<p><b> It was nearly a trick on the Bruins last night as the Sabres jumped out to an early lead. Next up- Saturday evening at TD Garden the Bruins host the Senators, 7:00 PM.</b></p>

<li> Brad Marchand 's fingerprints were on each goal, and his contribution was much needed. The young Providence Bruins call-ups held their own on the blue line, logging big minutes. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Niklas Svedberg played solidly in making only 13 saves last evening. Loui Eriksson and Dennis Seidenberg each reached a milestone. Dougie Hamilton finished with a +24 Corsi. [<a href="">NESN</a>]

<li> The Bruins were down one goal going into the third period, and then amped up the urgency. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Take five... observations from last evening's game. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins "flirted with defeat for nearly 60 minutes." Chris Stewart tangled with Milan Lucic (remember when Jarome Iginla dropped the gloves with Nathan Horton and then ended up as a Bruin?) Despite some hiccups by Joseph Morrow and David Warsofsky , the rookie defensemen were plenty good enough. [<a href="">HockeyBuzz</a>]</li>

<li> Claude Julien acknowledged that Matt Bartkowski 's challenge right now is confidence. Kevan Miller should begin skating again on Monday. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Even so, Cam Neely has been candid about expecting better from the Bruins than he's seen so far. [<a href="">Boston.CBSLocal</a>]</li>
