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 […]

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 […]

Milan Hejduk Hands Rask First Loss of Season

The Bruins won over 60 percent of their faceoffs Monday against the Colorado Avalanche at the TD Garden. One of the few they lost came back to haunt them. Avalanche right winger Milan Hejduk scored with eight minutes gone in the third after teammate Peter Mueller won a faceoff in the Bruins’ zone, and goalkeeper […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 16

Plenty of teams have already made it to 50 games, and it’s still pretty crowded. The East race isn’t an eight-team race any longer, and the West is even more heated towards the bottom. The #1 teams are comfortably leading their conferences, but not too much else is certain. Even the Devils are making a […]

Bruins Top Avalanche, Savard Sent Back to Boston After Head Injury

After a disappointing showing in the Boston Bruins’ 4-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday, the Bruins came out to play on Saturday afternoon against the Colorado Avalanche, defeating Colorado 6-2 at the Pepsi Center in Denver. Boston may have won on Saturday, but they did lose one thing in the match-up; Marc Savard […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Avalanche, Saturday January 22nd

The Bruins (26-14-7) head west to the Rockies today for a Saturday matinee at the Pepsi Center, to skate against Ray Bourque’s other former team, the Colorado Avalanche (24-17-6). The B’s are coming off a lazy loss to the Buffalo Thursday at home, falling 4-2 at the hands of Ryan Miller and the Sabres. Boston […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 15

There are still interesting talking points occurring in the world of hockey. The West’s #4-8 are separated by two points. Boston is up to #2 in the East. Washington will probably need to win their division to earn home-ice advantage, but they’re having trouble getting over that hump. Atlanta has some breathing room over Carolina, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 14

Each team is now officially at least halfway through the season. The Devils are still quite useless and the Canucks are still quite strong. Boston is still ahead of Montreal by two, but hasn’t always been consistent very much at all. Now, five divisions are being led by teams that didn’t win them last season. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 13

Another week in, and things are starting to shake up. Both #1s from last time were displaced, the West’s middle of the pack has been a revolving door for quite a while, and there is a tie for each top spot. Toronto is 4th worst in the league, so Boston will get a great draft […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 12

The season is almost half over, and the Devils are on pace for 46 points. Eight teams have already surpassed that mark. The Penguins and Red Wings have relatively comfortable leads for now, but have games out of hand to worry about. The Bruins are starting to pull away from the Canadiens, and still have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 11

There’s been plenty of action before the NHL’s Christmas break, and things are getting quite interesting. The top slots are being challenged, the West’s bottom slots are in such a predicament as well, and it’s a good thing for the Bruins that the Northeast Division is comparatively weak. And nearly half-way through the season, the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 10

10 Weeks are gone, and while the East has a clear field of eight, the West is still fighting amongst itself. And right now, the teams with the two most points are in the same Atlantic division. The Bruins completely missed their chance to overtake the Canadiens, and now sit in the lowly #8 as […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 8

After two months, we’re starting to see some separation in the East, but no such luck in the West. Between eight and nine in the East is five points, but one in the West; even last place in the Pacific Division (San Jose) is just one win away from poking their nose into the race. […]

Bruins Trade Hunwick for Cohen, Clear Cap Room for Savard

The Bruins have traded defensman Matt Hunwick to the Colorado Avalanche for former Boston University defenseman Colby Cohen in a salary dump. Why did they need to dump any salary? Well, with plans to activate Marc Savard in the works, GM Peter Chiarelli needed to trim some space to fit in their 33-year-old concussed center […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 7

Welcome to a special Thanksgiving week edition of the NHL’s “If the Playoffs…” And be sure to enjoy the Bruins’ matinee later Friday. This past week-and-a-game has included many fun moments, including a new top team in the league, as you’ve already noticed. Phoenix has charged forward, one point away from Detroit for the West’s […]
