Bruins Utterly Collapse Against New York

Still in the hunt for a top seed, Boston decided they didn’t want it, and dropped to the New York Rangers 5-3. That was after getting a 3-0 lead. Sound like a certain Game 7? In this case, Boston controlled the 1st period, winning the shot battle 19-5. They didn’t strike until late in the […]

With so much Bruins (38-20-8) news happening off the ice over the last 48 hours or so, it’s hard to remember that the team still has plenty of work left to do on the ice, including tonight, when the B’s host the Buffalo Sabres (32-26-8) at TD Garden.

Bruins Sweep Home-And-Home With Hurricanes

After the Bruins beat down the Hurricanes 7-0 on Monday night, the first in the home-and-home series, you had to wonder how Carolina would respond Tuesday night. As you might imagine, the Bruins didn’t score seven goals again, but they scored enough in a 3-2 victory. Tim Thomas was outstanding in net, especially in the […]

Bruins Drop Wild One in Shootout

In a game that went back and forth more than Hamlet deciding whether or not to be, the Buffalo Sabres emerged with a 7-6, shootout win. In a battle of futility between some of the (supposedly) best goaltenders in the NHL, nobody could play defense very well, or at all. Andrew Ference started the scoring […]

Bruins 2010-2011 Preview: Defensemen
