Morning all!

The Fancy Cats visit the Bruins later this afternoon in an attempt to take two points and move ahead of the Bruins in the playoff standings.

Cute kitty (yes, he sure is!) but the Bruins themselves can't afford to pussyfoot around this afternoon.

Anyway, enough looking back into the past, and let's get these links started right meow.

  • The Bruins' lines are no longer set in stone and Claude Julien has taken to firing up his line blender as of late. [Boston Globe]

  • Here come the Oilers. No, really. Last night the Oilers and Rangers combined for 12 goals, Lauri Korpikoski notched a hat trick, and the Oilers won their 5th straight. No, really. [TSN]
