Zdeno Chara Hat Trick Powers Bruins Past Hurricanes 7-0

Entering Monday’s matinee contest against the Hurricanes, just three Bruins defensemen have ever scored a hat trick in a game. Now, we can add Zdeno Chara’s name to that list. Chara scored three goals, joining Bobby Orr (who had a ridiculous nine career hat tricks), Ray Bourque, and Glen Wesley. “That’s pretty special company,” Chara […]

Carolina Power Play Shuts Out Bruins

Despite having the NHL’s best penalty kill, the Bruins allowed three power play goals to the lowly Carolina Hurricanes in a 3-0 home loss. Boston actually kept up a pretty good attack, but the Hurricanes patiently waited for chances to break away, which they capitalized on. Early on, Boston had many good chances, but Cam […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Friday November 26th

The Bruins (12-6-2) return home after a brief two-game jaunt through the Sunshine State to host the Carolina Hurricanes (9-12-2) at the TD Garden for a matinee game on Causeway Street. Boston rebounded from a very rough game in Tampa Monday with a come-from-behind effort Wednesday against the Panthers that earned them a 3-1 victory, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Tim Thomas has gone downhill fast, but so have the Penguins. With three games in hand, Boston can take the division if those games in hands are wins, and they keep pace with Washington otherwise. Or with just three points from those games, Boston can displace Montreal. Either way, they’ve got plenty of room to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 2

Another week in, and the Maple Leafs are going strong. The Blackhawks are back on top out West, though their three closest competitors all have three games in hand, down by three points. That’s 333, which when doubled, means the Devils are currently in last place in the entire NHL. They’re followed by Ottawa and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

Isn’t the first week great? It’s the only time of a year that we get to see things like the Maple Leafs as the best team in the league. And it’s the one time of the year when Marty Brodeur is still working out the kinks, and the Bruins, just like the rest of the […]

Lets Get Puck’d: NHL Eastern Conference Preview

The puck drops on yet another NHL hockey season this week, and with so much anticipation and expectation building about our local Bruins team, it felt like quite the long summer having to wait it out before the B’s get their chance at erasing the painfully embarrassing playoff exit last spring. Boston has retooled their […]

Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot With Odd Win Over Hurricanes

The Bruins have a lot of trouble scoring goals on the power play, and it gets even worse at even strength. They continued to struggle in both departments during Saturday’s 4-2 win against the Hurricanes. When Matt Hunwick headed back to the penalty box to start the second period, he told teammates to kill the […]

Bruins End Road Trip With Win Over Hurricanes

In a season-long, seven-game stretch on the road that went a long way in defining the season, the Bruins actually fared decent, especially considering all the drama with Marc Savard’s near-decapitation and the league’s support of its ridiculous rules instead of its own players. All that aside, the Bruins took the ice Tuesday night against […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday March 16th

Last stop: Raleigh, NC. It’s been a bumpy road for the Bruins (30-26-12), who make their seventh and final stop on their season-long road trip this evening, where tonight they will take on the resurgent Carolina Hurricanes (28-32-8). Don’t look now, but once the laughing stock of the league, the ‘Canes have rebounded in astounding […]

Hurricanes Storm Past Bruins, 5-1

It doesn’t get much uglier than this, Bruins fans. On an afternoon where the B’s looked to right the sinking ship, the ship sunk to a new low, as Boston fell to the Eastern Conference’s cellar dwellers, the Carolina Hurricanes, by a convincing score of 5-1. The loss marked the fifth straight for Boston, and […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Sunday 1/24

For the first time in a long time, the Bruins (23-19-8) wake up this morning to find themselves on the outside looking in on the Eastern Conference playoff picture. After Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Ottawa, coupled with wins from other teams in the East, Boston now finds themselves down to fourth in the Northeast Division, […]

2009-10 NHL Eastern Conference Preview: Southeast Division

The Southeast Division has to be considered the Washington’s division to lose this season, as their dominance should continue in the ’09-’10 season. Led by Alexander the Great, Washington is the clear class of the Southeast Division. Now, that doesn’t mean we won’t see other Southeast teams at the back of the playoff hunt, however. […]

Hurricanes Downgraded to Tropical Storm

The Bruins got back on track and did what they do best (getting vengeance in the process), with a convincing 7-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, metaphorically giving them a Bill Bellichick t-shirt in return for last season’s playoff loss. With visions of evil still in their heads, the Bruins started aggressively, scoring three times […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes Saturday 10-3

The Carolina Hurricanes return to the scene of the crime tonight at TD Garden, as they come back to the building where Scott Walker and the ‘Canes stole a Game 7 overtime victory from the top-seeded Bruins in the second round of last season’s playoffs. After the heated seven-game series last spring, these two squads […]
