  • Here's a preview of tonight's game. The Lightning have been a middling road team, despite Steven Stamkos ' outstanding efforts. [Bruins Daily]

  • Milan Lucic and the kids have done just fine, but don't expect that that they'll stay together after David Krejci's return. Their numbers have been deceiving. [WEEI]

  • True Confessions: Torey Krug helped Ryan Spooner become a good roommate. Maturity and "conviction" have brought the final piece to Spooner's professional game after a string of disappointments. [MetroWestDailyNews ]

  • Dennis Seidenberg is ready to tap up his already big minutes into the playoffs, and has put his knee injury in the rear view mirror. [PatriotLedger ]

  • Is it too soon for talking off-season trades? The Coyotes may be willing to deal their captain, and a former Bruins backup goalie might be just the ticket for the team whose captain is a former Bruins teammate.  [TheHockeyNews]
