Frozen Fenway Features Monster Sled

As Boston feels the bite of Mr. Frost, many a Boston baseball fan reminisces about summer nights at Fenway Park. The folks at Fenway Park knew you would be feeling this way, so they built a giant ramp called the “Monster Sled” for visitors attending this year’s Frozen Fenway festivities running from December 28, 2013 […]

NHL Hockey: To Fight or Not to Fight

As the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New York Islanders have all shown, fighting is alive and well in the NHL. Now, no one will argue that fighting in hockey is in any way new; current rules regarding punishment for “fisticuffs” date back to the 1920s. But it does seem like these last […]

Americans Top Mighty Canadians, 5-3

The Vancouver Games have been dominated by the United States thus far, and that superior play carried over into the hockey rink Sunday night, as the highly anticipated battle of North America was finally staged at Canada Hockey Place: the heavily favored hosts from Canada, taking on the youthful, miracle-seeking United States. Led by a […]

U.S. Hockey Team Knocks Off Norway, 6-1

The U.S. Olympic men’s hockey squad was able to pull away from the Norwegians with three third period goals Thursday in Vancouver, giving them a convincing 6-1 win and second straight victory, heading into Sunday’s big matchup with the gold medal favorite Canadians. Former Bruin Phil Kessel and former B.U. grad Chris Drury both netted […]

Gold is the Goal: Olympic Men’s Hockey Preview

Beginning Tuesday, the world’s greatest hockey players will convene in Vancouver, British Columbia for the 2010 Winter Olympics. A dozen teams, featuring the best pucksters from around the globe, all vying for Olympic gold. For true hockey fans, does it get any better than this? But what can we expect to see over the 13-day […]

Bruins Continue to Slide; Panic Moves to Follow?

After a very good start, the Bruins face their first real “challenge” this year, as they have to find a way to get out of a six-game losing streak as they lost, last night, 5-0 to the Thrashers. We can say that injuries are at play here, but there’s no way to explain why the […]

Running Scared

I thought that Christmas would be calm and sweet for the Bruins, but a column, written by Kevin Paul Dupont, suggesting that Phil Kessel could be on the trade market, fired up boards and forums. I think it’s time for me to weigh in. What can I say? A young, promising player, on the block, […]

Bruins Mid-Season Report

It’s Christmas and the Bruins just passed the 36 games benchmark which is almost the half-way point of the season. It’s time to evaluate the team on their defensive, offensive and goaltending performances. Defense: The most improved aspect of the team. Last year, the Bruins were incredibly good at creating turnovers in their own end; […]

Better Than We Thought

I must admit, as a long time fan, that this Bruins team is very surprising. I looked last night at clips of the past season and wonder how this team could be so bad in their own end. Their 3rd period collapses were so predictable that it becomes a running gag among the fans. So […]

Looking for 3…

After stealing 2 points in Toronto and Buffalo ( thanks to Alex Auld for these 2 points ), the Bruins are in Atlanta where they will try to extend their winning streak to 3. This game should be interesting and our defensive corps will be challenge, again, by a excellent duo made of Kovalchuk and […]

Kobasew, Auld shines in a 2-1 win

After being terrible, Thursday, the B’s came back with a better effort and win a close one by the score of 2-1. This game underlined the performance of Chuck Kobasew, who was excellent all night long, with speed, aggressiveness and hard work. Alex Auld started his first game and he made the saves when he […]
