  • Take five... observations of the win. The Reilly Smith embellishment call was a flat out turd. [WEEI]

  • The Bruins are digging themselves out of their early hole, and Cory Schneider is trying to prove he can go an entire season. Several Bruins donated tickets for Military Appreciation Night. [PatriotLedger]
  • In honor of veterans, Mark Divver linked to a piece he wrote in 2011 about West Point graduate and former PBruin Zach McKelvie. [ProvidenceJournal]
  • And some hopeful news... it appears Carl Soderberg 's camp is making overtures to the Bruins. [@DominicTiano]
