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 […]

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 […]

Tuukka Rask Injured, Out 4-6 Weeks; Bruins Sign Marty Turco

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is out for 4-6 weeks with a lower abdomen strain/groin strain, the team announced Monday. The time period means Rask will likely miss the rest of the regular season (which ends April 7) and possibly some of the playoffs. He was hurt during the team’s loss to the Islanders on Saturday. […]

Thomas Relieves Injured Rask, Falters Against Islanders

The Boston Bruins have needed no one’s help to play lazy, lackadaisical, .500 hockey since mid-January. But Saturday afternoon against the New York Islanders, they got a little help from the referees. A possibly uncalled icing penalty late in the third led to a tie-breaking goal by center John Tavares, and Evgeni Nabokov saved 32 […]

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 […]

Ward’s Shutout Gives Hurricanes First Season Sweep Over Bruins

The Boston Bruins did just about everything they could against the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night at the TD Garden. They won over 70 percent of their face-offs. They hit hard and often. And they ripped shot after shot after shot at goalie Cam Ward. They just couldn’t score. Ward saved all 47 shots against him […]

Bruins Start 2nd Half With Win Against Ottawa 4-3

The Bruins started the second half of the season at home against Ottawa with a win 4-3. The Senators played the Bruins tough, which is not a surprise with a huge improvement from last season for them. With goals from Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Milan Lucic, and Brad Marchand along with 30 saves from Tim […]

Tim Thomas Benched, Capitals Beat Bruins 5-3

Tim Thomas was first off the ice at practice Tuesday, which usually indicates he would start in net that night. He did not. One day after purposely skipping the Bruins’ event at the White House, and on the same day as President Obama’s State of the Union address, Thomas rode the bench. In his place […]

Rangers Beat Bruins 3-2 in Last Seconds of Overtime

The Rangers stunned the Bruins Saturday with a last second goal in overtime 3-2. Sixty minutes wasnt enough time to have a winner in the game. It was a slow start to the game with no goals in the first period. The Rangers took the first lead in the second but the Bruins responded with […]

Bruins Escape Florida with a 3-2 Win in Shootout

The Bruins took down the Panthers in the shootout 3-2 and are now 5-0-1 when playing more than 60 minutes. Patrice Bergeron had himself a night with two goals in regulation, he added a goal in the shoot out but it does not count for the hat trick. Tuukka Rask made big saves at big times helping the Bruins avoid a […]

Bruins Explode in Third Period, Rally Past Jets

The Bruins came into their Tuesday night game with the Winnipeg Jets (20-16-5) looking to get back into the win column after a rough game and loss to the rival Vancouver Canucks on Saturday evening. They were without Brad Marchand, who received a controversial and highly publicized 5-game suspension for his hit on Sami Salo. […]

Bruins Smother Flames With Nine Goals, Twelve Point-Scoring Players

As a young boy, I played on a recreation-league soccer team in Brookline, Mass. We weren’t very good, but I liked the team’s name: the Flames. I’m pretty sure we could’ve given the Boston Bruins a better game than the Calgary Flames gave them Thursday night at TD Garden. Patrice Bergeron and Nathan Horton each […]

Bruins Top Coyotes in OT 2-1, Extend Streak to 7

The Bruins looked to continue their unbelievable run as they journeyed into Phoenix on Wednesday night. The B’s are not just winning games lately, they’re dominating other hockey squads and making it look like they belong in a league of their own. After a rough start, they have gone 20-2-1 in their last 23 games, […]

Brad Marchand’s Hat Trick Boosts Bruins to 8-0 Win Over Panthers

Since starting the season 3-7, the Bruins can’t really find a way to lose. They entered Friday night’s clash with the Panthers as winners of 19 of their last 22 games, including one memorable blemish: a 2-0 loss to Florida back on Dec. 8. You have to imagine that despite the recent success, the Bruins must […]
