BruinsCanadiens: 5 from the Third

By Joe Haggerty
CSNNE.comMONTREAL Here are five thoughts from the third period of the Bruins' 4-1 loss to the Canadiens.
1)Bruins showed a little more in the third period, but they clearly didnt show enough early in the game and paid for it.2)Wonder if Zdeno Chara will be suspended for his hit, which amounted to interference when its all said and done. Injuries do play a part in NHL decisions for suspensions, so Big No. 33 may be looking at one.3)Milan Lucic potted his 29th goal of the season, and that now makes the Bruins 21-2 in games that hes scored this year.4)Johnny Boychuk did not have a good game. At all. Tough one to swallow starting from the fight with Ryan White early in the contest.5)The Bruins have missed their chance to slay the Habs. You have to wonder if that will come back to haunt them.

Tuesday, Feb. 21: Leafs turning green

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while spring training is ramping up in a big way down in Florida.

*The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to wear their great, green, old school St. Pat’s sweaters around St. Patrick’s Day this season.

*Jonathan Quick is on the ice and participating in hockey activity, but isn’t quite ready to return for the Los Angeles Kings.

*This is one of the best things you’ll see today with Vladimir Tarasenko making the 11th birthday celebration for a special little girl.

*The Edmonton Oilers could potentially make a lot of moves at the NHL trade deadline, and unsurprisingly, there is quite the call for them to dump Benoit Pouliot after that bad contract they signed him to a couple of years ago.

*Lyle Richardson is predicting the biggest buyers at the 2017 NHL trade deadline and the Bruins are not among the nine teams listed.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) James Mirtle goes 1-on-1 with Toronto Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello a wide range of subjects for the Athletic up in Toronto.

*Tommy Wingels continues to fight for inclusion in hockey even as he’s gone from the San Jose Sharks to the Ottawa Senators this season.

*For something completely different: A perfect pool trick shot video will blow your mind and probably get a few pool tables ruined with people trying to recreate it.
