Bruins Fail to Take Any Points in Home-and-Home, Lose to Red Wings 4-2

Following the Boston Bruins’ embarrassing 6-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, it was pretty clear the B’s needed to score more and be scored on less. In Sunday’s away game of the weekend home-and-home series, Boston accomplished just that, but not to the degree they needed, losing 4-2. The Bruins started off strong with […]

Red Wings Top Rask, Bruins 6-1

It was Tuukka Time at the Garden on Friday night in the first of a home-and-home with another one of the Original Six: the Detroit Red Wings. If this were 2010, Tuukka Time was most of the time after the youngster strangled hold of the starting job over what seemed to be the aging Tim […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Red Wings, Friday February 11th

Wrapping up a rather successful and very eventful four-game homestand, the Bruins (31-16-7) will host their second straight Original Six franchise at TD Garden tonight, as they begin a home-and-home series with the Detroit Red Wings (32-16-6). With Wednesday’s win, the B’s gave themselves some breathing room atop the Northeast Division, now enjoying a three-point […]

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 […]

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 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 9

Another week into the season, and the East’s eight are moving away from the pack, though the top four seeds are shuffling and the latter four are all tied. That’s the same situation in the West, too, except four teams are just one win away from moving into the brackets. The last place team in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 8

After two months, we’re starting to see some separation in the East, but no such luck in the West. Between eight and nine in the East is five points, but one in the West; even last place in the Pacific Division (San Jose) is just one win away from poking their nose into the race. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 7

Welcome to a special Thanksgiving week edition of the NHL’s “If the Playoffs…” And be sure to enjoy the Bruins’ matinee later Friday. This past week-and-a-game has included many fun moments, including a new top team in the league, as you’ve already noticed. Phoenix has charged forward, one point away from Detroit for the West’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 6

The red-hot Capitals (70 goals, by the way), show no signs of stopping anytime soon, especially when they’re gunning for another President’s Trophy. Though the Red Wings are making a challenge. And Boston’s doing quite well, when they’re on the road, anyway. Buffalo’s making a push to become relevant again, while St Louis is slipping. […]
