The Bruins are so beyond the Winter Classic!

  • Nothing to see here, move along... and that means the Bruins face the high-flying Capitals tomorrow.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Broadcast ratings of the event are in, and viewership (at least from the United States) was not very impressive.[TodaysSlapShot]

  • At least David Pastrnak and Joonas Kemppainen look ready to return to action, and Colin Miller has returned.[WEEI]

  • Hey, at least the Providence Bruins beat the Rochester Americans on Sunday.[DemocratAndChronicle]

  • Catch up with the young Bruins prospects in the pipeline. New Red Deer Rebel Jake DeBrusk wowed 'em...[ScoutingPost]...while the OHL Hamilton Bulldogs' answer to Jack Edwards dishes on Zach Senyshyn...[ScoutingPost]...who was featured as Kirk Luedeke's Prospect of the Month for December.[ScoutingPost]

  • Willie O'Ree was grateful that the Bruins had his back upon his first call-up to face the Habs.[PlayersTribune]

Eslewhere around the rink:

  • Pick John Scott, and make him captain- IT'S HILARIOUS... except the fanbase is laughing AT him, not with him.[DownGoesBrown]

  • Laugh along with Paul Stewart as he reminisces about good times he had with with soon-to retire fellow officials including (former pro wrestler) Mike Cvik, whose Zdeno Chara-esque stature and monsterous appetite led them into trouble at a Chinese buffet in Quebec.[HockeyBuzz]

  • A number of factors hindered the success of the groundbreaking women's game at the Winter Classic- logistical problems stymied planning and ultimately left the event without a broadcast.[VictoryPress] You can see some highlights of the game here.(Video, 4:04)[YouTube]

  • Liam Fitzgerald may be onto something. Physical contact such as fist bumps, hugs, and high-fives improve teams' performaces.[]

  • The confessions of a long-tenured Air Canada Centre hockey usher, who surprisingly has yet to attend a hockey game as a paying fan. [TheStar]

  • There was another outdoor game held in the Czech Republic on New Year's Day that looked like a lot of fun in a more intimate setting.[BarDown]

  • Remember the "Collect 'Em All" Staal brothers? Take a look at the Thunder Bay, ON family that sent four sons to professional hockey.(Video, 4:40)[Sportsnet]

  • DON'T. BUMP. THE. GOALIE. It was a donnybrook as the Connecticut Whale's Danielle Ward make contact with the New York Riveters' Jenny Scrivens, who had frozen a puck at netfront.(With video, 0:45)[TheHockeyNews]

  • Neighbors behaving badly- an outdoor pond in Minnesota that was oh-so-charming during the summer was sanded in an effort to stop winter pond hockey games that disturbed a new neighbor's serenity.[CityPages]
