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 […]
Eight games and 21 days into the November, the Boston Bruins (11-7-0) are still yet to lose this month. On their current eight-game winning streak, which has seen them rocket from last place in the Eastern Conference to just two points out of the Northeast Division lead with two games in hand, the Bruins have […]
October was a weird month. A snowstorm ravaged the Northeast at the end of the month. The Red Sox somehow weren’t in the playoffs. The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins started the season 3-7-0. Then, the calendar turned to November. OK, it’s still a weird month. Temperatures are unseasonably warm. The Red Sox lost Jonathan […]
Boston just can’t be beaten lately. Not even close. On Saturday, their next victim was Buffalo. The Sabres lost 6-2, in a rough showing. It didn’t start that way, though. Boston had the majority of shots in the 1st, though it was Buffalo who struck first blood at 5:38 on a wrist shot from Thomas […]
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.
