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 Comeback Falls Short, Lose 4-3 to Washington

Maybe three consecutive victories is just a little too much to ask for from the Boston Bruins. On Saturday the first attempt at that feat in 2012 came up short, as the banged up team suffered a 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals. 1st Period There wasn’t a great feel in at the TD Garden […]

Two-Goal Third Gives Bruins First Winning Streak Since January

The Boston Bruins have rarely played “complete” hockey over the last two months, alternating losses with frustrating, indecisive victories. And on those few occasions when they submitted a complete game, they never followed it with a second. No more. The Bruins capitalized on two goals in the final period Thursday night at TD Garden, beating […]

Bruins Bounce Back with 5-4 Win in Toronto

The Bruins escaped Toronto with a 5-4 victory Wednesday, improving to 5-0 against the Leafs this season. Goals coming from the top and bottom of the line-up helped the Bruins get the win. Jordan Caron is in the middle of his best stretch of pro hockey, with three goals in the last two games. The Leafs hung […]

Is Zdeno Chara Overrated ?

I completely understand if you think I’m crazy for thinking Bruins captain Zdeno Chara is overrated. He is undoubtedly one of the toughest guys to play against, probably one of the scariest players on ice , and has the hardest shot in the league. I have taken it upon myself to really pay attention to his […]

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 Survive Late Meltdown to Down Senators

It was a tough start and finish for Boston, but they had enough meat in the middle to finish off the win in Ottawa, 5-3. Boston did get one chance with immediate pressure, but did nothing with it except give up pressure themselves. Erik Karlsson took advantage, surprising Tim Thomas just 1:10 into the game. […]

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 […]

Bruins Turn Predators Into Prey in Saturday Matinee

The Bruins had to hold their breath late into another game on their shaky stretch, but in the end, they got the job done against Nashville, 4-3, in a shootout. The Bruins did keep up the offense, but Tim Thomas didn’t have the best day against a Nashville offense that didn’t get more than seven […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The 2012 All-Star game will be held in Ottawa on Jan. 29. The fantasy draft, meanwhile, will be held on the 26th. Zdeno Chara and home town hero Daniel Alfredsson will be selecting the teams.
