Winners of five or their last six, the Bruins (28-23-11) take their show on the road for seven straight games, beginning with this afternoon’s game on Long Island to face the slumping New York Islanders. The seven-game roadie marks the longest road trip since the ’03-’04 season for the B’s. Boston is coming off a […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canucks, Saturday 2/6

After Thursday night’s 3-2 loss to the Montréal Canadiens, the Boston Bruins (23-22-10, 13-12-5 at home) have now lost nine straight games as they welcome the Vancouver Canucks (34-20-2, 11-13-1 on the road), Canada’s most successful team this season, to the TD Garden at 1 p.m. for a matinee matchup.

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Thursday 2/4

The Bruins (23-22-9) will look to end their current eight-game skid tonight at the Garden when they host Original Six rival Montreal (26-25-6).

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Kings, Saturday 1-30

The streak continued for the bumbling Bruins (23-21-8) Friday night, losing their sixth straight game at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres, 2-1. The effort was promising, but getting pucks past Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller is a tall task for any team. The loss extended Boston’s longest losing streak of the season, leaving them in […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Saturday 1/23

After a brutal loss to the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets Thursday night, the Bruins (23-18-8) will look to avoid their fourth straight loss this afternoon when they host a familiar foe, the Ottawa Senators (27-21-4).   This will mark the sixth and final meeting between these two division rivals.  Boston won the first four games, […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sharks, Thursday 1/14

After a disappointing 4-3 loss in Anaheim last night, the Bruins (22-16-7) will head north to San Jose to take on old friend Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks (30-10-7). The Bruins had last night’s game in their grasps, enjoying a 3-2 lead at the second intermission. But two early third period goals by […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Ducks, Wednesday 1-13

The bruised and battered Bruins (22-15-7) will head west this week for three games in the Golden State, with hopes of not heading south in the standings. Their trio of games on the left coast begins tonight at the Honda Center in Anaheim, where they will face off with the red hot Ducks (20-19-7). Anaheim […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Tuesday 1/5

The Bruins (21-13-7) will finish the second half of their brief two-game road trip this evening in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa, as they head to ScotiaBank Place to take on the division rival Ottawa Senators (22-16-4). This matchup will feature teams that currently occupy the Eastern Conference’s fifth and sixth seeds, separated by just […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Rangers, Monday 1-4

Fresh off a truly classic outdoor game at Fenway Park on Friday, the Bruins (21-12-7) will look to avoid a letdown tonight as they travel to Manhattan to face the New York Rangers (19-17-5) at Madison Square Garden. The Bruins are coming off a come-from-behind 2-1 OT win over the Flyers on Friday, in a […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Panthers, Sunday 12/27

The Bruins (18-11-7) will look to continue their winning ways this afternoon in the Sunshine State, in the first half of a pair of games down in Florida. Today they begin with the Florida Panthers (16-16-7), a team that has been on the cusp of the playoff picture since the season’s beginning. This will be […]

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 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Friday 11-27

Two streaky teams will meet for a Friday matinee at high noon at the Garden, as the Bruins (12-8-4) will play host to all-world goalie Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils (15-6-1). Boston returns home after a very successful four-game road trip that saw the B’s put together their first extended winning streak of […]
