Rivalry night tonight in the City of Brotherly Love- Flyers. Bruins. 8:00PM.

  • Jimmy Hayes responded well to being a healthy scratch, and Claude Julien sounds cautiously optimistic about his fourth line for the first time in a LONG time.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • In fact, Hayes has earned himself a bit of a promotion.[BostonHerald]

  • It has been 41 games, now. At the halfway point in the season, take a look at what remains up in the air for the Bruins. What have been the pleasant (and unpleasant) surprises?[Hockeybuzz]

  • And notably at that halfway point, Patrice Bergeron leads the team in more ways than one. One newcomer has impressed.[NESN]

  • Hooray for the Bruins youngsters, the homegrown as well as the surprise acquisition. They've been a bright spot this season.[]

  • The Bruins clearly miss David Krejci, and all that is left is for their best to step up. Sadly, seizing opportunity has not been their strong suit of late.[PatriotLedger]

  • Cheer up, Bruins fans, the apocalyptic predictions for the team following the Bruins' off-season moves never did come true![PuckDrunkLove]

  • As for tonight, Shayne Gostisbehere is out of the Flyers lineup. Enjoy the GIFS in the comments section.[BroadStreetHockey]

  • Catch up on the Providence Bruins' productive past week (Malcolm Subban pulled a Tuukka Rask!) and sit in on a quick chat with AHL All-Star Seth Griffith. (Audio, 12:43)[PBruinsThisWeek]

  • Got rumors? The Bruins would be wise to look at defensemen in the market, and a couple of names keep coming up...[MyNHLTradeRumors]...including one especially big target.[Hockeybuzz]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Oh, ESPN, never change- how is it that in a city where sporting champions reign, TWO Stanley Cups don't even register?[PuckDaddy]

  • It's not what he said, it's how he said it! P.K. Subban will face fines for failing to cuss in a mixture of French and English...NO, REALLY![TheBeaverton]

  • Calgary's mayor is being applauded for sticking it to the Bettman.[TheHockeyNews]

  • There was a lot of buzz after the announcement of the "Soul on Ice" independent film project, it has now been completed.[NHL]

  • Take a visit to stunning Prague, and find out why Jaromir Jagr has always sported the number 68 on his sweater.[FlightNetwork]

  • MADNESS! In Week #14, the Panthers maintain their hold at the top of the league and the Coyotes have reached #5, while the Bruins drift down to #25 in this power ranking.[SportsIllustrated]

  • Might a certain former Bruin's comments have sparked the Panthers vs. Canucks tussle postgame on Monday? Would we be surprised?[Sportsnet]

  • Elliotte Friedman offers his Thirty Thoughts. The thirtieth echoes the sentiments of Kirk Luedeke.[Sportsnet]

  • Luedeke meanders a bit from his usual hockey beat to meditate on the passing of David Bowie. Modern Love was my favorite, too... (with videos)[ScoutingPost]

  • What happened at the apartment of Alex Galchenyuk should not be fodder for jokes even as hockey culture and journalists continue to get it wrong.[PensionPlanPuppets]
