The Sabres host the Bruins this evening at 7:00PM.

  • Well, we can hope that they're tuckered out as a result... last night the Sabres stomped on the Montreal Canadiens, who collapsed in the third period (imagine that!) [MontrealGazette]

  • Fluto Shinzawa notes soberly that the Bruins were justthisclose to coming out of the last five games without a single point. It seems that each time a systematic problem is addressed, another flares up.[THeBostonGlobe]

  • It took so long to find David Krejci linemates that clicked that we can understand his hope that the Bruins won't sell one off in an effort to bolster the roster.[WEEI]

  • Other teams have not seemed to be able to overtake and surpass the Bruins in the standings, but heading into a game-heavy part of the schedule with older players will hamper the Bruins again. Might Dennis Wideman have been in the Bruins sights?[Hockeybuzz]

  • The younger Bruins are especially excited by the prospect of joining into a postseason run, though, and are embracing the busy schedule and the chance for a playoff berth.[PatriotLedger]

  • Remember the days of a strong Bruins third period? Good times![BostonHerald]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Take a look around the Atlantic Division the big decisions teams face as they assess their playoff chances and needs at trade deadline.[ESPN]

  • Never underestimate NHL enforcers, several of whom have had interesting forays into entertainment- Dave "Tiger" Williams made his mark with a cookbook.[TheHockeyNews]

  • Former Bruin Dennis Wideman was assessed a 20 game suspension for his "completely unintentional" cross-check that injured an official. Wideman will appeal.[TSN]

  • Mike Richards did what any NHLer would do when the NHL was not an option, he turned to his local beer league team to stay fit.[WashingtonPost]

  • Listen in behind the scenes as the designers hash out the details of the Maple Leafs new logo... NO, REALLY![DownGoesBrown]

  • That petition to remove Mike Milbury from the NBC broadcasts has caught fire, over 10,000 signatures have been collected.[AwfulAnnouncing]

  • Good news from Minnesota, as the Golden Gophers get Amanda "The Best Kessel" back for the remainder of their season.[HockeyWilderness]

  • Tim Hortons is in hot water over the possibility that their youth ball hockey sponsorship is actually advertising to children.[NationalPost]
