The Devils host the Bruins tonight at 7:00PM.

  • As glad as we are to see David Pastrnak back, temper your enthusiasm- the Bruins roster has been mangled by injury. This weekend will likely see Jonas Gustavsson take a turn in net.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Pastrnak will be bringing his enthusiasm, but is still only 19. David Krejci is still on track, and Brad Marchand is poised to return from suspension tomorrow against... guess who?[PatriotLedger]

  • Patrice Bergeron joins a number of Boston-connected players at the All-Star Game, although he will be the lone Bruin.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Speaking of Pastrnak and Bergeron... how does a troika capped off with Loui Eriksson sound to you?[WEEI]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • The Canadiens , currently flush with goaltenders, traded Dustin Tokarski for the Ducks ' Max Friberg .[TheHockeyNews]

  • It's just business... Ryan Johansen and Seth Jones crossed paths en route to their new teams post-trade, and jovially posted a picture. Jones reportedly made Johansen a very gracious offer.[BarDown]

  • There have been surprisingly few one-for-one player trades of note. Many involve Bruins, and Sean McIndoe still can't bring himself to speak of one.[DownGoesBrown]

  • Mike Richards is no longer cavalier about his NHL career.[RussianMachineNeverBreaks]

  • One name is conspicuously absent from the NHL All-Star Game roster. This is not a bad thing.[SportingNews]

  • Dear NHL, hockey is FUN. Quit sucking all the joy from the game.[Vice]

  • Here are the hockey headlines to expect in 2016... including Evander Kane/Patrick Kane nuptials- it's a match made in heaven. NO, REALLY.[EmptyNetSports]

  • There were a pair of embellishment fines issued by the NHL this week, one to a Devil...[TodaysSlapShot]...and one to a Jet.[TodaysSlapShot]

  • Enjoy this gallery of classic NHL bobbleheads, including #4 Bobby Orr.[BarDown]

  • And just for fun, how about NHL logos incorporating team area codes?[BarDown]

  • A modest proposal: Dump the All-Star Game in favor of this proposed weekend of fun.[TheHockeyWriters]

  • Sports leagues have been far more open to green initiatives than commercial entities. Would the NHL agree to one more small change in support of the environment?[HockeyInSociety]

  • Live sporting events are a boon to advertisers for one big reason, and the cost of the NHL's broadcast rights are among the lowest in professional sports. Ka-ching![LastWordOnSports]

  • This quick GIF demonstrates one goaltender's resourcefulness and dedication to practicing.[Imgur, via Reddit]
