Tomorrow the Stanley Cup Playoffs open for the Boston Bruins at home against the Detroit Red Wings, 7:30pm.

  • How's the weather up there? Being the favorite is not a position the Bruins are used to. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • The first round seems to challenge the Bruins, who tend to be slow out of the gate as the intensity ramps up in the playoffs. [HeraldNews]
  • Look at how Detroit ("pretty much Swedish players and UMaine players") stacks up against Boston, and the likely outcome. Boston is lucky to get the Wings in the first round, as Henrik Zetterberg is not yet back. [WEEI]
  • We noticed. Patrice Bergeron credits the Olympics for improving his already solid game. [TheHockeyNews]
  • It was the grace of the Bruins in losing out on Jarome Iginla to the Penguins last season that left the door open to him joining the team this season. Now Iginla is looking to cap his career with a cup. [BostonHerald]
  • Tuukka Rask is auctioning his "Boston Strong" mask to benefit One Fund Boston. [InGoal]

  • Got sheepskin? This infographic touts the NCAA's contribution to the NHL ranks in 2013-14. Even if they don't make the NHL, 85% of NCAA men's hockey players earn a degree. [SportDesigns]
  • "The Last Gladiators" is now available to view on Netflix. It is an unvarnished look at Chris Nilan and the price he paid as a tough guy in the NHL. [CBSEyeOnHockey]
