The Bruins clawed back after a two goal deficit to beat the Rangers in a shootout.

  • Here's Kirk Luedeke's take on the game. Jeremy Smith 's resilience paid off, Zac Rinaldo danced on the line, and Tyler Randell achieved 2/3 of a Gordie Howe hat trick.  [ScoutingPost]

  • A few more quick takes- Local brothers Jimmy Hayes and Kevin Hayes notched a point apiece, Joonas Kemppainen impressed.  [WEEI]

  • Thanks a lot, Ryan Bourque , now Zdeno Chara is out with an upper body injury.  [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Good Morrow, Bruins fans! Time and unexpected injuries make it increasingly likely that mobile defenseman Joe Morrow will be seeing ice time in Boston.  [WEEI]

  • As for Zac Rinaldo and his penalties... so far only DRAWN, not assessed! Whooda thunk?  [WEEI]

  • Having to adapt with new skills and strategies learned were the benefit of Kevan Miller 's injury. He returns this season with a new bag of defensive tools.  [WorcesterTelegram&Gazette]

  • Brad Marchand underestimated his elbow injury, and was glad for having had repairs done over the summer. Bonus: Ten players were cut yesterday.  [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Hind sight being 20-20, re-signing Dennis Seidenberg might not have been the best move. Will the youngsters stepping up to help cover his newest injury and the time gained to evaluate them be a silver lining?  [PuckDaddy]
