The Bruins beat the Penguins decisively last night at TD Garden.

  • Last night's effort leaves fans wondering what kind of team the Bruins really are. The season sweep of the Penguins is sweet payback for last year.[ScoutingPost]

  • Finally! The Bruins ignited offense from defense, and earned the win at home.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • In 5 brief bullet points, Tuukka Rask stopped 41 of 42 shots, which kept the Bruins in the game until they began to score. David Pastrnak set a Bruins milestone.[WEEI]

  • Other than receiving the fawning attentions of Pierre McGuire, Sidney Crosby suffered very frustrating evening. Swapping out Adam McQuaid for a struggling Kevan Miller alongside Zdeno Chara was key.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Two of the younger players played strong two-way games: Pastrnak notched two goals, while Landon Ferraro capitalized on a breakaway.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Against the team that drafted him, Joe Morrow continued to show the progress for which the Bruins have been hoping.[WEEI]

  • The Bruins bought some space in the standings last night, and survived a long penalty kill shift that surprisingly erupted into another Brad Marchand short-handed bid.[ProvidenceJournal]

  • So what is up with the Bruins organization and centermen? Having dealt away two of the NHL's best, how is it the Bruins have managed well enough to win a Stanley Cup?[TheHockeyNews]

  • Dig into this meditation on last season's personnel changes, the the Bruins' current season, and then wonder if we underestimated Don Sweeney all along.[DorchesterReporter]

  • Just for laughs, here's a trade possiblity for each member of the Bruins team. Which player will not be traded simply because his arrival was already "shocking enough for the hockey world?"[WEEI]

  • Do you miss our friends at Days of Y'Orr? they're back, in a podcast! (Audio, 44:16)[MommysLittleTrashcast]
