Carl Soderberg is still recovering from his ankle injury that is holding him back from his 2013-14 NHL Debut. “Day to day is the best I can say right now. He’s skating, and when I say day to day it’s just, he’s getting closer to practicing with us and then I get the okay from the medical staff and we’ll move forward,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien.

Who will be this year’s most valuable player for the Boston Bruins? Will it be Chara’s power on the blueline, the accuracy of Bergeron, the surprising speed of Paille, or the chirping of Marchand? Check out the list of potential MVPs here (Bleacher Report)

On that note, I think there should be a hockey IQ test given before a person can vote for NESN’s 7th Player Award this year. In my opinion, Daniel Paille was robbed of an award he earned, and it was given a young and good looking player that just made a certain segment of the population (puck bunnies, you know who you are) swoon and giggle.

The San Jose Sharks utterly routed the New York Rangers 9-2 last night. Tomas Hertl showed the National Hockey League that he has the potential of being the next Alexander Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby. He scored four goals last night, the last one being jaw dropping good. If he doesn’t earn a NHL Star of the Week for this performance, then there is something wrong with the league.

It’s been a rough last few games for Tim Thomas and the Florida Panthers. They were simply schooled in a 7-0 pasting by the Saint Louis Blues. Thomas let in five goals before being chased out of the crease. Then Thomas let in two more against the Flyers, hurting himself on the later goal. The only possible good news in all this is that the Philadelphia Flyers finally got themselves some points. Could this be the end for the ex-Bruin who won us the Cup back in 2011? (Miami Herald)
