If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 6

We’re approaching the halfway point of the abbreviated season, and things are still entertaining as ever. Aside from the Blackhawks and Ducks, just about every seed in both conferences is up for grabs. In a season that’s nearly been halved, it’s still largely about games in hand, and how they’re used. And with the value […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Five weeks into the season, and Chicago remains just about the only sure thing right now. The East is stacked top to bottom, and the West isn’t much different. Even the other teams on the outside are shuffling around, trying to make their moves and occasionally making headway. It’s still tough as ever to predict […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 4

We’re already a month into the season, and things are still pretty close. Chicago and Anaheim are starting to carve a niche for themselves, but they still have a ways to go, and all other slots are still very much in play. Ties are plentiful, and both #8 seeds are very much in the air, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 3

Three weeks into the season now, and while the Blackhawks have started to build a bit of a lead for themselves, the rest of the field is up for grabs. Each conference has a team better than at least one division leader, so teams are jumping all over each other. The standings still have a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 2

The NHL season is well-underway, especially considering the greatly shortened length of the season. With that being said, the standings don’t look like they usually do, partly due to the low number of games played, but it also has a lot to do with the urgency felt by every team earlier than usual. The Maple […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

The NHL season is finally underway, and there’s already been plenty of tooth-and-nail action. Every team (except Washington) has won a game, three teams remain perfect and 12 teams are clustered together with four points, including eight in the East alone. So while everything’s so tight, let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs […]

Thomas Remains Perfect in Shootouts, Bruins beat Habs 4-3

The Bruins escaped Montreal with a shootout win 4-3. The Bruins took a 3-1 lead into the third period with goals from Andrew Ference, Benoit Pouliot and Patrice Bergeron, but later found themselves in a shootout. Sloppy play in the third period let the Habs back into the game, and nearly lost the game for […]

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 […]

Cammalleri Calls Canadiens “Losers,” Then Gets Traded During Bruins Game

“I can’t accept that we will display a losing attitude as we’re doing this year…We prepare for our games like losers. We play like losers. So it’s no wonder why we lose.” With those words earlier in the week, Michael Cammalleri really sealed his fate. After playing the first two periods of Thursday night’s game […]

Bruins Shut Out Canadiens 1-0

The Bruins came into the night 0-2 against Montreal this season and a chance to take the lead in the Northeast division. Boston looked hot riding an eight game winning streak, and Montreal failed to get back to back wins as the Bruins extended their winning streak to nine games with a 1-0 shutout win […]

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 […]

Loss to Habs Drops Bruins to Bottom of Eastern Conference

Let’s face it: the Bruins have received a pass so far this season. The Red Sox collapsed, drank beer, ate fried chicken, and were the talk of the town for weeks after the season. The Patriots, meanwhile, started 5-1 and appear destined for the playoffs. But, the Sox talk has subsided and the Pats are […]

Bruins Den: Consistently Inconsistent (Complete With Clichés)

They’re up, they’re down, they’re left, they’re right – for all it’s worth the Boston Bruins this season are as inconsistent as Windows ME and as unpredictable as your girlfriend after you say you just want to be friends. At 3-5-0 and two games left in the month, it’s highly possible the Bruins will finish […]

Montreal Police to Interview Zdeno Chara Over Max Pacioretty Hit

Remember back in March when Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara ran Canadiens winger Max Pacioretty hard into the boards? The momentum led Pacioretty’s head to slam into the stanchion, knocking him out and ending his season. Chara was tossed from the game but did not receive further punishment by the NHL. He did however, face a potential […]

Video: Jack Edwards’ Tea Party Speech After Bruins-Canadiens Game 7

If you watch hockey on NESN, you know what you get with Jack Edwards. He’s a pretty damn good play-by-play man. He knows the game. He also loves the Bruins and hates the Canadiens. He took his nerdy nature to a whole new level Wednesday night after the Game 7 win, hearkening back to the […]
