CSNNE.comBOSTON Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas gets another start against one of the teams that bypassed him and wasnt interested in him last spring when it appeared that the All-Star goalie was on the trade block.Thomas looks to improve on his 25-5-6 record with the league-leading 1.82 goals against average, and is 10-1-3 in his last 14 games played for the Bruins. The Bs will also make an adjustment with Zach Hamill inserted into the lineup and centering Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder. Mark Stuart will be scratched for the sixth straight game with Adam McQuaid again in the lineup after rearranging the face of Brian Sutherby on Thursday night.Hamill will be making his season debut for the Bruins after playing in the final regular season game against the Washington Capitals last season.The forward lines:
Lucic-Krejci-Horton
Marchand-Bergeron-Recchi
Wheeler-Hamill-Ryder
Thornton-Campbell-Seguin

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.
