On to the dreaded Saturday matinee in Buffalo against the Sabres on Saturday. Puck drop is at 1:00PM on NESN.

  • If you stayed awake through the first two periods, here are the five things you might have learned from the Bruins’ shootout win. WEEI
  • Anton Khudobin earned this win by the sweat of his brow, including turning back a three-man rush. Ouch. Notably, the tying goal was actually an own goal off a Hurricane’s skate. The Boston Globe
  • Dr. Khu modestly attributed his success to his familiarity with his former Carolina teammates’ shot tendencies. WEEI
  • Riley Nash played his first game against his old team, in a role for the Bruins that has been a bit bigger than anticipated. Boston Herald
  • They don’t ask how... just how many. The David Krejci line was playing musical left wingers again, but the real issue may stem from a lack of synch between the centerman and David Backes. The Boston Globe
  • As the Bruins soldier on without Zdeno Chara, all their meager scoring is (statistically speaking) coming from either the Patrice Bergeron line, on the Power Play, or from Dominic Moore. WEEI
  • A barrage of shots have yielded few goals for Torey Krug. The Boston Globe
  • Yeah, the Bruins won. But there are MORE IMPORTANT THINGS! Time to get David Pastrnak in the All-Star Game- here’s how. Days Of Y’Orr
  • Late breaking news! Anton Blidh has been recalled from Providence... Bruins NHL ...he is on the ice with the fourth line, and Bergeron is not at practice today. @AmalieBenjamin

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Pack Your... Bags. These NHLers are the most likely to be moved. One is a Bruin, another is from the Nutmeg State. The Score
  • The Islanders stunned the Capitals with a late game, three-goal-in-four-and-a-half-minute barrage. WOW! Jaroslav Halak got the shutout. Yahoo Sports
  • One Minnesota high school goalie tried to keep his team in a game despite losing 12-0. But he at least set a new state record, which is nice. Bar Down
  • Former Bruins backup goalie Chad Johnson has earned his success, and no one seems to begrudge it to him at all. (With video) Sportsnet
  • NHL backup goalies are big news this year, and can play a big role in a team’s success or failure. National Post
