They’ll practice again tomorrow before heading to Providence on Friday. Last Friday morning, the Bruins were just three points ahead of the Sound Tigers. That’s eight points now.

St. Louis sent Tage Thompson down to San Antonio.
Slovenia came from 2-0 down to beat the U.S. in the men’s Olympic opener. Goal and an assist for Brian O’Neill. Slovakia was down 2-0 in the first 4:08 but came back to beat Russia 3-2. Tomas Marcinko got his name in the paper with a tripping penalty four minutes after Peter Ceresnak scored the game-winner.
The big USA-Canada women’s group-play game is tonight at 10:10 on NBCSN.
A neat piece from Atlas Obscura on hockey in Korea.
And RIP, Ben Agajanian.
