The Bruins return home to face the Rangers on Saturday night at 7:00PM on NESN.

  • What a night in Tampa Bay! It took 10 rounds and the long reach of Jimmy Hayes to settle this one. He and Riley Nash were the shootout heroes. The Boston Globe
  • It turns out Zane McIntyre is the wellspring of good advice. The suspicion on Tuesday was that John-Michael Liles had broken his jaw, thankfully that was not the case. Boston Herald
  • Take five (one for every other shootout attempt last night, if you're counting) observations from the unlikely victory. Can we pause to whine a bit about the offside challenge to a goal? WEEI
  • Did you see Brandon Carlo's save? As if scoring a goal were not enough... (With video) NESN
  • Others have been impressed by Carlo's "elite" shot-blocking skills. Boston CBS Local
  • The newest member of the third line celebrated his NHL debut. Sean Kuraly stepped in for Matt Beleskey, and acquitted himself well. We got the power- the Bolts' power play lived up to its reputation, and Ryan Spooner capitalized on one in turn. The Boston Globe
  • Dig into this long read on Brad Marchand's evolution from sinner to winner. One scratch in a key game for the Mooseheads left him to begin his pro career in Boston under a shadow. WEEI
  • Marchand and Claude Julien have an understanding about keeping chirps in check. Bar Down
  • Lost and found: the Hockey Hall of Fame has located Gerry Cheevers' iconic mask. ESPN
  • As a special thanks to Tuukka Rask, who kept his team in this one, here is Finland's Steve'n'Seagulls performing "Thunderstruck." (Video, 4:05) YouTube Then the band laces their skates to take on the Team Finland women in this video of "You Shook Me All Night Long." (Video, 3:20) YouTube
  • And congratulations (?) are flocking in from our worthy opponents at Raw Charge. @RawCharge
  • Lend your ears to the Bearly on Topic podcast- mull over Malcolm Subban's situation and the Zen of Zane McIntyre, then finish with a side of Pasta. (Audio, 56:57) Soundcloud
