  • The David Krejci/Ryan Spooner/Jake DeBrusk line got busy, got physical, and got the first goal. Boston Globe
  • Of course, not everyone liked that goal, or the result of the review. Oh, the humanity! Deadspin
  • St. Louis and their fans were left shaking their heads in bewilderment. St. Louis Post-Dispatch
  • David Backes also played a heavy game, and scored the final, empty-net goal against his former team. It was nice for the Bruins to not be on the receiving end of one of those. WEEI
  • Patrice Bergeron scored on the power play for the game winning goal, because that was a perfect ending for “Hockey Is For Everyone” night. CBS Boston
  • Here are your takeaways from the game, including a milestone for Tuukka Rask.
  • For those who feared the loss of Brad Marchand after the Ducks game, cheer up! The health of Kevan Miller may be in question, though. Patriot Ledger
  • So, how do you like the Bruins now, as oddmakers figure that they are serious contenders to win it all? The Score
  • 2-2-4. The Bruins stand at second in both the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference, and at fourth in the NHL overall. NHL
