Ryder, Bruins Even Up Series With OT Win Over Canadiens

Do you believe in miracles? Cliche, I know. But, the Bruins just spent a couple days hanging out in Lake Placid, New York at the site of the Miracle on Ice, so the context is there. And with a second straight win in Montreal on Thursday night, it’s safe to call the Bruins’ turnaround thus […]

Poll of the Week: Who Do You Hate More, the New York Knicks or the Montreal Canadiens?

The NBA and NHL playoffs are under way and the local teams are matched up with longtime rivals in the first round. The Bruins face their nemeses, the Montreal Canadiens, while the Celtics square off against the New York Knicks. With the season on the line, the rivalries are hotter than ever. Which of these […]

Don’t Give Up on the Bruins Just Yet

It’s painfully obvious that the Bruins didn’t play their best hockey the first two playoff games.  Down 2-0 in their opening playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens, things were looking bleak for our Bruins considering the team has never won a playoff series after dropping the first two games (0-26). Most of the fans, who […]

Bruins Score Early, Hang on for 4-2 Victory (Finally)

It’s not over til…it’s actually over. The Boston Bruins made sure to make a statement Monday night in Montreal as they headed into Game 3 down 2-0 in the series. The Bruins came out strong in one of the toughest rinks to play at already in the hole and held on to get the 4-2 […]

It’s Time to Panic: Bruins Drop Game 2 To Habs

Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara was a late scratch Saturday night against the Canadiens in Game 2 due to severe dehydration, and the B’s had an extremely difficult time adapting to life without their captain. The Canadiens, already armed with a 1-0 series lead, took advantage of the Chara-less B’s defense and scored two goals in […]

Zdeno Chara Hospitalized for Dehydration

Zdeno Chara was hospitalized Friday for dehydration. The Bruins confirmed this, and that Chara was still being attended to by their medical staff. Chara participated in Friday’s skate, but his status for Game 2 Saturday in Boston is up in the air. Chara played 25:06 in Game 1, but was more sluggish than usual, and […]

Bruins Drop Game 1 To Canadiens, 2-0

With the TD Garden feeling the most electric it had felt in decades before the game, the Bruins let loose a lackluster performance to fall to the  Montreal Canadiens 2-0 in their playoff opener Thursday night. Montreal Canadien Brian Gionta had a game of a lifetime by scoring the game’s only two goals, including one […]

Why I Hate the Montreal Canadiens

The regular season is over and our Boston Bruins proved that they can hang with the big boys in the conference, finishing with the #3 seed.  Now it’s time for the playoffs, and their first opponent…the Montreal Canadiens. I am a proud American and love my country.  I am forever thankful to my forefathers in […]

Bruins to Pick 9th in 2011 NHL Draft

With the playoffs about to start, and the focus clearly on the Montreal Canadiens, the Boston Bruins learned that they will pick ninth overall in the 2011 NHL Draft on June 24th.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 26

After a long season, the playoff bracket will be set Sunday night, quite possibly in the final game between Dallas in Minnesota. Even with half a week to go, only the three Western divisions have been clinched; no other Western slot has been clinched. Buffalo and New York are still hanging onto their spots, but […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

It’s almost time for the playoffs, and five of the spots have been locked up so far. But only Vancouver has clinched a division, and they’ve even clinched their conference, and their magic number is down to four points to clinch the President’s Trophy. It’s still pretty packed out West otherwise, though Chicago and the […]

Bruins Hab Not Looked Better Against Montreal

Montreal came to Boston looking to make a statement, and instead they laid a giant egg. They collapsed like the U.S. economy. And after losing to Boston 7-0, Montreal’s divisional hopes may have gone up in smoke. There was sure a lot to salivate over, so let’s get to it. It didn’t take long for […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Thursday March 24th

There’s a slightly important hockey game happening at the TD Garden this evening… you may have already heard about it. Tonight, the sixth and final meeting of two storied rivals hits Causeway Street with Northeast Division supremacy lying in the balance, as the Bruins (40-22-10) host the hated Montreal Canadiens (40-27-7). There sure is plenty […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

No more than ten games remain for anyone, yet only three playoff spots have been officially wrapped up, and only one of those a division. The excitement continues to be in the middle of the West’s pack, where three points separate #5 from #10. A maximum of three points separate any playoff team from the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 23

We’re coming up on the last 10 games of the season, and it’s just as exciting as it ever was. If it weren’t for those games in hand, Philadelphia would be in trouble. Vancouver isn’t too far away from clinching that President’s Trophy. It’s still a logjam out West, and Anaheim is just one win […]
