Tuukka Time in Boston: Bruins Shut Out Kings 3-0

Injuries to captain Zdeno Chara and Steven Kampfer were not a factor in tonight’s victory over Los Angeles. Tuukka Rask was perfect in net and got his first shutout of the season as the Bruins defeated the Kings 3-0. Boston went on the power play on the first shift of the game and didn’t score yet […]

2011 Bruins Preview: Defensemen

While no one can deny that all of the awards and accolades Bruins goalie Tim Thomas received after last season’s historic Stanley Cup run were all very well-deserved, I’m here to tell you that hey, the guy didn’t do it all on his own. Without the talents of the Bruins’ “blue line brigade,” the team […]

Once More, Bruins Can’t Figure Out Maple Leafs

In trying to keep pace with Philadelphia and Washington, Boston instead couldn’t keep pace with Toronto, losing at home 4-3 in a shootout. The two teams were relatively even in the 1st Period, with the only goal coming on a wrist shot from Toronto’s Luke Schenn. Toronto also out-shot Boston by one in the period, […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Blue Jackets, Tuesday March 15th

The Bruins (38-21-9) look to put their season-long four-game winless streak behind them tonight at Nationwide Arena, as they get set to take on the always pesky Columbus Blue Jackets (32-27-9). Boston finds themselves still clinging to the top spot in the Northeast Division, but their lead over rival Montreal has dwindled to just two […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Thursday March 10th

With so much Bruins (38-20-8) news happening off the ice over the last 48 hours or so, it’s hard to remember that the team still has plenty of work left to do on the ice, including tonight, when the B’s host the Buffalo Sabres (32-26-8) at TD Garden. So obviously, the focus since Tuesday night’s […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Canadiens, Tuesday March 8th

One of the best rivalries in the NHL heats up north of the border this evening, as the Bruins (38-19-8) travel to Montreal to take on the hated Canadiens (36-23-7). It was just 27 days ago when the B’s and Habs last met in a game many are still talking about. 182 penalty minutes, five […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Saturday March 5th

The Bruins (38-19-7) look to extend their season-long win streak to eight tonight, when they host the hated Matt Cooke and the Pittsburgh Penguins (37-21-8) at TD Garden. 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. […]

Bruins Win Insane War Against Habs

I have never seen anything like that. There hasn’t been action that chaotic in Boston since the Royal Rumble 10 days prior. The final victory, 8-6, seemed more like something Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford will put up in a few months. These two teams are supposed to be built on defense, but they scored […]

Bruins Can’t Hold Off Tough Penguins Front

With such a tough schedule, you wondered how long the Bruins could keep it up. After such a crazy game against Philly, Pittsburgh let the Bruins back in the game, but won in the end 3-2. Boston opened with a flurry in the first minute, but couldn’t take the quick edge. They even got a […]

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 Drop Wild One in Shootout

In a game that went back and forth more than Hamlet deciding whether or not to be, the Buffalo Sabres emerged with a 7-6, shootout win. In a battle of futility between some of the (supposedly) best goaltenders in the NHL, nobody could play defense very well, or at all. Andrew Ference started the scoring […]

Bruins Shock Lightning to Extend Division Lead

The Boston Bruins scored first and never fell behind the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday’s 4-3 win in Florida – but it was close. Mark Recchi scored the game-winning, power-play goal with just 20 seconds remaining in the third period. The Bruins were coming off of a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Monday, […]

Mark Stuart Out 4-6 Weeks

Boston Bruins’ defenseman Mark Stuart will miss four to six weeks with a broken fourth metacarpal joint in his right ring finger. Stuart suffered the injury during Tuesday night‘s contest against Buffalo. Stuart was examined by Dr. Matt Leibman at Newton Wellesley Hospital, and the diagnosis was confirmed by GM Peter Chiarelli. In the meantime, […]
