NHL Trade Deadline is Complete: Bruins Fail Miserably

The NHL’s 3 p.m. trade deadline came and went Wednesday afternoon, and unfortunately for Bruins fans, news of a major trade that would bring the team the offensive firepower they have lacked all season wouldn’t be heard all day long. Instead, teams from the top to the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings wheeled and […]

Trade Winds Blowing Through Boston: Morris, Bitz Sent Packing

Welcome to Deadline Day in the NHL! The Bruins, who made two small moves on Tuesday, acquiring a pair of young defenseman, have shipped another blue liner out of Beantown.

The Bruins (23-20-8) will get back to game action tonight in Buffalo when they take on the division-leading Sabres (31-14-7) at HSBC Arena.

The Bruins (23-17-8) will look to eliminate the bad taste left in their mouths after Monday’s 5-1 flop at the hands of the Senators, when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets (19-24-9) tonight at TD Garden.

Bruins Thrash Atlanta in Winter Classic Tune-Up

Another game, another Bruins win over the Thrashers. It seemed like just another night at the ice rink in the TD Garden, but considering the Bruins upcoming schedule, it was anything but that. It had to be hard for the players to concentrate considering the city’s excitement over the Winter Classic at Fenway Park on […]

Milan Lucic Injured Again – Out for One Month

Just four games into his return from the injured reserve, Milan Lucic has found himself sidelined again. Instead of a broken finger, however, the culprit this time is a high ankle sprain, which will keep the left wing from playing for approximately one month. Lucic sustained the injury in the third period of Wednesday’s 2-1 […]

Bruins’ Scoring Comes Out of Hibernation in Win Over Sabres

It – it being a power play goal – was bound to happen sooner or later. Fortunately for the Boston Bruins (7-7-2) and their league-worst power play unit, it came before history was made. After going six games with out a power play goal (0-for-20), the B’s avoided a seven-game power play drought, which would […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Predators, Wednesday 10-21

The Bruins will showcase their new-look roster Wednesday night at the TD Garden, hosting the lowly Nashville Predators. Boston GM Peter Chiarelli, in an effort to shake up his under-performing squad, sent winger Chuck Kobasew to Minnesota over the weekend, in exchange for minor leaguer Craig Waller, unsigned draft choice Alexander Fallstrom, and a draft […]

Bruins Rally From Deficit, Survive Islanders

After the second period was over, it seemed like the Bruins were headed to their fourth straight lopsided affair to start the season, after a 4-1 loss opening night, a 7-2 win over the Hurricanes last Saturday, and a 6-1 loss to the Ducks in their previous game. Against the Islanders Saturday night at the […]
