Good things come to those who wait. The Boston Bruins waited five games to get back Brad Marchand. They waited two games to get back Rich Peverley. And they waited 63 minutes Thursday night before finally solving the New Jersey Devils’ stout defense and even more stout goalie, Martin Brodeur. Once the waiting period ended, [...]
Brad Marchand has missed the last five games due to a suspension he received from the league for ducking a check against the Canucks. In those five games, the Bruins took six out of a possible ten points. The power play struggled during Marchand’s suspension, with the team going only 2-15 with Marchand in the [...]
Now that his suspension is drawing to a close soon, Brad Marchand has left Twitter just as quickly as he joined it. Hat tip to Days of Y’Orr for capturing a screenshot of Marchand’s final Tweet (for now): Yep, because he’s a bawss.
Brad Marchand is still serving his five-game suspension, so he has some time on his hands. The B’s winger took time to set up his Twitter account. Follow him: @Bmarch63
With Brad Marchand suspended for five games, that leaves an opportunity for Benoit Pouliot to play with Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin. Through Tuesday’s game against the Jets, Pouliot has eight goals and seven assists on the season, mostly playing on the third line with some power play time. The Bruins signed Pouliot as a [...]
House before Brad Marchand was actually suspended for his hit on Sami Salo, “The Province” inadvertently published an article about Marchand’s XXX-game suspension. Say what?
Bruins winger Brad Marchand was suspended for five games by the NHL on Monday for his low hit on Vancover’s Sami Salo during Saturday afternoon’s Stanley Cup rematch. “As the video shows, Marchand skates towards Salo along the boards,” Shanahan said in a video posted on the league’s website. “Rather than deliver a shoulder-to-shoulder check, [...]
The highly anticipated Stanley Cup rematch was everything we thought it would be as (arguably) the two best teams in the NHL faced off for the only time this season. The Canucks went to work on the power play today scoring all four goals on the man advantage and Boston lost a close one 4-3. Two game [...]
Bruins winger Brad Marchand has been named the NHL First Star of the Week on Monday, earning the honor after his first career hat trick last Friday in an 8-0 victory against the Florida Panthers. Marchand tallied six points in two games last week, including his five-point performance against the Panthers. The sophomore winger notched the game-winner in a 3-2 triumph at [...]
Since starting the season 3-7, the Bruins can’t really find a way to lose. They entered Friday night’s clash with the Panthers as winners of 19 of their last 22 games, including one memorable blemish: a 2-0 loss to Florida back on Dec. 8. You have to imagine that despite the recent success, the Bruins must [...]
Injuries to captain Zdeno Chara and Steven Kampfer were not a factor in tonight’s victory over Los Angeles. Tuukka Rask was perfect in net and got his first shutout of the season as the Bruins defeated the Kings 3-0. Boston went on the power play on the first shift of the game and didn’t score yet [...]
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 [...]
The Florida Panthers shut out the Bruins 2-0 Thursday night. Despite out-shooting the Panthers 40-30, the B’s couldn’t get one by Jose Theodore. The Panthers have been one of the surprise teams this season in the NHL. Coming into Thursday, the Panthers sat in third place in the Eastern Conference, also riding a two-game winning streak and [...]
Winnipeg made some early noise, but in the end, Boston came roaring back to defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2. Tim Thomas made a great 5-hole save early on during the first Winnipeg power play on a tough shot, but the Jets later came roaring through the neutral zone before Boston knew what hit them, resulting [...]
The Buffalo Sabres start fights. The Boston Bruins finish them. And they win games. Zdeno Chara‘s power play goal in the third period of Wednesday’s game in Buffalo completed a two-goal comeback, and Benoit Pouliot scored in the fifth round of the shootout to beat the Sabres, 4-3. The Bruins have now won 10 games [...]
