Bruins Utterly Collapse Against New York

Still in the hunt for a top seed, Boston decided they didn’t want it, and dropped to the New York Rangers 5-3. That was after getting a 3-0 lead. Sound like a certain Game 7? In this case, Boston controlled the 1st period, winning the shot battle 19-5. They didn’t strike until late in the […]

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 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 […]

Kessel Powers Toronto Past Boston

Sometimes it just takes a couple of games to prove your worth. For Phil Kessel, it took him almost a year to put some points on the board against his former team. The last time Kessel registered a point against the Boston Bruins was on March 9, 2010, when he was credited for an assist. […]

The Bruins (30-15-7), fresh off their beatdown of the Stars Thursday night, will host old friend Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks (27-19-6) in a matinee affair at the Garden this afternoon.

Daniel Paille Suspended Four Games By NHL For Hit

Bruins forward Daniel Paille knew this was coming. One day after his blind-side, jaw-smacking hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada, Paille was suspended for four games by the NHL on Friday. “I felt that it was a clean hit. It’s too bad, I know that most of the guys in the room would disagree with […]

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.

Both teams sit atop their divisions, both teams have 65 points in the standings through 51 games each, […]

Bruins Hold Off Canes 3-2

Here in New England, we’re used to handling blizzards and “hurricanes.” For the Boston Bruins, they were able to score a pair of goals in the third period and weathered the storm the Carolina Hurricanes brought to the ice for the 3-2 victory. Daniel Paille scored his first goal of the season to put the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Monday January 3rd

Wrapping up their season-high five-game road trip, the Bruins (20-11-6) travel north of the border to take on Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (14-19-4) this evening at the Air Canada Centre. You’d think scoring six goals would be enough for a win… and more often than not, you’d be correct. But that wasn’t […]

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 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Ducks, Monday December 20th

The Bruins (17-10-4) find themselves in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference right now. Tonight, they’ll face off with the West’s current eighth seed, the Anaheim Ducks (17-15-4) at TD Garden. Both teams have 38 points, but the Ducks have played five more games than Boston so far this year. Boston has played pretty […]
