Despite dropping a 3-2 shootout decision to the Avalanche on Wednesday night, the Bruins head into the All-Star break playing some of their best hockey of the season. In their last eight games, they have won six and lost another in a shootout. They have registered points in nine of their last ten games overall. […]
In what has become one of the cooler traditions in professional sports, the Winter Classic will make its second stop in New England since it began in 2008. This time, the Bruins will host the game at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. Going up against the Bruins will be the hated Montreal Canadiens.
The Bruins recalled rookie forward David Pastrnak from the Providence Bruins of the AHL Tuesday morning. Pastrnak had spent the previous few weeks shining at the World Juniors Tournament for the Czech Republic.

After scoring just three goals in his first twenty seven games in the 2014-15 season, Loui Eriksson was beginning to feel the heat in Boston. Fans and media alike were clamoring for more production from the centerpiece of the Tyler Seguin trade all while comparing the two-way Swedish forward to the sharpshooting second overall pick. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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:
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
