Seguin, Chara Named 2012 NHL All-Stars

One of the best teams in the NHL, the Bruins, will be well-represented at the NHL All-Star Game in February. Joining goalie Tim Thomas, who is set to start in net, will be forward Tyler Seguin and defenseman Zdeno Chara. In just his second season, Seguin leads the B’s with 17 goals and 38 points […]

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.

Bruins Finish November Unbeaten in Regulation With 6-3 Win Over Toronto

Toronto came into the night riding a three game winning streak and had a one point lead over the Bruins, but Boston was too much for the Leafs and came away with a 6-3 win. Boston had control of the puck for most of the early portion of the first period until Rich Pervely went […]

Bruins Den: (Winning Streak) Back At One

Well, all good things – Thanksgiving vacation, lipsmacking leftovers, and winning streaks – must end, right? Fortunately, some things start right back up again (alright, vacation and leftovers have a few weeks until Christmas), like the Boston Bruins’ (14-7-1, 29 points) winning streak, which is back at one and looking to rise with this week’s […]

Bruins Overcome Slow Start to Ground Jets

Winnipeg made some early noise, but in the end, Boston came roaring back to defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2. Tim Thomas made a great 5-hole save early on during the first Winnipeg power play on a tough shot, but the Jets later came roaring through the neutral zone before Boston knew what hit them, resulting […]

Bruins Overcome Two-Goal Deficit Against Sabres, Win Tenth Straight in Shootout

The Buffalo Sabres start fights. The Boston Bruins finish them. And they win games. Zdeno Chara‘s power play goal in the third period of Wednesday’s game in Buffalo completed a two-goal comeback, and Benoit Pouliot scored in the fifth round of the shootout to beat the Sabres, 4-3. The Bruins have now won 10 games […]

Bruins Pound Islanders for 8th Straight Win

The Bruins opened the first of three on their current road trip in Long Island against the Islanders on Saturday night. The game signified a bizzarre stretch in the schedule where the Bruins play the three road games after only having played four previously all season. Earlier this month the B’s shelled New York in […]

Bruins Finish Perfect Homestand with Shootout Victory over Blue Jackets

The Boston Bruins have shown that when they want to, they can play beautiful hockey, combining explosive scoring with punishing defense and near-perfect goal-tending. Thursday night at the TD Garden, the Bruins showed they can play ugly and still win. Sometimes, all you need is a goalie. Tuukka Rask made 30 saves in regulation and […]

Bruins’ November Roll Continues Against Buffalo

Boston just can’t be beaten lately. Not even close. On Saturday, their next victim was Buffalo. The Sabres lost 6-2, in a rough showing. It didn’t start that way, though. Boston had the majority of shots in the 1st, though it was Buffalo who struck first blood at 5:38 on a wrist shot from Thomas […]

Bruins Find Spark, Defeat Senators

On a great offensive night, the Bruins turned around their recent struggles with a nice 5-3 win against Ottawa.

Bruins Den: Struggling B’s Hear a BOO!

Happy Halloween, Hub hockey fans! You need not look far for anything scary this year! Just check out the NHL standings, where you’ll find the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins (3-7-0, 6 points) dead last in the Eastern Conference and second worst in the league (thanks to the Columbus Blue Jackets, who at 2-9-1 […]

Bruins Mostly Flat in Loss in Montreal

Boston’s highly disappointing start to the season continued Saturday in Montreal, as they fell 4-2 to the hated Habs. The Bruins had a few moments, though for the most part they were rather lackluster. After some early energy, Boston got sloppy with the puck. After some assistance from the referees on a questionable holding call […]
