Bruins Are Looking Good!

After being the laughing stock of the entire NHL, the Bruins are slowly but surely gaining credibility among the league; especially after their 2 convincing wins against Ottawa and Pittsburgh. As it stands, the Bruins are in the 6th place in the conference with 74 points and have 2 games in hand on almost every […]

NHL Trade Deadline: The Fallout

The Bruins stood pat in this trade deadline but the Marrian Hossa sweepstakes still took a surprising twist when the Pittsburgh Penguins made the best offer to land the high-impact forward… Noticeable trades: Atlanta traded forwards Marrian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis to Pittsburgh for prospect Angelo Esposito, forwards Colby Armstrong and Erik Christensen and a […]

Trade Deadline: Some Interesting Moves…

While the Bruins are quiet, the trade market opened a bit with some signings that will raise the ante regarding certain players.  - Dan Boyle was re-signed by Tampa Bay to a 6-year, $40 million contract which means that the price for D Brian Campbell (Buffalo Sabres), who failed to re-sign with his team, will increase a […]

Trade Deadline: All Quiet For the Bruins, So Far

With less than 24 hours to go, the Bruins remain quiet on the trade front. I wrote, a couple of days ago, that I want to see the Bruins sit tight on their roster and it seems that Peter Chiarelli will do just that. It’s a very good decision, in my opinion, since the team has shown lots of improvements this […]

Strike Three for Clemens

The plan was good and it almost worked…until Roger opened his mouth. On a day where everything could have worked perfectly, Roger Clemens simply crashed and burned. Let me set the record straight: after watching the whole process before the Congress, I’m convinced: Clemens is a liar. Bad, that was too bad to see one […]

Seller or Buyer?

Should the Bruins sell or buy? That’s the hottest topic among Bruins boards and forums these days. One thing is for sure, the team is in the playoffs race despite a lineup, which was depleted too many times by injuries. Buy? Sell? Status quo? Let’s see what are the pros and cons for each situation:

Bruins Humiliated 8-2

In a game where the two points were crucial, the Bruins decided to take a night off and were humiliated 8-2 in Montreal. You knew that this one would be ugly when, only 14 seconds in, the Habs scored a goal on an awful line change. The rest of the contest can be summed up […]

Habs down B’s 5-2; Goaltending Issue Starts to Take It’s Toll

After a punishing skating session, Bruins fans were enthusiastic about the matchup between their team and the long hated Habs. Despite their best efforts, the Bruins fell short; thanks to a brutal performance of Tim Thomas between the pipes. I must say that I was very frustrated by the result since the team worked very […]

Bruins Edge Devils; Extend their Winning Streak to 3

A strong first period, combined with a highlights-reel-save from Glen Metropolit (you read it right) helped the Bruins in their efforts to beat the Devils, last night, by the score of 4-3. I must say that Kevin Weeks, the goaltender for the Devils, wasn’t very good, which helped the B’s to win this game. The […]

Bruins Continue to Slide; Panic Moves to Follow?

After a very good start, the Bruins face their first real “challenge” this year, as they have to find a way to get out of a six-game losing streak as they lost, last night, 5-0 to the Thrashers. We can say that injuries are at play here, but there’s no way to explain why the […]

Running Scared

I thought that Christmas would be calm and sweet for the Bruins, but a column, written by Kevin Paul Dupont, suggesting that Phil Kessel could be on the trade market, fired up boards and forums. I think it’s time for me to weigh in. What can I say? A young, promising player, on the block, […]

Bruins Mid-Season Report

It’s Christmas and the Bruins just passed the 36 games benchmark which is almost the half-way point of the season. It’s time to evaluate the team on their defensive, offensive and goaltending performances. Defense: The most improved aspect of the team. Last year, the Bruins were incredibly good at creating turnovers in their own end; […]

Some quick notes…

- The Bruins recalled Matt Lashoff from Providence to fill the void left by Andrews Alberts injury. Lashoff is one of the top prospects of the organization. – Glenn Murray’s injury forced Claude Julien to shuffle his lines. Murray will be re-evaluate after Christmas. Expect Phil Kessel to take the spot on the first line. […]

Bruins Lose a Wild One

After trailing 4-0, the B’s worked hard to get back in the game and successfully grabbed one point by losing in OT. This game was a wild one and the goal-tending (Thomas, Coklin) was horrible from both sides. Crosby and Malkin had a good game (as expected) while Marco Sturm finally woke up from his […]

Better Than We Thought

I must admit, as a long time fan, that this Bruins team is very surprising. I looked last night at clips of the past season and wonder how this team could be so bad in their own end. Their 3rd period collapses were so predictable that it becomes a running gag among the fans. So […]
