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!
It was a statistically meaningless game, but that didn’t stop the Bruins from pulling out the stops, especially late, to build up some needed momentum going into the postseason. Everything started out so close; in fact each team had 12 shots in a scoreless 1st period. Boston started to pick things up later on, especially […]
Growing a playoff beard? That’s cool. Growing a beard for charity? Super cool. The Bruins Ice Girls? Hot. Combine it all? Kinda creepy:
In his first start as a Bruin, Anton Khudobin was brilliant with 44 saves on 45 shots. Khudobin’s first NHL start since January 18th 2011 makes you wonder why the B’s wasted money on signing a guy like Marty Turco. The Bruins opened up the game scoring their first goal at 10:36 of the first […]
Marty Turco didn’t have all that much work in the Bruins 6-3 win over the Islanders, stopping 19 out of 22 shots. Turco did stand tall at points in the game, making point-blank saves on multiple opportunities. That’s pretty much all you need from a backup goaltender, as he put his team in a position […]
The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins are back in the playoffs with a chance to defend their crown. Even though the Bruins were off on Friday night, the team clinched a playoff spot for the fifth straight season after the Buffalo Sabres lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-3. The B’s are six points up on […]
Entering Tuesday’s game, I didn’t know what to expect as the Bruins were playing a team that beat them 6-1 earlier in the month. In that game, the Bruins got some inconsistent goaltending play from both Marty Turco and Tim Thomas. Turco started the game and was shortly pulled in the first period. Tim Thomas came […]
Several Bruins players, including Brad Marchand and Zdeno Chara, and personalities, including Rene Rancourt and Jack Edwards, appeared in this ridiculous (and funny) new “show” released by the team on Monday… Watch a preview for “Bear & The Gang” (after the jump)…
The Boston Bruins were looking to get back on track late Saturday night on the west coast, and they managed exactly that with a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings. The team looked strong across the board for what seems like the first time in a while, as they snapped a four-game road losing […]
After celebrating their 3-2 shootout victory over Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, the Bruins decided to keep Shawn Thornton around for a little longer. Boston signed the 34-year old forward to a 2-year extension worth $1.1 million per year thus keeping him from becoming an urestricted free agent at the end of this season. Thornton has […]
The horrid losing streak is finally over thanks to a 3-2 shootout victory over Philadelphia, but Philly still nearly pulled out an impressive victory. And with Boston so used to giving up the first two goals lately, it was refreshing to actually see Boston get on the board first for a change, thanks to Chris […]
