RAWR! The Bruins visit the Panthers tonight at 7:30PM on NESN.

  • Merry Christmas! David Pastrnak and Frank Vatrano are traveling with the team, and may play on this road trip. WEEI Tim Schaller and Noel Acciari may be eating popcorn when that occurs. The Boston Globe
  • Please, may their return mean MOAR GOALS!?!?!?!? Providence Journal
  • He may come from Sweden, where skilled hockey is king, but Anton Blidh has carved his niche by being naughty, not nice. Claude Julien has a soft spot for this kind of player. The Boston Globe
  • Rookies or veterans, the Bruins need to score more goals. ALL HANDS ON DECK. Winning at home would be a bonus. Boston Herald
  • A new Behind the B is up! Season 4 episode 6 Bruins NHL has Frank Vatrano scavenging stick wax, and being chirped by John-Michael Liles. Toy shopping offers a chance for some chirping. (Video, 21:36) Bruins NHL
  • This is the Bruins’ season in a nutshell -David Krejci’s lighthearted attempts at the bottle flip are followed by his toss of the bottle into a wastebasket in frustration. He misses. (Video, 0:30) Bruins NHL
  • Meanwhile, the Providence Bruins spanked the Utica Comets 3-1. Yesterday’s mystery Pee Wee was the winning goaltender, and his numbers are impressive. @KLuedeke29 The team returns to action in Albany post holiday break. Providence Bruins
