NHL: Preseason-Boston Bruins at Detroit Red Wings
Danton Heinen and his hot hands
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

In Bruins news:

  • Danton Heinen has survived the first round of cuts. He has impressed (as did Davids Backes and Pastrnak, his linemates, in their season debuts against the Flyers.) Heinen logged three goals in three preseason games. Can we keep him? The Boston Globe
  • Saturday’s win against the Flyers was a showcase for the Backes line. Boston Herald
  • If you missed it, here is video of Anton Khudobin’s showstopping save, Heinen’s goal, and the Joe Morrow to Ryan Spooner game winning goal (Morrow also had a fight, as seen here via Streamable) all from Friday’s OT win against Detroit. (Video, 0:39) Sportsnet
  • Sharks draftee Sean Kuraly (the OTHER part of the Martin Jones flip) could have pulled a Jimmy Vesey, but elected to stay with the Bruins. WEEI
  • It comes down to either a roster spot or back to junior for Jesse Gabrielle, who seeks to earn his spot as an agitator. Imagine- Brad Marchand has now become a role model! Gabrielle and Jake DeBrusk share some... history. The Boston Globe
  • Sunday’s camp cuts include 23 players, as detailed here. Some are headed for Providence, some for their junior teams, and some must clear waivers. The Bruins bade adieu to Peter Mueller. Mass Live
  • Team Europe’s OTHER grizzled German defenseman, Christian Ehrhoff, arrives on a PTO so that Bruins brass can take a look at him. Hockeybuzz
  • Sacrilege! It takes a brave man to say it aloud, but Brad Marchand’s performance merited consideration as World Cup MVP. Hockeybuzz
  • Bruins fans, our team is playoff bound, as asserted here. The Score

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Like white on ice- a mixup between equipment managers made for some confusion during this Panthers vs. Stars game. Bar Down
  • What was the attendance for the World Cup? It depends who you ask... The Globe And Mail
  • Jimmy Vesey and his advisors had scripted queries for potential teams, like this one posed to Alain Vigneault “His people had some real specific questions about how I work with young players...” NY Post
