  • When we left off on Saturday, the Bruins had trounced the Flyers and Tuukka Rask had earned his first shutout of the season. Hey, when they're healthy, this team isn't half bad- who knew? WEEI

  • This season's fun theme? First goals. A bunch of youngsters have scored theirs recently, and that leaves just one question- what to do with the souvenir puck? Boston Herald
