Blown Tires: 3 1st-Period Goals Chase Luongo from Game 6 as Bruins Force Game 7

Lord Stanley’s Cup came to Boston, and all the Vancouver Canucks needed to do to win it Monday night at the Garden was play the same punishing offense and fantastic goal-tending that had won them Game 5 last Friday. Only problem: no one told Roberto Luongo. Luongo gave up three easy goals within the first […]

Bruins Drop Season Finale, Turn Focus to Montreal

In their final game of the regular season, the Bruins lost 3-2 to the Devils after taking some of the game off, but since 15 of the 16 seeds had already been wrapped up (including all eight East slots), they could afford to get the extra rest. New Jersey got on the board just 1:47 […]

Bruins Defeat Islanders in Milestone Night

April 6th may have seemed like any other day but for three Bruins players, it really was a day to remember.  Nathon Horton played his 500th career game and Tomas Kaberle played his 900th career game Wednesday night against the Islanders.  Not to be outdone, the true NHL workhorse, Mark Recchi, passed Chris Chelios for fourth […]

Bruins Defeat Atlanta, Clinch Division

Boston only needed one point to clinch the division, but they got two, winning at home 3-2 against the Atlanta Thrashers.

Thomas, Bruins Shut Out Blackhawks (And Their Playoff Hopes)

Some times it’s just nice to play spoiler. The Boston Bruins worked on doing that Tuesday night as they matched up against the Chicago Blackhawks. While the Bruins already secured it’s playoff spot, the Blackhawks needed a win to help them stay afloat in the race for eighth place in the Western Conference. Chicago is […]

Despite Good Performance, Bruins Fall to Rangers

The Bruins did pretty well defensively, but with a largely impotent offense, Boston fell to the New York Rangers 1-0. Tuukka Rask did well in goal, save for the one tip-in blemish. Just before, Michael Sauer of the Rangers, in the offensive zone, reached across the blue line to drag the puck towards him. Without […]

Bruins Hab Not Looked Better Against Montreal

Montreal came to Boston looking to make a statement, and instead they laid a giant egg. They collapsed like the U.S. economy. And after losing to Boston 7-0, Montreal’s divisional hopes may have gone up in smoke. There was sure a lot to salivate over, so let’s get to it. It didn’t take long for […]

Chara Helps Bruins to 4-1 Win Over Devils

Consistency is the key in the NHL. For some teams, it’s like getting up in the morning. For others, it’s like trying to ride a bike again, but you just can’t stay up. The Boston Bruins have seemed like the latter. The team has looked like a Stanley Cup caliber team at times, but then […]

Sabres Outlast Bruins in OT, 4-3

With all that’s going on off the ice in Bruinsland, it was hard to bring our focus back to the on-ice affairs of the team. Last night, the team’s focus seemed to be elsewhere also, as the B’s fell to the surging Buffalo Sabres, 4-3 in overtime, at the TD Garden. The B’s jumped out […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Thursday March 10th

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. So obviously, the focus since Tuesday night’s […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Tuesday March 8th

One of the best rivalries in the NHL heats up north of the border this evening, as the Bruins (38-19-8) travel to Montreal to take on the hated Canadiens (36-23-7). It was just 27 days ago when the B’s and Habs last met in a game many are still talking about. 182 penalty minutes, five […]
