Seguin benched for missing team meeting

The Bruins played last night in Winnipeg and took a 2-1 loss and snapped a point streak that started at the end of October. Tyler Seguin was a healthy scratch prior to puck drop. That was a surprise to anyone outside of the Bruins organization. Jordan Caron skated in his place.

Bruins Don’t Make It Easy on Themselves, or Fans

He quickly interjected, “No! Don’t, ya–ya- can’t write about it.” Hmm. Admittedly, I don’t bleed black and gold (or is it yellow?) as much […]

Despite Good Performance, Bruins Fall to Rangers
