The Bruins host the Stars tonight at 7:00PM on NESN.

  • The Stars have been on the road for a spell, and one certain former Bruin is suffering a scoring draught. Fox Sports
  • So, y’all got any more of that secondary scoring? Asking for a friend... Patriot Ledger
  • The Bruins can’t possibly hope to win solely on the backs of the Patrice Bergeron line, as good as they are. Boston Globe
  • Sticktaps to the Predators Pekka Rinne, who Finnished Saturday night with a shutout. Sadly, the officiating left a bit to be desired- repeatedly. Boston Herald
  • He earned the shutout and he received one big, happy present from his employers in Smashville. Rinne has now done this twice- apparently it is how he rolls. MassLive
  • Frustrated by a phantom call, Brad Marchand doubled down. Then the stripes followed suit. WEEI
  • Three takeaways from the game include that Jaroslav Halak was up to the task and Brad Marchand is still reaping the benefits (?) of his reputation. Bruins Daily
  • Bruce Cassidy and Steven Kampfer go waaaay back, and the former is impressed by how the latter has upped his game. Bonus- an update on Charlie McAvoy. Boston Herald
  • Meanwhile, the weekend didn’t go much better for the AHL Bruins. Providence Bruins
  • Bobby Orr reminisced in his new book Bobby: My Story in Pictures, and his small-town roots and grounded character are still evident. His perspective on the pushiness of hockey parents is uncharacterstically blunt. Globe and Mail
  • Look who is perched atop the NHL Leaderboard in goalie statistics? NHL

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • In news of former Bruins: The Kings have fired John Stevens. They did snap up former Bruin Marco Sturm to fill the assistant coach position left open by the promotion of Stevens’ successor, Willie Desjardins. Boston Globe Cageface Chris Kelly has now joined Raptor Rich Peverley and Gregory Campbell professionally in player development, Kelly now for the Ottawa Senators. (Video, 4:25) Sportsnet
  • Wrap your tongues around the PROPER way to say the names of famous NHLers in authentic Finnish pronunciation, complete with trills. (Skip to 8:47 mark for Tuukka Rask, with video) BarDown
  • Jalen Ramsey was in the stands in Smashville on Saturday, and has been chirping P.K. Subban. Might an NFL pro make the unusual jump to the NHL, with the help of Paul Bissonnette? Why not? Yahoo Entertainment
