If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 12

The season is almost half over, and the Devils are on pace for 46 points. Eight teams have already surpassed that mark. The Penguins and Red Wings have relatively comfortable leads for now, but have games out of hand to worry about. The Bruins are starting to pull away from the Canadiens, and still have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 7

Welcome to a special Thanksgiving week edition of the NHL’s “If the Playoffs…” And be sure to enjoy the Bruins’ matinee later Friday. This past week-and-a-game has included many fun moments, including a new top team in the league, as you’ve already noticed. Phoenix has charged forward, one point away from Detroit for the West’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 6

The red-hot Capitals (70 goals, by the way), show no signs of stopping anytime soon, especially when they’re gunning for another President’s Trophy. Though the Red Wings are making a challenge. And Boston’s doing quite well, when they’re on the road, anyway. Buffalo’s making a push to become relevant again, while St Louis is slipping. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Tim Thomas has gone downhill fast, but so have the Penguins. With three games in hand, Boston can take the division if those games in hands are wins, and they keep pace with Washington otherwise. Or with just three points from those games, Boston can displace Montreal. Either way, they’ve got plenty of room to […]

Bruins Fall to Blues in Shootout 2-1

After a disappointing loss to Washington on Friday night, the Bruins hoped to bounce back on Saturday, hosting the St. Louis Blues. Unfortunately, the B’s couldn’t stop hot Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak as Boston lost the game 2-1 in a shootout. Scoring started in the first period as St. Louis drew first blood. Ex-Bruin Vladimir […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 4

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Thanks to Boston, Buffalo is now the league’s worst team, and Nashville, #1 in the West last week, are down to #9. Pittsburgh is #8 in the East, and Toronto is starting to fall by the wayside. Plenty of teams are offensively gifted, plenty are defensively gifted, and others […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 3

After another week, things have been shaken up quite a bit. The conferences are now topped by the Predators and the Habs (or as we in Boston like to call them, Hab nots; let’s get that to catch on, people). The Devils continue to serve as basement dwellers, on pace for 41 points, as opposed […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 1

Isn’t the first week great? It’s the only time of a year that we get to see things like the Maple Leafs as the best team in the league. And it’s the one time of the year when Marty Brodeur is still working out the kinks, and the Bruins, just like the rest of the […]

Let’s Get Puck’d: NHL Western Conference Preview

Welcome, as we march on with the second half of this year’s NHL previews, this time shifting our focus to the Western Conference. To me, the West is wide open this year. Chicago, the league’s reigning Cup champs, had to have a fire sale in the off-season to relieve their salary cap crunch, which should […]

Bergeron Leads Bruins Past Blues, 4-2

On a night when the Bruins welcomed back playmaking center Marc Savard to their lineup, it was another center who was the heart of the Boston offense. Patrice Bergeron led the way with assists on all four Bruins goals tonight, helping the B’s top the St. Louis Blues 4-2 at Scottrade Center. The victory gave […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Blues, Monday 11-23

The Bruins (10-8-4) will make their third stop on this current four-game road trip tonight, as they visit the Scottrade Center in St. Louis to take on the Blues (8-8-4). Boston will finally have a welcome addition back in their lineup this evening, as all signs point to center Marc Savard making his return tonight […]

Bruins Singing the Blues After Crushing Loss

Down 2-1 entering the third period, the Bruins were in need of a lift…and they got it in a two-minute span late in the third. Michael Ryder scored his 18th goal on the power play at 15:16, PJ Axelsson added a power play goal of his own 19 seconds later to give the Bruins the […]
