Looking Back and Ahead at the Bruins

Playoff hockey returned to Boston this spring and boy it felt good. The Boston Bruins returned to the Stanley Cup playoffs this season after a two-year absence and although they were knocked out in six games by the Ottawa Senators, the B’s accomplished what many wanted from the onset of the campaign: Playoff hockey.

Inconsistency Will Continue For Bruins Unless A Change Is Made

Last night the Bruins beat the St. Louis Blues 5-3 in what many would call their best outing of the season. Goals from Brad Marchand (2), Frank Vatrano, Torey Krug, and Brandon Carlo paced the offense for the B’s and put the game out of reach against a Blues squad that looked flat for most […]

Five Bruins Prospects in 2017 World Junior Championship

This year’s 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship will be one to watch for Bruins fans looking to get a glimpse into the future roster on Causeway Street. In the annual post-Christmas Day tournament, the B’s boast five prospects from three different countries that all will be competing for a gold medal. The yearly World Junior […]

Bruins Quick Hits

Drafting David Pastrnak 25th overall back in 2014 is looking more and more like a steal after each passing game. Pastrnak scored a pair of goals in the Bruins 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers Tuesday night, including an overtime game-winner that put Cats goaltender Roberto Luongo’s jock-strap to the rafters, and sent B’s fans into pandemonium at […]

A Closer Look Into the Bruins First Month of the Season.

Despite what the standings may show before the Thanksgiving break, this years Bruins team is on the right track. As of Nov. 23 the B’s currently hold the second Wild Card spot with 22 points and have been playing inspired hockey as of late. Let me speak for the majority of Bruins fans here when I say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised […]

Brad Marchand Resigns with Bruins for 8 years $49 million

It looks like Brad Marchand will remain a Bruin for the considerable future as he has just been signed to a new 8 year contract extension worth $49 million, according to multiple sources.

The Ultimate World Cup of Hockey Preview

The last time the NHL hosted a World Cup tournament the year was 1996. Independence Day was the number one movie in America, Seinfeld was at the peak of it’s popularity, the Dallas Cowboys were actually good, and I was just days old. 20 years ago the USA squad, led by Brett Hull and Mike Richter, ran […]

9 Bruins Games to Circle on your Calendar

With the long-awaited Jimmy Vesey Sweepstakes, or #VeseyWatch as it was known on Twitter, coming to an unfortunate end last week after the North Reading, MA native decided to sign in the Big Apple with the Rangers instead of his hometown team, the buzz around this upcoming Bruins season has taken somewhat of a hit. The questions surrounding this […]

Vesey is Key to Rest of Bruins Offseason Plan

Jimmy Vesey, the Harvard product who won the Hobey Baker Award as the best player in college hockey last season, is about to end all the drama and mystery when he chooses which NHL team he wants to play for on August 15th. When Vesey spurned the Nashville Predators this past spring and refused to […]

The Curious Case of Jimmy Garoppolo

On July 15th Tom Brady announced to the world he would no longer seek legal action in the infamous “Deflategate” scandal, thus ending the longest, and quite possibly the most ridiculous sports story ever, that was endlessly talked about for the better part of a year and a half. At that moment, it became clear Brady […]

Bruins Better Off Waiting to Re-Sign Marchand

Summertime isn’t the most exciting time as far as hockey rumors go, especially when the biggest news surrounding the Bruins roster is waiting for unrestricted free-agent and Hobey Baker winner Jimmy Vesey to decide which team he’ll play for next season. However, Brad Marchand has recently made headlines not for his on ice antics, rather what his next contract […]

Westbrook to Boston?

According to Howard Beck of bleacherreport.com, the Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to trade point guard Russell Westbrook and the Boston Celtics are, “the most likely destination,” for him to land. The Celtics recently lost out on the Kevin Durant sweepstakes when he opted to sign with the Golden State Warriors on July 4th, but now it looks like […]

UFA Defensemen the Bruins Should Target

Since the Bruins failed to address their one glaring need of signing a capable defenseman at the start of free agency, they are left with limited options and signing an unrestricted free agent seems to be the way to go. Don Sweeney and Cam Neely must find a diamond-in-the-rough type of player in the remaining UFA group of defensemen now that big names Keith Yandle (6 […]

Trouba is NOT the Savior the Bruins Need

  Don’t get me wrong, I would love to have Jacob Trouba on the Boston Bruins. He’s a promising young defenseman that instantly makes the B’s blueline more skilled. However, if the Bruins plan on using an offer sheet on the 22 year-old, forcing them to give up their next four first round picks plus pay him a […]

Bruins Draft: Good But Not Great

The Bruins went into the 2016 NHL draft with relatively high expectations. With the Celtics head-scratching draft the night before stealing much of the attention of casual Boston sports fans, the B’s entered the draft with uncertainty around who would be available for their first selection at 14, as well as the constant rumors that Don Sweeney […]
