Now every team in the league knows an all-out first period effort will squash the Bruins. Will the Oilers follow this same strategy on Thursday?

  • Even if Brad Marchand’s near-goal HAD been good, the game was going nowhere for Boston. There was a fight, but it was COLIN Miller (ironically in defense of KEVAN Miller.) Fooled ya, stripes! The Boston Globe
  • At the end of the season, the Bruins will regret the points left on the ice last night. WEEI
  • Here are your takeaways from the tilt, if you are up for hearing more. Bruins Daily
  • It ended up being a flat game, with a lot at stake for coach Claude Julien. Boston Herald
  • David Pastrnak is in a slump, his blistering early scoring pace simply makes it look worse. The AHL’s goalie of the month? Zane McIntyre! The Boston Globe
  • The NHL released the names of the first third of The 100 Greatest Players, and there were several Bruins in this initial group. WEEI
