Bruins Smother Flames With Nine Goals, Twelve Point-Scoring Players

As a young boy, I played on a recreation-league soccer team in Brookline, Mass. We weren’t very good, but I liked the team’s name: the Flames. I’m pretty sure we could’ve given the Boston Bruins a better game than the Calgary Flames gave them Thursday night at TD Garden. Patrice Bergeron and Nathan Horton each […]

Sputtering Bruins End Losing Streak in Columbus

It took a while to get on track in this game and the past few games, but the Boston Bruins finally started a new winning streak in Columbus, taking the win 5-3. Starting the game, it looked like Boston’s losing streak would be pushed to three games; just 5:46 in, the Blue Jackets took the […]

Triple-Double: Bruins Hang Six Goals on Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers survived the Boston Bruins’ first two-goal period Thursday night at the TD Garden. They couldn’t survive the second. Or the third. The Bruins scored twice in all three periods Thursday, powering them to a 6-3 victory over the once-streaking Oilers. The Bruins have now scored 24 goals in their last four games.

Bruins Mostly Flat in Loss in Montreal

Boston’s highly disappointing start to the season continued Saturday in Montreal, as they fell 4-2 to the hated Habs. The Bruins had a few moments, though for the most part they were rather lackluster. After some early energy, Boston got sloppy with the puck. After some assistance from the referees on a questionable holding call […]

Strong Power Play Helps Bruins Dominate Maple Leafs

When Shawn Thornton threw down with Toronto Maple Leaf right winger Colton Orr early in the Bruins’ game Thursday night at the TD Garden, he sent a clear message: No more listless hockey. We’re fighting back. And boy, did they ever. Four different Bruins posted three-point games, and two first-period power play goals kick-started a […]

2011 Bruins Preview: Defensemen

While no one can deny that all of the awards and accolades Bruins goalie Tim Thomas received after last season’s historic Stanley Cup run were all very well-deserved, I’m here to tell you that hey, the guy didn’t do it all on his own. Without the talents of the Bruins’ “blue line brigade,” the team […]

Blown Tires: 3 1st-Period Goals Chase Luongo from Game 6 as Bruins Force Game 7

Lord Stanley’s Cup came to Boston, and all the Vancouver Canucks needed to do to win it Monday night at the Garden was play the same punishing offense and fantastic goal-tending that had won them Game 5 last Friday. Only problem: no one told Roberto Luongo. Luongo gave up three easy goals within the first […]

Two-Goal Second Period Gives Thomas, Bruins 3-2 Lead In Eastern Conference Finals

The Tampa Bay Lightning held the Boston Bruins to just eight shots in the second period of Monday’s Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals at the TD Garden. The Bruins only needed two. Goals by Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand in the second period gave the Bruins the lead, and Tim Thomas stopped 33 […]

Video: Andrew Ference Not Suspended For Hit On Jeff Halpern

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will not be suspended by the league on Thursday, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told reporters on Thursday. Ference’s shoulder check on Montreal’s Jeff Halpern in the third period of the B’s epic Game 7 win sent the Hab to the lockerroom. You may remember that Ference was fined $2,500 earlier in […]

Bruins Win Double OT Thriller to Seize Series Lead

In what could easily be both the most agonizing and the most thrilling game of the season, the Boston Bruins took a 3-2 series lead over the hated Montreal Canadiens in 89:03 of hockey. Both teams had a very difficult time getting anything done, thanks to both goalies playing extremely hard. Boston had a slight […]

Video: Andrew Ference Fined $2,500 For Flipping Off Montreal

After scoring a goal in Game 4, Andrew Ference of the Boston Bruins told the fans in Montreal what he and us really think of them. As a result, the NHL fined him $2,500 for making an obscene gesture. Whatever. That’s just 1/900 (0.111…%) of his $2.25 million annual salary, which he makes in just […]

Bruins Drop Season Finale, Turn Focus to Montreal

In their final game of the regular season, the Bruins lost 3-2 to the Devils after taking some of the game off, but since 15 of the 16 seeds had already been wrapped up (including all eight East slots), they could afford to get the extra rest. New Jersey got on the board just 1:47 […]

Bruins Try to Shut Out Cancer at “Cuts for a Cause”

Shawn Thorton and 15 other Bruins took part in the fourth annual “Cuts for a Cause” Thursday at Ned Devines in Boston.  Winning bidders were able to shave their favorite Bruin’s head in front of a huge audience. Shawn Thorton, Dennis Seidenberg, Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, Zdeno Chara, Andrew Ference, Chris Kelly, Rich […]

Once More, Bruins Can’t Figure Out Maple Leafs

In trying to keep pace with Philadelphia and Washington, Boston instead couldn’t keep pace with Toronto, losing at home 4-3 in a shootout. The two teams were relatively even in the 1st Period, with the only goal coming on a wrist shot from Toronto’s Luke Schenn. Toronto also out-shot Boston by one in the period, […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Blue Jackets, Tuesday March 15th

The Bruins (38-21-9) look to put their season-long four-game winless streak behind them tonight at Nationwide Arena, as they get set to take on the always pesky Columbus Blue Jackets (32-27-9). Boston finds themselves still clinging to the top spot in the Northeast Division, but their lead over rival Montreal has dwindled to just two […]
