If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 3

Another week into the season and we’re getting an early sense of who might pull ahead later, though it is still close. Every team now has at least one win, and Washington is the only perfect team left (the only one without any sort of loss, even). There continue to be several surprising teams, both […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 2

Another week has gone by, and more surprising teams are poking their heads in the race. While every has at least a point, only two remain perfect. Already, all but eight teams have been involved in shootouts. It’s been a rough start for both participants in last year’s Stanley Cup Finals. That means the field […]

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. This pick is the last of two first round picksthat the Bruins received by trading  Phil Kessel to Toronto in the summer of 2009.   With […]

Bruins Drop Season Finale, Turn Focus to Montreal

In their final game of the regular season, the Bruins lost 3-2 to the Devils after taking some of the game off, but since 15 of the 16 seeds had already been wrapped up (including all eight East slots), they could afford to get the extra rest. New Jersey got on the board just 1:47 […]

Chara Helps Bruins to 4-1 Win Over Devils

Consistency is the key in the NHL. For some teams, it’s like getting up in the morning. For others, it’s like trying to ride a bike again, but you just can’t stay up. The Boston Bruins have seemed like the latter. The team has looked like a Stanley Cup caliber team at times, but then […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Tuesday March 22nd

Hoping that a little home cooking will help the team get back to some winning ways, the Bruins (39-22-10) kick off a three-game homestand tonight on Causeway Street when they host the resurgent New Jersey Devils (34-34-4) at TD Garden. The Bruins are reeling after an embarrassing 5-2 loss Saturday night up in Toronto. Winners […]

Former Bruins Head Coach Pat Burns Passes Away at 58

Pat Burns, the head coach of the Boston Bruins from 1997-2000, passed away on November 19, 2010, at the age of 58 after a battle with lung cancer. The three-time Jack Adams Award-winner coached four different NHL teams over 14 seasons, accumulating a 501-350-161-14 record and a Stanley Cup Final victory in 2003 with the […]

Thomas Outclasses Brodeur, Bruins Beat Devils

In a bit of a skid (losers of two straight overall and three straight at home), the Bruins needed to win on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils, even though it is just November. “I personally approached it as a must-win, and I think the team did, too,” Tim Thomas said. “We needed to […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Monday November 15th

The Bruins (8-5-1) will try to snap out of their recent funk tonight at TD Garden, when they host the very funky New Jersey Devils (5-10-2), a team that is off to one of their worst starts in franchise history. Boston’s coming off their first shutout of the season, on the wrong end of a […]

Bruins Take Care of Devils 4-1

I do believe that the someone told the Bruins to work on their offense this off-season and so far it’s working. After their first two regular-season games over in Prague against the Phoenix Coyotes, the B’s came back to North America and came back strong. Boston had it’s first game in the States in New […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins vs. Devils, Saturday October 16th

The Bruins (1-1-0) are back on American soil after earning a split of their two tilts with the Phoenix Coyotes in Prague last weekend. After a long break this week to get reacclimated, the B’s return to the ice Saturday night in New Jersey to take on Ilya Kovalchuk and the Devils (1-3-1). Time to […]

Lets Get Puck’d: NHL Eastern Conference Preview

The puck drops on yet another NHL hockey season this week, and with so much anticipation and expectation building about our local Bruins team, it felt like quite the long summer having to wait it out before the B’s get their chance at erasing the painfully embarrassing playoff exit last spring. Boston has retooled their […]

The Blackhawks are pushing, but the Capitals have finished #1 on our rankings for the fifth straight poll, and for the fourth straight time it has been unanimous. Only the Kings have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

Can you believe the season ends this Sunday, and you won’t see this article again until October? Can you believe the Capital have clinched the President’s Trophy, and when they did so, only one other team had even clinched a division? After Tuesday, the West is all wrapped up in terms of the elite eight, […]

Bruins Sneak by Devils in OT

When the Bruins visited the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night, did anyone expect a high-scoring game? Didn’t think so. Coming off a tough 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres the night before, the Bruins were able to force overtime and pull of the 1-0 win in NJ. Boston is fighting to stay in the playoff hunt, […]
