A regulation win tonight at TD Garden would assure the Bruins a playoff berth, but will Lightning strike twice? Stay tuned- 7:00 PM on both NESN and NBCSN.
- The Bruins can’t afford a repeat of the last Bolts game. Doesn’t the return of recent focus to responsible defense look rather familiar? Boston Herald
- Bruce Cassidy was juggling lines on Sunday with a purpose. He seemed to really appreciate Sean Kuraly’s efforts, and voiced praise for Kevan Miller’s surprising snipe. Boston Globe
- Try not to get too excited, but we are likely to see Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson in a Bruins uniform soon. One legal roadblock stands in his way. WEEI
- Good things come in threes, and after landing collegians JFK and Charlie McAvoy, only Anders Bjork remains unsigned while his team finishes their season. Kirk Luedeke ponders how the trio will fit in. Scouting Post
Elsewhere around the rink:

- Early signs are that this year’s NHL draft will not offer a great selection of defensemen. NBCSports
