Practice, practice, practice. Next up, hosting the Jets on Friday evening.

  • The Bruins get a few days to regroup and recoup before hitting the West Coast. [ESPN]
  • Try to keep up, now... Seth Griffith returned to Boston, David Pastrnak remains. Jordan Caron and Alexander Khokhlachev are back in Providence. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • After having missed out on training camp, we finally got a look at Pastrnak, who acquitted himself well in brief ice time. [BostonHerald]
  • The Bruins have moved on from mere defensive woes to also cobbling up some sort of working offensive lines. [WEEI]
  • At least all the injuries offered a chance to see a Milan Lucic/Carl Soderberg/ Loui Eriksson line, and they were good. []
  • The Bruins were competitive against two top teams while playing shorthanded, and it was nice to see Lucic return to form. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Lucic remembers the late Pat Quinn from his Vancouver Giants days. [MetroWestDailyNews]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Did you know that Jack Edwards is a lifelong skier, and has covered alpine skiing for several major networks? [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Scientists believe they've found a measurable protein marker that predicts the severity of concussions. Note: THere's a familiar name in the first journal reference at the bottom... [ScienceDaily]
  • A couple of old war horses went for a spin around Detroit and had a chat for old times' sake. [TheScore]
  • The late Pat Quinn will be memorialized by both the Maple Leafs and Canucks with patches and helmet stickers respectively, the Canucks also presented a touching tribute video. [TheHockeyNews]
  • C'mon, Ref! You don't suppose players deliberately alter the ice surface or anything, do you? [TSN]
  • We're in the money... Forbes details the value of all of the NHL franchises. The Bruins are up 25% from last year. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Number one in our hearts, but number two in Travis Yost's first quarter fancystats estimation, Patrice Bergeron is tops in either case, with or without Zdeno Chara. [TSN]
  • And as we mark the end of the first quater, here are some awards! [Grantland]
  • No, REALLY! One fan spends 60% of his workday following sports. [TheOnion]
  • Thirty Thoughts- The Oilers are imploding, and Brendan Gallagher knows that Montreal was the target of the crackdown on embellishment. [Sportsnet]
  • Sometimes, the emergency backup goalie (or his backstory) steals the show, but not the game. The Blackhawks won a 1938 Stanley Cup Final game with one. [SportsIllustrated]
  • Betrayal. Katie Baker tackles the sad subject of Jack Johnson 's bankruptcy filing. [Grantland]
  • Here's what each NHL team has to be thankful for. [Fansided]
