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 […]

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 […]

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 Take Division After First Shootout Win

Boston never led in the game. They were 0-3 in shootouts on the season. But they were up against the lowly Panthers, and the Bruins finally were able to take control in a shootout and the Northeast Division by beating Florida 3-2 in said shootout. Both teams got double-digit shots on goal in each of […]

Thornton Helps Bruins Thrash Atlanta 4-1

Enforcer Shawn Thornton entered this season with 15 career goals, and had just one in 74 games last season. Simply put, his job on the ice regularly does not involve scoring…until now. Thornton scored his career-high sixth and seventh goals of the season (in just 33 games) to help lead the Bruins past the Thrashers […]

Ducks Send Bruins Flying Down South

All they want for Chirstmas is to find their scoring touch again. The Boston Bruins continued to struggle scoring goals Monday night against the Anaheim Ducks as the Ducks earned the 3-0 shutout victory in Boston. It’s not like Boston didn’t have a chance to score; it just so happens that all 45 of their […]

Late Boston Penalty Turns Zero Toronto Points Into Two

Boston was sailing on their way to another victory with just minutes remaining. But a late holding call on Patrice Bergeron allowed Toronto to get a major advantage and score with less than a minute to go, and eventually win the game in a shootout. What is it with Boston teams losing to Toronto teams […]

Stamkos Scores 20th Goal, Bolts Beat Bruins 3-1

The Tampa Bay Lightning handed the Bruins just their second road loss of the season Monday night, winning handily over Boston, 3-1 at St. Pete Times Forum. Honestly, this game wasn’t even as close as the score may indicate, as the ‘Ning took it to the B’s, especially in the second period. Tampa was far […]

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 […]

Thomas Outclasses Brodeur, Bruins Beat Devils

In a bit of a skid (losers of two straight overall and three straight at home), the Bruins needed to win on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils, even though it is just November. “I personally approached it as a must-win, and I think the team did, too,” Tim Thomas said. “We needed to […]

Bruins Blow Three-Goal Comeback, Lose to Capitals 5-3

In a game worthy of many differing headlines, the visiting Boston Bruins lost 5-3 to the Washington Capitals after blowing a three-goal comeback late in the third period. Having beaten Washington 3-1 and 4-1 earlier this season, the Bruins entered the game overconfident and flat, recovered, but failed to keep up with the speedy Capitals. […]

Thomas Not Immortal, Bruins Still Win

It wasn’t the best defensive stand, but with Ryan Miller out with lower body issues, the Bruins sprung out like a trap door spider to claim a 5-2 victory in Buffalo. Boston wasted no time going to work on the power play. The only thing was, it was Buffalo’s power play. With Michael Ryder in […]

Bruins Take Care of Devils 4-1

I do believe that the someone told the Bruins to work on their offense this off-season and so far it’s working. After their first two regular-season games over in Prague against the Phoenix Coyotes, the B’s came back to North America and came back strong. Boston had it’s first game in the States in New […]

Bruins 2010-2011 Preview: Forwards

When it comes to what will fuel the Bruins this season, look no further than the forwards. Regarded as one of the worst offensive teams in the league last year, the Bruins hope to find their way back into the elite group of offensive teams in the NHL. Two years ago, the Bruins had one […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 2

On Wednesday, we showed the first four things to watch for as the Bruins open camp. While the way the 2009-2010 Bruins season ended really stung, we are turning the page to a new era of Boston Bruins hockey. One way to get that started is with new talent, like Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. […]
