After No Big Off-Season Moves, Are the Bruins Good Enough?

With the NFL season only a few weeks away that can only mean that the NHL season is rapidly approaching as well. The off-season thus far for the Bruins has been a rather quiet one, only resigning players from last seasons roster. Peter Chiarelli has made it clear that he likes his team and is […]

Bruins 2012 Report Card: Chara, Seidenberg, Ference, Boychuk

The Boston Bruins defense was once again one of the best in the NHL, as the team finished with the highest team goal differential at plus 67 over 82 games.

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 […]

Bruins Survive Late Meltdown to Down Senators

It was a tough start and finish for Boston, but they had enough meat in the middle to finish off the win in Ottawa, 5-3. Boston did get one chance with immediate pressure, but did nothing with it except give up pressure themselves. Erik Karlsson took advantage, surprising Tim Thomas just 1:10 into the game. […]

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 Overcome Slow Start to Ground Jets

Winnipeg made some early noise, but in the end, Boston came roaring back to defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2. Tim Thomas made a great 5-hole save early on during the first Winnipeg power play on a tough shot, but the Jets later came roaring through the neutral zone before Boston knew what hit them, resulting […]

Bruins Find Spark, Defeat Senators

On a great offensive night, the Bruins turned around their recent struggles with a nice 5-3 win against Ottawa. Boston had been struggling coming into action on Tuesday night, and needed a strong performance to begin turning their season around. They had lost their previous two games to Montreal, and came into the game against […]

Bruins Mostly Flat in Loss in Montreal

Boston’s highly disappointing start to the season continued Saturday in Montreal, as they fell 4-2 to the hated Habs. The Bruins had a few moments, though for the most part they were rather lackluster. After some early energy, Boston got sloppy with the puck. After some assistance from the referees on a questionable holding call […]

2011 Bruins Preview: Defensemen

While no one can deny that all of the awards and accolades Bruins goalie Tim Thomas received after last season’s historic Stanley Cup run were all very well-deserved, I’m here to tell you that hey, the guy didn’t do it all on his own. Without the talents of the Bruins’ “blue line brigade,” the team […]
