Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Tuesday February 15th

The Bruins (31-18-7) will aim to get back on track this evening, as they host Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (23-27-6) at TD Garden. Boston’s licking their wounds after getting completely outplayed over the weekend in a pair of losses to the Detroit Red Wings. On Friday night, it was a 6-1 beatdown […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Monday January 3rd

Wrapping up their season-high five-game road trip, the Bruins (20-11-6) travel north of the border to take on Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (14-19-4) this evening at the Air Canada Centre. You’d think scoring six goals would be enough for a win… and more often than not, you’d be correct. But that wasn’t […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Saturday December 4th

What a time to be a Boston sports fan. The C’s beat up on Brian Scalabrine’s Bulls last night. The Pats are hosting the Jets Monday night at Gillette in the biggest game thus far in the NFL’s regular season. Gillette Stadium is buzzing today with six Eastern Mass. high school Super Bowls. Oh, and […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Thursday October 28th

The Bruins (4-2-0) will look to get back on track Thursday at TD Garden when they host their first Northeast Division opponent of the year, Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (5-2-1). Boston had their four-game win streak snapped at home Saturday night, falling to the New York Rangers, 3-2. Tuukka Rask was back […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Saturday April 3rd

With just five games left in the regular season, the Bruins (35-30-12) find themselves in desperation mode, needing every point they can get to cling to their playoff spot. That clinging starts tonight when they head north of the border to face the Eastern Conference’s cellar dwellers, the Toronto Maple Leafs (29-36-13). Boston currently sits […]

Bruins Move on Without Savard, Lose to Leafs

Without the services of center Marc Savard, the Bruins marched forward on Tuesday night as they continue their pitiful push toward the playoffs. Savard, arguably the best player on the team, will likely be out the rest of the season with a serious Grade 2 concussion after a hit at the hands of Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Tuesday 3/9

The road trip continues tonight for the Black and Gold, as the Bruins (29-24-11) make their third stop on their current seven-game trip, this time in Toronto to face the lowly Maple Leafs (20-33-12). These two teams should know each other pretty well by now, having faced each other four times already, including less than […]

Satan, Thomas Help Bruins End Home Losing Streak

A day after the Bruins failed to acquire a desperately needed goal-scorer, the team took the ice against the Maple Leafs, which served as a grim reminder they traded their best goal scorer to Toronto: Phil Kessel. The only “significant” offensive player added since Kessel’s departure was perhaps free agent signee Miroslav Satan, who had […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Thursday 3-4

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, […]

U.S. Hockey Team Knocks Off Norway, 6-1

The U.S. Olympic men’s hockey squad was able to pull away from the Norwegians with three third period goals Thursday in Vancouver, giving them a convincing 6-1 win and second straight victory, heading into Sunday’s big matchup with the gold medal favorite Canadians. Former Bruin Phil Kessel and former B.U. grad Chris Drury both netted […]

Boston Bruins Mid-Season Report Card

Having played their 41st game of the season – a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers – the Boston Bruins are now halfway through their regular season and currently stand at 21-13-7, for a total of 49 points. Despite a sluggish start during which they alternated wins and losses (until they hit two three-game […]

Winter Classic Destined To Be a Classic

Fenway Park was on the edge of its collective seat for the third annual Winter Classic. It was a close, tough match, but the Boston Bruins somehow clawed out a 2-1 victory at the end. The 1st period was nothing special, really. Some back and forth action, with a nice looking save or two on each […]

Bruins All-Decade Team: 2000′s

The first decade of the new millennium has been a pendulum for the National Hockey League: it has seen the disappointment of a lockout during the 2004-2005 season coupled with the high expectations of “the Next One,” Sidney Crosby. The Boston Bruins had the same swings, ranging from the excitement of a first-place finish in […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Maple Leafs, Saturday 12/19

The Bruins (16-10-7) will look to rebound from Friday night’s 5-4 shootout loss to Chicago tonight, when they travel north of the border to face off with Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs (12-16-7). This will be the third meeting of the month between these two squads, but the first away from TD Garden. […]

Bruins Beat Out Maple Leafs…Again

Someone better tell the Bruins it’s almost winter because they are hot; 8-1-1 in their last ten games. The Bruins defeated Phil Kessel’s Toronto Maple Leafs Thursday night by the score of 5-2 at home. Five days earlier, Boston defeated the same team 7-2. Scoring 12 goals to Toronto’s 4 is something to be proud of. With […]
