Bruins Salvage Point From Improbable Comeback, But Fall 4-3 in Shootout

The highs and lows of this game were worlds apart, and in the end, the Kings finally finished off the Bruins 4-3 in a shootout, leaving the Bruins to settle for a single point. That isn’t too bad, considering the Kings led 3-0 at one point. The game started with obvious omens that it would […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Rangers, Wednesday November 17th

A busy week for the Bruins (9-5-1) continues Wednesday, when they head down Interstate 95 to the Big Apple, to take on an Original Six rival, the New York Rangers (10-7-1). The Rangers are winners of three straight games since their leading scorer from a year ago, Marian Gaborik, returned from a shoulder injury. Monday, […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Thursday October 28th

The Bruins (4-2-0) will look to get back on track Thursday at TD Garden when they host their first Northeast Division opponent of the year, Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (5-2-1). Boston had their four-game win streak snapped at home Saturday night, falling to the New York Rangers, 3-2. Tuukka Rask was back […]

Bruins 2010-2011 Preview: Defensemen

When most people think of what went wrong with the Bruins last year, the biggest problem was that they were unable to score goals to win games. Even when they were up against the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 in the series, they were unable to keep the momentum and ended up dropping four straight games on […]

Bruins Open Preseason With 4-2 Win Over Montreal

The Bruins kicked off their preseason slate of games Wednesday night in grand fashion, as they took down the hated Habs of Montreal up at the Bell Centre, 4-2. It didn’t take long for newcomer Nathan Horton to light the lamp for the B’s. Horton scored on his very first shot of the game, less […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 2

On Wednesday, we showed the first four things to watch for as the Bruins open camp. While the way the 2009-2010 Bruins season ended really stung, we are turning the page to a new era of Boston Bruins hockey. One way to get that started is with new talent, like Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 1

Is it too soon to talk about the Bruins yet, or is the sting of last spring’s playoff collapse still too painful to overcome? Personally, as tough as it may be to do, I say we turn the page to the next chapter: the 2010-11 NHL season. The B’s are off and running this month […]

Lots Bruin’: B’s Sign Recchi, Draft Seguin, Trade Sobotka, etc.

Hockey’s hot stove season has heated up and nowhere is it hotter than here in the Hub of Hockey. Highlighted by the NHL entry draft this past weekend and the selection of overall No. 2 pick Tyler Seguin, the Boston Bruins have put themselves in the center of it all, with moves being made, and […]

Bruins Sign Johnny Boychuk to Extension

The Bruins and defenseman Johnny Boychuk agreed on a two-year contract on Thursday worth $3.75 million. The 26-year-old will make $1.75 million next year and $2 million in the 2011-2012 season. “I was thinking about maybe going to free agency and seeing what was out there, but when I looked around the league I knew […]

Late Goal By Lucic Gives Bruins 2-0 Series Lead

You can’t help but acknowledge the irony. Amidst the celebration at TD Garden on Monday night, as the Boston Bruins took a commanding 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven semifinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers, The Standells’ “Love That Dirty Water” was blaring across the arena just like it would after any Bruins victory. But it […]

Sabres Grab Early Lead, Stay Alive to Beat Bruins in Game 5

Sabre Adam Mair scored on the team’s first shot on Friday night in Game 5 against the Bruins. OK, no problem. The Sabres have scored first in every game this series, and the Bruins carried a commanding 3-1 series lead. 1-0? Big deal. Then, the Sabres scored just before the end of the first period […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Rangers, Sunday March 21st

Fresh off a dismal performance Thursday against Matt Cooke and the Penguins, the Bruins (31-27-12) can’t sleep in today, as they host an early matinee game against Original 6 rival, the New York Rangers (31-31-9). With just three points separating these two teams for the last playoff spot in the East, it’s hard not to […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Tuesday 2/9

The Bruins (24-22-11), fresh off their Super Sunday shutout of the Montreal Canadiens north of the border, return to native soil tonight at HSBC Arena in Buffalo to take on the division-leading Sabres (32-18-7). While everyone already knows of the recent struggles of our own hometown hockey team, the Sabres haven’t been much better as […]

Super Sunday: Rask Helps Bruins Break Long Losing Streak

The Bruins entered Super Sunday losers of their last 10 games as they closed in on the worst losing streak in team history — an 11-game stretch in the 1924-25 season. A loss against the rival Canadiens on Sunday, and the Bruins would match the dubious mark and undoubtedly send a shockwave of panic across […]

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 […]
