Video: Andrew Ference Not Suspended For Hit On Jeff Halpern

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will not be suspended by the league on Thursday, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told reporters on Thursday. Ference’s shoulder check on Montreal’s Jeff Halpern in the third period of the B’s epic Game 7 win sent the Hab to the lockerroom. You may remember that Ference was fined $2,500 earlier in […]

Bruins Don’t Make It Easy on Themselves, or Fans

“How about the B’s, man? Back from the dead,” I emphatically began to tell my buddy Matt. “Definitely going to write abo—,” I slowly stopped short and noticed Matt’s glaring eyes. He quickly interjected, “No! Don’t, ya–ya- can’t write about it.” Hmm. Admittedly, I don’t bleed black and gold (or is it yellow?) as much […]

The Price is Wrong Montreal! Bruins Top Habs to Finally Win a Game 7

Game 7. These two words can change millions of lives across the globe. Two teams that carry the hearts of millions of fans on their back, face off against each other and only one can move on. This is what hockey is all about: the do or die moments where one small piece of circular rubber can […]

No More Game 7′s! Bruins Need to Take Series In Six

Bruins Win Double OT Thriller to Seize Series Lead

In what could easily be both the most agonizing and the most thrilling game of the season, the Boston Bruins took a 3-2 series lead over the hated Montreal Canadiens in 89:03 of hockey. Both teams had a very difficult time getting anything done, thanks to both goalies playing extremely hard. Boston had a slight […]

Video: Andrew Ference Fined $2,500 For Flipping Off Montreal

After scoring a goal in Game 4, Andrew Ference of the Boston Bruins told the fans in Montreal what he and us really think of them. As a result, the NHL fined him $2,500 for making an obscene gesture. Whatever. That’s just 1/900 (0.111…%) of his $2.25 million annual salary, which he makes in just […]

Sports Media Musings: Jack Edwards, Sports Hub, WEEI, ESPN

Excuse me, while I channel my inner Richard Deitsch… While watching Game 2 of the Spurs/Grizzlies series on NBA TV Wednesday night, I noticed the announcers were based in San Antonio. This was made apparent right from the moment Matt Bonner hit a 3-point shot and the call was something along the lines of, “Red-Rocket for three…Yes!” […]

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 […]
