If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 23

We’re coming up on the last 10 games of the season, and it’s just as exciting as it ever was. If it weren’t for those games in hand, Philadelphia would be in trouble. Vancouver isn’t too far away from clinching that President’s Trophy. It’s still a logjam out West, and Anaheim is just one win […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 22

Only one month remains in the season, and there’s still a lot to be hashed out. The Devils are still making an improbable run. Five points separates #4 from #11 out west. Even the Flyers aren’t safe, with Boston and now Washington right behind them. One of the few sure things right now appears to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 21

No more than 20 games remain for any team, so we’re in the final quartile of the season now. And this late, the top story continues to be the logjam out West between #4 and #11, if not further down. Even one more victory by the Predators (#9) would vault them up to #5. But […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 19

The top two seeds in each conference (and Pittsburgh) are pretty safely nestled into their positions, but everything else is up for grabs, with one win being able to do pretty much anything. To that point, four Pacific teams are currently in the brackets, and the last is just a win away. We should all […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 18

With just two months left in the season, very little is known, or even in a good position, regarding which teams will end up where. The defending champs are in the #11 spot, and the once solid East bracket has now been tapped by a new team. And the Devils are now #13 in the […]

Bruins Beat & Beat Up Dallas, 6-3

In what was easily the most entertaining hockey game of the Bruins season thus far, Boston dropped the hammer on the Dallas Stars last night at the Garden, doubling up on Dallas, 6-3. The teams got the fireworks going early and often, with three fights in the first four seconds, and four bouts overall in […]

Video: Daniel Paille Hits Raymond Sawada In Head

In the Bruins wild 6-3 win over the Stars on Thursday night (that featured four fights in the first period…and three within the first four seconds), Daniel Paille delivered a vicious hit to Raymond Sawada’s head and received a match penalty. The Bruins killed the 5-minute power play, but that’s not the point: Paille’s hit […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
