A Few Things That Don Sweeney Needs to Address Right Away

On Wednesday, the Bruins officially announced that Don Sweeney will be their new General Manager. This makes him the eighth GM in Bruins history. This past season ended in disaster, just missing the playoffs then firing GM Peter Chiarelli shortly after, and all the rumors about Claude Julien getting fired as well. So Sweeney has […]

Trading Lucic to the Oilers Makes Sense for Both Sides

The Edmonton Oilers announced on Friday that they have signed former Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli as their General Manager and President of Hockey Operations. After his 9 year tenure at the helm of the S.S. Bruins, Chiarelli will get a fresh start in Edmonton. First off, good for Peter Chiarelli. Although he could be frustrating […]

Season in Review: 2014-15 Boston Bruins

Whenever a team enters a season as a favorite to be a Stanley Cup Contender and misses the playoffs, serious questions need to be asked. The Bruins, fresh of a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2013 and a President’s Trophy in 2014 looked primed to make some serious noise in 2015. Despite losing Jarome Iginla […]

The Celtics or the Bruins? Who’s the Bigger Ticket at the Garden?

I’m not talking about the price of the ticket because both teams, along with every team in our great snowy city, charge too much for their tickets, but which of these teams is the more exciting one right now? At the beginning of the season it was easy to say the more exciting team throughout […]

Bruins Head into All-Star Break Playing Well

Despite dropping a 3-2 shootout decision to the Avalanche on Wednesday night, the Bruins head into the All-Star break playing some of their best hockey of the season. In their last eight games, they have won six and lost another in a shootout. They have registered points in nine of their last ten games overall. […]

Bruins Should Give Pastrnak Chance on Top Line

The Bruins recalled rookie forward David Pastrnak from the Providence Bruins of the AHL Tuesday morning. Pastrnak had spent the previous few weeks shining at the World Juniors Tournament for the Czech Republic. Pastrnak, the 25th overall pick for the Bruins in the 2014 draft, played in five games earlier this season for the Bruins […]

Why Taylor Hall Won’t be a Bruin

Earlier this week, TSN Analyst Darren Dreger reported that Edmonton’s Taylor Hall would be in play on the trade market as the Oilers train wreck of a franchise continues. The Bruins, who have been struggling just to land a playoff berth this season and seem to be lacking an identity, have been in the eye […]

Seth Griffith Proving Worth for Bruins

Entering the 2014-15 season, one of the biggest question marks on the Bruins roster was who would play right wing on the Milan Lucic/ David Krejci line. Loui Eriksson and Matt Fraser were early candidates but through two weeks another player has emerged to fill that role: Seth Griffith. The 21 year old is five […]

Why Matt Fraser Could be the Piece that Puts the Bruins Over the Top

When the Bruins traded young offensive star Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars in July 2013 they received an impressive haul in return. The two headliners of the deal were Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith, both of whom played extensively last year save for the time Eriksson missed due to injury. The Bruins also got […]

Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson Wants to Fight Chara, Lucic (ICYMI)

Well by now, most of you have probably gotten pretty tired of Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s antics as an athlete. As a New England Patriot, he never failed to disappoint people with his on field and off field behavior. However, Johnson was relatively quiet until earlier this week when he made comments directed toward Milan Lucic […]

Explanation or Excuse? Bruins Played Through Rash of Injuries

Maybe the Boston Bruins advancing to the Stanley Cup finals for the second straight year wasn’t such a guarantee after all. Or maybe that’s exactly what the Bruins want us to think. One day after getting unceremoniously ousted from the NHL playoffs by the Montreal Canadiens in a 3-1 Game 7 loss at home, the […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Lucic Causes Me to Throw Up on Dean Wormer

CLIFF NOTES * I have said for five years to trade Milan Lucic but they hang onto him because he hits an occasional guy, floats around the ice and scores some empty netters. One minute into the game he fanned in front of the net with a chance to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead. […]

Bruins Even Series with Third Period Comeback vs. Canadiens

After Bruins killer Thomas Vanek scored his second goal of the game to put the Montreal Canadiens up 3-1 with 13:30 left in the third period, Bruins forward Shawn Thornton told his teammates they needed a goal every five minutes to tie up the game. They did a little bit better than that. Two better, to […]

Subban, Canadiens Sink the Bruins in 2OT to Take Game 1

51 shots on net wasn’t enough to beat Carey Price as the Boston Bruins fell to the Montreal Canadiens, 4-3, in double overtime of Game 1. The Bruins battled back from behind twice in the game, scoring three goals in the third period to force the game into OT, but the Canadiens capitalized on a power […]

Bruins Eliminate Red Wings, Move on to Face Habs

The Bruins once again looked stellar in their game 5 domination over the Detroit Wings to close out the series with a 4-2 win and advance. Backed by offense provided by Loui Erikkson, Zdeno Chara, Milan Lucic and Jarome Iginla, they looked like the overall favorites that they are expected to be in terms of […]
