Leaving Washington with a point in their pockets, the Bruins host the Avalanche tonight at 7:00PM on NESN.

  • For those who gave up watching at the 3-0 point in the game, you missed a great little comeback. The Boston Globe
  • What’s the point of giving up with half a game left to be played? Who cares if it is the Capitals? The Bruins just kept coming. Boston Herald
  • The Bruins need goals to win, and lots are coming from David Pastrnak. Claude Julien pointedly preaches finishing off at the net and jumping on loose pucks. The Boston Globe
  • Take five... observations from the game. Anton Blidh earned a point, and came justhtisclose to his first NHL goal, but Dominic Moore did the wise thing by batting the dribbling puck home. Can’t be taking chances. WEEI
  • The Bruins mopped up their own mess, but the Department of Player Safety will have their work cut out for them- at three different points in the game there were hits that may merit scrutiny. Bruins Daily
  • The high point tonight for the Avalanche may be the return of Gabriel Landeskog (flu) to the lineup, they’re riding a six game losing streak- here’s a preview of tonight’s game. Mile High Hockey
  • Devan Dubnyk (who offered encouragement to Malcolm Subban) reached a rock-bottom point in his career and has since put it in his rear-view mirror. ESPN

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Shoulda waited for the trademark ruling before the big rollout, Vegas Not Golden Knights! (But wait, all may NOT be lost yet...) SBNation
  • Former Bruin Chris Kelly was just not in the mood to sit on the bench through overtime against the Sharks, apparently. @JeffViellette
  • Apple and the NHL... a match made in heaven? TSN
  • Answer: Nearly 75 percent. Question: How far have the numbers of NHL suspensions dropped compared to this point in the last three seasons? TSN
  • Comfort yourselves with these common lies we NHL fans cling to, including that our hometown announcer is NOT annoying. Sportsnet
