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 Beat Leafs Again, Point Streak At 14 Games

The last time the Bruins had a regulation loss (back on Oct. 29), the Red Sox were without a manager, Julian Edelman hadn’t been arrested yet, and the NBA was still in a lockout with no end in sight.

Boston’s highly disappointing start to the season continued Saturday in Montreal, as they fell 4-2 to the hated Habs.
