Daily Buzz: October 9, 2013

The Daily Buzz is a column devoted to the best Boston Bruins and NHL news and links around the world wide web. With that, here is the best that the internet has to offer – and today’s publishing schedule for Bruins Daily – for October 9, 2013.

Today on Bruins Daily

Your’s truly discusses the situation on the Bruins’ blue-line after Dennis Seidenberg signed his four-year contract extension last week.

In case you missed it

Anthony Travalgia examines how the Bruins special teams are getting the job done.

And here is yesterday’s edition of the Daily Buzz.

Bruins linkage

The Hockey Writers published their top 10 Bruins’ Twitter accounts, and it just so happens that Bruins Daily is on the list.

Jesse Connolly has a nice feature on Patrice Bergeron’s journey in the latest edition of the New England Hockey Journal.

CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty says the Bruins are taking advantage of the four days off with plenty of practice. I wonder if that sounds familiar to Allen Iverson.

League linkage

Nineteen year old Tomas Hertl scored four goals for the San Jose Sharks last night. I’m sure many fantasy hockey owners are planning to pick Hertl up on waivers after last night (Sharks.com).

In case you want to learn more about Hertl, David Pollack of The Mercury News has a Q&A with the Czech forward.

Tomorrow night’s opponent, the Colorado Avalanche, defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs last night to improve to 3-0 for the first time in franchise history. Not bad for first year coach Patrick Roy and company (Denver Post).

Tweets of interest

Hertl received plenty of hats for his four-goal night on Tuesday:

Torey Krug is rooting for a Red Sox-Tigers showdown in the ALCS. He’ll get his wish with a Tigers win over the A’s Thursday night in Oakland.

Stat of the day

11:12 – The amount of ice time Hertl had in the Sharks’ 9-2 win over the Rangers. That makes him the third player in league history to have four goals in less than 12 minutes of ice time. The others? Michael Nylander and Jussi Jokinen.

For something completely different…

The Huffington Post is posting a “Deathmatch” of the discontinued “Ben & Jerry’s” flavors they wish would come back. Personally, I’m partial to their Oatmeal Cookie Chunk flavor.
