Bruins Lose Much More than Game Against Canadiens

The Boston Bruins were handed a pretty big blow by the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night when they lost 2-1. Not only did they lose the game, but they also coughed up the division lead to Montreal and lost one of their key defenseman during the course of action. Coming into Thursday’s contest the Bruins […]

Bruins Lose Division Lead in Loss to Canadiens

Montreal Police to Interview Zdeno Chara Over Max Pacioretty Hit

Remember back in March when Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara ran Canadiens winger Max Pacioretty hard into the boards? The momentum led Pacioretty’s head to slam into the stanchion, knocking him out and ending his season. Chara was tossed from the game but did not receive further punishment by the NHL. He did however, face a potential […]

Max Pacioretty Mocks Brad Marchand’s Nose On Twitter

Zdeno Chara Hospitalized for Dehydration

Zdeno Chara was hospitalized Friday for dehydration. The Bruins confirmed this, and that Chara was still being attended to by their medical staff.

There’s a slightly important hockey game happening at the TD Garden this evening… you may have already heard about it. Tonight, the sixth and final meeting of two storied rivals hits Causeway Street with Northeast Division supremacy lying in the balance, as the Bruins (40-22-10) host the hated Montreal Canadiens (40-27-7). There sure is plenty […]

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 […]

Criminal Investigation Launched Regarding Chara Hit

Yesterday, after conducting a conference call with Chara, the NHL’s disciplinary gurus deemed the hit unworthy of any further discipline to the Boston captain, which of course triggered immediate outrage from the Montreal faithful. Pacioretty himself offered up comments to TSN’s Bob McKenzie yesterday from his hospital bed, saying he was “upset and disgusted” that […]

Pacioretty Adds Fuel to Chara Fire

Unlike his career, Max Pacioretty is refusing to let the banter about the Zdeno Chara hit die. When asked, he responded, “I am upset and disgusted that the league didn’t think enough of (the hit) to suspend him. I not mad for myself, I’m mad because if other players see a hit like that and […]

Chara Escapes Further Discipline from NHL; No Fine, No Suspension

In somewhat of a surprise move by the NHL today, the league has decided not to suspend or fine Bruins captain Zdeno Chara for the nasty hit on Montreal’s Max Pacioretty in last night’s 4-1 Canadiens win up at the Bell Centre. For the few of you who haven’t seen or heard about last night’s […]

Video: Max Pacioretty Hit By Zdeno Chara

The Bruins and Canadiens have a lot of history. We know that. Zdeno Chara and Max Pacioretty also have a bit of history. At a game in January, Chara and Pacioretty had a scuffle after the Habs winger scored the game-winning goal in overtime. Pacioretty shoved Chara after the goal, and several players had to […]

Canadiens Get Revenge on Bruins; Pacioretty Hospitalized After Chara Hit

Have there ever been two NHL teams that hate each other more than these two? I really don’t think an argument could be made for any other two teams in the history of the league. Every time the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens meet up, there’s always a story to go along. On Tuesday […]

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 […]

Complacent Bruins Blow Late Two-Goal Lead, Fall to Habs

Playing in hostile territory, the Bruins were making a statement as the best team in the Northeast Division through most of the game. By the end of the game however, the B’s proved just how topsy-turvy the NHL’s worst division (best on record) really is. The rival Canadiens, who with a win would at least […]

Habs Handle Bruins, 4-3

The Bruins were forced to play catch-up, almost from the first minute of action Thursday night in Montreal.  The B’s would never catch the Habs however, falling to the Canadiens, 4-3 at Bell Centre.  The win snapped a season-long three-game losing streak for Montreal, while the Bruins squandered their chance to tie the Canadiens atop […]
