Two-Goal Third Gives Bruins First Winning Streak Since January

The Boston Bruins have rarely played “complete” hockey over the last two months, alternating losses with frustrating, indecisive victories. And on those few occasions when they submitted a complete game, they never followed it with a second. No more. The Bruins capitalized on two goals in the final period Thursday night at TD Garden, beating […]

Thomas Relieves Injured Rask, Falters Against Islanders

The Boston Bruins have needed no one’s help to play lazy, lackadaisical, .500 hockey since mid-January. But Saturday afternoon against the New York Islanders, they got a little help from the referees. A possibly uncalled icing penalty late in the third led to a tie-breaking goal by center John Tavares, and Evgeni Nabokov saved 32 […]

Bruins Survive Late Meltdown to Down Senators

It was a tough start and finish for Boston, but they had enough meat in the middle to finish off the win in Ottawa, 5-3. Boston did get one chance with immediate pressure, but did nothing with it except give up pressure themselves. Erik Karlsson took advantage, surprising Tim Thomas just 1:10 into the game. […]

Bruins and Boychuk Agree on Three-Year Extension

Boston has locked up defenseman Johnny Boychuk for the next three years to the tune of $10.08 million. TSN reported the news earlier today. Boychuk would have been an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, but the Bruins got a deal done and were able to secure the services of the 28-year-old. […]

Bruins Turn Predators Into Prey in Saturday Matinee

The Bruins had to hold their breath late into another game on their shaky stretch, but in the end, they got the job done against Nashville, 4-3, in a shootout. The Bruins did keep up the offense, but Tim Thomas didn’t have the best day against a Nashville offense that didn’t get more than seven […]

Ward’s Shutout Gives Hurricanes First Season Sweep Over Bruins

The Boston Bruins did just about everything they could against the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night at the TD Garden. They won over 70 percent of their face-offs. They hit hard and often. And they ripped shot after shot after shot at goalie Cam Ward. They just couldn’t score. Ward saved all 47 shots against him […]

Seguin Returns as Panthers Shut Out Bruins 2-0

The Florida Panthers shut out the Bruins 2-0 Thursday night. Despite out-shooting the Panthers 40-30, the B’s couldn’t get one by Jose Theodore. The Panthers have been one of the surprise teams this season in the NHL. Coming into Thursday, the Panthers sat in third place in the Eastern Conference, also riding a two-game winning streak and […]

Bruins Beat Leafs Again, Point Streak At 14 Games

The last time the Bruins had a regulation loss (back on Oct. 29), the Red Sox were without a manager, Julian Edelman hadn’t been arrested yet, and the NBA was still in a lockout with no end in sight. That trend continued Saturday night, with the Bruins taking down the Maple Leafs for the fourth […]

Bruins’ November Roll Continues Against Buffalo

Boston just can’t be beaten lately. Not even close. On Saturday, their next victim was Buffalo. The Sabres lost 6-2, in a rough showing. It didn’t start that way, though. Boston had the majority of shots in the 1st, though it was Buffalo who struck first blood at 5:38 on a wrist shot from Thomas […]

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.

Bruins Mostly Flat in Loss in Montreal

Boston’s highly disappointing start to the season continued Saturday in Montreal, as they fell 4-2 to the hated Habs. The Bruins had a few moments, though for the most part they were rather lackluster. After some early energy, Boston got sloppy with the puck. After some assistance from the referees on a questionable holding call […]

2011 Bruins Preview: Defensemen

While no one can deny that all of the awards and accolades Bruins goalie Tim Thomas received after last season’s historic Stanley Cup run were all very well-deserved, I’m here to tell you that hey, the guy didn’t do it all on his own. Without the talents of the Bruins’ “blue line brigade,” the team […]

Video: Johnny Boychuk Hits Mason Raymond in Bruins-Canucks Game 6

In an already chippy series, it only took a few moments into Game 6 to have the first serious hit. The hit, itself, didn’t look all that serious though. Canuck Mason Raymond was bent over and skated backwards, hitting the boards butt-first while his neck and shoulders had contact with Johnny Boychuk. In simpler terms, […]

Raffi Torres Goal with 18.5 Left in Third Gives Canucks Stanley Cup Game One Victory

It was a classic goalie battle Wednesday night as the Stanley Cup finals began at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. No Canuck could get past Tim Thomas, but neither could any Bruin get past Robert Luongo. Both were impenetrable walls, denying any and every shot. Sticks, skates, helmets, gloves, whatever it took to block the puck. […]

Video: Johnny Boychuck Slapshot Hits Steven Stamkos in Face, Causes Broken Nose?

Lightning winger Steven Stamkos was the recipient of a hard slapshot to the face in the second period off the stick of Johnny Boychuk (the puck was redirected off the stick of Martin St. Louis). Stamkos is a hockey player though, and remained in the game despite a disgusting deep gash on his nose. Despite […]
