The Bruins host the Rangers for Rivalry Night tonight at 8PM.

  • Don't say "must win" in reference to tonight's game against the Rangers. Even if it pretty much is one.[BostonHerald]

  • The Bruins are loaded for bear, having brought AHL scoring ace Frank Vatrano along with all three goalies (Jeremy Smith is also up from Providence.)[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Vatrano is expected to bring offense. Against NHL opponents, he will need to demonstrate defensive responsibility as well.[WEEI]

  • Ice time is currently up for grabs, and although Tyler Randell has notably made the very most of his, he isn't the answer to the Bruins' scoring woes.[Hockeybuzz]

  • Whining with Wilbur... well, he has a point. The Bruins are up in the air again, backs against the wall, and about to head out on the road again.(Audio, 2:59)[]

  • Got playoff tickets? The Bruins have them on sale now.[Bruins.NHL]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Many Boston athletes jumped on the Twitter wagon early, have a look at the first Tweets of those pioneers. Zach Trotman was under the weather, Max Talbot was a Penguin![TheBostonGlobe]

  • Narrative! With plummeting ratings and no Canadian teams in the playoffs (thus far) Sportsnet will focus coverage on individual star players.[TheStar]

  • This Lithuanian goalie playing in Sweden is a real model... an acutal runway fashion model.[Sportsnet]

  • One especially wonderful neighbor was at one time the celebrity captain of the Penguins, and as a result was featured on a hockey card.[PuckJunk]

  • A hockey-themed wedding? Why not? (Don't we know those Bruins fans?)[BarDown]
