  • The Red wings have historically struggled against the Bruins, here's hoping tonight will be no exception. Fox Sports
  • And now a word from our opponent- their take on the matchup, and the projected lines an pairings. Winging It In Motown
  • Look for the Bruins to divvy up the goal tending assignments between Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin - the latter will likely face the Capitals upon the team's return to TD Garden tomorrow night. Ryan Spooner is doubtful for tonight. Boston Herald
  • The ghost of coaches past has come to visit the Bruins, as strong defensive play has emerged as one of the factors behind the team's recent success. Bonus- congratulations to Kevan Miller, who may miss tonight's game thanks to a blessed event. Patriot Ledger

  • Here's an interesting note on the Bruins' performance to date this season compared to the rest of the league. @MickColageo
  • Zach Senyshyn is steadily improving in Providence on a path that reminds Jamie Langenbrunner of Jake DeBrusk. Rinkside Rhode Island
