Didn't the Bruins look pretty sharp last night?

  • As one scoreless period melted into the next, hopes rose for a Bruins win. It was all over but the hugs just moments into overtime.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Five takeaways, including high praise for Jonas Gustavsson , who did, indeed, look like a monster- he saved a career high 42 shots for the shutout.[WEEI]

  • Joe Morrow returned to action in a credible performance, and one John-Michael Liles hit may receive further league scrutiny.[ScoutingPost]

  • It looks like Noel Acciari is a keeper, and despite some line juggling of late, Matt Beleskey and Loui Eriksson clearly look most comfortable each with a specific center man.[Hockeybuzz]

  • Whine, whine, whine. Claude Julien is probably used to it by now, and despite winning the most games as a Bruins coach, will likely hear it again.[WEEI]

  • The win puts the Bruins in a tie for first place in the division.[BostonHerald]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • After all the grousing, it appears that the NHL is going to beef up with more cameras to improve the quality of reviews.[TheScore]

  • It has been a tough year for Canadian NHL teams. How can they all be so bad this year?[TheGuardian]

  • Sick flow is an equal opportunity thing in hockey, as demonstrated here.[TheColorOfHockey]
