Tuukka Rask is quite frank when it comes to the matter of a shootout. In his opinion, it just plain sucks to lose. It hurts even more when it’s all your fault. See his opinions on shootouts, skill competitions, and what the NHL may do about expanding the overtime period. (NBC Sports)

It looks like Adam McQuaid will be a no-go for tomorrow’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. McQuaid has been listed as ‘day-to-day’ since going down awkwardly in the match against the Toronto Maple Leafs. So, it looks like Matt Bartkowski will get another chance to shine on the blueline, (CSNNE)

Members of the Boston Bruins are offering their hopes and respects to injured Tampa Bay Lightning player Steven Stamkos. Stamkos broke his leg during the second period in their game against the Bruins. (The Bruins won that game 3-0). Stamkos is one of those players that is an unofficial ambassador for the sport, and the Bruins would like to see him back on the ice as soon as possible. (Yahoo)

The loss of Steven Stamkos is not just damaging to the Tampa Bay Lightning, but to Team Canada in the Olympics. Our cohorts over at Fansided’s site for the Lightning take a look at what Team Canada is going to have to do to fill the massive hole left by Stamkos. (Bolts By The Bay)

Bruins enforcer Shawn Thornton sat down in the Comcast studio to talk about his favorite player he has ever played with, Malcolm Subban’s goalie fight, and the current Mar-shand/ Mar-chand name change. Thornton said he was “deflecting” over his lack of scores. (Comcast)

On the subject of deflecting over poor performance, the folks over at Puck Daddy have been taking a look at the personnel changes happening with the Buffalo Sabres. They think Pat Lafontaine might just want the Sabres need to snap themselves out of their disastrous opening to their season. (Puck Daddy)
