Pastrmania! Two games, two goals, two Bruins wins!

  • Facing a tired and injury depleted Lightning team, the Bruins felt their pain, having only recently celebrated the return of injured key players themselves. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • The Bruins have begun too look more like themselves, and one new addition is lighting 'em up out there. [PatriotLedger]
  • Here's a concise period-by-period blog of the action. Apparently a certain mom's visit is day-to-day as is her son's tenure with the Bruins. [SouthCoastToday]
  • And who was the game's first star? Just a kid hoping to stay with the team. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Take five... observations.  What was up with all the scrappin' last night? And how great were the resulting penalty kills? [WEEI]
  • You wanna go with Zdeno Chara? TWICE? Also, whatever motivates a fourth-liner to attack a skill player like David Krejci whose team is in the lead? [CBSSports]
  • Did you notice that the Bruins battled back from being down a goal, not once, but TWICE? [BruinsDaily]
  • Wow! The Bruins have won some games! What changed? [WEEI]
