What game will YOU be watching tonight as the Bruins travel to Washington to face the Capitals tomorrow evening at 8:00 PM?

  • Loui Eriksson has been clutch in tight situations. He has the zen-like patience of a veteran at net front. (With video) [MetroWestDailyNews]

  • Small world: Ryan Spooner was Brett Connolly 's linemate (and Dougie Hamilton a teammate) representing Canada at the IIHF U18 World Junior Championships. [PatriotLedger]

  • Much depends upon matchups. With the playoff standings still quite close, what are the the Bruins' best and worst options, and why? [WEEI]

  • Now that you mention it, the tail end of this season is playing out exactly like the ending of so many frustrating games this season for the Bruins. [BostonHerald]

  • It would have been nice for the team to have been in a position to fine-tune and rest rather than struggle to clinch... [BostonHerald]

  • The remnants of the Merlot Line have been slipping for some time. With his contract about up, Gregory Campbell is focused on simply helping his team. [WEEI]

  • Thank goodness for the steady play of Zach Trotman , who has played solid defense in the long absence of Hamilton. [NESN]

  • Although Zdeno Chara is practicing today, Dennis Seidenberg is not. [WEEI]

  • The Bruins' own grumpy Chris Kelly is a featured guest on the Marek vs. Wyshynski podcast! [PuckDaddy]

  • After a virtual dustup over a mis-attributed mis-quote, Jack Edwards and Matt Kalman have shaken hands and moved on. [Boston.CBSLocal]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • If it is any comfort, a bunch of perennial Stanley Cup contenders are in the same boat as the Bruins, on the knife edge of a playoff berth. Here is an overview and explanation. [USAToday]

  • In a bittersweet goodbye befitting their final season at the Nassau Coliseum, the Islanders are bound for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. [NHL]

  • Jaromir Jagr FOREVER! Revisit why this player remains not only a top player, but a fan favorite. [PuckDrunkLove]

  • Now (coincidentally?) based in Las Vegas, the Parros family is busy marketing two fashion lines and with "Hockey Wives." George Parros spoke about enforcers, NHL expansion, his professional plans, and then finessed a question about his opinion of the Bettman. [ESPN]

  • It is not to late to earn that MBA with a focus on the business of hockey.  [TheGlobeAndMail]

  • One NHL player offers his take on the best of the best NHL defensemen. Disclaimer: The author is a Western Conference player, and the results are biased accordingly. [ThePlayersTribune]

  • It just figures.  Now Chris Stewart is included as one of the top trade deadline acquisitions, after the Bruins passed on him. [TheHockeyNews]

  • You haven't lived until you've seen REAL bruins hockey (or shooty-hoops!)  [BarDown]
