie Hamilton has been another bright spot.[ProvidenceJournal]
  • Kelly has had a bout with a back injury, and spoke about his admiration for Nathan Horton, and simply hoping for a normal life (let alone an NHL career) in light of chronic pain. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • Well wishes to referee Dave Lewis, who had to leave the game after reportedly suffering a broken jaw. [ScoutingTheRefs]

"Elsa-where" around the rink:

  • "Lucic and Chong?" Laugh at the most common NHL Fantasy Hockey Team names (scroll down, they follow the basketball ones.) [Slate]
  • Well wishes to Gordie Howe, who is gravely ill after suffering a serious stroke. [DetroitFreePress]
  • Tom Gagliardi, owner of the Dallas Stars and Kamloops Blazers, will be sentenced for illegal renovations that damaged fish habitat on his Kamloops property. [Sportsnet]
  • These inexplicably unpunished NHL hits bring new meaning to the words "Scott Free." (Trigger warning, the first is despicable Matt Cooke 's on Marc Savard .) [Grantland]
  • Madison Square Garden Co. is splitting the Knicks and Rangers, just wait for the other shoe to drop (positioning for sale, cough, cough). [Bloomberg]
  • So, you think you still want fighting in hockey? Read this, and think again. [OnTheForecheck]
