Right Wing Option for Bruins Top Line

Although Seth Griffith has done a decent job playing on the right side of David Krejci and Milan Lucic with an impressive game Tuesday night against Minnesota, it still feels that an upgrade at the positon is necessary if the Bruins wish to regain the production lost from 30-plus goal scorer Jarome Iginla last season. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 2

The NHL season is well-underway, especially considering the greatly shortened length of the season. With that being said, the standings don’t look like they usually do, partly due to the low number of games played, but it also has a lot to do with the urgency felt by every team earlier than usual. The Maple […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 6

It’s a week before Thanksgiving, and things are getting close. Four divisions are led by at most two points, while another is led by three. Pretty much everyone except the Islanders and Blue Jackets is still well in the hunt. Virtually no seed has any amount of safety at the moment, so let’s look at […]

Triple-Double: Bruins Hang Six Goals on Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers survived the Boston Bruins’ first two-goal period Thursday night at the TD Garden. They couldn’t survive the second. Or the third. The Bruins scored twice in all three periods Thursday, powering them to a 6-3 victory over the once-streaking Oilers. The Bruins have now scored 24 goals in their last four games.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Another week down, and the standings are starting to get shaken up. Even the Bruins are improving, though there’s still a long way to go to solidify a shot at a seed. So far, only the Stars have a multiple-game lead in their division. And for that matter, only the Blue Jackets are dead in […]

Bruins Den: Out of Hibernation, Into a Winning Streak

Well, well, well… what a week for the Bruins! It seems like Halloween spooked some offense into the B’s, who are now riding their first winning streak of the season as they begin a five-game homestand. With some of the best and worst teams of the league about to visit Boston, the conference-worst (second to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 4

We’re now a month into the hockey season, and the defending champs continue to disappoint. Toronto, Ottawa, Florida and Edmonton are all just a few examples of surprising teams early on. It’s still fairly crowded as far as playoff contenders go, though a few teams seem to be fading already. There’s still plenty of time […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 3

Another week into the season and we’re getting an early sense of who might pull ahead later, though it is still close. Every team now has at least one win, and Washington is the only perfect team left (the only one without any sort of loss, even). There continue to be several surprising teams, both […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

The NHL season is underway. Boston has begun their title defense, and Winnipeg has ushered in their new team. And Philly and Pittsburgh have picked up where they left off last season, accumulating large amounts of points and leaving the rest of the Atlantic Division in their wake. Vancouver has been active, but doesn’t quite […]

Bruins to Pick 9th in 2011 NHL Draft

With the playoffs about to start, and the focus clearly on the Montreal Canadiens, the Boston Bruins learned that they will pick ninth overall in the 2011 NHL Draft on June 24th. This pick is the last of two first round picksthat the Bruins received by trading  Phil Kessel to Toronto in the summer of 2009.   With […]

Bruins Edge Edmonton For Fifth Straight Win, 3-2

After a huge 3-1 victory in Vancouver Saturday night over the league-leading Canucks, I wasn’t going to be surprised if the Bruins laid an egg on Sunday night against the lowly Edmonton Oilers. But instead, after falling behind early in the game, Tuukka Rask and the Bruins’ defense rose to the occasion, coming back to […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Oilers, Sunday February 27th

The Bruins (35-19-7) continue their trek across the Great White North this evening, lacing them up at Rexall Place to take on the lowly Edmonton Oilers (20-34-8). Boston is coming off a very impressive 3-1 victory last night over the league’s top team, the Vancouver Canucks. Hometown boy Milan Lucic proved to be the hero […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

Isn’t the first week great? It’s the only time of a year that we get to see things like the Maple Leafs as the best team in the league. And it’s the one time of the year when Marty Brodeur is still working out the kinks, and the Bruins, just like the rest of the […]

Let’s Get Puck’d: NHL Western Conference Preview

Welcome, as we march on with the second half of this year’s NHL previews, this time shifting our focus to the Western Conference. To me, the West is wide open this year. Chicago, the league’s reigning Cup champs, had to have a fire sale in the off-season to relieve their salary cap crunch, which should […]

Tim Thomas Trade Winds Blowing, Destination Unknown

The action on the ice has cooled off around the NHL, but this week the focus shifts off the ice, as a busy week in hockey is headlined by Tuesday’s Hall of Fame inductees announcement, Wednesday night’s awards ceremony in Las Vegas, and this weekend’s NHL entry draft in Los Angeles. Follow that up with […]
