After No Big Off-Season Moves, Are the Bruins Good Enough?

Bruins Take Goaltender Malcolm Subban at 2012 NHL Draft

With their first round pick, you would think the Bruins would look for a goal-scoring forward with size to help a mediocre power play. They could also pick up a defenseman that could log on a solid amount of ice time. That was not the case, though, come late in the first round of the […]

Thomas Relieves Injured Rask, Falters Against Islanders

Bruins Take One Point in Shootout Loss to Sabres

The Bruins dropped one in the shootout, 2-1 in Buffalo on Friday night. It was not exactly the nasty game that people were expecting, but it was a great game between two teams that dont like each other. There wasn’t much action in the early on until Buffalo put one on the board in the […]

Sabres Crush Both Rask and Thomas in Buffalo

The Buffalo Sabres played Wednesday’s game as a team desperately needing wins to keep its playoff hopes alive should: intelligent but physical, controlled but aggressive. The Boston Bruins played as a team with a chance at the Eastern Conference’s top spot should not: lazy, disorganized, brainless. Who do you think won? The Sabres scored twice […]
