Video: Milan Lucic Not Suspended for Hit on Ryan Miller

There is no doubt that Milan Lucic’s hit (yes, it was a hit, not a collision) on Buffalo Sabres and Team USA goaltender was stupid, dangerous, avoidable and a suspendable penalty (and not just because Miller is a goalie). However, despite Miller’s resulting concussion, Lucic was not suspended Monday after speaking with league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan, […]

Bruins’ November Roll Continues Against Buffalo

Boston just can’t be beaten lately. Not even close. On Saturday, their next victim was Buffalo. The Sabres lost 6-2, in a rough showing. It didn’t start that way, though. Boston had the majority of shots in the 1st, though it was Buffalo who struck first blood at 5:38 on a wrist shot from Thomas […]

Triple-Double: Bruins Hang Six Goals on Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers survived the Boston Bruins’ first two-goal period Thursday night at the TD Garden. They couldn’t survive the second. Or the third. The Bruins scored twice in all three periods Thursday, powering them to a 6-3 victory over the once-streaking Oilers. The Bruins have now scored 24 goals in their last four games.

Thank You Kessel! Seguin’s Hat Trick Lifts Bruins Over Leafs

There’s something about Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs that brings the best out of the Bruins, even if they got off to an early-season funk. The Maple Leafs lead the Northeast, and the Bruins are the cellar-dwellers, but that doesn’t seem to matter when the two teams take the ice. Behind the first […]

Bruins Find Spark, Defeat Senators

On a great offensive night, the Bruins turned around their recent struggles with a nice 5-3 win against Ottawa. Boston had been struggling coming into action on Tuesday night, and needed a strong performance to begin turning their season around. They had lost their previous two games to Montreal, and came into the game against […]

Bruins Mostly Flat in Loss in Montreal

Boston’s highly disappointing start to the season continued Saturday in Montreal, as they fell 4-2 to the hated Habs. The Bruins had a few moments, though for the most part they were rather lackluster. After some early energy, Boston got sloppy with the puck. After some assistance from the referees on a questionable holding call […]

Bruins’ Comeback Attempt Falls Short; Sharks Win 4-2

It was a sloppy game for a good chunk of the night for the Bruins, and it resulted in a 4-2 loss to San Jose. Boston has been getting off to sluggish starts in the season and in individual games lately, and they did it again, surrendering a goal just 1:12 into the game off […]

Strong Power Play Helps Bruins Dominate Maple Leafs

When Shawn Thornton threw down with Toronto Maple Leaf right winger Colton Orr early in the Bruins’ game Thursday night at the TD Garden, he sent a clear message: No more listless hockey. We’re fighting back. And boy, did they ever. Four different Bruins posted three-point games, and two first-period power play goals kick-started a […]

Milan Hejduk Hands Rask First Loss of Season

The Bruins won over 60 percent of their faceoffs Monday against the Colorado Avalanche at the TD Garden. One of the few they lost came back to haunt them. Avalanche right winger Milan Hejduk scored with eight minutes gone in the third after teammate Peter Mueller won a faceoff in the Bruins’ zone, and goalkeeper […]

So, what happened to Milan Lucic and his girlfriend Brittany Carnegie early Tuesday morning in the North End? According to a Boston police report, witnesses told police that they heard Lucic yelling at his girlfriend and heard “what sounded like a slap,” though no one saw it. One witness told police they saw Lucic throw […]

Blown Tires: 3 1st-Period Goals Chase Luongo from Game 6 as Bruins Force Game 7

Lord Stanley’s Cup came to Boston, and all the Vancouver Canucks needed to do to win it Monday night at the Garden was play the same punishing offense and fantastic goal-tending that had won them Game 5 last Friday. Only problem: no one told Roberto Luongo. Luongo gave up three easy goals within the first […]

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. […]

Lightning’s 3 Power Play Goals Against Bruins Force Game 7

Game Summary We wouldn’t have it any other way… Right? The Tampa Bay Lighting forced a Game 7 against the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals following their 5-4 victory Wednesday night. The Bruins penalty kill was victimized three times by the vaunted Tampa Bay attack. Boston fell behind instantaneously on a Teddy Purcell blast off a […]

Two-Goal Second Period Gives Thomas, Bruins 3-2 Lead In Eastern Conference Finals

The Tampa Bay Lightning held the Boston Bruins to just eight shots in the second period of Monday’s Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals at the TD Garden. The Bruins only needed two. Goals by Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand in the second period gave the Bruins the lead, and Tim Thomas stopped 33 […]
