The Bruins prepare to face the Wild tomorrow night, then travel to play the Rangers on Wednesday.

  • In case you missed it, boo-boos and miscues were the name of the game on Saturday. Claude Julien is going to take his time assessing, and then changes will be coming. The Boston Globe
  • Take five... observations from the game. WEEI
  • Crisp outlet passes. Is it too much to ask? Torey Krug is still looking to settle into his game, leaving the Bruins scrambling in their own end far too often, and with predictable results. The Boston Globe
  • Hellooooo? Jimmy Hayes, Matt Beleskey, and Riley Nash, your team is calling. Ultimately it was system failures in the second period that doomed the Bruins against the Canadiens. Get well soon, Frank Vatrano, and we miss you sometimes, Carl Soderberg! WEEI
  • Happily, the fourth line (Noel Acciari, Dominic Moore, and Tim Schaller) has been in synch, and effective. Boston Herald
  • Having returned from a sojourn to the press box, Ryan Spooner was determined to make the most of his ice time. Anton Khudobin looked much better in the loss, but still wasn't happy. Boston Herald
  • No, rushing Tuukka Rask back from his injury is not the answer, for the short OR the long run. Also, things are.. interesting... in Providence, as Malcolm Subban struggles and Zane McIntyre shines. WEEI
  • Patrice Bergeron- is not just adored by Boston fans, but also by his fellow NHLers. He may prove to be the best defensive NHL forward EVER. The Hockey News Need proof? This compilation of Bergeron highlights speaks for itself. (Video, 4:56)  YouTube
  • David Pastrnak seems both boyish and wise beyond his years in this profile. He wanted to be a goalie, but equipment costs were prohibitive. Nice shiner! (With video) Today's Slap Shot
  • Meanwhile, in Providence, the PBruins took one point yesterday from their OT loss to the Albany Devils. Austin Czarnik and Peter Cehlarik each generated a goal and assist, and Malcolm Subban bounced back from his last underwhelming last two outings. Providence Journal McIntyre was backup, having returned from his callup. @MarkDivver
