Danton Heinen clearly had twice as much fun as anyone last night.

NHL: Preseason-Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins
Last night was twice the fun for Danton Heinen

The Bruins dropped the Sharks 2-1. Next up- the Kings descend upon TD Garden Saturday evening at 7:00 PM ET on NESN.

  • Danton Heinen worked hard in Providence, and then made the most of his call-up to Boston. His first NHL goal was a short handed one, and his second was the game winner. Anton Khudobin bounced back from Saturday's loss to the Sabres. Patriot Ledger
  • Demonstrating the ability to battle like Tim Thomas is a point of pride for Khudobin, who also credited his teammates for helping him stop 36 of the 37 shots he faced. Boston Herald
  • A reliable Khudobin is good news for the Bruins. Hey- remember how we wanted a backup that would give Tuukka Rask some rest? WEEI
  • Lighten up, Sharks- if you're not gaming, you're not trying. Even so, both teams seemed to question the officiating last night. WEEI
  • It was a rough night for Sean Kuraly, who will learn and move on. Charlie McAvoy showed glimpses of what makes his game valuable. Bonus- period by period notes from the game. South Coast Today
  • The lone goal for the Sharks was from former Bruin Joe Thornton, because of course. It appropriately marked a milestone in his NHL career. Congratulations, Jumbo Joe! (With video) Yahoo Sports
  • As the Bruins keep looking south to shore up an injury reduced roster, Jordan Szwarz continues to work in Providence and bide his time. Rinkside Rhode Island
