The Bruins take a breather before Wednesday evening's game against the Flyers.


  • In case you went to bed early all weekend, Tyler Randell is a snipah, Kevan Miller is a beast, and the Bruins won both of their road games. (With videos)[NESN]

  • But some things looked eerily familiar- blowing a two-goal lead in a mere three minutes, Brad Marchand potting a shorthanded goal, and Patrice Bergeron scoring twice to cap the win.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • A healthy David Krejci is riding the top of the NHL scoreboard- there is one factor that has especially helped him to arrive there.[WEEI]

  • Answering the call created by injuries, hard work and ambition have landed Torey Krug immediately behind Krejci as the Bruins second highest scorer.[BostonHerald]

  • Two shots, two goals. Come on, forget the sample size, and be happy for Randell- everyone else is. The Bruins are taking a breather and return to their normal practice schedule tomorrow.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • The road trip was good news for Claude Julien, as the new system (along with a strong forecheck and sustained back pressure) finally paid off in a couple of wins.[BostonHerald]

  • Don't count out a continuing major contribution to the team by Zdeno Chara despite some decline in his numbers.[Sportsnet]

  • Meanwhile, back in Providence... the PBruins' Frank Vatrano is the AHL version of David Krejci. The team is suffering a high rate of injury. [ProvidenceJournal]
