Don't look back... Loui Eriksson
Don't look back... Loui Eriksson
Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have Bruins press credentials, take a peek behind the curtain with former Stanley Cup of Chowder writer Wayne Whittaker. [AlongTheBoards] (Ed. Note: We love you, Wayne!)

In Bruins news you can use:
  • Loui Eriksson looks to be the one to join Milan Lucic and David Krejci in the fall. Here are the numbers supporting why this is good news . Extra props to the writer for likening John Scott to "A single celled organism."  [DaysOfYOrr]
  • Here are the Providence Bruins likeliest to benefit from openings in Boston, and why Gregory Campbell 's ultimate destination will drive other roster decisions. [CausewayCrowd]
  • David Pastrnak is currently training with the Třinec Steelers while wearing his Bruins helmet and probably borrowed gear. (Google translation from Czech, with video 0:41) [iSport.Blesk]
  • The schedule has been released for Bruins games to be broadcast on national television. [NESN]
Elsewhere around the rink:
  • There is intriguing buzz surrounding a former Boston College Eagle who may not sign with the Blackhawks after all. #FREEHAYES! [ChicagoNow]
  • There is a potential buyer for the Islanders... just one. [TheScore]
  • Summer school is in session! Here's a quick course on dCorsi. [PensionPlanPuppets]
  • Players shouldn't pride themselves on racking up large numbers of hits, here's why. [TheSportingNews]
  • See why teams that come through in the clutch are congratulating themselves for what is actually a lucky coin flip, and the ramifications of this for any team hoping for a Stanley Cup. [StatsInSights]
  • Climate change is threatening the very roots of hockey. Thin ice (or worse, no ice) and short winters hinder outdoor play. [ForeignPolicy]
  • Thomas Vanek "will fully cooperate with U.S. Federal authorities" regarding a gambling investigation. [TheHockeyNews]
  • In the final Thirty Thoughts column before summer hiatus... Apparently the Islanders were offering Jarome Iginla four years.  [CBCSports]
  • Good news for Canadiens prospect Tim Bozon, who will play in a tournament with the French national team in his return to the ice after a life-threatening illness. [BuzzingTheNet]
  • Detroit desperately needs revitalization, but questions surround the Red Wings' Ilitch family's prior lapses and failures with public funds in development projects around the city. [KuklasKorner]
  • Just for kicks, revisit this memorable prank phone call from a Boston bar to a Pittsburgh bar during the ECF Game #4 in 2013. [Vanyaland]
