The universe twisted around on top of itself last night- Reimer was suddenly in net, Lucic scored, then Bergeron...

But the Bruins lost to the Maple Leafs in overtime anyway. Let's reconvene tomorrow as the Bruins host the Flyers at 1pm, shall we?

  • But, but... it was 3-1! The Bruins pondered some of the officiating, but realize that their bad first period sunk them. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Patrice Bergeron was pushed heavily into Jonathan Bernier, who was injured and subsequently left the game. [BostonHerald]
  • And that makes two games in a row that the Bruins fell to possible playoff opponents. []
  • At least Claude Julien has five more games to try some player mix 'n match and weigh his options, perhaps slotting Loui Eriksson on the second line or trying Carl Söderberg centering the first or second lines... Neither Matt Bartkowski nor Andrej Meszaros has made a strong case for a permanent spot on defense. [WEEI]
  • Congratulations to Söderberg and his wife, as he returned to Boston to be on hand for a blessed event. [HeraldNews]
  • Jarome Iginla is having himself a season. [CBCSports]
  • Forget the serial "suspect" calls, Nikolai Kulemin 's late game penalty demonstrates how soccer's "stoppage time" would even the playing field for a team in the Bruins' situation, and discourage wild liberties being taken in the closing minutes of critical games. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Here's a breakdown on a Bruins breakdown from the Red Wings game, Gustav Nyquist 's goal. [BackhandShelf]
