  • Dustin Penner pokes fun at former Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas by joking about skipping out on the White House visit for the Cup champion Los Angeles Kings this afternoon. I knew I always liked that guy.
  • Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward tosses his earpiece over the glass and it nearly lands in a fan’s beer. They say you can’t get any closer to the action than the front row behind the glass, right?
  • Ray Shero gets a huge piece for the Pittsburgh Penguins in hulking defenseman Douglas Murray.
  • Calgary Flames management is staying incredibly quiet on their plans at the NHL trade deadline.
  • San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson still believes that the playoffs are their goal, according to my CSN Bay Area compadre Kevin Kurz.
  • The imploding Avalanche are sticking up for embattled coach Joe Sacco as they fade out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
  • Evgeni Malkin and Brenden Morrow will get a chance to play together when the red hot Penguins take the ice next. The rich just keep on getting richer in Pittsburgh as they’re willing to make bold moves.
  • For something completely different: solid appearance by Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage on the Daily Show with John Stewart.
