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. Boston had been struggling coming into action on Tuesday night, and needed a strong performance to begin turning their season around. They had lost their previous two games to Montreal, and came into the game against […]

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 […]

Bruins’ Comeback Attempt Falls Short; Sharks Win 4-2

It was a sloppy game for a good chunk of the night for the Bruins, and it resulted in a 4-2 loss to San Jose. Boston has been getting off to sluggish starts in the season and in individual games lately, and they did it again, surrendering a goal just 1:12 into the game off […]

Strong Power Play Helps Bruins Dominate Maple Leafs

When Shawn Thornton threw down with Toronto Maple Leaf right winger Colton Orr early in the Bruins’ game Thursday night at the TD Garden, he sent a clear message: No more listless hockey. We’re fighting back. And boy, did they ever. Four different Bruins posted three-point games, and two first-period power play goals kick-started a […]

Canes Storm Past Struggling B’s, 4-1

Fights are fantastic… but goals would be even better. Fists flew Tuesday night at TD Garden, with the Bruins racking up 70 penalty minutes on the night, the most since last February’s famously fight-filled feud with the Montreal Canadiens. The frustration level of the men wearing the spoked B has apparently bubbled over, and instead […]

Milan Hejduk Hands Rask First Loss of Season

The Bruins won over 60 percent of their faceoffs Monday against the Colorado Avalanche at the TD Garden. One of the few they lost came back to haunt them. Avalanche right winger Milan Hejduk scored with eight minutes gone in the third after teammate Peter Mueller won a faceoff in the Bruins’ zone, and goalkeeper […]

2011 Bruins Preview: Defensemen

While no one can deny that all of the awards and accolades Bruins goalie Tim Thomas received after last season’s historic Stanley Cup run were all very well-deserved, I’m here to tell you that hey, the guy didn’t do it all on his own. Without the talents of the Bruins’ “blue line brigade,” the team […]

Busy Month Ahead for Bruins as Cup Defense Begins

What a tough summer it has been for the Boston Bruins. “What victory party do I have to go to tonight?” “Where do I have to tote this heavy Stanley Cup to today?” “How many thousands of adoring fans am I going to have to shmooze with this time?” The trials and tribulations of a […]

Montreal Police to Interview Zdeno Chara Over Max Pacioretty Hit

Remember back in March when Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara ran Canadiens winger Max Pacioretty hard into the boards? The momentum led Pacioretty’s head to slam into the stanchion, knocking him out and ending his season. Chara was tossed from the game but did not receive further punishment by the NHL. He did however, face a potential […]

Burrows Scores 11 Seconds into OT to Give Canucks 3-2 Win; Bruins Down 0-2

Alex Freaking Burrows. The Vancouver Canucks could not have asked for a better night for their little biter in their 3-2 overtime win against the Boston Bruins Saturday night. Burrows was involved in all three of the Canuck goals, tallying up two goals and an assist on Hart Trophy finalist Daniel Sedin’s 9th playoff goal […]

Bruins Stanley Cup Game 1 Report Card: Thomas Great, Recchi Too Old

Quick Thoughts: Well, from a Boston Bruins perspective, one can chose to look at Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals two ways: 1. A wasted opportunity. A game that easily could be had — given Tim Thomas and his heroic efforts. Thomas won’t be able to replicate that performance throughout the series. Lastly, and most importantly, Boston […]

Raffi Torres Goal with 18.5 Left in Third Gives Canucks Stanley Cup Game One Victory

It was a classic goalie battle Wednesday night as the Stanley Cup finals began at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. No Canuck could get past Tim Thomas, but neither could any Bruin get past Robert Luongo. Both were impenetrable walls, denying any and every shot. Sticks, skates, helmets, gloves, whatever it took to block the puck. […]

Two-Goal Second Period Gives Thomas, Bruins 3-2 Lead In Eastern Conference Finals

The Tampa Bay Lightning held the Boston Bruins to just eight shots in the second period of Monday’s Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals at the TD Garden. The Bruins only needed two. Goals by Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand in the second period gave the Bruins the lead, and Tim Thomas stopped 33 […]

Here We Go Again: Bruins Top Flyers For 3-0 Series Lead

The Flyers now have the Bruins right where they want them. I don’t need to tell you what happened last year, but if you need a reminder: Philly rallied from a 3-0 series deficit to topple the Bruins on their way eventually to a Stanley Cup berth. The Flyers and Bruins find themselves in the […]
