The Boston Bruins have locked up first in the East, and begin their last two game away stretch of the season. They’re heading in to Minnesota to take on the Wild tomorrow night. At the moment both Jarome Iginla and Kevan Miller are listed as ‘day to day’, so it’s not clear if they’ll suit up for the game. Check out the rest of the info on the mini road trip here.

The Minnesota Wild looks to be safe in their bid for a playoff run. Ilya Bryzgalov earned his second straight shutout in a 1-0 blanking of the Winnipeg Jets. With him being the hot hand in net, the Bruins will likely take him on in tomorrow night’s game. (Minnesota Wild)

The Providence Bruins have climbed out of their desperate situation with a couple of solid wins, including a 7-2 win over the Portland Pirates on Sunday. The P-Bruins now have a total of eighty-six points, and that’s good enough for the sixth seed in the East. (It’s a vast improvement for a team that was nearly on the outside looking in just a few weeks ago.)Here’s the most current playoff picture for the American Hockey League. (AHL)

Well, now the angry season ticket holders can find out where all that extra money is going. Charlie Jacobs announced a two-year, seventy million dollar overhaul to the twenty year old TD Garden. They plan of doubling the size of the proshop, renovating and adding retail and concession space, and give the Bruins’ bear cave a face lift. (NESN)

The team at Bleacher Report take a closer look at the Boston Bruins most recent acquisition, Andrej Meszaros. They give him a thorough once over, and wonder if the fans should be a little concerned about his game play. (Bleacher Report)

Finally, the team at Comcast take a look at Reilly Smith and wonder if he should remain in the second line, or is he really just a bottom six forward? (CSNNE)
