  • Former Bruins were factors in the game, Frank Vatrano for less than happy reasons. Nick Ritchie tried to engage Dadonov, but ended up barking with and ultimately fighting Riley Stillman. Bonus- goalie and game stats. Down The Frozen River
  • Bullet points from the game include Torey Krug making his case to stay in Boston. Bruins Daily
  • Maybe the best move for Jake DeBrusk is a bridge deal? Hockey247

NHL Standings:

  • The Bruins are atop the Atlantic Division NHL, the Eastern Conference NHL, and the NHL overall. The Blues have crept into 2nd place within 6 points, the Avalanche are in 3rd and Lightning dropped to 4th. (Standings have been pretty sticky, but links are NOT STATIC) NHL
  • David Pastrnak is tied with some Russian guy as the top NHL sniper, Brad Marchand is among the assists leaders, and both are among points leaders. Among defensemen, Torey Krug is remains with both points and assists leaders. On the netminding side, Tuukka Rask is top dog in GAA, and is among both the save percentage leaders and shutout leaders. Jaroslav Halak is still among the leaders in all but save percentage. (Links are NOT STATIC) NHL
