For a team not expected to make the playoffs, the Bruins aren't in such bad position after all.

  • The Bruins will grin and bear it, as they head into the All-Star Break currently in a playoff spot.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • No doubt they're pondering three questions as they head off to rest and relax, the biggest one being what to do about Loui Eriksson.[WEEI]

  • Tuukka Rask reminds us of the benefit of slogging through difficult games. Consider the slow start to the season, and then be grateful for the team's current standing.[NESN]

  • At least David Pastrnak will get a game in during the break, he's headed to Providence to play.[Bruins.NHL]

  • Good news for Jonas Gustavsson, who was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon- the Bruins' medical staff will check him out next.[Bruins.NHL]

  • Matt Beleskey has been a good fit for the Bruins, and his father's favorite picture of his son is hung just under one of Bobby Orr.[OrangeCountyRegister]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • The NHL All-Star Game and the NFL Pro Bowl have one thing in common- they're a waste of your time.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • The AHL loves us and wants us to be happy. Pour a beer and watch their All-Star Game stream for FREE. Scratch that hockey itch during the break.[TheAHL]

  • The NHL Coaches have spoken, and not one Bruin is mentioned in their poll to determine the best of the best around the NHL.[TSN]

  • With all the talk about NHLers' troubles transitioning to life after the game, perhaps the gift planned for each player at the All-Star Game might inspire some sweet sounding second careers![BarDown]

  • It looks like Los Angeles was a successful move for Vincent Lecavalier, he is playing with energy and is getting results for his new team. Good on him![SportsIllustrated]

  • "Babsocks" are flying off the shelves- all the cool kids are wearing them![TheGlobeAndMail]
