Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot With Odd Win Over Hurricanes

The Bruins have a lot of trouble scoring goals on the power play, and it gets even worse at even strength. They continued to struggle in both departments during Saturday’s 4-2 win against the Hurricanes. When Matt Hunwick headed back to the penalty box to start the second period, he told teammates to kill the […]

Bruins Make Playoff Case At Atlanta’s Expense

In a game that could have forced them out of the playoff brackets, the Bruins stepped up, swatting the Thrashers in Atlanta 4-0. The teams fought a largely back and forth battle, until the Bruins struck first blood at 9:25 into the 1st thanks to David Krejci. That didn’t sit well with the Thrashers, as […]

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-Blue Jackets, Thursday 1/21

The Bruins (23-17-8) will look to eliminate the bad taste left in their mouths after Monday’s 5-1 flop at the hands of the Senators, when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets (19-24-9) tonight at TD Garden. Boston’s lack of offensive punch has proven costly of late, as the B’s have dropped their last three home […]

The Bruins (23-16-8) return home to TD Garden this afternoon for a holiday matinee skate with the Ottawa Senators (24-21-4).

Bruins Thrash Atlanta in Winter Classic Tune-Up

Another game, another Bruins win over the Thrashers. It seemed like just another night at the ice rink in the TD Garden, but considering the Bruins upcoming schedule, it was anything but that. It had to be hard for the players to concentrate considering the city’s excitement over the Winter Classic at Fenway Park on […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Monday 12/21

The Bruins (16-11-7) will look to get back to their winning ways tonight in Canada’s capital city, as they head into ScotiaBank Place to take on the division rival Ottawa Senators (18-13-4). These two teams have been battling back and forth in the Northeast Division standings, leapfrogging each other since the very beginning of the […]

Bruins Crush Maple Leafs Like Leaves

Yes, the Maple Leafs folded like their namesake, and the Bruins looked like bears again instead of cubs as Boston won convincingly at home, 7-2. The Bruins stepped on the gas from the start and never let up, scoring on a Marco Sturm tip-in. Just one second later, Shawn Thornton got into a scuffle with […]

Bruins Fall to Philly, 4-3

The Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins played four nail-biting games during last season, with each team winning two and each scoring 12 combined goals apiece. So it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that 60 minutes of hockey was not going to be enough to settle the score between these two Cup hopefuls Thursday night. It turns […]

Newbies Key 3-2 Bruins Win

Maybe the Bruins hit rock bottom, then bounced back up. Trailing 1-0 then 2-1 at home to Nashville (dead last in the Central Division), Boston came from behind to pull out an important 3-2 win on Wednesday. With All-Star (and last year’s leading scorer) Marc Savard joining Milan Lucic and Shawn Thornton on the injury […]

Bruins 2009-2010 Season Preview: Forwards

Last season, the Boston Bruins scored 274 goals, second only to the Detroit Red Wings’ 295. With Phil Kessel (36 goals), Michael Ryder (27), and Marc Savard (25) leading the way, the B’s coupled their smothering defense with a potent offense that earned the top seed in the Eastern Conference. While their efforts fell short, […]

A Bruins Summer Summary

As we turn the page on the calendar to September, we find ourselves exactly one month away from the opener for Boston’s ’09-’10 season, when Alex the Great and the Capitals visit the Garden to kick off what will be a year loaded with very high expectations for the Black and Gold.

On the first day of the free-agency signing period, Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli kept his word. Tuesday, after failing to make a draft day trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs involving Phil Kessel and Thomas Kaberle, Chiarelli told the press that he would not sacrifice depth in order to sign a big name. In […]
