Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Thursday March 10th

With so much Bruins (38-20-8) news happening off the ice over the last 48 hours or so, it’s hard to remember that the team still has plenty of work left to do on the ice, including tonight, when the B’s host the Buffalo Sabres (32-26-8) at TD Garden. So obviously, the focus since Tuesday night’s […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Tuesday March 8th

One of the best rivalries in the NHL heats up north of the border this evening, as the Bruins (38-19-8) travel to Montreal to take on the hated Canadiens (36-23-7). It was just 27 days ago when the B’s and Habs last met in a game many are still talking about. 182 penalty minutes, five […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Saturday March 5th

The Bruins (38-19-7) look to extend their season-long win streak to eight tonight, when they host the hated Matt Cooke and the Pittsburgh Penguins (37-21-8) at TD Garden. We already know that the Penguins will be shorthanded tonight, with their two stars, Sidney Crosby (concussion) and Evgeni Malkin (knee) sidelined long term with their injuries. […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Thursday March 3rd

It had to end some time, and unfortunately, that end came on Tuesday night in Ottawa. Now, the Bruins (37-19-7) return home to TD Garden from their season-long six-game road trip, to host the high-flying Tampa Bay Lightning (37-19-7) this evening. 6-0-0. Looks pretty nice, doesn’t it? That was the record the Bruins put up […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Oilers, Sunday February 27th

The Bruins (35-19-7) continue their trek across the Great White North this evening, lacing them up at Rexall Place to take on the lowly Edmonton Oilers (20-34-8). Boston is coming off a very impressive 3-1 victory last night over the league’s top team, the Vancouver Canucks. Hometown boy Milan Lucic proved to be the hero […]

Bruins Win Insane War Against Habs

I have never seen anything like that. There hasn’t been action that chaotic in Boston since the Royal Rumble 10 days prior. The final victory, 8-6, seemed more like something Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford will put up in a few months. These two teams are supposed to be built on defense, but they scored […]

Bruins Drop Wild One in Shootout

In a game that went back and forth more than Hamlet deciding whether or not to be, the Buffalo Sabres emerged with a 7-6, shootout win. In a battle of futility between some of the (supposedly) best goaltenders in the NHL, nobody could play defense very well, or at all. Andrew Ference started the scoring […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Ducks, Monday December 20th

The Bruins (17-10-4) find themselves in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference right now. Tonight, they’ll face off with the West’s current eighth seed, the Anaheim Ducks (17-15-4) at TD Garden. Both teams have 38 points, but the Ducks have played five more games than Boston so far this year. Boston has played pretty […]

Bruins Try Their Best to Lose, But Can’t Pull it Off

The Bruins went up 3-0, and then looked like there was a good chance they would lose; where have we heard that before? Instead, they allowed the Capitals to climb right back in the game, and the Caps had plenty of quality chances to tie and take the lead, but Boston emerged victorious 3-2. The […]

Habs Handle Bruins, 4-3

The Bruins were forced to play catch-up, almost from the first minute of action Thursday night in Montreal.  The B’s would never catch the Habs however, falling to the Canadiens, 4-3 at Bell Centre.  The win snapped a season-long three-game losing streak for Montreal, while the Bruins squandered their chance to tie the Canadiens atop […]

Carolina Power Play Shuts Out Bruins

Despite having the NHL’s best penalty kill, the Bruins allowed three power play goals to the lowly Carolina Hurricanes in a 3-0 home loss. Boston actually kept up a pretty good attack, but the Hurricanes patiently waited for chances to break away, which they capitalized on. Early on, Boston had many good chances, but Cam […]

Bruins Hold Off Late Rangers’ Push For the Win

On Wednesday, the New York Rangers struck first, but it was Boston who laughed last in a 3-2 victory in Madison Square Garden. The Bruins scored three goals in between New York’s scores, in a relatively tame game penalty-wise, to give Tim Thomas yet another win, this time over Henrik Lundqvist. Neither team did much […]

Bruins Keep Rolling, Slaughter Senators 4-0

This crop of Bruins is special, and they once again rallied behind Tim Thomas Saturday to take down the Ottawa Senators 4-0. And it didn’t take long to begin the delightful process of ripping the collective hearts out of everyone in Ottawa. The Senators did make a good save point-blank 3:28 in, but whatever. David […]

Bruins 2010-2011 Preview: Defensemen

When most people think of what went wrong with the Bruins last year, the biggest problem was that they were unable to score goals to win games. Even when they were up against the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 in the series, they were unable to keep the momentum and ended up dropping four straight games on […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 2

On Wednesday, we showed the first four things to watch for as the Bruins open camp. While the way the 2009-2010 Bruins season ended really stung, we are turning the page to a new era of Boston Bruins hockey. One way to get that started is with new talent, like Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. […]
