The New-Look Bruins limber up for tomorrow's game against the Flames at 7:00 PM. The month of March will be a whirlwind.


  • Sadly, the Flames have lost their captain Mark Giordano to a season-ending injury. [CA.news.Yahoo]

  • Johnny Gaudreau is using this Flames road trip as an opportunity to thank his high school teachers and visit his old BC stomping ground. [CourierPost]

  • DING! DING! DING! Gregory Campbell v. Maxime Talbot , round two. [MetroWestDailyNews]

  • No major move on the defense side means opportunites for existing Bruins and PBruins. [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Brett Connolly is settling in as the Bruins assess where he may slot in... [TheBostonGlobe]

  • ... while he and Jordan Caron have a lot in common, as each gets a fresh start with a new team. [CausewayCrowd]

  • Sighs of relief in the dressing room were perhaps the only sound as the trade deadline passed. [PatriotLedger]

  • The biggest sigh would have been from Ryan Spooner , who missed shuffling off to Buffalo bythismuch. [WEEI]

  • And aren't we all thankful to see Spooner still in a Bruins' uniform? He has been great in this call-up, and his timing couldn't be better. [BruinsDaily]

  • Here's more in-depth analysis of the deadline decisionmaking and an explanation of how Craig Cunningham came to be exposed (and lost) on waivers. [HockeyBuzz]

  • Claude Julien voiced his customary unity with Peter Chiarelli on the final results. Adam McQuaid remained absent from practice yesterday. [BostonHerald]

  • Talbot has joined the team, and McQuaid is on ice for today's practice. Have a look at the forward lines here. [WEEI]

  • In this peek behind the curtain, Peter Chiarelli was burning up phone minutes in the weeks approaching deadline. His near-misses were telling, and his deal for Connolly was almost Rich Peverley-esque in having flown under the radar. [MyNHLTradeRumors]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Here is player development advice that the Bruins could use going forward. [ArcticIceHockey]

  • How appropriate post trade deadline to look at the players who have become famous as journeymen around the NHL: Having played for 12 teams is the magic number for the record. [TheHockeyNews]

  • The Leafs' Kyle Dubas' address at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference was more than met the ear. [TheGlobeAndMail]

  • Weighing in on all the NHL trades, it seems like "change of scenery" factored consistently into each Bruins move. [PuckDaddy]

  • The Panthers invoked Rule 5.3 as both Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya were injured last night in a loss. March 3 is a red-letter day for former Bruin Rob Tallas! [PuckDaddy]

  • Jordan Caron is honest in his personal assessment, looking to hit his stride in Colorado on a line that also includes former tammate Jarome Iginla as well as Matt Duchene . [DenverPost]

  • Whatever happend to former Bruin draft pick and PBruin Matt Lashoff ? He has resurfaced. [AHL]

  • Is UND for real, or is it all just Bruins prospect Zane McIntyre ? [PuckDaddy]

  • Oops, guilty! We missed celebrating an important day yesterday. [MontrealGazette]

  • Perplexing. That's the assessment of the Bruins' moves post trade deadline in this review of all NHL teams at day's end. [Grantland]

  • And the broadcast rights for the World Cup of Hockey go to... [AwfulAnnouncing]
