Bruins-Wild History Worsens With Loss

After a hard-fought five-game road trip, the Boston Bruins returned to the TD Garden to take on a team that could be considered mediocre compared to the competition the Bruins faced as of late. But, the Bruins were unable to outscore the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night, falling 3-1. The Wild have never lost in Boston […]

Bruins Take Division After First Shootout Win

Boston never led in the game. They were 0-3 in shootouts on the season. But they were up against the lowly Panthers, and the Bruins finally were able to take control in a shootout and the Northeast Division by beating Florida 3-2 in said shootout. Both teams got double-digit shots on goal in each of […]

Thornton Helps Bruins Thrash Atlanta 4-1

Enforcer Shawn Thornton entered this season with 15 career goals, and had just one in 74 games last season. Simply put, his job on the ice regularly does not involve scoring…until now. Thornton scored his career-high sixth and seventh goals of the season (in just 33 games) to help lead the Bruins past the Thrashers […]

Late Boston Penalty Turns Zero Toronto Points Into Two

Boston was sailing on their way to another victory with just minutes remaining. But a late holding call on Patrice Bergeron allowed Toronto to get a major advantage and score with less than a minute to go, and eventually win the game in a shootout. What is it with Boston teams losing to Toronto teams […]

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 […]
