Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Wednesday April 6th

The Bruins (44-24-11) return home to TD Garden to host another team from the Empire State tonight, as the New York Islanders (30-37-12) come to Boston. On Monday night, the B’s traveled to the Big Apple to face off with the Rangers. The first 30 minutes went according to plan, earning themselves a three goal […]

Bruins Drop Their Fourth Straight After Blowing Lead to Islanders, Lose 4-2

Winning streaks aren’t meant to last forever, but when they end, you certainly don’t expect to start on a losing streak. Unfortunately for the Boston Bruins, that’s exactly what’s happened as they dropped their fourth straight game after posting a seven-game winning streak, losing to the New York Islanders 4-2 on Long Island Friday night. […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Friday March 11th

With just 15 games left in their regular season, the Bruins (38-20-9) hope to right the ship tonight on Long Island, where they will kick off their four-game road trip at Nassau Coliseum against the New York Islanders (26-32-10). It’s been a long, bumpy road this week for the Black and Gold, coupling two division […]

Bruins Back on Track With 6-3 Win Over Islanders

Two streaks came to an end last night on Long Island, as the B’s snapped their longest losing streak of the season at three, beating the red hot New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, 6-3. They also ended New York’s season-long four-game win streak. The Boston win kicked off their six-game road trip in grand […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Thursday February 17th

The Bruins (31-19-7) will kick off their six-game road trip this evening on Long Island, as they visit Nassau Colisseum to take on the red hot New York Islanders (21-29-7). Yes, you read that right… the RED HOT New York Islanders! Winners of four straight and five of their last six, the Islanders have dug […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Thursday December 9th

The Bruins (15-8-3) continue their homestand at TD Garden this evening, hosting the worst team in the NHL, the New York Islanders (5-15-5). Things don’t get much worse for the Islanders and their fans, if they have any fans left. The team started with a surprising 4-1-2 mark after their first seven games, actually showing […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 3

After another week, things have been shaken up quite a bit. The conferences are now topped by the Predators and the Habs (or as we in Boston like to call them, Hab nots; let’s get that to catch on, people). The Devils continue to serve as basement dwellers, on pace for 41 points, as opposed […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 2

Another week in, and the Maple Leafs are going strong. The Blackhawks are back on top out West, though their three closest competitors all have three games in hand, down by three points. That’s 333, which when doubled, means the Devils are currently in last place in the entire NHL. They’re followed by Ottawa and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

Isn’t the first week great? It’s the only time of a year that we get to see things like the Maple Leafs as the best team in the league. And it’s the one time of the year when Marty Brodeur is still working out the kinks, and the Bruins, just like the rest of the […]

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 […]

Bruins Pull Out Another Squeaker in New York

It wasn’t always pretty, but the Bruins pulled out a close 3-2 victory over the Islanders. The Bruins got an early power play, 1:27 in, but could do nothing with it. They largely did nothing despite many 1st period opportunities (they out-shot New York 16-4 in the period), but they did manage to strike first […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Saturday 3-6

Winners of five or their last six, the Bruins (28-23-11) take their show on the road for seven straight games, beginning with this afternoon’s game on Long Island to face the slumping New York Islanders. The seven-game roadie marks the longest road trip since the ’03-’04 season for the B’s. Boston is coming off a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 16

In the past week, the Devils have amassed a rare three-game losing streak, the Sabres are making their push, and the Bruins are failing miserably. The West has seen the Blackhawks taking another lead over the Sharks, whereas the Flames have lost four in a row and are in danger of losing their spot. In […]

Bruins Offense Falls Short Against Islanders in OT

“We had so many chances,” David Krejci said. “We put the puck on the net. … We just couldn’t get any in the net. One bad break in overtime and it ended up in our end.” You get all the information you need about the Bruins-Islanders game Saturday night in the above quote from David […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 7

Things are picking up. All five Atlantic teams are in line for playoff spots. Only one division features a point differential between 1st and 2nd of more than four points. Only one of the six Canadian teams is up for a slot. And to top it all off, five out of eight current series would […]
