  • En fuego- the Patrice Bergeron / Brad Marchand / David Pastrnak line is the best in hockey right now. (Video, 1:06) TSN
  • Your NHL First Star of the Week? None other than St. Patrice. @NHL_PR. Here’s why. @NHL_PR
  • The marvel that is David Pastrnak could only have blossomed under Bruce Cassidy’s system. Don your 20-20 hindsight spectacles, it’s time to pillory Claude Julien for the Tyler Seguin and Phil Kessel trades. Metro
  • Wasn’t it nice to see Jake DeBrusk rewarded with a pair of goals against Detroit on Saturday? Bonus- he accomplished this while slotted in on his off-wing to accommodate line mate Joakim Nordstrom! HockeyBuzz
  • Likewise, speedy Anders Bjork notched his first of the season. Boston Herald
  • Other observations from the win over the Red Wings include some offensive contributions from Bruin blueliners as well as a hit parade from Noel Acciari. Boston Herald
  • In Providence yesterday, a blown lead ended in a PBruins’ 6-3 loss to the Thunderbirds. Patriot Ledger
  • Whip out those hindsight spectacles once more to revisit this interview with Harry Sinden from early in the 2010-11 season. Some of this seems rather timely. South Coast Today
