In Bruins news:

  • Was Ryan Spooner’s trial on the wing for the purpose of showcasing? And HOLY MOLY, did you see the other Jake DeBrusk rush to the net last night, aside from the one that led to the Seth Griffith goal? Causeway Crowd
  • In case you missed it, the Bruins topped the Blue Jackets 2-1. Claude Julien was impressed by his youngsters, and will also take one more hard look at Christian Ehrhoff. Boston Herald
  • It looks like Anton Khudobin has passed his audition, and in the final accounting, this may be best for both Malcolm Subban and Tuukka Rask. The Boston Globe
  • Colin Miller notched a goal, and hopes that his improved defensive play will earn him a roster spot. Brandon Carlo is making a strong case to be considered. The Boston Globe
  • David Pastrnak is biding his time for other roster decisions to sift down in order to find his place. Patrice Bergeron sees some of the choicest parts of a former linemate in him. (With video) Patriot Ledger
  • Don’t read too much into it, but Brad Marchand has replaced David Krejci on the banner outside TD Garden. @MKMolnar
