Manic Monday?
3:41 p.m.
There is lots of video up from practice. Go to bostonbruinstv.com and check it out.

11:01 a.m.
A little surprise considering the calibre of his play this month, but Maxime Sauve has been returned to juniors. Look for the release in a bit.

10:54 a.m.
One-on-one battle drills -- starting from center ice.

10:36 a.m.
It's Monday morning, for sure. And the following Bruins are on the ice: Ference, Stuart, Fata, Whitfield, Hamill, Morris, Krejci, Thornton, Begin, Regan, Thomas, Penner, Lucic, Savard, and Boychuk.

It's a very fast moving practice and Coach Julien is in good voice.

It looks like the Quebec City contingent was awarded a morning off.

10:31 p.m. a.m.
The B's are on the ice...

It occurs to me that having named this piece Manic Monday, I should probably make sure that today, is in fact, Monday.

Naoko Funayama had to think about it, too. But she says it is Monday, and I am not in a mood to argue.

9:02 a.m.

Wow did that alarm come quickly this morning.

I am in the Garden and just a few minutes from heading north to Wilmington for the club's 10:00 a.m. practice in Ristuccia Arena.

I'll be curious to see what tomorrow's lineup looks like after the cuts and fine play on Sunday.

BTW: Lost in the story of Tuukka Rask and Patrice Bergeron and their terrific play, rookie forward Jeff LoVecchio had a heck of a game against the Habs.

Two near misses in front of the Canadiens goal and a fight with one of the Kostitsyn brothers were highlights, but his strong forechecking and physical play probably turned some heads in the pressbox.

It looked like LoVecchio took exception to a hit by Kostitsyn that had the Canadiens forward check Jeff while he was in a vulnerable position. LoVecchio lost a whole year to injury, so you can understand his insisting on the fight.

LoVecchio said he had not had a fight since juniors, but he did just fine.

LoVecchio was also the Bruin whose check sent a Habs player flying into the glass by the Canadiens bench and sent the glass crashing down. That caused a significant delay as the workers in Le Colisee Pepsi put in the replacement.
