Bruins Fall 5-3 to Penguins, Boychuck Injured

With the Boston Bruins locked into the number two spot in the East, the game Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins should have had no meaning. In a 5-3 loss, the Bruins may have lost more than the game. Johnny Boychuck was on the wrong side of a knee-on-knee collision with Aaron Asham midway through the third […]

Win-Win Situation in Bruins’ Victory Over Islanders

Marty Turco didn’t have all that much work in the Bruins 6-3 win over the Islanders, stopping 19 out of 22 shots. Turco did stand tall at points in the game, making point-blank saves on multiple opportunities. That’s pretty much all you need from a backup goaltender, as he put his team in a position […]

Rask Getting Ready for a Playoff Return

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask told ESPNBoston and other outlets Wednesday that his recovery from an abdominal strain/groin strain is going well and that he hopes to be ready for the postseason. Rask has been out since March 3 and at the time of the injury the team hoped he would be ready for playoffs. There are two ways to […]

Bruins Top Lightning, Get a Critical 2 Points

Entering Tuesday’s game, I didn’t know what to expect as the Bruins were playing a team that beat them 6-1 earlier in the month. In that game, the Bruins got some inconsistent goaltending play from both Marty Turco and Tim Thomas. Turco started the game and was shortly pulled in the first period. Tim Thomas came […]

Bruins Steal One in Anaheim, Win 3-2 Over Ducks

The Boston Bruins have now won four of their last five games, ending the west coast trip with a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks. The Bruins have now opened up a five point lead over Ottawa and still have a game in hand. Marty Turco recorded his first win since February 1st of 2011 […]

Turco & Thomas Awful; Bruins Struck by Lightning 6-1

It’s Turco Time! Kinda sounds like Tuukka Time, right? Well, that’s where the similarities end. New acquisition Marty Turco, in his first start for the Bruins, allowed three goals within the first five minutes of the game, and four overall in the first period on just 12 shots, to send the Bruins to their third straight […]

Penguins Handle and Hurt Bruins 5-2

The Bruins once again started the game slow getting down three goals in the first period. Tim Thomas didn’t look sharp again playing in back to back days. Marty Turco made his Bruins debut in relief of Thomas and played well considering the situation. Injuries continue to hurt the Bruins, Adam McQuaid, Max Sauve, and […]

What We Learned This Week: Professor Paps, Peyton’s Place?

What We Learned This Week Week of March 3 – March 10   Peyton Manning Got Cut From a 2-14 Team What a scrub! I hope the poor guy can somehow catch on with another team. It will be strange to see Peyton Manning in another uniform (or another helmet) but Johnny Unitas with the […]

Tuukka Rask Injured, Out 4-6 Weeks; Bruins Sign Marty Turco

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is out for 4-6 weeks with a lower abdomen strain/groin strain, the team announced Monday. The time period means Rask will likely miss the rest of the regular season (which ends April 7) and possibly some of the playoffs. He was hurt during the team’s loss to the Islanders on Saturday. […]

The playoff-bound Bruins (42-23-10) return home for another three-game homestand, that kicks off tonight when they skate with the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks (41-26-8) at TD Garden. Boston officially punched their postseason ticket with their 2-1 win over East-leading Philadelphia Sunday night. For Boston, it was their third win in their last […]

Bruins Outshine Stars, 3-0

Slump? What slump? Led by the play of some of their “money players,” Marc Savard’s two goals and Tim Thomas’s 13th career shutout paved the way for Boston, as the B’s downed the Dallas Stars Friday night. The loss was the first of the season in regulation for Dallas. The Bruins opened the scoring late […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Stars, Friday 10/16

After a homestand filled with struggles, the Bruins begin the road portion of their schedule tonight in the Lonestar State, facing off against the Dallas Stars. Boston has started the year 2-3-0 thus far, a disappointing record for a team with such high expectations. The team is hoping that this brief road trip will help […]
