  • But is Pastrnak “a steal?” Well, duh, yeah! The Hockey News
  • His wasn’t the only slump-breaking goal- Kevan Miller opened up the scoring with his first of the season. Patriot Ledger
  • It wasn’t that the game was all that different from the ones before- a soft goal, some rookie miscues, lots of shots not finding the back of the net... but the Bruins found some extra in the tank late in the game. The Boston Globe
  • Tuukka Rask worked through an inauspicious start to clamp down hard in the late minutes of the game. As goes Rask, so go the Bruins. WEEI
  • Claude Julien paused to explain why the Bruins see a bright future for Colin Miller . Providence Journal
  • Here are the points to ponder from the game, including the fact that the Bruins are back in the playoff structure, with a caveat that other teams have several games in hand. Bruins Daily
