Kunitz Loses Hat Trick, Helps Pens Beat Bruins

A modest Chris Kunitz told reporters after the Penguins beat the Bruins 6-4 Sunday afternoon that he did not deserve the hat trick he was credited with. Upon further review after the game, officials took his third period goal away and handed it to former Bruins defensman Sergei Gonchar. “I didn’t hit the puck, the […]

Kessel Leads Bruins to Win Over Islanders

Despite going in and out of Claude Julien’s doghouse, 21-year-old Phil Kessel has had a strong season for the Bruins. It appears he finally has emerged as a top-goal scorer in the NHL, as long as he can keep his play consistent. Kessel reached the 30-goal plateau Saturday afternoon in a 2-1 win over the […]

Bruins End Skid, Beat Senators 5-3

Aaron Ward scored his first career shorthanded goal coming out of the penalty box during the Bruins’ slump-busting win over the Senators. “I’ve never scored on a breakaway. I didn’t know what to do,” the defenseman said. “It’s like an offensive lineman scoring in football. Hopefully they won’t have video of it. I think my […]

Recchi Scores Twice, Leads Bruins Over Blackhawks

The Bruins were on a slide, and they were facing a strong team from the Western Conference in the Chicago Blackhawks. The B’s rarely faced adversity before the rough stretch, so getting out of it will be a good learning experience for the young team. Did I say young? The team’s most-experienced player, 41-year-old Mark […]

Bruins Fall in Overtime to Caps

The Bruins had a comfortable lead in the Eastern Conference entering Saturday afternoon’s game against the Capitals. They still have a comfortable lead (eight points) over the Capitals, but they left Saturday’s contest with a bad taste in their mouth after a 4-3 overtime loss. Alexander Semin scored on an 80-foot slapshot 22 seconds into […]

Bruins Lose on Late Goal in Tampa Bay

When Phil Kessel scored just two minutes into the game, it looked as if the Bruins were going to pour it on the 28-loss Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning struck right back with two quick goals just minutes later from Jeff Halpern and Adam Hall to take the lead in what became a back-and-forth contest. […]

Phil Kessel to Return for Bruins Against Devils

The Bruins are getting another key offensive player back as Phil Kessel returns to the ice after missing six games with a case of mononucleosis. Without Kessel, the Bruins are 4-1-1 as they continue to play well without numerous weapons on their front lines. Kessel is the biggest weapon yet for the B’s to return […]

Kessel, Krejci Headed Towards Huge Pay Day

Coming into this season, many Bruins fans didn’t know what to expect from 3rd year winger Phil Kessel and sophomore David Krejci. Both players had shown glimpses of their potential in 2007-08, but neither had yet established themselves as legitimate offensive threats. This year however, these two young guns have arguably been the Bruins two […]

Bruins on the Offensive in 7-3 Rout of Atlanta

You know things are going good for your hockey team when a guy like Mark Stuart finds the back of the net twice. That’s just how it’s going for the Boston Bruins these days. The B’s handled the Atlanta Thrashers 7-3 Friday night in Atlanta, as Phil Kessel scored a goal and added two assists […]

Bruins Remain Red-Hot, Topple Panthers 4-0

Even the hottest goaltenders in the NHL can’t do much against the Boston Bruins these days. Phil Kessel notched his team-leading 16th goal of the season and Manny Fernandez registered his 1st shutout of the season as the Boston Bruins dismantled Craig Anderson and the Florida Panthers 4-0 Saturday night in Sunrise, Florida.

Bruins Continue Winning Ways, Defeat Panthers 4-2

The Boston Bruins just keep on rolling. The Black and Gold beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 Friday night, extending their winning streak to three games. The Bruins have now won 8 out of their last 9 games, and are 11-1-1 in their last 13. With the victory over Florida, Boston moves into sole possession of […]

Bruins Rout Sabres 7-4 in Offensive Explosion

They say it’s better to be lucky than good. Chuck Kobasew would probably agree. The Boston forward scored the eventual deciding goal late in the 2nd period of last night’s 7-4 Bruins victory, banking a shot off Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller from behind the net and in. The goal was Kobasew’s 2nd tally of the […]

Thomas Shines as Bruins Outlast Toronto 3-2

It seems even when the Bruins don’t bring their ‘A’ game, they still find a way to win. Boston outlasted the Maple Leafs last night in Toronto, edging their Northeast division rival 3-2 in front of a sellout crowd at the Molson Centre. The Leafs controlled the play for much of the game, but Boston […]

ATR: Bruins Starting to Take the Next Step

It is late Saturday night as I write this, and I am currently basking in the glow of yet another Bruins victory. “Bruins in 2″ is on NESN right now, and I’ve been crunching numbers and reading various Bruins-related blogs since the horn blew around 9:15 pm earlier this evening, marking the Bruins third straight […]

Wheeler Notches 1st Career Hat Trick as Bruins Beat Toronto 5-2

Blake Wheeler has had a number of firsts this season. First NHL game, first point, first goal. Last night, he added another to the ever-growing list; first hat trick. The rookie winger potted three goals, including an empty-netter, as the Boston Bruins cruised past the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2.  Dennis Wideman and Zdeno Chara also […]
