The Bruins tied yesterday’s game late only to ultimately lose to the Blackhawks , who scored twice on a double minor penalty. Next up? The Hurricanes tomorrow night at 7:00 PM on NESN.

  • It was ultimately a death by a thousand cuts with Brad Marchand unable to go at the last minute. Boston Globe
  • UNCLE! UNCLE! The Bruins have marched along following a mounting list of injuries, but they may finally have hit the wall. Fortunately, they are already well positioned to limp into the playoffs. WEEI
  • It was a bit of a letdown after six wins. There was some creative line juggling as Bruce Cassidy went with only eleven forwards. Boston Herald
  • The second of the home-and-home set was on a quick turnaround already, and was cut even shorter due to daylight savings. Bonus- the numbers indicate where Boston misses Patrice Bergeron most. Boston Globe
  • The Bruins’ penalty kill has suffered with all the absences. Bonus- Zdeno Chara is #33 in more ways than one following yesterday’s game. NESN
  • It was a pretty successful weekend for the Providence Bruins, as summarized here. Rinkside Rhode Island
  • Paul Postma and Ryan Fitzgerald hogged all the Providence scoring in Friday’s win over the Rochester Americans, Providence Journal while Saturday’s matinee against the Toronto Marlies did not go as well. ABC6
  • 2-2-3. Boston trails the Lightning by six points, and leads the Maple Leafs by seven. NHL

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Hooray for Frank Vatrano, who played big minutes and scored in his debut with the Panthers. See you on Wednesday! Sun-Sentinel
  • Ryan Spooner is finding success with the Rangers, and knows exactly what he DOESN’T want this summer. New York Post
  • Brought to you from Minnesota in Flow Motion, enjoy this year’s ALL HOCKEY HAIR TEAM! (With video) BarDown
  • The Maple Leafs appeared to get a break against the (gasp) Penguins on Saturday night. The very vocal outrage is building about inconsistent goaltender interference calls. Sportsnet
  • Or maybe just shut up? The NHL GMs will already be discussing this issue, and would prefer that carping be kept out of the media in the meantime. Sportnet
  • Best in Show-down? The Kings’ four-footed friends raced at intermission on Saturday for charity. (With video) NHL
