Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Friday March 11th

With just 15 games left in their regular season, the Bruins (38-20-9) hope to right the ship tonight on Long Island, where they will kick off their four-game road trip at Nassau Coliseum against the New York Islanders (26-32-10). It’s been a long, bumpy road this week for the Black and Gold, coupling two division […]

Sabres Outlast Bruins in OT, 4-3

With all that’s going on off the ice in Bruinsland, it was hard to bring our focus back to the on-ice affairs of the team. Last night, the team’s focus seemed to be elsewhere also, as the B’s fell to the surging Buffalo Sabres, 4-3 in overtime, at the TD Garden. The B’s jumped out […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Thursday March 10th

With so much Bruins (38-20-8) news happening off the ice over the last 48 hours or so, it’s hard to remember that the team still has plenty of work left to do on the ice, including tonight, when the B’s host the Buffalo Sabres (32-26-8) at TD Garden. So obviously, the focus since Tuesday night’s […]

Criminal Investigation Launched Regarding Chara Hit

Yesterday, after conducting a conference call with Chara, the NHL’s disciplinary gurus deemed the hit unworthy of any further discipline to the Boston captain, which of course triggered immediate outrage from the Montreal faithful. Pacioretty himself offered up comments to TSN’s Bob McKenzie yesterday from his hospital bed, saying he was “upset and disgusted” that […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: Outfield Diamonds in the Rough

If you like a challenge, sifting through the dozens of major league outfielders and trying to project their 2011 fantasy value should be right up your alley. There are thinner positions in the big leagues heading into this season… shortstop and third base, namely… but I always find the outfield to be the toughest to […]

Chara Escapes Further Discipline from NHL; No Fine, No Suspension

In somewhat of a surprise move by the NHL today, the league has decided not to suspend or fine Bruins captain Zdeno Chara for the nasty hit on Montreal’s Max Pacioretty in last night’s 4-1 Canadiens win up at the Bell Centre. For the few of you who haven’t seen or heard about last night’s […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Tuesday March 8th

One of the best rivalries in the NHL heats up north of the border this evening, as the Bruins (38-19-8) travel to Montreal to take on the hated Canadiens (36-23-7). It was just 27 days ago when the B’s and Habs last met in a game many are still talking about. 182 penalty minutes, five […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Saturday March 5th

The Bruins (38-19-7) look to extend their season-long win streak to eight tonight, when they host the hated Matt Cooke and the Pittsburgh Penguins (37-21-8) at TD Garden. We already know that the Penguins will be shorthanded tonight, with their two stars, Sidney Crosby (concussion) and Evgeni Malkin (knee) sidelined long term with their injuries. […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: Infield Diamonds in the Rough

You should take Evan Longoria and Robinson Cano in the first round. You shouldn’t take Asdrubal Cabrera or David DeJesus in the first round. These are directions I shouldn’t have to waste your time with. However, I do have some helpful hints that you should waste your time with… because you know you’re just sitting […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Thursday March 3rd

It had to end some time, and unfortunately, that end came on Tuesday night in Ottawa. Now, the Bruins (37-19-7) return home to TD Garden from their season-long six-game road trip, to host the high-flying Tampa Bay Lightning (37-19-7) this evening. 6-0-0. Looks pretty nice, doesn’t it? That was the record the Bruins put up […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Tuesday March 1st

The Bruins (36-19-7), fresh off beating the Western Conference cellar dwellers in Edmonton Sunday night, wrap up their season-long, six-game road trip this evening as they head back to Canada’s capital to face off with the Eastern Conference’s cellar dwellers, the Ottawa Senators (21-32-9). This Ottawa Senators team a much different one than the Bruins […]

Bruins Make Two Small Deals At NHL Trade Deadline

The Bruins did their wheeling and dealing prior to yesterday’s swap meet, acquiring the trio of Chris Kelly (from Ottawa), Rich Peverley (from Atlanta), and Tomas Kaberle (Toronto). Since their arrivals, the B’s haven’t lost a game, currently riding a season-high five-game win streak, as they hope to end their road trip Tuesday night with […]

Bruins Edge Edmonton For Fifth Straight Win, 3-2

After a huge 3-1 victory in Vancouver Saturday night over the league-leading Canucks, I wasn’t going to be surprised if the Bruins laid an egg on Sunday night against the lowly Edmonton Oilers. But instead, after falling behind early in the game, Tuukka Rask and the Bruins’ defense rose to the occasion, coming back to […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Oilers, Sunday February 27th

The Bruins (35-19-7) continue their trek across the Great White North this evening, lacing them up at Rexall Place to take on the lowly Edmonton Oilers (20-34-8). Boston is coming off a very impressive 3-1 victory last night over the league’s top team, the Vancouver Canucks. Hometown boy Milan Lucic proved to be the hero […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canucks, Saturday February 26th

Take an afternoon nap today B’s fans, as the Bruins (34-19-7) travel west to Vancouver to take on the league’s best team, the Canucks (39-14-9) at a late night 10pm start this evening. The B’s will look to remain perfect on their current six-game road trip, having won in all three of their first stops […]
