Tonight the Bruins host the Hurricanes at 7:00PM on NESN.

  • Here’s what to expect tonight. The Bruins (a couple of whom are former Canes) are down two veteran defensemen and fans are eagerly hoping for an interview with affable Anton Khudobin. Canes Country
  • Kill! KILL! The Bruins’ penalty kill has been stellar without Zdeno Chara, and employs a pretty big cast of characters, including journeyman Dominic Moore, who has potted a couple of shorties. Patriot Ledger
  • Memories... it has been eleven years since the Joe Thornton trade, and the fallout eventually led to the Stanley Cup. WEEI
  • Sorry, David Krejci, about the musical chairs of wingers and all, and glad you’re feeling better after your second hip procedure. Now about that contract of yours... WEEI
  • Pay. The. Man. David Pastrnak is into his final contract year, and although some of his numbers are unsustainable, (Exhibit A @NHLNetwork) he has easily earned an extension. The Boston Globe
  • Besides, the Bruins can afford him, as they are the fifth most valuable NHL franchise, according to Forbes Magazine. WEEI

  • In this holiday season brimming with eggnog and cookies, take a few fitness tips from the pros, including Zdeno Chara. The Boston Globe
  • Former Bruins in the news... Post visit, David Warsofsky reports a lot of progress in Craig Cunningham’s condition, although doctors are still unsure precisely what happened to him on November 19th.

(With video) NHL Dougie Hamilton trade rumors? BUNK! And to the team that started all of this, shaddap- or Burkie gonna name names. SBNation
  • The NHLPA is not biting at the NHL’s effort to dangle Olympic participation as a CBA bargaining chip. Alex Ovechkin is going rogue, regardless... The Score
  • ...besides, as the NHL apes MLB more and more, maybe an examination of what baseball has done will tip the Bettman’s CBA plans. Sportsnet
