In Bruins news you can use:

  • Shipping up to Boston? Tonight’s scheduled Bruins Harbor Cruise has been rescheduled due to the inclement weather forecast. @NHLBruins
  • John Beecher had a leg up on the competition early. He had the advantage of size, and benefitted from working on fundamentals. WEEI
  • Weary Anton Blidh posted a greeting from, well, a place that just sounds funny with a Swedish accent. @NHLBruins
  • Initially leery about spending a season in the QMJHL, Jakub Lauko left with two trophies and some facility in English and French. Now he looks ahead to a shot at Providence’s (or maybe even Boston’s) roster. Original article (in Czech) NHL.cz Google translation NHL.cz
  • Connor Clifton was back home in New Jersey tutoring hockey campers. @HockeyEssential
  • Did you know? Here’s a quintet of fun facts about the Bruins. Last Word On Hockey
  • As a followup to yesterday’s post about the biggest game in each NHL franchise’s history, read about the the Sabres- because guess which team they played their biggest game against? Last Word on Hockey

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • The sweetheart deal between the NHL and CHL is certainly NOT in the best interests of young players- by the numbers, junior draftees lag behind their peers. The Province
  • Apparently, managing a franchise goalie’s workload is a concern for other NHL teams, like the Canadiens, for example. Sportsnet
  • This hockey team still gathers to meet with their coach, long after their 1960’s playing days are done. KARE11
