Canada 3, USA 2: Canada Narrowly Averts National Humiliation, Wins Gold Medal

Do you believe in dramatic yet predictable outcomes? Olympic hockey favorites Canada narrowly avoided losing on their home ice in their national sport to their hated rivals, the sixth-seeded Team USA, for the second time in a week, winning the gold medal on Sidney Crosby’s sudden-death overtime strike. In a tense, well-played, and dramatic game, […]

Americans Top Mighty Canadians, 5-3

The Vancouver Games have been dominated by the United States thus far, and that superior play carried over into the hockey rink Sunday night, as the highly anticipated battle of North America was finally staged at Canada Hockey Place: the heavily favored hosts from Canada, taking on the youthful, miracle-seeking United States. Led by a […]

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.

A pair of goals by former Sabre Daniel Paille and 43 saves by the team’s new golden goalie Tuukka Rask helped the B’s earn their second straight win Tuesday night over the Buffalo Sabres, 3-2 in the shootout.

The Bruins (24-22-11), fresh off their Super Sunday shutout of the Montreal Canadiens north of the border, return to native soil tonight at HSBC Arena in Buffalo to take on the division-leading Sabres (32-18-7).

Savard Return Not Enough for Fading Bruins

Losers of eight of nine, the Bruins enjoyed a much-needed rest of four full days after Sunday’s ugly loss to the Hurricanes. Friday night’s opponent was the Northeast-leading Sabres, a team the Bruins should probably play well against if they’d like a shot to sneak back into the playoff picture. After taking the first two […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Friday 1-29

The Bruins (23-20-8) will get back to game action tonight in Buffalo when they take on the division-leading Sabres (31-14-7) at HSBC Arena. Boston has been mired in a miserable 1-7-1 stretch over their last nine games, now dropping them out of the Eastern Conference’s top eight. One player who has been missed over much […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Friday 11-20

Fresh off last night’s nail-biting shootout victory over the Atlanta Thrashers, the Bruins (9-8-4) will head north to take on division leading Buffalo (12-5-1) tonight at HSBC Arena.
