Bruins Need to Look for Shawn Thornton’s Replacement

One of the pride points for the Boston Bruins over the last several years has been the depth of their offense and their ability to roll four lines every night. The effectiveness of their fourth line, fondly nicknamed the “Merlot” line, has been a thorn in the side of just about every time they play. […]

Bruins Looking for Answers after Early Exit

Is the President’s Trophy cursed? No, that would be ridiculous. But maybe… It’s been pretty well documented that teams that dominate during the regular season and win the President’s Trophy for first place finish in the league seemed to be doomed in the playoffs. Year after year, these teams tend to lose in the first […]

Brad Marchand: Little Ball of Disappointment

After the disappointing series loss to the Canadiens, I was trying to figure out how did the Bruins collapse? Was it the lack of production of the first line?

Bruins Have No Answer for Canadiens, Lose 4-0 in Game 6

Well, now we know how other teams felt all season long when they played the Bruins. From start to finish, Boston has dominated teams in every facet of the game during the whole regular season.

Bruins’ Late Push Just Not Enough to Beat Montreal in Game 3

Lars Eller’s empty net goal with three seconds remaining cemented a Canadiens victory in Game 3. As a Bruins fan, this was a frustrating one to watch not only for that fact that they lost, but how they lost. From the opening drop of the puck, the Montreal looked like the better team from top to […]

P.K. Subban Deserves Our Respect After Racist Tweets

If you’re a fan of the Boston Bruins, chances are that you don’t have many kind things to say about Montreal Canadien P.K. Subban. But, after rising above some idiotic comments made by some idiotic people Subban deserves at least a slight hat tip from Boston fans and residents alike. Ever since joining the Canadiens […]

Subban, Canadiens Sink the Bruins in 2OT to Take Game 1

51 shots on net wasn’t enough to beat Carey Price as the Boston Bruins fell to the Montreal Canadiens, 4-3, in double overtime of Game 1. The Bruins battled back from behind twice in the game, scoring three goals in the third period to force the game into OT, but the Canadiens capitalized on a power […]

2014 NHL Playoffs Preview: Bruins-Canadiens

Much of what made the Red Sox World Series win in 2004 so special is the legendary series against the Yankees. Similarly, a Bruins Cup run would seem incomplete without a match up against Montreal. Playing against a rival enhances all of the excitement, intensity, and emotions in the game and make victory that much sweeter. […]

Datsyuk’s Late Heroics Topple Bruins in Game 1

Well, it’s certainly not the start of the series that Bruins fans hoped for and expected. The Bruins team that finished 3rd in the league in goals was shutout by Jimmy Howard and the Detroit Red Wings, the lone goal of the game coming from an incredible individual effort by Pavel Datsyuk. The Bruins have had […]

How the NHL’s Western Conference Will be Won

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

The season ends Sunday, but a lot is still on the line. Despite seven Western slots being locked up, neither Western division has a winner. The top and low seeds in the conference are still very much up for grabs. In the East, the Bruins have the conference easily locked up, and are on the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

Just two weeks remain, yet many teams are still having difficulty gaining separation. Only one division has been clinched so far, but only one remains close.
