Some strange goals blazed the trail for a 3-2 shootout loss at the TD Garden. It’s a double disappointment as it happened on Bobby Orr night. The Bruins were helped out by Gregory Campbell’s first goal of the season, as well by a score by Carl Soderberg. Here is reaction from the Boston Bruins themselves. (Boston Bruins)

In fairness to both sides, this is how the folks over in Saint Louis saw it go down. (St. Louis Blues)

The folks over at Bleacher Report have their breakdown on the Bruins overall performance as they hit the quarter mark of the 2013-14 season. They cap the teams highs and lows as the Black and Gold attempt to earn another Stanley Cup Final spot (Bleacher Report)

Comcast had an opportunity to sit down with another Bruins legend and current president of the organization, Cam Neely. In the interview, they chat with Neely and talk Tuukka. His character, his skill set, and how he fits into the community and organization. Tuukka was paid to big money to get him long-term and Neely spells out why is it was so easy for the franchise to make that decision. (Comcast)

For people playing fantasy league hockey, there is little doubt your team is vastly different then team you had at the start of the season. I’ve already had to play the IR merry-go-round with four separate players so far this season. Folks over at the NHL home site have been looking at the injuries and share their thoughts on a fantasy season that appears to be a back-up goaltenders paradise. (NHL)

With the one point in the shootout loss, the Boston Bruins are the first team in the Eastern Conference to eclipse thirty points. It’s a pity that eight teams in the Western Conference have already hit that milestone. What is going on in the East right now, and will this trend continue? At this pace, the Western Conference looks profoundly stronger than the larger and diluted East. (Yahoo)
