  • In case you missed it, here's a great synopsis of the game. [GermanBsFan]
  • Enjoy key GIF highlights of last night's win (sticktap to Steph Vail.) []
  • Cue Rene Rancourt then cue Dirty Water, a sold out win at home in the season opener reminds us that all is well with the world. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Peter Chiarelli must be especially happy for Chris Kelly this morning. []
  • A tenacious netfront tussle yielded the game winning goal, which pleased Claude Julien. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Julien's own backstory is a tale of tenacity, patience, and embracing opportunity. He well understands being surpassed by younger prospects, being cut, and having promises retracted. [ESPN]
  • Frankly, Claude Giroux was dominated by Patrice Bergeron. [WEEI]
  • And good old Zdeno Chara? Yeah, he's not getting any younger, but he is still very, very good. [WEEI]
  • Belle of the ball: Bobby Robins, who made his memorable NHL debut last night. What a long, strange trip it has been for him! [MassLive]
  • Former Merlot stalwart Daniel Paille now finds himself mentoring newcomers Robins along with Craig Cunningham, who likewise made his NHL debut. [PatriotLedger]
  • Cunningham has a backstory that echoes David Pastrnak 's. [NESN]
  • Meanwhile, the ever smiling Pastrnak bides his time, and dreams on. [NewEnglandHockeyJournal]
  • On to Detroit, where the Bruins will face the Red Wings this evening at 7:30 PM. [OctopusThrower] Sadly, Pavel Datsyuk will not be playing. [NHL]
  • Elsewhere around the rink:

    • Les't just thumb our noses at dumb old Mike Milbury and his anti-fighting stance, shall we? [TheHockeyNews]
    • Get a load of these infographics about the composition of the NHL by player nationality, including salary details. Oh, and Jaromir Jagr of the Czech Republic wields the NHL's Boston Post Cane. [TheHockeyNews]
    • Rogers has arranged for 6 new cameras to bring fans into the game. [TheProvince]
    • Gary Bettman is okay with the possibility of Flyer Chris Pronger joining the Department of Player Safety... [The Sporting News] ...but some might argue it is a clear conflict of interest... [TheSportingNews] ...while others assert that he is "an inspired choice." [PuckDaddy]
