Bruins Win Insane War Against Habs

I have never seen anything like that. There hasn’t been action that chaotic in Boston since the Royal Rumble 10 days prior. The final victory, 8-6, seemed more like something Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford will put up in a few months. These two teams are supposed to be built on defense, but they scored […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday February 1st

With the All Star hoopla behind them, the Boston Bruins (28-15-7) will travel south to meet up with All Stars Tim Thomas and Zdeno Chara in Raleigh, as they prepare to face All Stars Eric Staal, Cam Ward, Jeff Skinner, and the rest of the Carolina Hurricanes (25-19-6) this evening. Thomas and Chara were featured […]

2010-2011 Boston Bruins Midseason Report Card

With 50 games in the books, the 2010-2011 Boston Bruins season has already past its halfway point. It seems like just yesterday that the team was over on their season-opening European trip, kicking off the season with a pair of games in Prague, splitting them with the Phoenix Coyotes. Months later, your hometown hockey squad […]

Five Third Period Goals Lead B’s Past Flyers, 7-5

With the help of seven different goal scorers on the night, the Bruins powered their way past the beasts of the East, the Philadelphia Flyers Thursday night at the Garden, winning a wild, back-and-forth affair, 7-5. Five third period goals helped the B’s erase three different one-goal deficits, on their way to their third straight […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Tuesday January 11th

The Bruins (22-12-7) kick off a four-game homestand this evening on Causeway Street, facing off with division rivals: the Ottawa Senators (16-20-6) at TD Garden. The B’s made quite the comeback in last night’s 4-2 win over the Sidney Crosby-less Pittsburgh Penguins. Down 2-0 with under four minutes to play, Boston rattled off four unanswered […]

Bruins Avoid Skid, Beat Penguins Without Sid the Kid

Might as well take advantage when possible. For the Bruins, they were able to capitalize on a Pittsburgh Penguins team that was lacking Sidney Crosby. How did they do it you may ask? The same way they got beat just two nights earlier against the Montreal Canadiens. Down by two goals late in the third […]

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 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Thrashers, Thursday December 30th

The Bruins (20-11-4) will wrap up 2010 tonight with their third stop on their five-city road trip, going up against a familiar foe, the Atlanta Thrashers (19-14-6). These two teams have headed in opposite directions since their meeting just one week ago. It was then when the B’s woke up from a 1-3-1 slump to […]

Bruins Shock Lightning to Extend Division Lead

The Boston Bruins scored first and never fell behind the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday’s 4-3 win in Florida – but it was close. Mark Recchi scored the game-winning, power-play goal with just 20 seconds remaining in the third period. The Bruins were coming off of a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Monday, […]

Bruins Win Netminder Showdown in OT

A few fluke goals ultimately determined the winner of Tuesday nights’ matchup between the Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres. With arguably two of the NHL’s best goaltenders between the pipes, both teams needed quality shots and good playmaking to come out victorious at the TD Garden. But, the Bruins’ forwards weren’t getting the number […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Friday November 26th

The Bruins (12-6-2) return home after a brief two-game jaunt through the Sunshine State to host the Carolina Hurricanes (9-12-2) at the TD Garden for a matinee game on Causeway Street. Boston rebounded from a very rough game in Tampa Monday with a come-from-behind effort Wednesday against the Panthers that earned them a 3-1 victory, […]

Bruins Beat Panthers 3-1 Behind Recchi’s Two Goals

Just last week, the Bruins beat Dennis Wideman’s Florida Panthers 4-0, and before we could catch our breath, the Bruins and Panthers locked horns again. This time, on Wednesday night, it was a tighter affair. The Panthers led 1-0 heading into the third period thanks to a goal in the previous frame from Steven Reinprecht, his […]

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 […]

Bruins Hold Off Late Rangers’ Push For the Win

On Wednesday, the New York Rangers struck first, but it was Boston who laughed last in a 3-2 victory in Madison Square Garden. The Bruins scored three goals in between New York’s scores, in a relatively tame game penalty-wise, to give Tim Thomas yet another win, this time over Henrik Lundqvist. Neither team did much […]

Bruins Fight Back, Beat Pens 7-4

Never thought I’d see the day. Bruins getting smashed in the mouth right and left, down two goals and somehow come back to win by three? Just doesn’t seem right. After being down by two goals heading into the third period, the Pittsburgh Penguins were tossing the Bruins around all over the ice (and into […]
