Bruins Need to Look for Shawn Thornton’s Replacement

One of the pride points for the Boston Bruins over the last several years has been the depth of their offense and their ability to roll four lines every night.

Bruins Looking for Answers after Early Exit

Is the President’s Trophy cursed? No, that would be ridiculous.

2014 NHL Playoffs Preview: Bruins-Canadiens

Much of what made the Red Sox World Series win in 2004 so special is the legendary series against the Yankees. Similarly, a Bruins Cup run would seem incomplete without a match up against Montreal. Playing against a rival enhances all of the excitement, intensity, and emotions in the game and make victory that much sweeter. […]

How the NHL’s Western Conference Will be Won

All season long, there has been a lot of dialogue and discourse about how the Western Conference is a lot stronger than the East. Analysts heralded that the teams in the West were better, the game was faster, and the stats guys backed it up. As it stands now, seven of the top ten teams […]

Bruins Clinch Eastern Conference, Silence the Doubts

The Bruins clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a 5-2 victory over Philadelphia in this weekend’s matinee matchup.
