The Bruins cobbled together a team effort and clipped the Red Wings.

  • If you missed it, here's a brief live blog on the game. There was another missed puck-in-the-netting call. It must be the new waved-off goal? [HockeyBuzz]
  • The difference from Saturday's loss to last night's win? "From mites to men." [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Take five... observations from the game. [WEEI]
  • No Milan Lucic? No Patrice Bergeron? Operator, get me Providence! ALL HANDS ON DECK! [TheBostonGlobe]
  • There was a team meeting before the game, admittedly like the ones before previous losses. This time, the message was taken to heart. [WEEI]
  • So, was the win ultimately a happy blip before a return to mediocrity, or a watershed game? [WEEI]
  • Good luck and farewell to Matt Fraser, who will have a chance with the Oilers. Jordan Caron returned from Providence's top line. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • For the Bruins to let Fraser go for nothing in return has left some scratching their heads. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • The future remains uncertain, and even a big trade dealine acquisition will be too late if the Bruins can't position themselves to make the playoffs. []
  • Caron has resilliently refocused his game after not managing to stick in Boston. Seth Griffith was glad to break his scoring drought. [BostonHerald]
  • Former NHL referee Paul Stewart responded to Jack Edwards' ire at the missed call on Saturday preceding Columbus' goal. [MassLive]
  • C'mon, Ref! Even Kerry Fraser weighed in. [TSN]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Bad hockey fan! BAD! Riots and fisticuffs are not just for soccer fans anymore. [TheHockeyNews]
  • The NHL hopes that a ruling in the NFL concussion lawsuit will work in their favor. [TSN]
  • Will YOU be ready if the call comes? This Swedish fan was... [BarDown]
  • Here's a different list- the year's best "alternative" hockey happenings. [PuckDaddy]
  • Patrick Kaleta got confused during a fight, and hit the wrong guy. [PuckDaddy]
  • The IIHF WJC is not selling out their stadiums- maybe they have overpriced the tickets? [YahooSports]
  • Thirty thoughts- Coyotes in the news, more fallout over the discourtesy in how the Devils hired Adam Oates. [SportsNet]
  • One fan photobombed Carl Soderberg (that's "defenceman Carl Soderberg," in the caption, apparently...) [SportsNet]
  • Take this quiz. Please. Allegedly, it is the hardest, EVER. [SportsnNet]
