Bruins Set to Announce Savard’s Seven-Year Extension

The Boston Bruins are expected to announce their recently completed signing of Marc Savard to a contract extension in the next few days. While official details are yet to be announced, the deal will reportedly keep the star center in Boston for seven years at cost of just over $28 million. However, because Savard is […]

Bruins Win Streak Ends As Brodeur Makes History

While the Boston Bruins were looking for their fifth consecutive win, Jamie Langenbrunner and Zach Parise of the New Jersey Devils were making sure no one stole the spotlight from goaltender Martin Brodeur. The two forwards netted goals in the shootout to hand the Bruins a 2-1 loss as Brodeur made history by surpassing Patrick […]

Milan Lucic Injured Again – Out for One Month

Just four games into his return from the injured reserve, Milan Lucic has found himself sidelined again. Instead of a broken finger, however, the culprit this time is a high ankle sprain, which will keep the left wing from playing for approximately one month. Lucic sustained the injury in the third period of Wednesday’s 2-1 […]

Bruins Hang On For 4-3 SO Victory Over Atlanta Thrashers

At times it was ugly. At times it was long. But overall, two points are two points and the Boston Bruins will take those however they can, even if it means being forced to a shootout, which is exactly what happened in Thursday night’s 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers. In front of an impressively […]

Is the Ice to Blame for Bruins’ Scoring Woes?

On Friday’s team practice at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, the Boston Bruins began to discuss a topic they felt had gone unaddressed for too long. The topic didn’t concern Phil Kessel’s departure to Toronto, nor did it have anything to do with the absences of Marc Savard and Milan Lucic. It also had nothing to […]

Florida Panthers Claw SO Win From Bruins

After winning their previous two games, the Boston Bruins were hoping to continue their winning streak on Thursday night against the Florida Panthers. Every Panther seemed fine with that, except for one: goaltender Tomas Vokoun. Vokoun posted his third shutout in four games as he stopped all 40 of Boston’s shots, 19 of which came […]

Bruins’ Scoring Comes Out of Hibernation in Win Over Sabres

It – it being a power play goal – was bound to happen sooner or later. Fortunately for the Boston Bruins (7-7-2) and their league-worst power play unit, it came before history was made. After going six games with out a power play goal (0-for-20), the B’s avoided a seven-game power play drought, which would […]

New Jersey Devils Condemn Bruins to 2-1 Loss

One has to wonder if the ups and downs will ever end for the Boston Bruins. Each of their wins has followed a loss and each of their losses has followed a win. Last night’s 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils didn’t change the pattern and, in fact, only served to highlight it further. […]

Restoring the Special Relationship: the Patriots’ Invasion of Wembley Stadium

Approximately thirty-four hundred miles and nearly two hundred and fifty years removed from the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s legendary ride, and the opening battle of the Revolutionary War, the irony is unmistakable. Not far from where King George III read the Declaration of Independence of the American colonies, Tom Brady was reading the blitzing […]

Marc Savard Out 4-6 Weeks With Broken Foot

Boston Bruins center and leading scorer (3-4-7 points) Marc Savard has been placed on the long-term injured reserve (LTIR) with a broken left foot and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli reported that Savard suffered the injury when a shot in a preseason practice hit his left skate. He played through […]

Bruins Make History Dealing For Forward Paille

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli made team history by sending a 2010 third-round draft pick and a conditional fourth-rounder in next year’s draft to the Buffalo Sabres for left wing Daniel Paille (pronounced: pie-YAY) in the first-ever trade between the Northeast Division opponents. Paille, a Welland, Ontario-native (and newlywed, Google has pointed out), comes […]

Chuck Kobasew Traded to Minnesota Wild For Prospects

Late Sunday evening, Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli traded right wing Chuck Kobasew to the Minnesota Wild for a 2011 second-round pick, the rights to Alexander Fallstrom, a fourth-round pick in this past summer’s draft, and 28-year-old forward Craig Weller. The trade, intended as a wake-up call to the Bruins, who have started the […]

Lucic Out With Broken Finger, Return Uncertain

UPDATE, 10/20/09: Lucic has surgery on broken finger, out 4-6 weeks. Boston Bruins left-winger Milan Lucic missed Saturday night’s 4-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes with what is believed to be a broken right index finger. His return to the bench is uncertain, but he is not expected to miss a significant amount of playing […]

Bruins Overcome by Avalanche Early, Unable to Dig Selves Out

After the Boston Bruins’ 4-3 shootout-come-from-behind victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday, a great deal of discussion was devoted to the momentum the team would carry into Monday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche and hopefully onward. Unfortunately for the B’s, the talk was all for naught as the Avs took away any momentum […]

Ducks Open Anaheim’s Sweep of Boston With 6-1 Thrashing of Bruins

Two-and-a-half hours before the Boston Red Sox took to the field to play the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the first game of the American League Division Series, Boston and Anaheim, thanks to a scheduling coincidence, were also facing-off on the ice. In what can now be called a predictive match of what was to […]
