Bruins Explode in Third Period, Rally Past Jets

The Bruins came into their Tuesday night game with the Winnipeg Jets (20-16-5) looking to get back into the win column after a rough game and loss to the rival Vancouver Canucks on Saturday evening. They were without Brad Marchand, who received a controversial and highly publicized 5-game suspension for his hit on Sami Salo. […]

Wheelin’ and Dealin’: Bruins Ship Wheeler and Stuart to Atlanta

A busy Friday in the Bruins’ front office continues to take shape, as reports indicate GM Peter Chiarelli has made yet another trade, this time with the Atlanta Thrashers. In the deal, the Bruins send forward Blake Wheeler and defenseman Mark Stuart south to Atlanta in exchange for center Rich Peverley and defenseman Boris Valabik. […]

Bruins Trade for Tomas Kaberle

According to multiple reports, including the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, it appears the rumors that have been swirling for weeks might actually become a reality. Tomas Kaberle, very shortly, could be coming to Boston to join the Bruins’ blue line brigade. Several current Bruins have heard their names mentioned in rumors lately, with the league’s […]

Bruins Back on Track With 6-3 Win Over Islanders

Two streaks came to an end last night on Long Island, as the B’s snapped their longest losing streak of the season at three, beating the red hot New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, 6-3. They also ended New York’s season-long four-game win streak. The Boston win kicked off their six-game road trip in grand […]

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 […]

Bruins Fall to Thrashers in Shootout

Always expect the unexpected. For the Bruins and Tim Thomas, they were faced with the unlikely hero for the Atlanta Thrashers in Tim Stapleton. Stapleton had been called up early in the day and was the first player sent out for the Thrashers in the shootout. He slipped the puck past Thomas on his attempt […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Tuesday December 28th

Don’t look now, but the Boston Bruins (19-11-4) are in first place atop the Northeast Division! Well, tied with Montreal, but they have two games in hand on the Habs, so the B’s have the top spot technically to themselves. The same can be said for tonight’s opponent, with the Tampa Bay Lightning (21-10-5) also […]

Bruins Take Division After First Shootout Win

Boston never led in the game. They were 0-3 in shootouts on the season. But they were up against the lowly Panthers, and the Bruins finally were able to take control in a shootout and the Northeast Division by beating Florida 3-2 in said shootout. Both teams got double-digit shots on goal in each of […]

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 […]

Bruins Continue Slide; Lose to Thrashers 4-1

As winter looms, the Bruins remain cold. Sunday evening was another tough game for Boston, as they fell to the Atlanta Thrashers 4-1. With the loss, the Bruins are now 1-3-1 in their last five games. Blake Wheeler had the one lone goal for the Bruins, who finished off the month of November 6-6-2. The […]

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 Salvage Point From Improbable Comeback, But Fall 4-3 in Shootout

The highs and lows of this game were worlds apart, and in the end, the Kings finally finished off the Bruins 4-3 in a shootout, leaving the Bruins to settle for a single point. That isn’t too bad, considering the Kings led 3-0 at one point. The game started with obvious omens that it would […]

Thomas Outclasses Brodeur, Bruins Beat Devils

In a bit of a skid (losers of two straight overall and three straight at home), the Bruins needed to win on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils, even though it is just November. “I personally approached it as a must-win, and I think the team did, too,” Tim Thomas said. “We needed to […]
