Lots Bruin’: B’s Sign Recchi, Draft Seguin, Trade Sobotka, etc.

Hockey’s hot stove season has heated up and nowhere is it hotter than here in the Hub of Hockey. Highlighted by the NHL entry draft this past weekend and the selection of overall No. 2 pick Tyler Seguin, the Boston Bruins have put themselves in the center of it all, with moves being made, and […]

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli made some news on Friday, re-signing veteran winger and locker room leader Shawn Thornton to a new two-year contract that will pay the forward $812,500 per year and keep Thornton in Black and Gold through the 2011-12 season.

After a busy trade deadline day, or not so busy deadline day depending on which team we’re talking about, the Bruins (27-23-11) will get back to game action tonight at TD Garden in their final home game before departing for a season-long seven-game road trip up and down the Atlantic coastline. Coming to town tonight, […]

NHL Trade Deadline is Complete: Bruins Fail Miserably

The NHL’s 3 p.m. trade deadline came and went Wednesday afternoon, and unfortunately for Bruins fans, news of a major trade that would bring the team the offensive firepower they have lacked all season wouldn’t be heard all day long. Instead, teams from the top to the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings wheeled and […]

Three Steps To Get The Bruins Back Into The Playoffs

For the Boston Bruins, the current season has been a far cry from last season’s Eastern-Conference-winning effort and the expectations that accompanied such a feat. Winless at the TD Garden in 2010, the Bruins have lost eight in a row and ten of their last eleven, with that sole win coming in a shootout. The […]

Bruins Remaining Schedule By The Numbers

With 51 games in the 2009-10 season already in the books, you have to imagine coach Claude Julien envisioned a playoff picture that was a bit brighter than the one his team is faced with at this point.

Phil Kessel: Don’t Love Him, Don’t Hate Him, Don’t Boo Him

Zero goals. No assists. Plus/minus of -3. Those are not the stats any hockey player hopes to have on his game splits, especially when he’s returning to his former team’s rink. Unfortunately for Phil Kessel, that was his exact scoring line when he played against the Boston Bruins for the first time since being traded […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Thursday 10-29

The Bruins are back in action at the TD Garden tonight, as they host all-world goalie Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils.

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Predators, Wednesday 10-21

The Bruins will showcase their new-look roster Wednesday night at the TD Garden, hosting the lowly Nashville Predators.

Bruins Make History Dealing For Forward Paille

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli made team history by sending a 2010 third-round draft pick and a conditional fourth-rounder in next year’s draft to the Buffalo Sabres for left wing Daniel Paille (pronounced: pie-YAY) in the first-ever trade between the Northeast Division opponents. Paille, a Welland, Ontario-native (and newlywed, Google has pointed out), comes […]
