Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Saturday 11-14

The Bruins (8-7-3) will see their first repeat opponent of the young NHL season Saturday night, as they travel to the Steel City to face off against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins (12-7-0). Pittsburgh is in the midst of a 4-game losing streak, following their home defeat to the Devils Thursday night. This past […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Panthers, Thursday 11/12

The Bruins (8-7-2) will look to extend their season-long winning streak to three Thursday night, when they wrap up their short four-game homestand hosting the Florida Panthers (5-9-1) at TD Garden. While Boston is still looking for a more consistent presence on the offensive end of the ice without scorers Marc Savard and Milan Lucic […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Saturday 11-7

The Bruins will look to turn their luck around Saturday night at the TD Garden, hosting the Northeast Division leading Buffalo Sabres (9-3-1). Buffalo is coming off just their third loss of the season Friday night in Philadelphia, falling to the Flyers 5-2. The Sabres’ roster remained mainly unchanged from last year, a year that […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Red Wings, Tuesday 11-3

The Boston Bruins (6-6-1) head to Motown Tuesday night to match-up with another member of the NHL’s Original Six, the Detroit Red Wings (5-4-3), in a game that will feature two of last year’s top teams who this year, are faltering out of the gates. This will be the 576th meeting of the two teams […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Oilers, Saturday 10-31

The Bruins begin their busy Halloween weekend this afternoon, with a matinee matchup against the Edmonton Oilers at TD Garden. The Oilers (7-5-1) are just three seasons removed from an improbable Stanley Cup run, a run that ended with a Game 7 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2006 Finals. Since then, Edmonton has […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Thursday 10-29

The Bruins are back in action at the TD Garden tonight, as they host all-world goalie Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils. Boston is coming off a surprising 4-3 come-from-behind win over Ottawa last Saturday, a win that saw the Bruins erase a two-goal deficit within the last 90 seconds of the third period. […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Saturday 10-24

The Black and Gold travel north of the border Saturday for their first divisional game of the season against the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. Behind some stellar saves by backup Tuukka Rask, the Bruins were able to steal a point on Thursday night, eventually falling to the Flyers in a shootout, 4-3. For the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Thursday 10-22

After surviving in Wednesday night’s 3-2 win over Nashville, the bruised Bruins take their show back on the road Thursday night for a match-up against the Philadelphia Flyers. Philadelphia, who started the season winning three straight, have now dropped three in a row heading into the game with Boston. While the B’s will be looking […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Predators, Wednesday 10-21

The Bruins will showcase their new-look roster Wednesday night at the TD Garden, hosting the lowly Nashville Predators. Boston GM Peter Chiarelli, in an effort to shake up his under-performing squad, sent winger Chuck Kobasew to Minnesota over the weekend, in exchange for minor leaguer Craig Waller, unsigned draft choice Alexander Fallstrom, and a draft […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Coyotes, Saturday 10-17

The Bruins will attempt to win back-to-back games for the first time this season Saturday night in Phoenix, as they look to follow up Friday’s convincing 3-0 victory over the Dallas Stars. Boston was able to get two goals from center Marc Savard and 27 saves from Tim Thomas that led the Bruins to their […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Stars, Friday 10/16

After a homestand filled with struggles, the Bruins begin the road portion of their schedule tonight in the Lonestar State, facing off against the Dallas Stars. Boston has started the year 2-3-0 thus far, a disappointing record for a team with such high expectations. The team is hoping that this brief road trip will help […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Avalanche, Monday 10-12

After playing like garbage for much of Saturday night’s matchup with the New York Islanders, the Bruins’ offense came alive in the last ten minutes of the third period. Three quick goals to tie it and a scoreless five-minute overtime session later, the young Bruins’ netminder Tuukka Rask was facing Islanders’ veteran goalie Dwayne Roloson […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Saturday 10-10

Another ugly performance from the Bruins on Thursday kept the yo-yo start of Boston’s season going, as the 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Ducks made fans quickly forget the B’s drubbing of the ‘Canes the game before. At 1-2 now with two games left on this five-game season opening homestand, the Bruins hope […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Ducks, Thursday 10/8

Consider it a “Disneyland Doubleheader” for Boston sports Thursday evening, kicking off with the Bruins hosting the Anaheim Ducks at the TD Garden tonight, of course followed by the start of the Red Sox-Angels ALDS series out west. For the Bruins, they host a young Ducks team still hungry for their first win of the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes Saturday 10-3

The Carolina Hurricanes return to the scene of the crime tonight at TD Garden, as they come back to the building where Scott Walker and the ‘Canes stole a Game 7 overtime victory from the top-seeded Bruins in the second round of last season’s playoffs. After the heated seven-game series last spring, these two squads […]
