Seguin benched for missing team meeting

The Bruins played last night in Winnipeg and took a 2-1 loss and snapped a point streak that started at the end of October. Tyler Seguin was a healthy scratch prior to puck drop. That was a surprise to anyone outside of the Bruins organization. Jordan Caron skated in his place.

Red Wings Snap Bruins’ 10-Game Streak, Win in Shootout 3-2

The Detroit Red Wings (13-7-1, 27 pts) defeated the Bruins (13-7-1, 27 pts) on Friday afternoon, topping a red-hot Boston club 3-2 in a shootout to end the B’s ten-game winning streak at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. The contest was well played throughout the entire match, with several minutes of continuous play, precision skill, focused […]

Bruins Overcome Two-Goal Deficit Against Sabres, Win Tenth Straight in Shootout

The Buffalo Sabres start fights. The Boston Bruins finish them. And they win games. Zdeno Chara‘s power play goal in the third period of Wednesday’s game in Buffalo completed a two-goal comeback, and Benoit Pouliot scored in the fifth round of the shootout to beat the Sabres, 4-3. The Bruins have now won 10 games […]

Bruins Pound Islanders for 8th Straight Win

The Bruins opened the first of three on their current road trip in Long Island against the Islanders on Saturday night. The game signified a bizzarre stretch in the schedule where the Bruins play the three road games after only having played four previously all season. Earlier this month the B’s shelled New York in […]

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 […]

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 […]

Loss to Habs Drops Bruins to Bottom of Eastern Conference

Let’s face it: the Bruins have received a pass so far this season. The Red Sox collapsed, drank beer, ate fried chicken, and were the talk of the town for weeks after the season. The Patriots, meanwhile, started 5-1 and appear destined for the playoffs. But, the Sox talk has subsided and the Pats are […]

Bruins’ Comeback Attempt Falls Short; Sharks Win 4-2

It was a sloppy game for a good chunk of the night for the Bruins, and it resulted in a 4-2 loss to San Jose. Boston has been getting off to sluggish starts in the season and in individual games lately, and they did it again, surrendering a goal just 1:12 into the game off […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bruins Stanley Cup Game 1 Report Card: Thomas Great, Recchi Too Old

Quick Thoughts: Well, from a Boston Bruins perspective, one can chose to look at Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals two ways: 1. A wasted opportunity. A game that easily could be had — given Tim Thomas and his heroic efforts. Thomas won’t be able to replicate that performance throughout the series. Lastly, and most importantly, Boston […]

Video: Alex Burrows Bites Patrice Bergeron in Game 1, Not Punished

We know both teams are hungry for the Stanley Cup, but Canucks winger Alex Burrows took that hunger to a whole new level. Sometime near the end of the first period in between whistles, Burrows bit Patrice Bergeron’s finger while the two were being separated by an official. Yep, he bit him. While it wasn’t nearly […]

Raffi Torres Goal with 18.5 Left in Third Gives Canucks Stanley Cup Game One Victory

It was a classic goalie battle Wednesday night as the Stanley Cup finals began at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. No Canuck could get past Tim Thomas, but neither could any Bruin get past Robert Luongo. Both were impenetrable walls, denying any and every shot. Sticks, skates, helmets, gloves, whatever it took to block the puck. […]
