For the first time since 1979, two Original Six teams will square off in the Stanley Cup Finals, with the Bruins taking on the Chicago Blackhawks. Both teams have been playing well this post season and are coming off dominating performances. The Boston Bruins swept the playoff favorites, the Pittsburgh Penguins, out of the Eastern […]

The Boston Bruins defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 at home Friday night to complete the sweep of the Penguins and advance to their second Stanley Cup Finals appearance in the last three years.

The Bruins took a commanding 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals, but were dealt a big blow with Gregory Campbell going down with a broken leg late in the second period while killing a penalty. Campbell will now miss the rest of the post season and while it is a huge loss for the […]
During Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, Gregory Campbell sacrificed his body during a penalty kill to stop Evgeni Malkin’s slap shot. After taking the full force of the slap shot, he was down on the ice for several seconds, but heroically brought himself to his feet, and with only one working now, finished […]
As if the Penguins getting beat down 6-1 on home ice was not already enough, the star player is now the butt-end of a slew of jokes. During Tuesday’s plane ride back to Boston, Bruins reporter Joey McDonald (@ESPNJoeyMac) tweeted, “Baby crying on flight. Pilot comes on and asks if it’s Sidney Crosby.” Bruins fans continue […]
Through two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, Tuukka Rask is finally getting the credit he deserves. Tuukka played well, but didn’t look fantastic against the Maple Leafs, but the Bruins team in general had their up and downs in the series. Rask came up with some big saves in game seven after letting up […]
It did not take long for the Bruins to put pressure on the Penguins in Game Two. In the first period, Brad Marchand scores his first goal of the postseason (19:32) off a break away when Sidney Crosby mishandled the puck in his own zone, putting the Bruins up 1-0. Following a Bruins power play, Brooks […]
Matt Cooke was handed a game misconduct and ejected from the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bruins after delivering a disorienting hit to Adam McQuaid. Cooke is most infamously remembered by Bruins fans for his basically career-ending hit on Marc Savard in 2010. What’s your opinion of the hit?
It is finally here. The matchup that Bruins fans, and NHL fans all over the country were hoping for when the season started. Coming into this shortened season, many people predicted the Penguins and the Bruins being the two best teams in the East, and a possible matchup to go to the Stanley Cup. After […]
After a tough loss in game 4, the Bruins bounced back with a victory in game 5 over the New York Rangers to win the series 4-1. The Bruins did not play particularly well in game four, but one positive thing that we saw was Tyler Seguin playing his best game of the postseason. Seguin, […]
After a mistake-filled game four, the Bruins hoped to finally close out the series Saturday evening. Game five featured the much anticipated return of Dennis Seidenberg in place of Dougie Hamilton. The Bruins did not allow many mistakes in the game, with Tuukka Rask making 28 saves, including a pad stop on a breakaway attempt by Ryan […]
The Bruins expected Henrik Lundqvist and the rest of the Rangers to bring their best in Game 3 at Madison Square Garden. Lundqvist was much better in net with 32 saves, allowing goals by Boychuck and Paille in the third period. This Rangers team looks defeated, going 0-9 on the power play. The Rangers’ lone […]
Before the Bruins beat the Maple Leafs 5-2 Monday night, a classy Maple Leafs fan made a fool of himself and his city, holding up a sign mocking Boston Strong, our city’s rallying cry after the Boston Marathon bombings: I think we have finally found the city to host the burial of Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Anyone […]
Here’s another must-watch video played before Wednesday’s Bruins game. Boston Strong.
