Of course another Boston Bruin managed to avoid suspension after a clear cheap-shot today. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli then criticized Ryan Miller, who was concussed on the play, for his comments about winger Milan Lucic following Saturday’s game.

Gordon Macintyre writes that Roberto Luongo has turned the corner. While his save percentage hasn’t peaked up above .900 yet, he’s had four quality starts (Calgary, Chicago, LA, New York) in his last six outings.
Cam Charron talks about Hodgson’s quality performance last night in today’s Noon Number over at Nucksmisconduct. Interesting to note how few chances at even-strength the Canucks generated last night.
