The Bruins just weren’t the team we love as they were taken out in a 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders. Thomas Vanek might have changed teams, but Vanek still seems to have our number. (AP)

The Bruins just seemed to be chock full of errors. They made simple mistakes that ended up hurting the Bruins throughout the game. Joe Haggerty takes a look at the mistakes the Bruins made in the loss on Long Island. (CSNNE)

The Bruins can at least be happy that Loui Eriksson is skating now for the Bruins in practice. The Bruins forward has been down since October 23rd since he took the head shot from John Scott. (Boston Bruins)

The NHL has decided not to pursue supplementary discipline for Ray Emery. The Philadelphia Flyers goaltender will not face a suspension for his charging of Braden Holtby in their 7-0 collapse. (Puck Daddy)

The guys at Bleacher Report ask if Milan Lucic is on track for having a banner year. Lucic has a great year to date, and we all hope that a great performance from Looch will help the team in another deep playoff run. (B/R)

While we’re not happy with how the Bruins have been doing, we can comfort ourselves knowing we’re not part of the Buffalo Sabres fan base. In another attempt to make sense of their team and season, they’ve sent Patrick Kaleta down to the AHL via waivers in order for him to ‘find his game’. How does this latest idea affect the team?
