The Boston Bruins let another game slip through their fingers. With less than two minutes to play the Winnipeg Jets’ Evander Kane got a shot past Chad Johnson that had Winnipeg fans cheering and Bruins Nation having that “Here we go again.” feeling. The Bruins still got a point though. It brings them up to one hundred and fifteen points, and it’s their President’s Trophy to lose at this point. Here’s the shot that tied it up for the Jets (Winnipeg Jets)

Here is the post mortem from the Boston point of view. It’s a little strange when former Bruins fill out the slots for Stars of the Night. Michael Hutchinson (formerly of the Providence Bruins) took first Star, Chad Johnson took second, and Blake Wheeler ended with the third. (Boston Bruins)

Well, here’s a new one for everyone. Former Bruin (and current member of the Columbus Blue Jackets) Nathan Horton is now officially the first NHL player to earn a goal for a game that he wasn’t even playing in. This achievement comes from the March 10th game between the Columbus and the Dallas Stars when Stars forward (and fellow former Bruin) Rich Peverley suffered a cardiac event causing the game to be postponed until yesterday.

The Blue Jackets went on to win 3-1 and earn themselves a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. (NESN)

The word on the street is that the Toronto Maple Leafs has grabbed Brendan Shanahan from his office at the Department of Player Safety. The Leafs will be announcing Shanahan as president of the franchise, as well as head of hockey operations. (Bleacher Report)

Jeremy Jacobs will not buy the Buffalo Bills if it means selling the Boston Bruins. Cam Neely talked about that scenario on local radio and told Bruins Nation that there is no chance Jacobs will either sell or sign away the team. (OK, we’re mostly sort of happy about this.) (
