Are you looking forward to tomorrow night? The Post-Claude Julien Era Bruins host the Sharks tomorow night at 7:00PM on NESN.

  • Well, how did we get here? Kirk Luedeke reviews the principal parties whose decisions resulted in Claude Julien’s dismissal. This is a longer read, well worth your time. Scouting Post
  • Ten quick observations will get you up to speed on yesterday’s events. Claude Julien believed that the roster talent was insufficient, now watch Bruce Cassidy ramp up practice on a tired team to prove him wrong. Boston Globe
  • Notes from the Don Sweeney presser- Julien’s exit was a long time coming. Does this give Bruins management the cover to swallow yet another bad season while not mortgaging the future as they wait for the next wave of young (cheap) talent to emerge? WEEI
  • Take a closer look at the numbers, and see why firing Julien was a clear blunder. Fanrag Sports
  • This is what a Cassidy practice looked like yesterday. No more colored jerseys for lines. Boston Globe
  • Yes, the coaching issue had become a distraction, but team leaders were on board with their coach. Why NOW? WEEI
  • Anton Khudobin and Zane McIntyre have been swapped again, after the former was called up following the Providence Bruins win last night. WEEI
  • At least there is good news for Bruins prospects playing in the Beanpot Tournament. Bruins NHL

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • The Atlantic division is jammed with teams on the cusp, but with games in hand. Here’s how things stand at present. Boston Sports Pub
  • In the past ten years, the NHL has been a leader in North American professional sports. Well, at least in one sorry category. USAToday
  • It seemed like a good idea to a farmer in British Columbia to use his personal Zamboni to clear a local road of snowfall. Wrong! The Score
