Two-Goal Third Gives Bruins First Winning Streak Since January

The Boston Bruins have rarely played “complete” hockey over the last two months, alternating losses with frustrating, indecisive victories. And on those few occasions when they submitted a complete game, they never followed it with a second. No more. The Bruins capitalized on two goals in the final period Thursday night at TD Garden, beating […]

First Place Rangers Distance Themselves From Bruins With 4-3 Win

The Bruins fell to the Rangers 4-3 in a Sunday matinée in New York. Once again the Bruins out shot their opponents by a significant number and come up short. Henrik Lundqvist played some of his best hockey against the Bruins, with 30 saves this afternoon helping the Rangers to a victory. Tim Thomas wasn’t […]

Thomas Relieves Injured Rask, Falters Against Islanders

The Boston Bruins have needed no one’s help to play lazy, lackadaisical, .500 hockey since mid-January. But Saturday afternoon against the New York Islanders, they got a little help from the referees. A possibly uncalled icing penalty late in the third led to a tie-breaking goal by center John Tavares, and Evgeni Nabokov saved 32 […]

Video: David Krejci’s Hat Trick Gets Bruins Past Devils

I know, you’ve heard this stat ad nauseum: the Bruins were 5-8 in the month of February and were shut out in FIVE of those losses. Simply put, the top three lines needed to perform better. You need to put the puck in the back of the net to win hockey games. Obviously. David Krejci […]

Bruins Bring Offense to St. Louis, Beat Blues 4-2

The Bruins beat the Blues 4-2 in regulation. Boston had an offensive explosion in the first period with three goals, but the Blues answered with two goals of their own in the first 20 minutes. Brad Marchand added a third period goal on a breakaway to seal the deal, his second goal of the game. […]

Bruins Turn Predators Into Prey in Saturday Matinee

The Bruins had to hold their breath late into another game on their shaky stretch, but in the end, they got the job done against Nashville, 4-3, in a shootout. The Bruins did keep up the offense, but Tim Thomas didn’t have the best day against a Nashville offense that didn’t get more than seven […]

David Krejci Demoted to Third Line Center

Bruins fans have gotten use to seeing David Krejci centering a line with Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton on his wings. With Horton out of the line up due to a concussion, Rich Peverley jumped up to fill his spot. The first and only game that the Lucic-Krejci-Peverley played together was a loss against Pittsburgh, all three […]

Ward’s Shutout Gives Hurricanes First Season Sweep Over Bruins

The Boston Bruins did just about everything they could against the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night at the TD Garden. They won over 70 percent of their face-offs. They hit hard and often. And they ripped shot after shot after shot at goalie Cam Ward. They just couldn’t score. Ward saved all 47 shots against him […]

Bruins’ Fourth Line Carries Team Past Devils

Good things come to those who wait. The Boston Bruins waited five games to get back Brad Marchand. They waited two games to get back Rich Peverley. And they waited 63 minutes Thursday night before finally solving the New Jersey Devils’ stout defense and even more stout goalie, Martin Brodeur. Once the waiting period ended, […]

Bruins Fall to Hurricanes, Get Swept in Season Series

The Bruins lost a tough game to the Hurricanes in Carolina 4-2 on Saturday night. Carolina responded to goals by Boston twice and added an empty net goal to seal the deal. The Hurricanes are having a down season, but were ready to play and were helped further by sloppy play by the Bruins. Two Bruins giveaways […]

Bruins Get Lucky, Hold Off Canadiens For 2-1 Win

For the first time in recent memory, the Bruins and Canadiens played a meaningless game. Why? Well, simply put, the Canadiens suck this season. Montreal is 12th in the Eastern Conference and has a losing record. They entered the game 16 (!!!) points behind the Bruins in the East. Things are so bad, they traded […]

Bruins Smother Flames With Nine Goals, Twelve Point-Scoring Players

As a young boy, I played on a recreation-league soccer team in Brookline, Mass. We weren’t very good, but I liked the team’s name: the Flames. I’m pretty sure we could’ve given the Boston Bruins a better game than the Calgary Flames gave them Thursday night at TD Garden. Patrice Bergeron and Nathan Horton each […]

Bruins Top Brodeur, Devils 6-1

The Bruins  have been so good this season, they lead the NHL in goals per game (3.43), goals allowed per game (1.91), and goal differential (+60). Simply put, they are the best team in the NHL. That’s why their 4-2 loss last Saturday against the Stars was so surprising, though it is impossible (except in […]

Bruins Top Coyotes in OT 2-1, Extend Streak to 7

The Bruins looked to continue their unbelievable run as they journeyed into Phoenix on Wednesday night. The B’s are not just winning games lately, they’re dominating other hockey squads and making it look like they belong in a league of their own. After a rough start, they have gone 20-2-1 in their last 23 games, […]

Sputtering Bruins End Losing Streak in Columbus

It took a while to get on track in this game and the past few games, but the Boston Bruins finally started a new winning streak in Columbus, taking the win 5-3. Starting the game, it looked like Boston’s losing streak would be pushed to three games; just 5:46 in, the Blue Jackets took the […]
