Bruins Dominate Division-Leading Lightning Again

The Bruins once again dominated the best team in the division during an early Monday afternoon game. Boston beat the Tampa Bay Lighting by a score of 3-0. This is the Bruins’ third straight win after going through a tough five-game stretch in which they only won a single game. This game was also the […]

Bruins Top Lightning, Get a Critical 2 Points

Entering Tuesday’s game, I didn’t know what to expect as the Bruins were playing a team that beat them 6-1 earlier in the month. In that game, the Bruins got some inconsistent goaltending play from both Marty Turco and Tim Thomas. Turco started the game and was shortly pulled in the first period. Tim Thomas came […]

Turco & Thomas Awful; Bruins Struck by Lightning 6-1

It’s Turco Time! Kinda sounds like Tuukka Time, right? Well, that’s where the similarities end. New acquisition Marty Turco, in his first start for the Bruins, allowed three goals within the first five minutes of the game, and four overall in the first period on just 12 shots, to send the Bruins to their third straight […]

2012 NHL Fantasy Draft: Zdeno Chara and Daniel Alfredsson are Good GMs

Thursday night the NHL All Star Draft happened in Ottawa. Zdeno Chara and Daniel Alfredsson captained the two teams selecting two All-Star rosters. Chara called the puck toss and won the first pick. Pavel Datsyuk was the first name called. Many people thought Chara would take Tim Thomas (though he did grab him in the second […]

Lightning Outshine Sloppy Bruins 5-3

The Bruins (29-13-1) were looking to follow up their shootout win on Monday night as they visited the slumping Lightning. Unfortunately a lack of defensive effort across the table instead led them to an awful 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay, who had been losers of seven consecutive games. The smallest of bright spots in the […]

Video: Johnny Boychuck Slapshot Hits Steven Stamkos in Face, Causes Broken Nose?

Lightning winger Steven Stamkos was the recipient of a hard slapshot to the face in the second period off the stick of Johnny Boychuk (the puck was redirected off the stick of Martin St. Louis). Stamkos is a hockey player though, and remained in the game despite a disgusting deep gash on his nose. Despite […]

Two-Goal Second Period Gives Thomas, Bruins 3-2 Lead In Eastern Conference Finals

The Tampa Bay Lightning held the Boston Bruins to just eight shots in the second period of Monday’s Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals at the TD Garden. The Bruins only needed two. Goals by Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand in the second period gave the Bruins the lead, and Tim Thomas stopped 33 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Thursday March 3rd

It had to end some time, and unfortunately, that end came on Tuesday night in Ottawa. Now, the Bruins (37-19-7) return home to TD Garden from their season-long six-game road trip, to host the high-flying Tampa Bay Lightning (37-19-7) this evening. 6-0-0. Looks pretty nice, doesn’t it? That was the record the Bruins put up […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Tuesday December 28th

Don’t look now, but the Boston Bruins (19-11-4) are in first place atop the Northeast Division! Well, tied with Montreal, but they have two games in hand on the Habs, so the B’s have the top spot technically to themselves. The same can be said for tonight’s opponent, with the Tampa Bay Lightning (21-10-5) also […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Thursday December 2nd

Fresh off their 3-0 shutout win over the Flyers less than 24 hours ago, the Bruins (13-8-2) return home Thursday evening to face off with Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning (14-8-3). The win Wednesday night marked the fifth shutout of the season already for goalie Tim Thomas, who put up an impressive 41-save […]

Stamkos Scores 20th Goal, Bolts Beat Bruins 3-1

The Tampa Bay Lightning handed the Bruins just their second road loss of the season Monday night, winning handily over Boston, 3-1 at St. Pete Times Forum. Honestly, this game wasn’t even as close as the score may indicate, as the ‘Ning took it to the B’s, especially in the second period. Tampa was far […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Monday November 22nd

The Bruins (11-5-2) hit the Sunshine State for a pair of pre-Turkey Day games this week, starting Monday night at the St. Pete Times Forum against the Tampa Bay Lightning (11-7-2).

Lightning ‘Power’ Their Way Past Bruins

Like the old saying goes “you plan a pretty picnic but you can’t predict the weather.” That saying fit perfectly Thursday night when the Boston Bruins took on the Tampa Bay Lightning because it was all Lightning, all night. It was also Steven Stamkos all night as he had two goals for the game and […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Lightning, Thursday March 25th

Fresh off two huge wins over New York and Atlanta, the Bruins (33-27-12) will hope to keep their winning juices flowing tonight at the Garden when they open up a three-game homestand against the Tampa Bay Lightning (29-32-12). Tampa Bay currently finds themselves with an eight-point deficit to make up if they have their eye […]
