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.

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 Roll in Philadelphia, Take Over Top Spot in Eastern Conference

Zdeno Chara made his return to the Bruins line up today as the Bruins took down the Flyers 6-0 in Philadelphia. The Bruins had a great start to the game when Benoit Pouliot re-directed a nice pass from Rich Peverley 27 seconds into the game. Zdeno Chara made sure his return was noticed when he […]

Sputtering Bruins End Losing Streak in Columbus

It took a while to get on track in this game and the past few games, but the Boston Bruins finally started a new winning streak in Columbus, taking the win 5-3. Starting the game, it looked like Boston’s losing streak would be pushed to three games; just 5:46 in, the Blue Jackets took the […]

Seguin Returns as Panthers Shut Out Bruins 2-0

The Florida Panthers shut out the Bruins 2-0 Thursday night. Despite out-shooting the Panthers 40-30, the B’s couldn’t get one by Jose Theodore. The Panthers have been one of the surprise teams this season in the NHL. Coming into Thursday, the Panthers sat in third place in the Eastern Conference, also riding a two-game winning streak and […]
