Thomas Relieves Injured Rask, Falters Against Islanders

The Boston Bruins have needed no one’s help to play lazy, lackadaisical, .500 hockey since mid-January. But Saturday afternoon against the New York Islanders, they got a little help from the referees. A possibly uncalled icing penalty late in the third led to a tie-breaking goal by center John Tavares, and Evgeni Nabokov saved 32 […]

Bruins Survive Late Meltdown to Down Senators

It was a tough start and finish for Boston, but they had enough meat in the middle to finish off the win in Ottawa, 5-3. Boston did get one chance with immediate pressure, but did nothing with it except give up pressure themselves. Erik Karlsson took advantage, surprising Tim Thomas just 1:10 into the game. […]

Bruins Bring Offense to St. Louis, Beat Blues 4-2

The Bruins beat the Blues 4-2 in regulation. Boston had an offensive explosion in the first period with three goals, but the Blues answered with two goals of their own in the first 20 minutes. Brad Marchand added a third period goal on a breakaway to seal the deal, his second goal of the game. […]

Lundqvist Shuts Out Bruins; Rangers Extend East Lead

If love was in the air on Valentine’s Day at the TD Garden Tuesday night, the Bruins weren’t feeling it. They had a chance to send the Garden faithful home happy by making up some ground on the East-leading New York Rangers, but instead, the B’s lost 3-0. The Rangers have now won their fourth […]

Bruins Turn Predators Into Prey in Saturday Matinee

The Bruins had to hold their breath late into another game on their shaky stretch, but in the end, they got the job done against Nashville, 4-3, in a shootout. The Bruins did keep up the offense, but Tim Thomas didn’t have the best day against a Nashville offense that didn’t get more than seven […]

Sabres Crush Both Rask and Thomas in Buffalo

The Buffalo Sabres played Wednesday’s game as a team desperately needing wins to keep its playoff hopes alive should: intelligent but physical, controlled but aggressive. The Boston Bruins played as a team with a chance at the Eastern Conference’s top spot should not: lazy, disorganized, brainless. Who do you think won? The Sabres scored twice […]

David Krejci Demoted to Third Line Center

Bruins fans have gotten use to seeing David Krejci centering a line with Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton on his wings. With Horton out of the line up due to a concussion, Rich Peverley jumped up to fill his spot. The first and only game that the Lucic-Krejci-Peverley played together was a loss against Pittsburgh, all three […]

Bruins Start 2nd Half With Win Against Ottawa 4-3

The Bruins started the second half of the season at home against Ottawa with a win 4-3. The Senators played the Bruins tough, which is not a surprise with a huge improvement from last season for them. With goals from Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Milan Lucic, and Brad Marchand along with 30 saves from Tim […]

Bruins Beat Flyers in Shootout, Now 1st in Eastern Conference

The Boston Bruins (31-13-2) and Philadelphia Flyers (28-14-5) sure did turn some heads on Sunday afternoon. Sure the attention wasn’t all theirs at 3 pm eastern time, but a dramatic 6-5 Bruins shootout win gave Boston fans just another thing to celebrate on a day that featured wins from the Celtics and Patriots. 1st Period […]

Bruins Fall to Hurricanes, Get Swept in Season Series

The Bruins lost a tough game to the Hurricanes in Carolina 4-2 on Saturday night. Carolina responded to goals by Boston twice and added an empty net goal to seal the deal. The Hurricanes are having a down season, but were ready to play and were helped further by sloppy play by the Bruins. Two Bruins giveaways […]

Bruins Get Lucky, Hold Off Canadiens For 2-1 Win

For the first time in recent memory, the Bruins and Canadiens played a meaningless game. Why? Well, simply put, the Canadiens suck this season. Montreal is 12th in the Eastern Conference and has a losing record. They entered the game 16 (!!!) points behind the Bruins in the East. Things are so bad, they traded […]

Canucks Spoil Hockey Day in New England, Bruins Fall to Canucks 4-3

The highly anticipated Stanley Cup rematch was everything we thought it would be as (arguably) the two best teams in the NHL faced off for the only time this season. The Canucks went to work on the power play today scoring all four goals on the man advantage and Boston lost a close one 4-3. Two game […]

Bruins Smother Flames With Nine Goals, Twelve Point-Scoring Players

As a young boy, I played on a recreation-league soccer team in Brookline, Mass. We weren’t very good, but I liked the team’s name: the Flames. I’m pretty sure we could’ve given the Boston Bruins a better game than the Calgary Flames gave them Thursday night at TD Garden. Patrice Bergeron and Nathan Horton each […]

Bruins Continue Dominance, Beat Canadiens 3-2

The Bruins (22-9-1) came into action on Monday night as hot as ever after a dominating 6-0 win last time out in Philadelphia. They turned their attention to their longtime rivals, the Montreal Canadiens (13-14-7)who have had a rough season and were in need of a change. That came in the form of the firing […]

Bruins Roll in Philadelphia, Take Over Top Spot in Eastern Conference

Zdeno Chara made his return to the Bruins line up today as the Bruins took down the Flyers 6-0 in Philadelphia. The Bruins had a great start to the game when Benoit Pouliot re-directed a nice pass from Rich Peverley 27 seconds into the game. Zdeno Chara made sure his return was noticed when he […]
