How Many

We'll take the two points, they don't ask how, after all...

The Bruins squeaked one out against the Panthers last night.

  • It was pretty much all Tuukka Rask, and how about that Brad Marchand penalty snipe, or Dominic Moore's angled shot? Even mounting penalties didn't seem to tilt the ice. The Boston Globe
  • We've seen Marchand go from hate to GREAT, and not just in our own hometown eyes. ESPN
  • Speaking of penalties, the waning moments of the game showcased the work of stalwart Zdeno Chara and his young partner, Brandon Carlo. WEEI
  • Sometimes the Bruins can ride a hot goalie until luck turns. We'll take it. Boston Herald
  • Dear Bruins, fix your power play. Here's how you can do that. Today's Slapshot
  • The issue that kept Patrice Bergeron out at the beginning of the season flared up again, so Sean Kuraly was readied, but not needed. John-Michael Liles left the game after having been cut. The Boston Globe
  • Of five observations from the game, the first is a thank you to Reilly Smith, whose hook on Brad Marchand allowed us to enjoy watching him snipe a penalty shot past Roberto Luongo. WEEI
  • Kirk Luedeke is on the prospects beat, and his eye is on Anders Bjork. He reminds us to "chillax" on unlucky Zach Senyshyn, and is still bullish on the raw compete in Zane McIntyre's game. Scouting Post
  • Meanwhile, in weekend action from Providence, congratulations to Daniel Vladar, who was solid in his unexpected call up. The team's penalty kill is at 90%, although the power play is below 10% and the team rests in last place at present. Welp. Providence Journal
