Bruins Fall to Hurricanes, Get Swept in Season Series

The Bruins lost a tough game to the Hurricanes in Carolina 4-2 on Saturday night. Carolina responded to goals by Boston twice and added an empty net goal to seal the deal. The Hurricanes are having a down season, but were ready to play and were helped further by sloppy play by the Bruins. Two Bruins giveaways […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 4

We’re now a month into the hockey season, and the defending champs continue to disappoint. Toronto, Ottawa, Florida and Edmonton are all just a few examples of surprising teams early on. It’s still fairly crowded as far as playoff contenders go, though a few teams seem to be fading already. There’s still plenty of time […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 2

Another week has gone by, and more surprising teams are poking their heads in the race. While every has at least a point, only two remain perfect. Already, all but eight teams have been involved in shootouts. It’s been a rough start for both participants in last year’s Stanley Cup Finals. That means the field […]

Canes Storm Past Struggling B’s, 4-1

Fights are fantastic… but goals would be even better. Fists flew Tuesday night at TD Garden, with the Bruins racking up 70 penalty minutes on the night, the most since last February’s famously fight-filled feud with the Montreal Canadiens. The frustration level of the men wearing the spoked B has apparently bubbled over, and instead […]

Bruins Den: How About More Power Play Goals?

Week 2 of the Bruins’ season is now in the books and it wasn’t a great time along the way. Two weeks in the books and only two wins to show for it isn’t the way you want to start your Stanley Cup defense and, after last weeks 1-2-0 record, it’s beginning to be clear […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

The NHL season is underway. Boston has begun their title defense, and Winnipeg has ushered in their new team. And Philly and Pittsburgh have picked up where they left off last season, accumulating large amounts of points and leaving the rest of the Atlantic Division in their wake. Vancouver has been active, but doesn’t quite […]

Bruins Acquire D-Man Joe Corvo; Kaberle Signs With Carolina

Shortly after the Carolina Hurricanes closed a deal with former Boston Bruins’ defenseman Tomas Kaberle for 3 years/$12.75 million, the Bruins acquired the Hurricanes’ defesneman Joe Corvo in a trade, sending Carolina a 2012 fourth round pick. Corvo comes to Boston after having a career year with the ‘Canes, playing in all 82 games for the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 21

No more than 20 games remain for any team, so we’re in the final quartile of the season now. And this late, the top story continues to be the logjam out West between #4 and #11, if not further down. Even one more victory by the Predators (#9) would vault them up to #5. But […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 20

20 weeks done, almost 20 games left, and Philadelphia is still running away with the East. Vancouver is closer in the West to Detroit, but still has a comfortable lead, but is in danger of falling behind Philadelphia. The Dallas Stars, not too long ago atop the Pacific Division, are now in last place in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 19

The top two seeds in each conference (and Pittsburgh) are pretty safely nestled into their positions, but everything else is up for grabs, with one win being able to do pretty much anything. To that point, four Pacific teams are currently in the brackets, and the last is just a win away. We should all […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 18

With just two months left in the season, very little is known, or even in a good position, regarding which teams will end up where. The defending champs are in the #11 spot, and the once solid East bracket has now been tapped by a new team. And the Devils are now #13 in the […]

Bruins Hold Off Canes 3-2

Here in New England, we’re used to handling blizzards and “hurricanes.” For the Boston Bruins, they were able to score a pair of goals in the third period and weathered the storm the Carolina Hurricanes brought to the ice for the 3-2 victory. Daniel Paille scored his first goal of the season to put the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday February 1st

With the All Star hoopla behind them, the Boston Bruins (28-15-7) will travel south to meet up with All Stars Tim Thomas and Zdeno Chara in Raleigh, as they prepare to face All Stars Eric Staal, Cam Ward, Jeff Skinner, and the rest of the Carolina Hurricanes (25-19-6) this evening. Thomas and Chara were featured […]

Bruins Sweep Home-And-Home With Hurricanes

After the Bruins beat down the Hurricanes 7-0 on Monday night, the first in the home-and-home series, you had to wonder how Carolina would respond Tuesday night. As you might imagine, the Bruins didn’t score seven goals again, but they scored enough in a 3-2 victory. Tim Thomas was outstanding in net, especially in the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday January 18th

The Bruins (25-13-7) hit the road this evening, heading south to Raleigh to take on a familiar foe, the Carolina Hurricanes (22-17-6). It was just over 24 hours ago that the B’s beat down the ‘Canes at TD Garden, wrapping up a four-game homestand with a 7-0 trouncing of Carolina. There were all sorts of […]
