'The Hub of Hockey is nothing if not the land of opportunity. On a night when the Bruins lost their No. 1 scorer, Joe Thornton, to a nasty case of ill temper, Rivers stepped up and was counted (two goals, four shots). The Bruins finished their six-game homestand with a 4-2 record, solidifying their position in the thick of the playoff hunt with a quarter of the season officially in the books.'
