Scary Good

Tuukka Rask was scary good, David Krejci rose from the dead, and the third line, well, ghosted.

The Bruins fly to Florida to face the Panthers tomorrow night at 7:30PM on NESN.

  • Shutout! The roster-challenged Bruins managed a solid defensive effort behind Tuukka Rask on Saturday, and were rewarded. Zane McIntyre offered Tim Schaller his opinion on the game winning goal. The Boston Globe
  • High fives all around, except to Brave Steve Ott... WEEI who has been disciplined. Detroit Free Press
  • Although he agrees in principle that headshots merit swift justice, Claude Julien reserved his opinion on the David Pastrnak situation. Pastrnak seemed chastised. Danton Heinen subbed in for him, and Austin Czarnik was able to play before family and friends at the Joe. Boston Herald
  • Finally, David Krejci was wheeling more like, well, David Krejci, while the third line went M.I.A.- again. The Boston Globe
  • Lions and tigers and bears- OH MY! Czech out the Davids and Zdeno Chara in their Halloween finery. @MKMolnar
  • Things have not fundamentally changed with the team, as Kirk Luedeke points out. (It just feels a lot better to face the ongoing problems after a win.) Scouting Post
  • Jimmy Howard looked good for the Red Wings, so natch, the rumors are now brewing. Hockeybuzz

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • NHLers will feel the pinch and their endorsement contracts will be in limbo as Bauer's parent company teeters on the edge of bankruptcy. TSN
  • Why does Jason (from the Friday the 13th movies) wear a hockey goalie mask? Bar Down
  • Have a look at fans and NHLers in the spirit (and in costumes) of the season. (Video, 1:56) Sportsnet
  • This extensive compilation of costumes comes from around the league. Jaromir Jagr is shown here dancin' like King Tut. Raw Charge Steve Martin did it better... (Video, 2:10) NBC SNL
  • In the Top 10 Tweets of the month, Brave Steve Ott shows a softer side, and Marc-Andre Fleury demonstrates why his forte may actually be curling. Sportsnet
  • Part three of this series on the mental, physical, and financial struggles of kids who pursue hockey as a career is an indictment of the OHL system. It isn't only the best players that rise to the top- just follow the money. Hamilton Spectator part 3 of 3
  • The Barclays Center will squeeze lemonade from lemons by by partnering with 7-11 to promote The Icee Company, Slush Puppie, Rita's Italian Ice, and Slurpee. NO, REALLY! Lighthouse Hockey
  • BOO! It isn't too late to frighten small children (and many NHL players) costumed as Sexy Pierre McGuire, as seen right here at Shop.NHL.Com- EEEEK! NO, REALLY! Lighthouse Hockey
