The Bruins were 'bouyed by the boys' in last night's win over the Panthers.

  • Cam Neely's reaction from the box should tell you everything you need to know. Torey Krug came-this-close to a goal. Here's the GIF recap of the game. []

  • Shhhhhh! A "secret message" sparked the Bruins to their third period press to win. [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Take five... observations from the game. After that ever-so-patient backhander, Loui Eriksson became the third Bruin to tally 20 goals this season. [WEEI]

  • March heirs? The Milan Lucic / Ryan Spooner / David Pastrnak line drove scoring for the Bruins in the month of March. [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Lucic has stepped up his game, although his scoring opportunities have increased thanks to the less competitive matchups that his linemates require. [WEEI]

  • Once Lucic got his feet moving, the ice tilted. Adam McQuaid made a save. The win gives the Bruins a chance to tie the Red Wings in points when they meet again on Tuesday. [MetroWestDailyNews]

  • Two kids. Check. Big veteran winger. Czech. The Panthers played that line, too, with Jaromir Jagr / Aleksander Barkov / Jonathan Huberdeau . Tuukka Rask wryly credited an almost 40 minute effort in the win. [PatriotLedger]

  • And guess who was awarded the NESN "7th Player Award" pregame? [CausewayCrowd]

  • Dennis Seidenberg will hopefully NOT be available to represent Germany in the World Cup, despite his carefully worded offer to do so. (Google translation from German) [RP-Online]

  • Meanwhile, Linus Arnesson is settling in in Providence, and his fellow Swedes in the Bruins system have helped him to adjust. [TurnTo10]

  • Never on a Sunday... a look back at a Bruins vs. Maple Leafs game from 1951 that was never finished. [GreatestHockeyLegends]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • This year's Stanley Cup Champion is likely to return the trophy to the East. Discuss. [TooManyMenOnTheSite]

  • The road to the Panthers was a bumpy one for old friend Steven Kampfer , whose return to the AHL served to make him a better player. He even steps in as a forward if needed! [MetroWestDailyNews]

  • It is sad that Cam Talbot 's appearance on ice is marked mostly by concern for Henrik Lundqvist . This is the tough lot of an NHL backup goaltender. [MontrealGazette]

  • At least if the Bruins are not yet "contenders," they don't appear on this list of three playoff teams that might just choke. [TheHockeyNews]

  • The Traveling Jagrs have joined forces with the Panthers to find and crown a new member with the iconic mullet. [PuckDaddy]

  • Let's review the history and origin of the celebrated "Gordie Howe Hat Trick." [ThirdStringGoalie]

  • How should the Vezina Trophy winner be selected? Maybe the wrong stats are being used. [InGoalMag]

  • Just fix the tanking problem, once and for all. It has become an embarassment. Here's how to do it. [Grantland]
