Some Capitals Fans to Wear Obama Masks Mocking Tim Thomas

Remember when Tim Thomas skipped the team’s visit to the White House? Well, that got some Washington Capitals fans thinking… Hell bent on figuring out how to score on Thomas, Washington fans have resorted to the ridiculous. But, hey, you have to admire their creativity. Caps fans are encouraged to wear Barack Obama masks:

Holtby Steps Up Again as Bruins Fall to Capitals in Double OT

When the Capitals two goaltenders Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth went down late in the season with injuries, most people thought the playoffs were practically over for them. Well, that hasn’t been the case, as 22-year-old Brandon Holtby has been as good as his predecessors, if not better. He stood on his head in Game […]

Kelly’s Overtime Goal Lifts Bruins in Game 1 over Capitals

In last year’s playoff run, the Bruins were 1-3 in Game 1′s. So, Thursday night’s playoff opener was anything but a guarantee for the Bruins against the 7th-seeded Capitals. Then, when the Bruins were unable to get any goals by young Caps goalie Braden Holtby in regulation, you had to wonder if they’d ever score. […]

Bruins Comeback Finishes Regular Season on High Note

It was a statistically meaningless game, but that didn’t stop the Bruins from pulling out the stops, especially late, to build up some needed momentum going into the postseason. Everything started out so close; in fact each team had 12 shots in a scoreless 1st period. Boston started to pick things up later on, especially […]

Bruins Beat Rangers 2-1, Clinch Division Title

It was clearly a playoff atmosphere Sunday night at Madison Square Garden as the Boston Bruins beat the New York Rangers for the first time this season, winning 2-1.

Bruins Wait to Clinch; McQuaid Suffers Eye Injury, but No Concussion

The Boston Bruins needed two points Thursday night against the Capitals to clinch a playoff spot but came out of the game with only one in a 3-2 shootout loss to Washington.

Rask Getting Ready for a Playoff Return

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask told ESPNBoston and other outlets Wednesday that his recovery from an abdominal strain/groin strain is going well and that he hopes to be ready for the postseason. Rask has been out since March 3 and at the time of the injury the team hoped he would be ready for playoffs. There are two ways to […]

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 […]

The Boston Bruins have now won four of their last five games, ending the west coast trip with a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks. The Bruins have now opened up a five point lead over Ottawa and still have a game in hand. Marty Turco recorded his first win since February 1st of 2011 […]

Inconsistent Bruins Return in 2-1 Loss to Sharks

There had been some signs that the Bruins had gotten past the roughest stretch of the season. They may be past that point still and Thursday night’s game was just a bad game. The Sharks scored first and went on to win 2-1. The Bruins only had 17 shots on goal, a season low. Tim Thomas […]

Bruins Are Back After 8-0 Win Over Leafs

The Bruins have owned the Maple Leafs all season and Monday night was no different. Four first period goals powered the Bruins past the Leafs with a 8-0 final score. Fourteen Bruins skaters ended the game with at least one point. Tim Thomas needed only 13 saves to earn a shutout (he saw only two […]

Bruins Finally Win Again

The horrid losing streak is finally over thanks to a 3-2 shootout victory over Philadelphia, but Philly still nearly pulled out an impressive victory. And with Boston so used to giving up the first two goals lately, it was refreshing to actually see Boston get on the board first for a change, thanks to Chris […]

Bruins Lose Fourth Straight Game, Fall 6-2 to the Panthers

The Boston Bruins are hanging on to the lead in the Northeast division by a thread after Thursday’s 6-2 loss in Florida. Tim Thomas continues to struggle, yet keeps getting continuous starts due to the injury to Tuukka Rask. Jose Theodore, meanwhile, made 24 saves on 26 shots in a game that the Bruins played as […]

By Blaming Dim Lights at MSG, Tim Thomas Just Made Excuses… Again

Yes, Tim, the lights at Madison Square Garden are different than in any other arena in the NHL.  Yes, Tim, the reason Henrik Lundqvist was able to thwart the Bruins offensive attack may have been because he’s played at MSG all season and has gotten used to this unfavorable lighting. But no, Tim, the lighting […]

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 […]
