Boston Bruins Playoff Hopes Remain Murky

The 2014-15 season has seen the Boston Bruins underperform and suffer through a myriad of injuries. These factors have resulted in a position that seemed unthinkable when the season began. If the playoffs started today, the Bruins would be right on the bubble and potentially watching from home. Much has been made of the rash […]

Bruins End Disappointing West Coast Trip on Positive Note

The Bruins played four road games in six nights this week, all on the west coast. They went   in the four games. The trip began with back to back games in Anaheim and Los Angeles against the Ducks and Kings, respectively. The Bruins lost a hard fought game to the Ducks, 3-2, and 2-0 to […]

Bruins Face Trying Times During Next Three Weeks

When Zdeno Chara was hurt it was assumed that the Bruins would have a tough time without him. They started off strong in his absence winning six out of seven games including a five game winning streak. However, the past two nights have been lackluster performances on the road against Toronto (6-1 loss) and Montreal […]

Bruins’ Seth Griffith Goal Video: Behind-The-Back & Between-The-Legs

Have you seen Bruins forward Seth Griffith’s goal against the New Jersey Devils Monday night? In just his fourth career goal, Griffith goes behind-the-back and between-the-legs to score and break a 2-2 tie:

So the Dalai Lama is a Bruins Fan

Okay, so maybe that statement isn’t entirely accurate. Something tells me rooting for the Boston Bruins doesn’t exactly fall along the Eightfold Path. But the Dalai Lama did speak at the TD Garden earlier on Saturday before the Bruins 7 PM game against the Ottawa Senators, and put on a Bruins cap to support the hometown […]

Why Six Weeks Off For Zdeno Chara Could Help the Bruins in the Long Haul

The Bruins received some bad news earlier this week as future Hall of Fame defensemen and team captain Zdeno Chara was declared out for 4-6 weeks with a Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) injury in his left knee. Since signing with the Bruins in 2006, Chara has only missed 15 games and has proven himself to […]

Seth Griffith Proving Worth for Bruins

Entering the 2014-15 season, one of the biggest question marks on the Bruins roster was who would play right wing on the Milan Lucic/ David Krejci line. Loui Eriksson and Matt Fraser were early candidates but through two weeks another player has emerged to fill that role: Seth Griffith. The 21 year old is five […]

Bruins Trade Johnny Boychuk to Islanders for Draft Picks

The Bruins have agreed to trade defenseman Johnny Boychuk to the Islanders for second-round picks in the 2015 and 2016 drafts and a 2015 third-round pick, according to Newsday. The reason for the deal was purely motivated by money, as the Bruins were right up against the salary cap (about $500,000 under). In the deal, […]

Chiarelli Acknowledges He May Not be Able to “Keep the Band Together”

Are you familiar and comfortable with the Boston Bruins roster? Well don’t get too comfortable because there may be some changes with familiar faces in the near future. General Manager Peter Chiarelli expressed some angst recently about his ability to keep the current team intact. The Bruins are currently very tight on cap space especially […]

Former Bruins Player Carol Vadnais Dies

Carol Vadnais, a six-time all-star who played more 1,000 career games, has died. He was 68. Vadnais played for the B’s from 1971-1976 and was a key cog on the B’s 1972 Stanley Cup-winning team.

Video: Tuukka Rask is More Invincible Than You Thought

Tuuka Rask can literally stop shots fired out of a cannon. When Zdeno Chara, owner of the NHL’s hardest slap shot, is on your team this is exactly the type of hyperbole that one could expect to hear about Rask. But after a charity game in Finland some Boston fan may actually claim this to […]

Bruins Sign Niklas Svedberg to back up Tuukka Rask

The Bruins have opted to sign goalie Niklas Svedberg and let Chad (don’t call me Ochocinco) Johnson test the free agent waters. Johnson served as the backup to Tuukka Rask for the majority of the 2013-14 season and posted an impressive 17-4-3 record. In his 27 appearances he managed two shutouts, a 2.10 goals against […]

Bruins, Sharks Discussing Marchand-Marleau Trade, Report Says

With the salary cap going up, major talent hitting Free Agency, and super star players demanding a trade, this off-season promises to be an interesting one. With rumors recently coming up, it seems as though Bruins’ GM Peter Chiarelli is already discussing major moves for the Black and Gold. According to Jimmy Murphy of XNSPorts, […]

Explanation or Excuse? Bruins Played Through Rash of Injuries

Maybe the Boston Bruins advancing to the Stanley Cup finals for the second straight year wasn’t such a guarantee after all. Or maybe that’s exactly what the Bruins want us to think. One day after getting unceremoniously ousted from the NHL playoffs by the Montreal Canadiens in a 3-1 Game 7 loss at home, the […]

Canadiens End Bruins’ Season with 3-1 Game 7 Victory

That’s all, folks. The Montreal Canadiens have ended the 2013-14 NHL season for the Boston Bruins, beating the B’s 3-1 in Game 7 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. After holding a 3-2 series lead, the Bruins couldn’t win either of the last two games to close out the series, getting trounced 4-0 in Montreal in Game 6 before […]
