Bruins Salvage Point From Improbable Comeback, But Fall 4-3 in Shootout

The highs and lows of this game were worlds apart, and in the end, the Kings finally finished off the Bruins 4-3 in a shootout, leaving the Bruins to settle for a single point. That isn’t too bad, considering the Kings led 3-0 at one point. The game started with obvious omens that it would […]

Lucic, Rask Shut Out Panthers

A lot can happen in less than thirty seconds, especially in hockey. For the Bruins, they were able to collect three goals with less than five minutes left to go in the game to secure the win on Thursday night in Boston. Of course, they all came in the span of 24 seconds. Collecting his […]

Bruins Fight Back, Beat Pens 7-4

Never thought I’d see the day. Bruins getting smashed in the mouth right and left, down two goals and somehow come back to win by three? Just doesn’t seem right. After being down by two goals heading into the third period, the Pittsburgh Penguins were tossing the Bruins around all over the ice (and into […]

Bruins Blow Three-Goal Comeback, Lose to Capitals 5-3

In a game worthy of many differing headlines, the visiting Boston Bruins lost 5-3 to the Washington Capitals after blowing a three-goal comeback late in the third period. Having beaten Washington 3-1 and 4-1 earlier this season, the Bruins entered the game overconfident and flat, recovered, but failed to keep up with the speedy Capitals. […]

Thomas Not Immortal, Bruins Still Win

It wasn’t the best defensive stand, but with Ryan Miller out with lower body issues, the Bruins sprung out like a trap door spider to claim a 5-2 victory in Buffalo. Boston wasted no time going to work on the power play. The only thing was, it was Buffalo’s power play. With Michael Ryder in […]

Bruins Drop Disappointing Home Game to Rangers

Point-wise, the Bruins should be happy they haven’t played as many games as other teams, because they blew a tough game against the Rangers Saturday, 3-2. Passing was the theme of the evening for Boston, which at times led them to forget that you have to shoot the puck to score. New York jumped out […]

Bruins Take Care of Devils 4-1

I do believe that the someone told the Bruins to work on their offense this off-season and so far it’s working. After their first two regular-season games over in Prague against the Phoenix Coyotes, the B’s came back to North America and came back strong. Boston had it’s first game in the States in New […]

Bruins 2010-2011 Preview: Forwards

When it comes to what will fuel the Bruins this season, look no further than the forwards. Regarded as one of the worst offensive teams in the league last year, the Bruins hope to find their way back into the elite group of offensive teams in the NHL. Two years ago, the Bruins had one […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 2

On Wednesday, we showed the first four things to watch for as the Bruins open camp. While the way the 2009-2010 Bruins season ended really stung, we are turning the page to a new era of Boston Bruins hockey. One way to get that started is with new talent, like Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. […]

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 1

Is it too soon to talk about the Bruins yet, or is the sting of last spring’s playoff collapse still too painful to overcome? Personally, as tough as it may be to do, I say we turn the page to the next chapter: the 2010-11 NHL season. The B’s are off and running this month […]

Bruins Re-sign Seidenberg to Four-Year Extension

Everything is coming together for Dennis Seidenberg. The lacerated tendon in his arm has healed and Saturday he inked a four-year contract extension with the Bruins. Seidenberg, who has played for five clubs since 2002, is finally settling down. Peter Chairelli, the Bruins’ general manager, spoke about locking up the German defenseman for the next […]

Bruins Give Shawn Thornton Hefty Raise on New Two-Year Deal

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. Now granted, that salary isn’t something many of us real world folk […]

Sturm’s Season Ends With Torn ACL, MCL

While there was plenty to cheer about during Saturday’s 5-4 overtime victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, in which the returning Marc Savard scored the game-winning goal, the Boston Bruins announced the end of Marco Sturm’s season on Sunday. Sturm went down in the opening minute of the playoff series after checking Flyer Matt Carle and […]

Savard Cleared to Play and Set to Return, But Should He?

On Tuesday morning, Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli gave Boston’s faithful more than just the team’s 4-2 series win over the Buffalo Sabres in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs as he announced that center Marc Savard is set to play after fully recovering from his concussion. Savard, out since suffering the Grade […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Capitals, Monday April 5th

Down the stretch they come, as the Bruins (36-30-12) enter the final week of the regular season, with four huge games that will tell us whether our hometown hockey club is playoff bound or bound to clean out their lockers for a lengthy off-season. A tall task lies ahead of them this evening, as they […]
