A Day Later: New-Look Flyers Spoil Bruins’ Banner-Raising Ceremony

The Flyers were swept out of the playoffs by the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Bruins last season, and that had to leave a bitter taste in their mouths. As a result, Philly overhauled their core group, trading away Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. In separate deals, the Flyers acquired a desperately needed new goalie in Ilya […]

Patrice Bergeron Suffers Mild Concussion, Status Uncertain

The Philadelphia Flyers may not have made a spectacular comeback, but for the second year in a row, they have managed to take out a key Boston Bruin. Last year, it was David Krejci (dislocated wrist); this year, it’s Patrice Bergeron, who suffered what Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has deemed a “mild concussion” after a […]

Finally! Bruins Sweep Away Flyers 5-1; Bergeron Injured

One year ago, the B’s lost four straight games and were eliminated from they playoffs on their home ice in Game 7 after taking a 3-0 series lead against the Philadelphia Flyers. In the same situation this year against these same Flyers, the B’s had some obvious demons to exercise on the ice in Game […]

Bruins-Flyers: Why History Won’t Repeat Itself

The Celtics look old: they just can’t hang with Miami Heat’s run-and-gun offense. The Red Sox are looking better, but they still won’t be playing meaningful baseball for two months. The New England Patriots are still four months away from their season not happening. No matter what the courts rule regarding the lockout, you still […]

Here We Go Again: Bruins Top Flyers For 3-0 Series Lead

The Flyers now have the Bruins right where they want them. I don’t need to tell you what happened last year, but if you need a reminder: Philly rallied from a 3-0 series deficit to topple the Bruins on their way eventually to a Stanley Cup berth. The Flyers and Bruins find themselves in the […]

5 Tidbits from Bruins-Flyers as Series Shifts to Boston

Here’s five thoughts about the second-round series between the Bruins and Flyers as Game 3 is set for Wednesday night in Boston. 1. In hockey, more than any other sport, certain players get the puck and immediately strike the fear of God into fans. These players are like maniacal villains in the old-school slasher movies […]

Krejci’s Goal in OT Lifts Bruins to 2-0 Lead; McQuaid Injured

How many shots do the Philadelphia Flyers need to take to get past Tim Thomas? Apparently not enough. After giving up two goals in the first period of Game 2 Monday night, Thomas was able to hold off the Flyers’ next 46 shots on goal. Forcing overtime, the hero this time for the Boston Bruins […]

Krejci Helps Bruins Beat Flyers 7-3 To Take Game 1

The Bruins beat the Flyers in Game 1 of their second round series on Saturday. Sound familiar? Well, in last year’s second round series, the Bruins took Game 1 against Philly and then the next two to take a 3-0 series lead. Then, the Flyers won the remaining four elimination games and embarrassed the Bruins out of […]

Don’t Give Up on the Bruins Just Yet

It’s painfully obvious that the Bruins didn’t play their best hockey the first two playoff games.  Down 2-0 in their opening playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens, things were looking bleak for our Bruins considering the team has never won a playoff series after dropping the first two games (0-26). Most of the fans, who […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 26

After a long season, the playoff bracket will be set Sunday night, quite possibly in the final game between Dallas in Minnesota. Even with half a week to go, only the three Western divisions have been clinched; no other Western slot has been clinched. Buffalo and New York are still hanging onto their spots, but […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

It’s almost time for the playoffs, and five of the spots have been locked up so far. But only Vancouver has clinched a division, and they’ve even clinched their conference, and their magic number is down to four points to clinch the President’s Trophy. It’s still pretty packed out West otherwise, though Chicago and the […]

Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot With Win Over Flyers

Coming off a tough 1-0 loss to the Rangers, the Bruins were still in good shape. If they beat the Flyers on the second game of a back-to-back Sunday, they would clinch a playoff spot for the fourth straight year. Mission accomplished. After falling behind 1-0, the resilient Bruins scored two unanswered goals, capped off […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

No more than ten games remain for anyone, yet only three playoff spots have been officially wrapped up, and only one of those a division. The excitement continues to be in the middle of the West’s pack, where three points separate #5 from #10. A maximum of three points separate any playoff team from the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 23

We’re coming up on the last 10 games of the season, and it’s just as exciting as it ever was. If it weren’t for those games in hand, Philadelphia would be in trouble. Vancouver isn’t too far away from clinching that President’s Trophy. It’s still a logjam out West, and Anaheim is just one win […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 22

Only one month remains in the season, and there’s still a lot to be hashed out. The Devils are still making an improbable run. Five points separates #4 from #11 out west. Even the Flyers aren’t safe, with Boston and now Washington right behind them. One of the few sure things right now appears to […]
