Bruins All-Decade Team: 2000′s

The first decade of the new millennium has been a pendulum for the National Hockey League: it has seen the disappointment of a lockout during the 2004-2005 season coupled with the high expectations of “the Next One,” Sidney Crosby. The Boston Bruins had the same swings, ranging from the excitement of a first-place finish in […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Blackhawks, Friday 12/18

While the focus for many area hockey fans has turned to the preparations for the upcoming Winter Classic game at Fenway, the Bruins still have seven games to go before the big festivities. That schedule begins this evening in Chicago, where Boston (16-10-6) will face off against the Central Division leading Blackhawks (21-8-3) in the […]

Bruins Down on Defense: Stuart, Wideman Out

The Boston Bruins defense is going to have some holes during their upcoming three-game road trip. Blueliners Mark Stuart is set to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken sternum suffered during Monday night’s 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers and Dennis Wideman will miss at least Friday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks with an […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Thursday 12-10

It’s been a quiet week for the Black and Gold since their Saturday night stomping of Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (10-13-7). Behind a nifty hat trick by Marc Savard, the Bruins (15-9-5) were able to pummel the young Toronto squad, racking up seven goals en route to a 7-2 beatdown. Tonight, the […]

Bruins Hang On For 4-3 SO Victory Over Atlanta Thrashers

At times it was ugly. At times it was long. But overall, two points are two points and the Boston Bruins will take those however they can, even if it means being forced to a shootout, which is exactly what happened in Thursday night’s 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers. In front of an impressively […]

The Lost Boys on the Bruins

The 2009-10 Boston Bruins haven’t gotten off to the start many prognosticators had predicted them to. Expectations were high after last season, and deservedly so. Last year’s incarnation of the Black and Gold experienced a banner year, finishing 1st in the Eastern Conference and advancing past the first round of the playoffs for the first time in more than a […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Oilers, Saturday 10-31

The Bruins begin their busy Halloween weekend this afternoon, with a matinee matchup against the Edmonton Oilers at TD Garden. The Oilers (7-5-1) are just three seasons removed from an improbable Stanley Cup run, a run that ended with a Game 7 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2006 Finals. Since then, Edmonton has […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Predators, Wednesday 10-21

The Bruins will showcase their new-look roster Wednesday night at the TD Garden, hosting the lowly Nashville Predators. Boston GM Peter Chiarelli, in an effort to shake up his under-performing squad, sent winger Chuck Kobasew to Minnesota over the weekend, in exchange for minor leaguer Craig Waller, unsigned draft choice Alexander Fallstrom, and a draft […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Stars, Friday 10/16

After a homestand filled with struggles, the Bruins begin the road portion of their schedule tonight in the Lonestar State, facing off against the Dallas Stars. Boston has started the year 2-3-0 thus far, a disappointing record for a team with such high expectations. The team is hoping that this brief road trip will help […]

Hurricanes Downgraded to Tropical Storm

The Bruins got back on track and did what they do best (getting vengeance in the process), with a convincing 7-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, metaphorically giving them a Bill Bellichick t-shirt in return for last season’s playoff loss. With visions of evil still in their heads, the Bruins started aggressively, scoring three times […]

Bruins 2009-2010 Season Preview: Defensemen

The defensive corps performed well above expectations last season for the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins, and heading into this year’s campaign, the blue line brigade hopes to continue their dominating ways. After a season in which the B’s led the entire NHL with a strong 2.32 goals against average, the team is coming into this season […]

Lucic, Thomas Come Up Big in Bruins Win

With only seven games left in the regular season, the Bruins are finally on the right track after a rough month and a half of play. Almost like flipping a light switch, the Bruins have now won three straight games including Sunday night’s 4-3 win over the Flyers. Milan Lucic scored two goals and Tim […]

Bruins Get 3-1 Win Over Flyers

The Bruins managed to win yet another game thanks to a tremendous effort in the third period. Michael Ryder, David Krecji, and Dennis Wideman all scored for the Bruins, who now stand at an NHL-best 38-8-6. The Bruins were outshot 14-7 in the first period, but outshot the Flyers 26-12 the rest of the way […]

Bruins Hold Off Canadiens for Win

Since when could the Bruins win in Montreal? A week after the All-Star Game in Montreal, the Bruins returned to Canada for a date with the Habs. Goaltender Tim Thomas was solid in net, turning away 27 saves to lead the Bruins past the Canadiens 3-1. Dennis Wideman, Shawn Thornton, and Marc Savard (empty-netter) each […]

Stingy Rask Leads Bruins Over Rangers

Backup goaltender Manny Fernandez skated before the game but still felt discomfort in his back, so he was not going to be able to play Saturday afternoon against the Rangers. Tim Thomas has played an awful lot lately, and at the risk of being overextended, Claude Julien sat his goaltender against the Rangers. So, who […]
