  • Notes from the B's end of the ice:
    • Practice notes. [CSNNE]
    • Many players have made it back from their concussion rehabs in time for the playoffs. Nathan Horton is not one of them ... [WashTimes]
    • ... and Milan Lucic is not fine with that ... [CSNNE]
    • ... as the team tries to muddle on through. [NESN]
    • Adam McQuaid remains out for at least today's game and Johnny Boychuk will play. [CSNNE]
    • In which the Bruins are mindful they must watch their P's and K's ... [CSNNE]
    • ... right after F&B brought us the X's and O's. [Japers' Rink]
    • What to do with Joe Corvo? Play him lots, is our suggestion. Then play him some more. [CSNNE, ESPN, SB Nation DC]
  • Braden Holtby is the Caps' great unknown ... [WashTimes, WaPo (and again), Rant Sports]

  • Oh noes! Scary Bruins! [RMNB]
  • Oh noes! Scary Capitals! [CSNW, KOL]
  • And hey, that regular season scorecard is a little bit of all right. [DSP]

  • Who you callin' a underdog?! Oh, right. [WashTimes]
  • Coach Karl Alzner breaks it down for you. [CSNW (video)]
  • Get good at hockey, get to do cool things. Boston College is good at hockey - and the not-signed-to-play-pro-puck members of the team have been invited to the Garden tonight. [Boston College Chronicle]
  • Finally, happy 57th birthday to Antero Lehtonen, happy 59th birthday to Mike Bloom, happy 62nd to Bob Girard, and wishing a very happy birthday indeed and best of luck to Roman Hamrlik as he turns 38 today.
