It is hard to be tepid about Pierre McGuire.

Team Canada and Brad Marchand look unstoppable, and Bobby Orr has flown back to roost.

  • Bronze Bobby Orr has returned to TD Garden, but his perch is only temporary.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Brad Marchand will be eager to chirp Frank Vatrano . At the World Ice Hockey Championship, it was Team Canada 5 to Team USA 1, Marchand netted a shorty. Ouch.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Marchand and the Canadians look like world beaters. Vatrano and David Pastrnak each have 2 assists so far in the tournament.[CausewayCrowd]

  • Malcolm Subban will be wearing that dangling plastic neck protector on his mask going forward. He's been spending some quality time with Goalie Bob Essensa.[BostonHerald]

  • Learn some Swedish with Loui Eriksson , learn how badminton has helped Adam McQuaid , Patrice Bergeron takes questions, and meet Brandon Carlo . John Whitesides talks about summer recovery and conditining, and learn to tape a stick with Ryan Spooner. The new Bruins Academy episode is up! (Video, 20:45)[NHL]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Love him or hate him, you have got to admire earnest, energetic, and well-informed Pierre McGuire. Bonus: A day in the life of Bob McKenzie of TSN (with audio, 59:10)[SportsIllustrated] Counterpoint- ENOUGH! One fan takes it out on Pierre with a tattoo.[NovaCapsFan]

  • A bolt from the blue... even without Steven Stamkos, the Lightning have knocked out the Islanders to advance to the Eastern Conference Final.[SportsIllustrated]

  • Speed doesn't always translate into goal scoring. If you look at a rink like a highway, it is understandable why not. Bonus: A look at the upstart Hurricanes' 2006 cup win with Mark Recchi, and a case for keeping Brian Ferlin.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Sticktaps to the Winnipeg Jets , who have made a sizeable donation to help with relief in beleaguered Fort McMurray.[Jets.NHL]

  • So you think you want to cut fighting from the NHL, eh? It's about accountability, stupid![CrookedScoreboard]

  • Thanks, mom! And special belated thanks to that bunch of moms who are heroes to their hockey playing children.[HuntForTheCup]

  • And it was Nyquist for the win, if not the Red Wings, at the Kentucky Derby.[TheBostonGlobe]
