The theme of the day, after the Bruins took 5 points from games against the Stars, Blackhawks, and Kings, is “things are looking up.”

Barry Melrose has a video on ESPNBoston.com about the Bruins’ success against the Western Conference, highlighted by Monday’s win against the Kings.

If words are more your thing, Joe Haggerty explores the same subject in text on CSNNE.com. His weekly power rankings have the B’s as the 6th best team in the league.

For the Herald, Stephen Harris joins the list of impressed voices.

On Bruins Daily, Chris Chirichiello has yet more on the Bruins’ impressive recent form.

26 year-old rookie Kevan Miller signed a two-year contract extension worth $1.6 million. Fluto Shinzawa has all the details on Boston.com, and on Bruins Daily, Tim Rosenthal delves a bit deeper into Miller’s rise from the minors.

Zack Trotman, who made his second start of the season on Monday, has been sent back down to Providence. Zack Cox has the story on NESN.com.

Around the league: The Islanders put a damper on the Rangers’ recent hot run with a 5-3 win at Madison Square Garden last night. The Devils dropped a shocking 7 on the Blues, with former Bruin Jaromir Jagr scoring one of three first period goals for New Jersey. Out west, the Ducks suffered their first home regulation loss of the season to the Winnipeg Jets, 3-2. The Bruins’ next game is Saturday afternoon in Philly.
