Bruins Den: The $5.25 Million Version and Other Trade Rumors

All 30 days of November are finally in the books and the Boston Bruins made history during all of them. With a record of 12-0-1, which included a 10-game winning streak, the Bruins (16-7-1, 33 points), completed the best month the league has seen since March 2008, when the San Jose Sharks went 13-0-2, and […]

Bruins Den: (Winning Streak) Back At One

Well, all good things – Thanksgiving vacation, lipsmacking leftovers, and winning streaks – must end, right? Fortunately, some things start right back up again (alright, vacation and leftovers have a few weeks until Christmas), like the Boston Bruins’ (14-7-1, 29 points) winning streak, which is back at one and looking to rise with this week’s […]

Bruins Den: Giving Thanks for Winning Streaks

Eight games and 21 days into the November, the Boston Bruins (11-7-0) are still yet to lose this month. On their current eight-game winning streak, which has seen them rocket from last place in the Eastern Conference to just two points out of the Northeast Division lead with two games in hand, the Bruins have […]

Bruins Den: B’s Offense Cited As Cause of Global Warming

Winter might be approaching, but the ice at the TD Garden is staying warm, as the red-hot Boston Bruins (8-7-0) are undefeated in November. They have strung together five consecutive victories, outscoring their opponents 30-10. They have scored at least five goals in five straight games for the first time since January 22-29, 1986 and […]

Video: Milan Lucic Not Suspended for Hit on Ryan Miller

There is no doubt that Milan Lucic’s hit (yes, it was a hit, not a collision) on Buffalo Sabres and Team USA goaltender was stupid, dangerous, avoidable and a suspendable penalty (and not just because Miller is a goalie). However, despite Miller’s resulting concussion, Lucic was not suspended Monday after speaking with league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan, […]

Bruins Den: Out of Hibernation, Into a Winning Streak

Well, well, well… what a week for the Bruins! It seems like Halloween spooked some offense into the B’s, who are now riding their first winning streak of the season as they begin a five-game homestand. With some of the best and worst teams of the league about to visit Boston, the conference-worst (second to […]

Bruins Den: Struggling B’s Hear a BOO!

Happy Halloween, Hub hockey fans! You need not look far for anything scary this year! Just check out the NHL standings, where you’ll find the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins (3-7-0, 6 points) dead last in the Eastern Conference and second worst in the league (thanks to the Columbus Blue Jackets, who at 2-9-1 […]

Bruins Den: Consistently Inconsistent (Complete With Clichés)

They’re up, they’re down, they’re left, they’re right – for all it’s worth the Boston Bruins this season are as inconsistent as Windows ME and as unpredictable as your girlfriend after you say you just want to be friends. At 3-5-0 and two games left in the month, it’s highly possible the Bruins will finish […]

Bruins Den: How About More Power Play Goals?

Week 2 of the Bruins’ season is now in the books and it wasn’t a great time along the way. Two weeks in the books and only two wins to show for it isn’t the way you want to start your Stanley Cup defense and, after last weeks 1-2-0 record, it’s beginning to be clear […]

Bruins Den: The Season Really Begins This Week

Welcome to the first edition of the weekly Boston Bruins capsule, where the previous week’s Bruins action will be recapped, the top storylines of the team highlighted, the coming week’s games previewed, and news from around the league (usually involving Matt Cooke and Roberto Luongo) provided, all so you can sound intelligent at the office […]

Patrice Bergeron Suffers Mild Concussion, Status Uncertain

The Philadelphia Flyers may not have made a spectacular comeback, but for the second year in a row, they have managed to take out a key Boston Bruin. Last year, it was David Krejci (dislocated wrist); this year, it’s Patrice Bergeron, who suffered what Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has deemed a “mild concussion” after a […]

Kenyans Sweep 2011 Boston Marathon, Men In New World Record

Kenyans Geoffrey Mutai and Caroline Kilel won the 2011 Boston Men’s and Women’s Marathons in 2:03:02 and 2:22:26, respectively. Mutai’s time set a new world record by nearly a minute, smashing Haile Gebrselasssie’s 2008 Berlin Marathon finish of 2:03:59 (though given that the Boston Marathon includes downhills and tail winds, the record is officially “unofficial”). […]

Bruins Drop Their Fourth Straight After Blowing Lead to Islanders, Lose 4-2

Winning streaks aren’t meant to last forever, but when they end, you certainly don’t expect to start on a losing streak. Unfortunately for the Boston Bruins, that’s exactly what’s happened as they dropped their fourth straight game after posting a seven-game winning streak, losing to the New York Islanders 4-2 on Long Island Friday night. […]

Bruins Fail to Take Any Points in Home-and-Home, Lose to Red Wings 4-2

Following the Boston Bruins’ embarrassing 6-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, it was pretty clear the B’s needed to score more and be scored on less. In Sunday’s away game of the weekend home-and-home series, Boston accomplished just that, but not to the degree they needed, losing 4-2. The Bruins started off strong with […]

Not So Fast! Sturm Trade To L.A. Kings On Hold, Possibly Dead

Despite previous reports that Boston Bruin forward Marco Sturm had been traded to the Los Angeles Kings for a conditional draft pick, Sturm remains in Boston as Bruin, continuing his rehabilitation for reconstructive knee surgery… for now at least. Just two days after celebrating his five-year anniversary with the Bruins, whom he joined as part […]
