Bruins Fight Back, Beat Pens 7-4

Never thought I’d see the day. Bruins getting smashed in the mouth right and left, down two goals and somehow come back to win by three? Just doesn’t seem right. After being down by two goals heading into the third period, the Pittsburgh Penguins were tossing the Bruins around all over the ice (and into […]

Thomas Not Immortal, Bruins Still Win

It wasn’t the best defensive stand, but with Ryan Miller out with lower body issues, the Bruins sprung out like a trap door spider to claim a 5-2 victory in Buffalo. Boston wasted no time going to work on the power play. The only thing was, it was Buffalo’s power play. With Michael Ryder in […]

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: Forwards

When it comes to what will fuel the Bruins this season, look no further than the forwards. Regarded as one of the worst offensive teams in the league last year, the Bruins hope to find their way back into the elite group of offensive teams in the NHL. Two years ago, the Bruins had one […]

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. […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 1

Is it too soon to talk about the Bruins yet, or is the sting of last spring’s playoff collapse still too painful to overcome? Personally, as tough as it may be to do, I say we turn the page to the next chapter: the 2010-11 NHL season. The B’s are off and running this month […]

Seguin Pens Contract, Puts Bruins Over Salary Cap

Today the Bruins inked a deal with their top draft pick, Tyler Seguin, but the contract puts the Bruins over the salary cap. Who will the B’s get rid of to get back under the cap? The Bruins and their second-overall pick agreed to terms on a three-year contract that can be worth up to […]

Lots Bruin’: B’s Sign Recchi, Draft Seguin, Trade Sobotka, etc.

Hockey’s hot stove season has heated up and nowhere is it hotter than here in the Hub of Hockey. Highlighted by the NHL entry draft this past weekend and the selection of overall No. 2 pick Tyler Seguin, the Boston Bruins have put themselves in the center of it all, with moves being made, and […]

What the David Krejci Injury Really Means

Make no mistake about it – losing David Krejci for the season is devastating. It’s arguably a tougher loss than losing Marc Savard at the end of the season. After all, the Bruins had time to readjust to life without Savard before the playoffs and seemed to be cranking on all cylinders throughout the first […]

Flyers Flunk in Philly; B’s Take Game 3, 4-1

Behind 34 saves from the masterful performance of Tuukka Rask, the Boston Bruins have pushed the Philadelphia Flyers to the brink of elimination, after quieting the raucous Wachovia Center crowd with a 4-1 win in Game 3. Boston now enjoys a commanding 3-0 series lead and can close the Flyers out with just one more […]

Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot With Odd Win Over Hurricanes

The Bruins have a lot of trouble scoring goals on the power play, and it gets even worse at even strength. They continued to struggle in both departments during Saturday’s 4-2 win against the Hurricanes. When Matt Hunwick headed back to the penalty box to start the second period, he told teammates to kill the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday March 16th

Last stop: Raleigh, NC. It’s been a bumpy road for the Bruins (30-26-12), who make their seventh and final stop on their season-long road trip this evening, where tonight they will take on the resurgent Carolina Hurricanes (28-32-8). Don’t look now, but once the laughing stock of the league, the ‘Canes have rebounded in astounding […]

Bruins Fly Past Philly, 5-1

In what was definitely one of their most impressive games of the season, the Bruins were able to pile on the offense, racking up five goals against Eastern Conference-rival Philadelphia on Thursday evening, winning convincingly at the Wachovia Center, 5-1. The loss for the Flyers snapped a five-game home win streak, while the win for […]

Bruins Fall to Penguins, Savard Seriously Injured

The Bruins dropped a tough one to the defending champs in Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon (a 2-1 defeat), but a loss that may hurt their playoff chances even more occurred with less than six minutes to play. At that point, Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke came at Marc Savard with a high elbow hit to the head […]

Bruins De-Claw Panthers In Exciting Pre-Olympic Finale

For a while, it looked like the 10-game losing streak Bruins might be back, but they pulled out a fourth straight win, 3-2 in a shootout. They got off to an inauspicious start, when Derek Morris was called for hooking, giving Florida a power play 10 seconds in. The Bruins managed to kill it off, […]
