It’s good news for the Bruins and it could be a rough night for the Dallas Stars. The Bruins have declared that both forward Loui Eriksson and blueliner Johnny Boychuk will be in the line up tonight for the game. Both players have been missed in Boston as the B’s have dropped three of their last four games. (Boston Bruins)

On the Dallas side, the NHL site has a look at Tyler Seguin. Seguin says there will always be a part of him in Boston, but he’s ready to take on his old team at the TD Garden tonight. (NHL)

The Bruins fans have decided to boo Tyler Seguin everytime he touches the puck tonight. Honestly, I’m a little disappointed Bruins family. Tyler wanted to stay in Boston, and the trade was made by Chiarelli. This was nothing like the Phil Kessel trade, and it’s a little unfair to pile it on Seguin, regardless of what team he plays for now (Pro Hockey Talk)

I’m still a fan of the ‘Little Ball of Hate’. Brad Marchand has had several great seasons for the Bruins, but this year has been a year of bad luck, bad pucks, and just things not going right. Even Marchand says everything is going wrong. Check out his interview here. (WEEI)

With Marchand back on the second line, Reilly Smith (part of the Eriksson-Seguin trade) has gone back down to the third line. Smith came on strong early for Boston, and he’s tied for third in scoring for the Bruins. Smith is hoping that he can make things happen with new linemates Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg. (CSNNE)
