Three Steps To Get The Bruins Back Into The Playoffs

For the Boston Bruins, the current season has been a far cry from last season’s Eastern-Conference-winning effort and the expectations that accompanied such a feat. Winless at the TD Garden in 2010, the Bruins have lost eight in a row and ten of their last eleven, with that sole win coming in a shootout. The […]

Kings Top Bruins, Losing Streak Turns Historic

The Bruins put forth a decent effort Friday night but lost again, and on Saturday night they came the closest they’ve come to a win, but still managed to lose in a shootout to the Kings 3-2. Their current seven-game losing streak is the longest for the team since 1997, while their six straight home […]

Bruins Remaining Schedule By The Numbers

With 51 games in the 2009-10 season already in the books, you have to imagine coach Claude Julien envisioned a playoff picture that was a bit brighter than the one his team is faced with at this point. Just one year ago at this time, Julien’s Bruins were sitting pretty atop the Eastern Conference standings, […]

Bruins Turned Into Serfs By Kings

The Bruins had it then lost it, surrendering a two-goal lead in the third period and losing 4-3 in a shootout. The teams traded goals and fights in the 1st. Boston took command in the 2nd, while Los Angeles did the same in the 3rd. The Bruins could not recover and could not retain whatever […]

Julien Furious After Bruins Loss to Rangers

That honeymoon period from the incredible win on New Year’s Day in the Winter Classic…is already over, especially after the Bruins lost 3-2 to the Rangers on Monday night. Down by two goals in the third period, the Bruins mustered only five shots on goal. For the game, they went 0-3 on the power play, which they had […]

Boston Bruins Sign Veteran Left Wing Satan

On Saturday, the Boston Bruins signed veteran left winger Miroslav Satan to a one-year pro-rated contract that includes a no-movement clause worth $700,000, pending a physical examination. Satan, who was just named to the Slovakian Olympic team for the Vancouver Games in February, will only earn cost the Bruins $350,000 because the team’s season is […]

Winter Classic Destined To Be a Classic

Fenway Park was on the edge of its collective seat for the third annual Winter Classic. It was a close, tough match, but the Boston Bruins somehow clawed out a 2-1 victory at the end. The 1st period was nothing special, really. Some back and forth action, with a nice looking save or two on each […]

Bruins All-Decade Team: 2000′s

The first decade of the new millennium has been a pendulum for the National Hockey League: it has seen the disappointment of a lockout during the 2004-2005 season coupled with the high expectations of “the Next One,” Sidney Crosby. The Boston Bruins had the same swings, ranging from the excitement of a first-place finish in […]

Phil Kessel: Don’t Love Him, Don’t Hate Him, Don’t Boo Him

Zero goals. No assists. Plus/minus of -3. Those are not the stats any hockey player hopes to have on his game splits, especially when he’s returning to his former team’s rink. Unfortunately for Phil Kessel, that was his exact scoring line when he played against the Boston Bruins for the first time since being traded […]

Bruins Win Streak Ends As Brodeur Makes History

While the Boston Bruins were looking for their fifth consecutive win, Jamie Langenbrunner and Zach Parise of the New Jersey Devils were making sure no one stole the spotlight from goaltender Martin Brodeur. The two forwards netted goals in the shootout to hand the Bruins a 2-1 loss as Brodeur made history by surpassing Patrick […]
