The Bruins host the Detroit Octopus Tossers at 8:00PM tonight on NBCSN.

  • We’ll see Tuukka Rask tonight as the Bruins strive to return to their winning ways at TD Garden. Boston Globe
  • We won’t see Ryan Spooner , who was felled by a concussion at some point in the third period against the Senators. Instead, we’ll see Austin Czarnik , who was called up yesterday. WEEI
  • Twice more the Bruins will face Ottawa, and the concussion marks the first injury under Cassidy’s tenure as head coach. We’ll see if they can collect themselves and move on after what was a hard loss to swallow. Patriot Ledger
  • Is it too soon to panic and assume the Bruins have collapsed after the Senators loss? History would give fans pause to wonder. We’ll see. WEEI
  • Who knows what we’ll see from the Red Wings , who arrive tired from a loss to the Maple Leafs last night. Their current trend is downward, although the Bruins can’t be cavalier- other divisional and conference opponents are currently winning.Fox Sports
  • Meanwhile, in Bridgeport, the Providence Bruins didn’t get much past Jaroslav Halak and fell to the Sound Tigers. We’ll see if their luck improves on Saturday. Providence Journal
  • This take on “star defenceman” Adam McQuaid ‘s recent “horror wound” was posted from across the pond. We’ll see if it is funnier reading it with a British accent- also, consider the source. Daily Star

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Which NHL team’s fans are the most stalwart? Who cares! Bruins fans topped all but two other teams’ fan in this loyalty ranking. CBS Sports
  • Even being subjected to Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch isn’t enough to sour NHL General Managers on the momentum-killing Coach’s Challenges. WEEI In fact, don’t expect any rule changes to result from this GM meeting at all. TSN
  • Get a load of the Canadiens , who now have hit stride behind Carey Price and their new coach, Claude Julien. Sportsnet
  • Has The Bettman finally had enough with the agonizingly expensive struggle to keep the Coyotes in Glendale? Quebec is calling, and they have a new arena. Causeway Crowd
  • Jay Baruchel paused to talk about his new ‘Goon: Last of the Enforcers’ movie scheduled for release on St. Patrick’s day. The sequel is a sticktap and cautionary tale to all the old-school enforcers (several of whom have bit parts) even as their role is being snuffed out in the NHL. Sportsnet
