Bruins Turn Predators Into Prey in Saturday Matinee

The Bruins had to hold their breath late into another game on their shaky stretch, but in the end, they got the job done against Nashville, 4-3, in a shootout. The Bruins did keep up the offense, but Tim Thomas didn’t have the best day against a Nashville offense that didn’t get more than seven […]

Tyler Seguin: Star in the Making

Tyler Seguin recently celebrated his birthday turning 20 years old. In Sunday’s win over Washington Seguin celebrated his 20th goal making him the first Bruin to hit that mark this season. What a difference a year can make: in 74 games last season Seguin had 22 points. This season Seguin has 44 points in 50 […]

Ward’s Shutout Gives Hurricanes First Season Sweep Over Bruins

The Boston Bruins did just about everything they could against the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night at the TD Garden. They won over 70 percent of their face-offs. They hit hard and often. And they ripped shot after shot after shot at goalie Cam Ward. They just couldn’t score. Ward saved all 47 shots against him […]

Brad Marchand Returns from Suspension Thursday in New Jersey

Brad Marchand has missed the last five games due to a suspension he received from the league for ducking a check against the Canucks.

Bruins Escape Florida with a 3-2 Win in Shootout

The Bruins took down the Panthers in the shootout 3-2 and are now 5-0-1 when playing more than 60 minutes. Patrice Bergeron had himself a night with two goals in regulation, he added a goal in the shoot out but it does not count for the hat trick. Tuukka Rask made big saves at big times helping the Bruins avoid a […]

Bruins Fall to Hurricanes, Get Swept in Season Series

The Bruins lost a tough game to the Hurricanes in Carolina 4-2 on Saturday night. Carolina responded to goals by Boston twice and added an empty net goal to seal the deal.

One of the best teams in the NHL, the Bruins, will be well-represented at the NHL All-Star Game in February. Joining goalie Tim Thomas, who is set to start in net, will be forward Tyler Seguin and defenseman Zdeno Chara. In just his second season, Seguin leads the B’s with 17 goals and 38 points […]

Bruins Explode in Third Period, Rally Past Jets

The Bruins came into their Tuesday night game with the Winnipeg Jets (20-16-5) looking to get back into the win column after a rough game and loss to the rival Vancouver Canucks on Saturday evening. They were without Brad Marchand, who received a controversial and highly publicized 5-game suspension for his hit on Sami Salo. […]

Benoit Pouliot Filling in During Brad Marchand’s Suspension

With Brad Marchand suspended for five games, that leaves an opportunity for Benoit Pouliot to play with Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin. Through Tuesday’s game against the Jets, Pouliot has eight goals and seven assists on the season, mostly playing on the third line with some power play time. The Bruins signed Pouliot as a […]

Bruins Smother Flames With Nine Goals, Twelve Point-Scoring Players

As a young boy, I played on a recreation-league soccer team in Brookline, Mass. We weren’t very good, but I liked the team’s name: the Flames. I’m pretty sure we could’ve given the Boston Bruins a better game than the Calgary Flames gave them Thursday night at TD Garden. Patrice Bergeron and Nathan Horton each […]

Bruins Top Brodeur, Devils 6-1

The Bruins  have been so good this season, they lead the NHL in goals per game (3.43), goals allowed per game (1.91), and goal differential (+60). Simply put, they are the best team in the NHL. That’s why their 4-2 loss last Saturday against the Stars was so surprising, though it is impossible (except in […]

Brad Marchand’s Hat Trick Boosts Bruins to 8-0 Win Over Panthers

Since starting the season 3-7, the Bruins can’t really find a way to lose. They entered Friday night’s clash with the Panthers as winners of 19 of their last 22 games, including one memorable blemish: a 2-0 loss to Florida back on Dec. 8. You have to imagine that despite the recent success, the Bruins must […]

Tuukka Time in Boston: Bruins Shut Out Kings 3-0

Injuries to captain Zdeno Chara and Steven Kampfer were not a factor in tonight’s victory over Los Angeles.

Sputtering Bruins End Losing Streak in Columbus

It took a while to get on track in this game and the past few games, but the Boston Bruins finally started a new winning streak in Columbus, taking the win 5-3. Starting the game, it looked like Boston’s losing streak would be pushed to three games; just 5:46 in, the Blue Jackets took the […]
