Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Game 4

The Bruins will look to take a commanding 3-1 advantage in their opening round series against the Sabres tonight, hosting Buffalo at TD Garden for Game 4. Boston will aim at building from their huge Game 3 win, when with the help of a late Patrice Bergeron goal, the B’s took their first lead of […]

Bergeron Gets Game-Winner, Bruins Lead Series 2-1

Rub your eyes again. The sixth-seeded Boston Bruins are now two wins away from advancing to the second round. Something that seemed so improbable just weeks ago is now a reality. The Bruins are a good team…well at least they’re playing like it. In his 45,090,000th playoff game (well, really 154th), Mark Recchi did his […]

Chara, Ryder Score Twice to Lead Bruins in Game 2 Win

The Bruins found themselves down 2-0 in the first period with the Sabres continuing to press the issue in front of Tuukka Rask. On the other side of the ice stood Olympic hero Ryan Miller, one of the top men between the pipes in the NHL. Down 1-0 in the series, the Bruins were in […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Game 2

The Bruins will look to even the series before heading home to Boston this afternoon, as they aim to earn themselves a Game 2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena in a Saturday matinee skate. The B’s had plenty of chances to get ahead of Buffalo in the series in Thursday’s 2-1 loss […]

Bruins Fall to Sabres in Game 1, 2-1

It’s still anyone’s series, but the Bruins missed out on a golden opportunity to take an early series lead Thursday night in Buffalo. Instead, Olympic hero Ryan Miller stopped all but one of Boston’s 39 shots on the night, including 24 shots in the second period alone, en route to a 2-1 win in Game […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Game 1

We weren’t sure whether or not the Boston area would get to enjoy playoff hockey this spring, but after a healthy winning streak to round out the regular season, not only are the Bruins (39-30-13, 91 points) in the playoffs, they got themselves up into the sixth seed in the East. Now, instead of having […]

Boston Bruins-Buffalo Sabres Playoff Preview

After a full 82 games composed of highs & lows, injuries & late additions, and joy & (mostly) anger, the Boston Bruins managed to do what some felt was impossible at some points during the season: make the playoffs. Despite scoring the second-fewest goals in the entire league (206 to squeeze by the Calgary Flames’ […]

It’s almost playoff time, and two of our experts have ranked the end-of-season Power Rankings, along with choices for the biggest playoff upset.

Bruins Help Themselves in Playoff Push, Beat Sabres 3-1

Needing a win to help its playoff chances, the Boston Bruins hosted the Buffalo Sabres Thursday night. The Sabres gave the B’s a gift before the game even started, as they sat their All-Star and Olympian goalie Ryan Miller. Miller is 40-18-8 on the season so it’s a good thing that he wasn’t playing. Instead, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

Can you believe the season ends this Sunday, and you won’t see this article again until October? Can you believe the Capital have clinched the President’s Trophy, and when they did so, only one other team had even clinched a division? After Tuesday, the West is all wrapped up in terms of the elite eight, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

There’s less than two weeks left in the schedule, and we’re all getting super excited with the playoff picture starting to shape up. But still, there’s plenty that could change in a whim. Even with the Capitals clinching the East (and with two wins and six points over San Jose) and the magic number for […]

Olympians Miller and Thomas Duel, Sabres Prevail 3-2

I say that Sabres goalie Ryan Miller and Bruins goalie Tim Thomas dueled on Monday night at the TD Garden, but a more accurate statement would be to say that Miller dueled with an unusually energetic Bruins offense. The U.S. Olympian goaltender stopped 40 of 42 shots to lead the Sabres to the 3-2 win. […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Monday March 29th

The Bruins (34-28-12) will look to build on Saturday’s stomping of the Flames tonight when they finish up their brief three-game homestand against Northeast Division leaders, the Buffalo Sabres (41-23-10). Boston has actually had a good level of success against the Sabres this season, winning three of the four previous meetings. The B’s, still with […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 23

With about 10 games and less than three weeks left on the schedule, it’s getting desperate for many teams. There have been several surprises this season, especially the Coyotes, who were even in second place in the West Monday, tied with Chicago with 97 points.
