  • Despite some reservations about it, the new 3-on-3 format produced some energetic, entertaining play. The players seemed to enjoy it.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Assessing Zdeno Chara: His performance has dropped from the lofty heights to the now merely good. The change happened at one watershed point last season.[WEEI]
