The Bruins dance with the Devils tonight at 7:00PM, TD Garden.

  • Tonight's matchup may look like the walking wounded on ice, but NO WHINING ALLOWED from either side. One key to the game will be the Devils ' woeful penalty kill. [In LouWeTrust]
  • David Krejci 's nagging injury has meant extra responsibility for Milan Lucic, who has had a slow start himself. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • And it looks like we'll be Krejciless tonight. [TheScore]
  • There is just no substitute: Seth Griffith 's remarkable performance on the top line can be tied directly to Krejci's presence. [BleacherReport]
  • David Warsofsky is out (groin injury) but with any luck Torey Krug may return to the lineup tonight. [Fansided]
  • Should Krug not be ready to go, Matt Bartkowski will get another chance. Will he be able to seize it as Matt Fraser did? [WEEI]
  • It isn't all bad news, though, there are four good reasons to be thankful that we still have Dougie Hamilton. [USAToday]
  • Joe Morrow and Adam McQuaid are holding down the second defensive pairing with a deal of success. [SouthCoastToday]
  • Draft, schmaft. Matt Fraser is downright anxious to do well and prove himself. Also, the Bruins made a key concession to land Torey Krug, who was suddenly in high demand upon graduation. [WEEI]
  • Call-ups to Boston left the depleted Providence Bruins in a bad way, but there were still some highlights. [ProvidenceJournal]
  • Freddie Hamilton and the WorcesterSharks were able to take the Atlantic Division's top spot by dropping the PBruins. [WorcesterTelegram&Gazette]
  • Seen at the scene... three young Bruins were the New England Revolution 's honorary captains last evening for their playoff game. Good choice, as the Revolution advanced to the next round. [BostInno]
  • On Saturday, at Comics Come Home XX, a whole bunch of Bruins were on stage with Dennis Leary (Video, 5:57 and lyrics **NSFW**)...   [WeekendAtBergys] ...in support of the Cam Neely Foundation. [BayStateBanner]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • These NHL fans have taking decorating to the next level. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Your lying eyes... If you believe in soft goals, you are dumb and here's why. [PuckDaddy]
  • Once upon a time a Bruins game was cancelled due to low visibility. [GreatestHockeyLegends.com]
  • No, just NO. Do not even entertain the notion of renaming the NHL trophies. [GreatestHockeyLegends]
  • It's curtains at the end of the season for the Green Men, who will retire to resume being normal fans. [FanSided]
  • Congratulations to the Canadian women, who beat USA for the Four Nations Cup. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Tyler Ennis faces discipline for contact with an official... or is playing for the Sabres punishment enough? [PuckDaddy]
