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 Top Brodeur, Devils 6-1

The Bruins ┬áhave 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 […]

Thomas Leads Red-Hot Bruins Over Crosby’s Penguins

When you’re winning, everyone contributes. The same has held true for the Bruins over the last 15 games, over which the Bruins have an amazing 14-0-1 record, with the latest triumph coming Monday night over the East-leading Pittsburgh Penguins. For many of the team’s wins through the points streak, the B’s have received big efforts […]

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.

Once More, Bruins Can’t Figure Out Maple Leafs

In trying to keep pace with Philadelphia and Washington, Boston instead couldn’t keep pace with Toronto, losing at home 4-3 in a shootout. The two teams were relatively even in the 1st Period, with the only goal coming on a wrist shot from Toronto’s Luke Schenn. Toronto also out-shot Boston by one in the period, […]

Despite Good Performance, Bruins Fall to Rangers

The Bruins did pretty well defensively, but with a largely impotent offense, Boston fell to the New York Rangers 1-0. Tuukka Rask did well in goal, save for the one tip-in blemish. Just before, Michael Sauer of the Rangers, in the offensive zone, reached across the blue line to drag the puck towards him. Without […]

Bruins Hab Not Looked Better Against Montreal

Montreal came to Boston looking to make a statement, and instead they laid a giant egg. They collapsed like the U.S. economy. And after losing to Boston 7-0, Montreal’s divisional hopes may have gone up in smoke. There was sure a lot to salivate over, so let’s get to it. It didn’t take long for […]

Bruins Don’t Even Try, Lose in Toronto

A couple of pockets of pressure didn’t do anything for the Bruins, who laid down for the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 5-2 loss north of the border. Tim Thomas made a couple of good saves about 6:15 in, and another with 12:36 remaining, but was beaten with 10:16 left in the 1st Period on […]

Sabres Outlast Bruins in OT, 4-3

With all that’s going on off the ice in Bruinsland, it was hard to bring our focus back to the on-ice affairs of the team. Last night, the team’s focus seemed to be elsewhere also, as the B’s fell to the surging Buffalo Sabres, 4-3 in overtime, at the TD Garden. The B’s jumped out […]

Bruins Back on Track With 6-3 Win Over Islanders

Two streaks came to an end last night on Long Island, as the B’s snapped their longest losing streak of the season at three, beating the red hot New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, 6-3. They also ended New York’s season-long four-game win streak. The Boston win kicked off their six-game road trip in grand […]

Kessel Powers Toronto Past Boston

Sometimes it just takes a couple of games to prove your worth. For Phil Kessel, it took him almost a year to put some points on the board against his former team. The last time Kessel registered a point against the Boston Bruins was on March 9, 2010, when he was credited for an assist. […]

Bruins Beat & Beat Up Dallas, 6-3

In what was easily the most entertaining hockey game of the Bruins season thus far, Boston dropped the hammer on the Dallas Stars last night at the Garden, doubling up on Dallas, 6-3. The teams got the fireworks going early and often, with three fights in the first four seconds, and four bouts overall in […]

Ryan Miller’s 38 Saves Lead Sabres Past Bruins, 4-2

The Bruins fell to a hungrier, more desperate Buffalo Sabres team Thursday night, failing to protect two separate one-goal leads and eventually losing to their division rival, 4-2 at the Garden. Boston’s energy and effort was flat for much of the contest, especially down the stretch. They opened up the scoring midway through the first […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday January 18th

The Bruins (25-13-7) hit the road this evening, heading south to Raleigh to take on a familiar foe, the Carolina Hurricanes (22-17-6). It was just over 24 hours ago that the B’s beat down the ‘Canes at TD Garden, wrapping up a four-game homestand with a 7-0 trouncing of Carolina. There were all sorts of […]
