JetBlue Pilot Asks if Baby Crying on Plane was Sidney Crosby

As if the Penguins getting beat down 6-1 on home ice was not already enough, the star player is now the butt-end of a slew of jokes. During Tuesday’s plane ride back to Boston, Bruins reporter Joey McDonald (@ESPNJoeyMac) tweeted, “Baby crying on flight. Pilot comes on and asks if it’s Sidney Crosby.” Bruins fans continue […]

Bruins Fall 5-3 to Penguins, Boychuck Injured

With the Boston Bruins locked into the number two spot in the East, the game Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins should have had no meaning. In a 5-3 loss, the Bruins may have lost more than the game. Johnny Boychuck was on the wrong side of a knee-on-knee collision with Aaron Asham midway through the third […]

Penguins Handle and Hurt Bruins 5-2

The Bruins once again started the game slow getting down three goals in the first period. Tim Thomas didn’t look sharp again playing in back to back days. Marty Turco made his Bruins debut in relief of Thomas and played well considering the situation. Injuries continue to hurt the Bruins, Adam McQuaid, Max Sauve, and […]

Thomas Leads Red-Hot Bruins Over Crosby’s Penguins

When you’re winning, everyone contributes. The same has held true for the Bruins over the last 15 games, over which the Bruins have an amazing 14-0-1 record, with the latest triumph coming Monday night over the East-leading Pittsburgh Penguins. For many of the team’s wins through the points streak, the B’s have received big efforts […]

Bruins Den: Giving Thanks for Winning Streaks

Eight games and 21 days into the November, the Boston Bruins (11-7-0) are still yet to lose this month.

We already know that the Penguins will be shorthanded tonight, with their two stars, Sidney Crosby (concussion) and Evgeni Malkin (knee) sidelined long term with their injuries. […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Monday January 10th

The Bruins (21-12-7) will look to rebound from Saturday night’s embarrassing loss this evening, when they skate with the Sidney Crosby-less Pittsburgh Penguins (26-13-4).

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Ducks, Monday December 20th

The Bruins (17-10-4) find themselves in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference right now. Tonight, they’ll face off with the West’s current eighth seed, the Anaheim Ducks (17-15-4) at TD Garden.

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Thursday December 16th

The Bruins (16-9-4) will get a second chance to climb to a tie atop the Northeast Division this evening, when they take on the hated Montreal Canadiens (18-11-2) at the Bell Centre, north of the border. Boston found themselves just two points behind the Habs in the standings heading into last night’s action, but the […]

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 […]

Screaming for Vengeance, Dying for Goals: Bruins Win Fight, Lose Another Game

If you want blood… you almost got it. But not quite.

As every NHL fan knows, Cooke delivered a cheap head-shot to […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Thursday March 18th

Who knew? There’s apparently a little hockey game at TD Garden this evening. The much anticipated homecoming for the Boston Bruins (31-26-12) is finally here, as they host Matt Cooke and the Pittsburgh Penguins (41-24-5) after a season-long seven-game road trip. Any preview of this game has to obviously start with Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke. Cooke […]

Bruins and Penguins of Years Past

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, or so the saying goes. With tensions running high after the Savard hit, and with the Penguins and Bruins set to meet again this Thursday, several members of each staff would do well to remember possible past lives, or at least figures who […]
