NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Boston Bruins
Anton Khudobin takes another crack at it
Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Lightning host the Bruins tonight at 7:30PM, as the Bruins buckle down following the all-Star break.

  • Redemption. Anton Khudobin will get another crack at what he and the Bruins hoped would be a happy return to the Boston. The Boston Globe
  • How was it exactly that Zdeno Chara was snubbed from the NHL Top 100 players list? WEEI
  • As much as we’d have liked to see Cam Neely on that list as well, there were reasons for his exclusuion, ones that were out of his control.
  • Kirk Luedeke has sketched out his ranking of the top Bruins amateur prospects, and eats a bit of crow on Trent Frederic. Pro scout tip- napkins are NOT just for jotting down phone numbers. Scouting Post
  • So it was a “personal feud” with Peter Chiarelli that kept Don Sweeney from reaping better gains in a nixed Dougie Hamilton trade to Edmonton? The Sweeney reign as GM has been disasterous, and here’s an itemized indictment. Fox Sports
  • No, not fresh blood- experience in the front office is specifically what the Bruins need. Just not a Harry Sinden revival, please! Boston Sports Desk
  • The Providence Bruins will need to finish no lower than third place in the AHL Atlantic for their best chances in the playoffs. Here’s where they stand midseason. The Hockey Writers
  • Enjoy a long read on Milt Schmidt, whose talents included teaching. What he taught WWII airmen while serving in Great Britain saved lives. He and his fellow “Kraut Line” mates returned to rejoin a much different NHL, as he continued to carve his career in pro hockey. The Globe and Mail

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Former Bruins in the news: Craig Cunningham was celebrated at the AHL All-Star Game. BarDown Chris Bourque is still hoping to return to the NHL, although he fully appreciates what he has going for him right now. CNSNews
  • Dateline- Minnesota, at the U.S. Pond Hockey Championship. A team from Tennesee has traveled to compete. Give a cheer for The Mighty Drunks. (With video) WKRN
