While Loui Eriksson is still a little ways from coming back to play, it looks like Bruins’ blueliner Johnny Boychuk could be back up on the ice in time for the Dallas game tomorrow night. (Boston Bruins)

Speaking of the Dallas Stars, we’ll get to see Tyler Seguin for the first time in Boston since his trade on July 4th. With the current Bruins situation, the folks at Bleacher Report ponder if the Bruins already regret trading away Seguin. (Bleacher Report)

Keeping with a Dallas theme, Stars forward Valeri Nichushkin plowed into Ottawa’s Craig Anderson in the net last night. Nichushkin put his knee into Anderson’s head and it required Anderson to be taken off the ice via stretcher. More here from Yahoo. (Puck Daddy)

It’s official, Gary Bettman is once again making a fool of the league. Bettman had an opportunity to establish a little order after that crazy Flyers-Capitals line brawl. Bettman could have made an impact by imposing his own discretionary discipline for the fight, but choose not to. This is Yahoo’s opinion of this fiasco. (Yahoo)

This is the opinion of the team here. (Causeway Crowd)
