Right Wing Option for Bruins Top Line

Although Seth Griffith has done a decent job playing on the right side of David Krejci and Milan Lucic with an impressive game Tuesday night against Minnesota, it still feels that an upgrade at the positon is necessary if the Bruins wish to regain the production lost from 30-plus goal scorer Jarome Iginla last season.

2014-2015 Bruins Preview: Defense

Any good coach will tell you that “defense wins championships” and that certainly strikes true in today’s NHL.

2011 Bruins Preview: Defensemen

While no one can deny that all of the awards and accolades Bruins goalie Tim Thomas received after last season’s historic Stanley Cup run were all very well-deserved, I’m here to tell you that hey, the guy didn’t do it all on his own. Without the talents of the Bruins’ “blue line brigade,” the team […]

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 […]
