Bruins Beat Leafs Again, Point Streak At 14 Games

The last time the Bruins had a regulation loss (back on Oct. 29), the Red Sox were without a manager, Julian Edelman hadn’t been arrested yet, and the NBA was still in a lockout with no end in sight. That trend continued Saturday night, with the Bruins taking down the Maple Leafs for the fourth […]

Bruins Overcome Slow Start to Ground Jets

Winnipeg made some early noise, but in the end, Boston came roaring back to defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2. Tim Thomas made a great 5-hole save early on during the first Winnipeg power play on a tough shot, but the Jets later came roaring through the neutral zone before Boston knew what hit them, resulting […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Canes Storm Past Struggling B’s, 4-1

Fights are fantastic… but goals would be even better. Fists flew Tuesday night at TD Garden, with the Bruins racking up 70 penalty minutes on the night, the most since last February’s famously fight-filled feud with the Montreal Canadiens. The frustration level of the men wearing the spoked B has apparently bubbled over, and instead […]

Seguin Lifts Bruins to Shootout Win Over Blackhawks

Four games into the season, it appeared the Bruins were still drunk from celebrating their Stanley Cup win as they stumbled to a 1-3 record. Seven minutes into the third period of their fifth game, in Chicago against the Blackhawks on Saturday night, it appeared the B’s were on their way to another loss. That […]

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 […]

What’s Next for Nathan Horton?

Love that dirty water? So does Nathan Horton. So much so, that he had to bring it to Vancouver for the Bruins to win the Stanley Cup this past season. One of the best memories for Bruins’ fans will be Horton dumping TD Garden ice (melted into water) in front of the Bruins bench before […]

Bruins Back Home for Game 6 as Canucks Look to Seal the Deal

Home ice advantage remained as potent as ever in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Friday night, as the Vancouver Canucks edged out the Boston Bruins 1-0 to reclaim the series lead at 3-2. Fortunately for the B’s, they have one more chance to tie up the series and force a Game 7 when […]

GQ’s Jonah Keri Thinks Whole World Should Root Against Bruins

Jonah Keri says that no one outside of Boston wants the Bruins to win the Stanley Cup. His reasons include the snobbishness of Boston sports fans, regional rivalries with teams such as the Flyers and Rangers, and international solidarity between Vancouver and other Canadian cities. Keri says that essentially the entire city has long since […]

Poll of the Week: Should The Bruins Fight And/Or Bite Back?

In Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Alex Burrows of the Canucks was caught on video biting the finger of Boston’s Patrice Bergeron. Burrows was not suspended, and went on to post two goals and an assist in the next game, a 3-2 Vancouver overtime win. Vancouver’s Maxim Lapierre later taunted Bergeron, pretending to […]

Aaron Rome Suspended for Rest of Stanley Cup

Aaron Rome has been suspended for four games by the NHL for his hit on Nathan Horton in Game 3. Since, at most, only four games remain in the Stanley Cup, we won’t be seeing Rome until next year. The Bruins have already announced that Horton will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup due to […]
