The Bruins and Maple Leafs square off in the Wednesday Night Rivalry, 8:00 PM in Toronto.

  • These teams have been around long enough to have some history. And some of it is heated. [TheStar]
  • For Tuukka Rask, NOT being in the NHL highlight reel making saves is good news, indeed, and signals the Bruins' return to defense first. [SouthCoastToday]
  • Being the backup is an odd but necessary role, and Niklas Svedberg is willing to embrace it as he waits for his chance. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • One correlation to the Bruins last five wins is that Joe Morrow has been playing. Oddly, he may be a better NHL player than AHL player. [WEEI]
  • David Krejci did not travel with the team. [BostonHerald]
  • Jonathan Bernier will answer the call in net for Toronto tonight. [@JonasTSN1050]
  • The Bruins stormed ahead nine spots this power ranking, and not only because of lighter opponents in the schedule. [SportsIllustrated]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Daniel Alfredsson 's candidacy for the Hockey Hall of Fame is an interesting one. Take a look at opposing arguments for his case. [Grantland]
  • Brendan Smith explained what fans don't realize about hockey players, Zdeno Chara, and which game his brother Reilly Smith really excells at. [MLive]
  • Bill McCreary learned a lot in his career as an NHL referee, like when NOT to take action. [WinnipegFreePress]
  • The honeymoon may be over for the marriage of Don Cherry and Sportsnet. [TheGlobeAndMail]
  • Handwringing sounds painful in the wake of Connor McDavid's injury, but don't let that stop anyone. Surely the OHL can be as hard on fighting as they are against social media miscreants? [Sportsnet]
  • Psssst! The Coyotes may be open to offers for local boy defenseman Keith Yandle... [TheFourthPeriod]
  • Las Vegas is now ready for an NHL team,  and Roberto Luongo Tweeted out the obvious benefit of this location. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Good news for Olli Maatta, who was able to skate on Tuesday. [Post-Gazette]
  • This thoughtful father's letter to his son marking the end of his son's OHL career is simply perfect. [My-Hockey-Diary]
  • MOvember Remembers... Dave Schultz of the Flyers. (Bonus: his classic 70's flow!) [BarDown]
  • Tero Heikkinen is a Finnish man on a mission to finally see his beloved Islanders play on Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum ice. [LighthouseHockey]
  • Guy Boucher will coach Canada in the Spengler Cup Tournament. [LastWordOnSports]
  • What adult beverage is the most suitable to represent YOUR NHL team? [FiveMole]
