On to Philadelphia, where tomorrow night the Flyers host the Bruins at 8:00PM. RIVALRY NIGHT!

  • The Rangers stuck with a well-known game plan, and it worked. The good news? Jimmy Hayes (the RIGHT brother) scored on a Broadway wrist shot.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • At least it was an entertaining game, as most Bruins vs. Rangers games are.[Hockeybuzz]

  • We saw a lot of the fourth line last evening, and nothing at all of Frank Vatrano. (With video)[NESN]

  • Kirk Luedeke speaks in (limited) defense of Kevan Miller, and in hopes that the Bruins are looking hard at Keith Yandle...[ScoutingPost]

  • Snakebitten Brett Connolly camethisclose to getting one past Henrik Lundqvist.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Connolly's struggles will affect Loui Eriksson 's negotiations with the Bruins at the end of the season.[WEEI]

  • Take five... obeservations from the game. Surprisingly, the Bruins took no penalties last evening.[WEEI]

  • Need some good news? How about bullet points from the Providence Bruins' successful weekend?[SouthCoastToday]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Yeah, yeah, the Flyers think they've got the next Patrice Bergeron... whatever.[BroadStreetHockey]

  • This expose on life for a former NHLer plying his trade in the KHL comes from Ryan Whitney.[PlayersTribune]

  • Congrats to Mike "Doc" Emrick, who now has a troika of National Sportscaster of the Year wins![NSSAFame]

  • Let them eat cake! The Bettman seems tone-deaf in his pressure to have a new arena for the Flames, despite the current slump in the local economy.[NationalPost]

  • There are ways to bend the rules, but one player couldn't slide his attempt past Paul Stewart...[Hockeybuzz]

  • The Panthers finally lost, ending their surprising 12 game win streak, and things got chippy with the Canucks after the game ended.[SBNation]

  • At least Alex Galchenyuk was able to maintain a civil head as his girlfriend had a meltdown, she was subsequently arrested for domestic abuse.[Sportsnet]

  • Tim Thompson of HNIC video opening montage fame has a new piece commissioned by the Maple Leafs for us to enjoy, and paused to talk about it. (With video)[CanadaYahooSports]

  • Fun must be always! Charming Tomas Hertl reciprocated a fistbump through the glass to a small fan.[BarDown]

  • Now you know the REST OF THE STORY... Sean Penn crept up to the secret mountain lair to nail the interview with El Capo. That'd be Jack Capuano, of course... NO, REALLY![LighthouseHockey]
