The Bruins face the Canadiens tonight at TD Garden, 7:30pm.

  • Here's where we left off on Saturday: The Bruins battled back from behind the Coyotes, Shawn Thornton scored the game winning goal, and Claude Julien don't want no easy games. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • "A good, solid four-line attack may not be the sexiest thing, but the B’s have proven it can take them a long way." They're still tinkering with the defensive pairings. [BostonHerald]
  • Take two... points to chat about from the game, faceoff dominance and 1-on-1 battle victories paid off. [CausewayCrowd]
  • What went right, and wrong, for the Bruins against the Coyotes. [WEEI]
  • The Chief, Johnny Bucyk, was gracious as Jarome Iginla surpassed his historical scoring benchmark. Iginla feels "blessed" for the opportunity to work with (and be teased by) the Bruins legend. [BostonHerald]
  • Just the facts.. take a look at the stats behind the twelve game win streak. Iginla has been red hot, and get a load of Tuukka Rask and Chad Johnson! [WEEI]
  • Speaking of Johnson, he appreciates playing on a team that is "so committed defensively," and wants to do his part to help his team win. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • The Bruins are not built to draw penalties and win on resulting power plays. Embellishment is a dirty word to Julien. Zdeno Chara is "is the best shutdown defenseman in the NHL," and should be in Norris Trophy contention. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Are the Bruins peaking too soon? Then again, does it really matter? [GuardianLibertyVoice]
  • There are still whispers that Dennis Seidenberg may make a return to the ice if the Bruins go deep into the playoffs... [WEEI]
  • ... but don't get your hopes up too high. [Boston.com]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • This is noteworthy- an apology has been sent to the Panthers by the NHL for the blown call that cost them the game against the Maple Leafs. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • Have a look at James Neal as an example of what is wrong with the NHL's efforts at discipline. [HockeyBuzz]
  • Clarkson has won the women's NCAA championship by surprising the Minnesota Golden Gophers. [USCHO]
