Bruins Beat Senators Despite Being Outshot 45-27

In his first start as a Bruin, Anton Khudobin was brilliant with 44 saves on 45 shots.  Khudobin’s first NHL start since January 18th 2011 makes you wonder why the B’s wasted money on signing a guy like Marty Turco. The Bruins opened up the game scoring their first goal at 10:36 of the first […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

Just another week to go, and it’s playoffs time! The final standings are really starting to take shape much more than ever before, but the lower seeds are still very much up for grabs. Set teams are starting to prepare for the postseason while contenders are still making their moves just to get a spot, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

It’s almost time for the playoffs to begin. There’s certainly no shortage of close contests, and nobody’s giving way easily at all. And this far along, only the top team in each conference has so much as clinched a playoff spot. The action the rest of the way is sure to be cutthroat, so let’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 23

Only a few weeks remain in the season, and there’s barely more than 10 games left per team. Both conferences have now opened up at #1, but it’s still a race for all fringe teams involved. Half the divisions are still very much in play as well, so there’s a lot to fight for still. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 22

Another week down and the standings aren’t much closer. Both #3 seeds are benefiting from being a division leader, and those on the outside looking in don’t have far to go. Only the Canucks and Rangers can rest easy as far as division leads go; that’s about the only thing that’s safe right now. With […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 21

March is here, and the season is really starting to wind down. It’s still very close in both conferences nearly all around. Only the Rangers are capable of cruising down the stretch East-wise, but even that won’t happen with the President’s Trophy being hotly contested as well. Four divisions are still tightly up for grabs […]

Bruins Shut Out at Home, 1-0 to the Senators

The Senators came into Boston and shut the Bruins out 1-0. Erik Karlsson scored the only goal of the game on the power play in the first period. The Bruins had 32 shots on goal, but once again struggled to put goals on the board. The power play unit went 0-4, including a last chance in […]

Bruins Survive Late Meltdown to Down Senators

It was a tough start and finish for Boston, but they had enough meat in the middle to finish off the win in Ottawa, 5-3. Boston did get one chance with immediate pressure, but did nothing with it except give up pressure themselves. Erik Karlsson took advantage, surprising Tim Thomas just 1:10 into the game. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 20

A full 20 weeks into the season, and the standings are still bunched up, Rangers aside. Divisions are tight, #8 seeds are tight and the President’s Trophy is tight (the only close race involving the Rangers). So much could change in the blink of an eye, let alone the remaining 20+ games, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 19

We’re well into February, and there’s certainly no shortage of drama. The Rangers are leaving the rest of the East in their dust, but the rest of the conference is dog piling over each other. It’s the same way out west, except no spot is safe there. New York is certainly the team to beat, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 17

Now that we’re into February, time is beginning to become a factor for teams that need to make up ground; teams have anywhere from 29 to 34 games remaining before the playoffs begin, and while it’s not yet time for desperation to set in, concern is starting to creep up. With teams like Detroit and […]

Bruins Start 2nd Half With Win Against Ottawa 4-3

The Bruins started the second half of the season at home against Ottawa with a win 4-3. The Senators played the Bruins tough, which is not a surprise with a huge improvement from last season for them. With goals from Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Milan Lucic, and Brad Marchand along with 30 saves from Tim […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 15

January is almost over, and every team has passed the halfway point of the season. Teams are still jostling positions and just about every race is very close. New teams are making playoff waves, further adding to the excitement of the times. Anything could still happen, so let’s look at what would happen if the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 14

We’re already well into the new year, and it’s about the half-way point for the NHL season, too. The Rangers are continuing to make progress. The Penguins are continuing to do the opposite. It’s still very close between #8/#9 in both conferences as well, which will make for some heated battles down the stretch. There […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 13

There have been some big changes in the past week. Both conferences have new leaders. Ottawa and Washington are making waves. Los Angeles is even peeking into the bracket. Teams like Vancouver are improving their leads all around the league. Other races remain tight, though, especially the Wildcard races, so let’s look at what would […]
