Friday Afternoon Update
It's a slow afternoon, thus far, in The Hub of Hockey and the fine folks near the BishCubicle are yelling out requests for 80's hits to close out the afternoon. JB

Quick update
The Bruins did not practice today, partially to allow Our Boys to tend to their wounds and relax, but at least part of the decision lay in prevention -- and keeping those members of the club who have not had the bug from members who have, while allowing those guys who still have it, to get it out of their systems.

Marc Savard: On playing a strong third period despite injury
"I thought our second was even and that in the third we outplayed them.  We had better chances, had pucks down low, and we hit three posts.  I hit two; one should have been in for sure. I credit the guys.  We have a lot of kids right now.  We have a lot of injuries right now, but I’m not using that as an excuse.  We have a lot of hurt bodies right now and guys are stepping up."

Wideman
Dennis Wideman looked sore, but fine after blocking a shot high in the torso during the latter moments of the game. A sore d-man spoke to the media after the game and was able to chuckle (a little) about the brave effort to stop a late flurry.

Dennis Wideman: On his injury at the end of the game…
"It got me in the ribs.  I’m fine it just knocked the wind out of me.  It was a shootout after that and I wasn’t going into that [laughs]. No reason to come back out. There is no padding in that area."

Youngsters
It's has been said many times in the last 24 hours or so, but Boston's youthful third line really performed quite well on Thursday night. Vladimir Sobotka, David Krejci and Pascal Pelletier did quite a bit to impress the Garden crowd -- and their coach.

Claude Julien: On his new Kid Line
"I thought they played well. For some reason I just had a good feeling they would work well together. I thought they would bring a lot of energy and they did just that. They worked hard, they worked together, and obviously I knew that they had played together ...they were on territory where they felt comfortable with each other. So with our lineup tonight that was the best bet, to reunite those guys and keep as many veterans on our top two lines as possible."
