The Bruins are in Winnipeg tonight to face the Jets at 8:00PM on NESN.

  • Patrice Bergeron is not likely to play tonight, so the Bruins will need to hear more from the admittedly cobbled up second and third lines if they expect to win. The Boston Globe
  • But it was 4-1... take five observations from Saturday’s loss in Toronto. Don’t be too hard on Anton Khudobin. WEEI
  • Just about every Bruin had a bad night. Possession numbers were dismal. No hope of a comeback on Saturday night, nope, no siree. Boston Herald
  • How about that David Pastrnak? And where are Ryan Spooner, David Krejci, and Danton Heinen hiding? Days of Y’Orr
  • Kirk Luedeke focused on the performances of each of the rookies after the Columbus game and sees room for optimism. Scouting Post
  • That night, however clearly belonged to Brad Marchand. Scouting Post
  • Brandon Carlo and his defensive partner for the World Junior Championship, Zach Werenski, demonstrated the dominant new playing style of young defensemen heading into the NHL. Bonus: Waiver wire snipings. The Boston Globe
  • Cheer up, at least the Providence Bruins beat the St. John’s Ice Caps at the Dunk yesterday. Providence Journal
  • Bruins prospect Cameron Hughes scored a beauty for the Wisconsin Badgers against the BC Eagles- have a look. (With video) Yahoo Sports

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Former Bruins in the news: It was a rough night for Loui Eriksson on Saturday, hey, at least he scored? (with video) The Hockey News Gregory Campbell has declined to report to Columbus’ AHL affiliate and has been suspended. The Hockey News
  • In related news, the death knell is sounding for seasoned “role players” all around the NHL. Yahoo Sports
  • Review the weekend’s action (with video) to see an odd penalty for an Islanders rookie, some ugly hits, and what two players worth a combined $15.5-million cap hit look like duking it out on ice. Sportsnet
  • Ron Maclean learned from his mother never to burn his bridges, and now his patience has paid off as he returns as host of HNIC. The Globe and Mail
  • Get your flu shots, Bruins fans! Carey Price was sent home late last week to rest on antibiotics (sidelined by flu) and has been placed on injured reserve. Habs Eyes On The Prize In good news, he was reportedly on ice today. @Frank_Servalli
  • First it was “Babsocks,” now the Islanders were selling some interesting “Duck Hunt” socks before the Anaheim game on Sunday. Bar Down
  • Welp... “Instead of the NHL app and the local club app competing for that same fan, we wanted to aggravate (sic) our audience and provide content from the club and the league, and allow fans to favorite and follow their favorite team.” Here’s the thinking behind the NHL’s new push to capture fan viewership, and why the Bruins’ site isn’t any fun anymore.
