Bruins Drop Game 1 To Canadiens, 2-0

With the TD Garden feeling the most electric it had felt in decades before the game, the Bruins let loose a lackluster performance to fall to the  Montreal Canadiens 2-0 in their playoff opener Thursday night. Montreal Canadien Brian Gionta had a game of a lifetime by scoring the game’s only two goals, including one […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Thursday March 24th

There’s a slightly important hockey game happening at the TD Garden this evening… you may have already heard about it.

It was a historic night at TD Garden Thursday night, but for all the wrong reasons. The bumbling Bruins found a way to blow a two-goal lead, then fell in the shootout to the Canadiens, 3-2. The loss marked the ninth in a row for the B’s, making this the longest losing streak for the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Friday 12-4

The Bruins (14-8-5) head north of the border this evening to the Bell Centre in Montreal to face off against the Canadiens (12-14-2).

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Thursday 11-5

The Bruins face off with their third straight “Original 6″ foe this evening, as they host division rival Montreal (7-8-0) at the TD Garden.
