The Boston Bruins beat the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday but there’s still plenty of room for improvement as they get set to host Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.

An old Boston Bruins and Brad Marchand nemesis is headed to the KHL.

Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin surprised the local media with lunch on Wednesday.

That and more in the latest Boston Hockey Now Puck Links:

The Boston Bruins aren’t resting on their laurels but as my partner-in-crime, Joe Haggerty wrote in his latest BHN + column, there haven’t been many laurels to rest on so far this season. (BHN)

The Boston Bruins, and more specifically, Bruins winger Brad Marchand have a long, bitter history with winger Leo Komarov heading back to his days with the Toronto Maple Leafs. It appears that rivalry may be done, as Komarov has headed home to the KHL and his NHL career is in doubt. (NYI Hockey Now)

Alex Ovechkin has been delivering plenty of goals on the ice this season as he chases Wayne Gretzky for the all-time scoring title and on Wednesday, ‘Ovie’ was delivering pizza to the media. (Washington Hockey Now)

He showed plenty of promise but alas, Capitals rookie forward Hendrix Lapierre was sent back to the Acadie-Bathurst in the QMJHL and Patrice Bergeron’s former team. (Washington Hockey Now

Speaking of goals, with his two goals on Tuesday, Florida Panthers captain Sasha Barkov is now tied for the most goals in Panthers franchise history with Olli Jokinen. (Florida Hockey Now)
