Tim Thomas won’t play hockey this year, but he won’t go away either. Here’s the latest gem on his Facebook page: “I stand with Chick-fil-A. Chick-fil-A is privately owned by the Cathy family. The company president, Dan Cathy, drew the wrath of gay rights advocates and supporters when he made recent statements that some have […]
Throughout the regular season and the playoffs, the Bruins third line was extremely productive. Chris Kelly established a new career high in goals, and if Rich Peverely didn’t miss 25 games due to injury, he would have been challenging for the team lead in scoring. Benoit Pouliot, a former top five pick, had his best […]
It appears Tim Thomas may already have played his final game for the Bruins. Despite having one year left on his contract, the Bruins goaltender will likely sit out the 2012-2013 season. When he expressed his feelings to Peter Chiarelli in May, Thomas conveyed that he has fatigue and would like to spend more time […]
I haven’t written a column in a while, so I figured I would chime in on a bunch of sports topics floating around the airwaves, newspapers and Twittersphere the past month. So let’s start with the… Celtics • Unfortunately, this team has more experience and guts than talent and playmakers to truly go the distance. […]
Injuries kept this line from building on a strong first season together. Several different players filled the vacant spot at right-wing left by Nathan Horton. If Horton is healthy heading into next season, this line will likely stay together and play at a high level. Report Cards: Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin | Lucic-Krejci-Horton Milan Lucic C+ Coming off […]
Just in case you were wondering, Bruins forward Tyler Seguin is single. How do I know? He said so on Twitter. Yes I am single — Tyler Seguin (@tylerseguin92) May 3, 2012
1. Misc: * The better team won * Bruins played at Washington’s pace and speed letting them dictate tempo and thus forcing their will upon the Bruins * Bruins needed to make this series a street fight and instead they shot pucks into Capitals shin pads * Ironic that a shot that was directed toward […]
The Bruins had the city of Boston on the edge of their seats all through Game 6 in Washington. The B’s repeatedly gave up their one-goal lead through three periods, but were ultimately victorious in overtime 4-3 thanks top the heroics of Tyler Seguin. Boston started off strong and broke young goaltender Braden Holtby less […]
Tim Thomas spent his off-day hanging out with a conservative/Libertarian group called Freedom Works, and showed off his support for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. How much did he enjoy himself there? Enough to take a photo with one of the supporters while holding up a Ron Paul bumper sticker…
Normally, I’m all for team bonding experiences, but maybe Andrew Ference and Zdeno Chara took it one step further during their day off on Wednesday. The two visited the National Geographic’s new Titanic exhibit…
Remember when Tim Thomas skipped the team’s visit to the White House? Well, that got some Washington Capitals fans thinking… Hell bent on figuring out how to score on Thomas, Washington fans have resorted to the ridiculous. But, hey, you have to admire their creativity. Caps fans are encouraged to wear Barack Obama masks:
When the Capitals two goaltenders Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth went down late in the season with injuries, most people thought the playoffs were practically over for them. Well, that hasn’t been the case, as 22-year-old Brandon Holtby has been as good as his predecessors, if not better. He stood on his head in Game […]
Remember last year’s ridiculously awesome playoff jacket? After each playoff win, the Bruin who played a big role in the victory that night would wear the jacket during post-game interviews. It was used as a symbol of team unity. This year, the team has turned to a Mr. T chain-link necklace.
In last year’s playoff run, the Bruins were 1-3 in Game 1′s. So, Thursday night’s playoff opener was anything but a guarantee for the Bruins against the 7th-seeded Capitals. Then, when the Bruins were unable to get any goals by young Caps goalie Braden Holtby in regulation, you had to wonder if they’d ever score. […]
It seems “The Bear & the Gang,” an 80s-style sitcom promo the Bruins released in March, has become quite popular. So popular, in fact, that the Bruins have released two new episodes!
