  • The Bruins will now have a chance to focus on Friday's visit from the Canadiens.[WEEI]

  • Hats off to Jimmy Hayes, who notched a hat trick in the waning hundredths of seconds in the game.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • So, how do you like the acquisitions of Max Talbot and Landon Ferraro now, Bruins fans?[PatriotLedger]

  • Skip over the part in this piece where the stark reality of the loss of David Krejci is demonstrated statistically. Skip to the good part about other players stepping up in his absence![WEEI]

  • The naughty outweighed the nice as the game moved through the third period. Sometimes in hockey, things just get "goofy."[TheBostonGlobe]

  • What happened last night was a throwback to an earlier era of hockey. Patrice Bergeron and Matt Beleskey each scored two, Max Talbot looked like his old self, and Ryan Spooner did his job.[ScoutingPost]

  • Here's one final take on the game. Bonus: Ty Anderson and Andy Merritt (NEHJ) sit for a chat postgame. (With audio, 43:26)[Hockeybuzz]

  • Brad Marchand will be under scrutiny after his familiar-looking upending of Mark Borowiecki.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • A Department of Player Safety phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30PM eastern today, so we'll know Marchand's fate.[KuklasKorner]

  • Poor Borowiecki later tangled with an irate Zdeno Chara.[PuckDaddy]

  • Milt Schmidt reminisced about the Bruins vs. Habs rivalry, and the moment that he will treasure the rest of his life.[BostonHerald]

  • In part two of his interview with Mark Divver, Joe Tasca pauses to review the past week in Providence Bruins hockey news. (Audio, 12:24)[PBruinsThisWeek]

  • It was not the best weekend for the PBruins, although Seth Griffith demonstrated why he received the call up to Boston.[ProvidenceJournal]

Elsewhere around the rink:


  • World Junior Championship action recap: Canada squeaked by Switzerland in a shootout win, while Russia thumped Belarus.[TheHockeyNews]

  • Elliotte Friedman offers his Thirty Thoughts, and dishes on the struggle to present a women's game in conjunction with the Winter Classic.[Sportsnet]

  • Patrick Burke's take on the same is here, he served as a sort of intermediary between the NHL, CWHL, and NWHL at times.[PuckDaddy]

  • CWHL founder and commissioner Brenda Andress spoke about why she doesn't value things, but rather focuses on people, and how she never aspired to be Gary Bettman.[TheGlobeAndMail]

  • Of the Top 10 Games of 2015, Boston teams were involved, and not just NHL ones.[PuckDaddy]

  • Someone misses hockey. A lot. He was never going to be an NHLer, but still savors his experience with the game.[NeutralMilkMalone]
