Video: Michael Ryder Dents Stanley Cup in Newfoundland

It was Michael Ryder’s day with the Stanley Cup the other day, and he brought it to his hometown in Newfoundland. Harmless, right? Not if you’re the Cup. Ryder, now with the Dallas Stars, brought the Cup over to a table to take pictures with it, and when he let go…

Michael Ryder Signs With Stars; Bruins Ink Benoit Pouliot

It was a busy first day in the NHL free agency period, and it started with a splash for the Bruins, who lost winger Michael Ryder to the Dallas Stars. They did pick up another former Canadien though, signing 24-year-old Benoit Pouliot to a one-year, $1.1 million deal. Ryder Seeing Stars Ryder signed a two-year, […]

Raffi Torres Goal with 18.5 Left in Third Gives Canucks Stanley Cup Game One Victory

It was a classic goalie battle Wednesday night as the Stanley Cup finals began at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. No Canuck could get past Tim Thomas, but neither could any Bruin get past Robert Luongo. Both were impenetrable walls, denying any and every shot. Sticks, skates, helmets, gloves, whatever it took to block the puck. […]

Ryder, Bruins Even Up Series With OT Win Over Canadiens

Do you believe in miracles? Cliche, I know. But, the Bruins just spent a couple days hanging out in Lake Placid, New York at the site of the Miracle on Ice, so the context is there. And with a second straight win in Montreal on Thursday night, it’s safe to call the Bruins’ turnaround thus […]

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 Utterly Collapse Against New York

Still in the hunt for a top seed, Boston decided they didn’t want it, and dropped to the New York Rangers 5-3. That was after getting a 3-0 lead. Sound like a certain Game 7? In this case, Boston controlled the 1st period, winning the shot battle 19-5. They didn’t strike until late in the […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Rangers, Monday April 4th

With just four games left on the regular season docket, the Bruins (44-23-11) travel to “the other Garden” tonight to face off with Original Six rival, the New York Rangers (42-32-5). The Northeast Division title may now be wrapped up for the Black and Gold, but there’s still a lot up for grabs in terms […]

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. Boston got started quickly, tucking the puck in for a goal during a skirmish in front of Atlanta’s net 4:34 in. But Atlanta answered on the power play later in the period, after Tuukka […]

Once More, Bruins Can’t Figure Out Maple Leafs

In trying to keep pace with Philadelphia and Washington, Boston instead couldn’t keep pace with Toronto, losing at home 4-3 in a shootout. The two teams were relatively even in the 1st Period, with the only goal coming on a wrist shot from Toronto’s Luke Schenn. Toronto also out-shot Boston by one in the period, […]

Bruins Don’t Even Try, Lose in Toronto

A couple of pockets of pressure didn’t do anything for the Bruins, who laid down for the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 5-2 loss north of the border. Tim Thomas made a couple of good saves about 6:15 in, and another with 12:36 remaining, but was beaten with 10:16 left in the 1st Period on […]

Bruins Edge Edmonton For Fifth Straight Win, 3-2

After a huge 3-1 victory in Vancouver Saturday night over the league-leading Canucks, I wasn’t going to be surprised if the Bruins laid an egg on Sunday night against the lowly Edmonton Oilers. But instead, after falling behind early in the game, Tuukka Rask and the Bruins’ defense rose to the occasion, coming back to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Hurricanes, Tuesday January 18th

The Bruins (25-13-7) hit the road this evening, heading south to Raleigh to take on a familiar foe, the Carolina Hurricanes (22-17-6). It was just over 24 hours ago that the B’s beat down the ‘Canes at TD Garden, wrapping up a four-game homestand with a 7-0 trouncing of Carolina. There were all sorts of […]

Bruins Can’t Hold Off Tough Penguins Front

With such a tough schedule, you wondered how long the Bruins could keep it up. After such a crazy game against Philly, Pittsburgh let the Bruins back in the game, but won in the end 3-2. Boston opened with a flurry in the first minute, but couldn’t take the quick edge. They even got a […]
