Bruins Win Double OT Thriller to Seize Series Lead

In what could easily be both the most agonizing and the most thrilling game of the season, the Boston Bruins took a 3-2 series lead over the hated Montreal Canadiens in 89:03 of hockey. Both teams had a very difficult time getting anything done, thanks to both goalies playing extremely hard. Boston had a slight […]

It’s Time to Panic: Bruins Drop Game 2 To Habs

Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara was a late scratch Saturday night against the Canadiens in Game 2 due to severe dehydration, and the B’s had an extremely difficult time adapting to life without their captain. The Canadiens, already armed with a 1-0 series lead, took advantage of the Chara-less B’s defense and scored two goals in […]

Bruins Drop Game 1 To Canadiens, 2-0

With the TD Garden feeling the most electric it had felt in decades before the game, the Bruins let loose a lackluster performance to fall to the  Montreal Canadiens 2-0 in their playoff opener Thursday night. Montreal Canadien Brian Gionta had a game of a lifetime by scoring the game’s only two goals, including one […]

Bruins Defeat Atlanta, Clinch Division

Boston only needed one point to clinch the division, but they got two, winning at home 3-2 against the Atlanta Thrashers. Boston got started quickly, tucking the puck in for a goal during a skirmish in front of Atlanta’s net 4:34 in. But Atlanta answered on the power play later in the period, after Tuukka […]

Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot With Win Over Flyers

Coming off a tough 1-0 loss to the Rangers, the Bruins were still in good shape. If they beat the Flyers on the second game of a back-to-back Sunday, they would clinch a playoff spot for the fourth straight year. Mission accomplished. After falling behind 1-0, the resilient Bruins scored two unanswered goals, capped off […]

Despite Good Performance, Bruins Fall to Rangers

The Bruins did pretty well defensively, but with a largely impotent offense, Boston fell to the New York Rangers 1-0. Tuukka Rask did well in goal, save for the one tip-in blemish. Just before, Michael Sauer of the Rangers, in the offensive zone, reached across the blue line to drag the puck towards him. Without […]

Bruins Don’t Even Try, Lose in Toronto

A couple of pockets of pressure didn’t do anything for the Bruins, who laid down for the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 5-2 loss north of the border. Tim Thomas made a couple of good saves about 6:15 in, and another with 12:36 remaining, but was beaten with 10:16 left in the 1st Period on […]

Bruins Drop Their Fourth Straight After Blowing Lead to Islanders, Lose 4-2

Winning streaks aren’t meant to last forever, but when they end, you certainly don’t expect to start on a losing streak. Unfortunately for the Boston Bruins, that’s exactly what’s happened as they dropped their fourth straight game after posting a seven-game winning streak, losing to the New York Islanders 4-2 on Long Island Friday night. […]

Penguins Win, But Bruins Salvage a Point

It was an exciting game, with Matt Cooke booed out of the building as expected, and the Penguins won 3-2 in OT after the Bruins tied it late. The game lived up to its billing right away, with no score in the 1st Period and both teams getting some great chances denied. In between a […]

Bruins Zap Lightning, Take Over 2nd In East

Just two weeks ago, the Bruins had probably their ugliest loss of the season: a 4-3 defeat against the lowly Maple Leafs that came on the heels of back-to-back losses to the Detroit Red Wings. It was clear then that they were probably not good enough to make a deep run in the playoffs. Then, […]

Sharks Shut Out Bruins 2-0

Despite an entertaining 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday, the Boston Bruins failed to keep their momentum going against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday afternoon at the TD Garden. The Bruins outshot the Sharks, 26-18, but lost, 2-0. “If you take that empty-net goal, they only had that one goal on the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Stars, Thursday February 3rd

The Bruins (29-15-7) return home to icy, slushy Boston tonight to host the Pacific Division leading Dallas Stars (30-16-5) at TD Garden. These two teams are in very similar positions in their respective conference standings right now. Both teams sit atop their divisions, both teams have 65 points in the standings through 51 games each, […]

Bruins Drop Wild One in Shootout

In a game that went back and forth more than Hamlet deciding whether or not to be, the Buffalo Sabres emerged with a 7-6, shootout win. In a battle of futility between some of the (supposedly) best goaltenders in the NHL, nobody could play defense very well, or at all. Andrew Ference started the scoring […]

Mark Stuart Out 4-6 Weeks

Boston Bruins’ defenseman Mark Stuart will miss four to six weeks with a broken fourth metacarpal joint in his right ring finger. Stuart suffered the injury during Tuesday night‘s contest against Buffalo. Stuart was examined by Dr. Matt Leibman at Newton Wellesley Hospital, and the diagnosis was confirmed by GM Peter Chiarelli. In the meantime, […]
