Former Bruin Stéphane Yelle Signs With Carolina Hurricanes

It seems that some Boston Bruins enjoy proverbs a bit too much. A current favorite: “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” Wednesday, center Stéphane Yelle became the second Bruin this offseason to join the Carolina Hurricanes, the team that pulled off a surprising upset of the Bruins in the second round of this past […]

Ex-Eagle, Quasi-former Bruin Forward Patrick Eaves Signs With Red Wings

Patrick Eaves, the right-winger who was a Boston Bruin for less than one week in July, signed a one-year contract worth $500,000 with two-time defending Western Conference champions, the Detroit Red Wings. The Bruins acquired the 25-year-old forward and a fourth-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for […]

Bruins Trade Aaron Ward To Carolina

In what must be an effort to free up space for a Phil Kessel signing down the road, the Bruins today traded veteran defenseman Aaron Ward to Carolina in exchange for right winger Patrick Eaves and a fourth-round draft pick. Immediately after acquiring Eaves, GM Peter Chiarelli placed the 25-year-old winger on waivers for the […]

Scott Walker’s Wife Diagnosed With Cancer

While we may no have been the biggest fans of Scott Walker, it looks like he learned of some difficult news during the Bruins series: his wife, Julie, was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The good news is she is expected to make a full recovery. Walker held back from discussing the hard news at all […]

Carolina Knocks Bruins Out in OT

The Carolina Hurricanes put an end to the magical season for the Bruins as Scott Walker (yes, the guy who sucker punched Aaron Ward in Game 5) scored with just more than a minute left in the first overtime to send the Canes to the Conference Finals and the Bruins to the golf course. “I […]

Bruins Dominate in Game 5 Win

The team that crushed the Montreal Canadiens has come back to play at last against the Hurricanes. The Bruins shutout the Carolina Hurricanes in convincing fashion with a 4-0 victory. The Bruins started out the game with strong play on both ends of the rink. They took care of the puck with great skating and […]

Bruins in Trouble, Down 3-1 in Series

After a dominating 4-1 win in Game 1, the Bruins seemed satisfied with the way they were performing. Why wouldn’t they be? The Bruins were 5-0 in the playoffs, and 5-0 overall this season against the Hurricanes. Then, like a hurricane (I had to use the analogy), Carolina mowed down the Bruins for three straight […]

Hurricanes Shut Out Bruins, Tie Series 1-1

In my opinion, the only chance any team has of beating the Boston Bruins in a playoff series is to have a white-hot goaltender. It looks as if the Hurricanes will ride on the coat tails of Cam Ward, who stopped 36 shots against the Bruins Sunday night for his second shutout in the last four […]

Savard Scores Twice, Bruins Win Game 1

The Bruins won their fifth straight playoff game, beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 in Game 1 of their second-round series. The B’s have won each game of the 2009 NHL Playoffs by at least two goals (thanks to a couple empty-netters against Montreal) and seem poised to coast to the Eastern Conference Finals. First, they […]

Bruins to Face Hurricanes in Round 2

It took two seven-game series with wild finishes, but the Bruins finally know their opponent in Round 2. They will face the Carolina Hurricanes thanks to the NHL’s re-seeding of the second round series. Had the Rangers beat the Capitals, the Bruins would draw the Rangers instead of the winner of the Canes/Devils series. But, […]

Bruins End Skid With 5-1 Win

The Bruins, consitently good all season, were in the midst of their first rough stretch in quite awhile. Losers of a season-high four straight games (0-2-2), the B’s were in desperate need of a win over medicore Carolina Hurricanes (28-25-5). Matt Cullen scored his 15th goal 11:03 into the first period to give the ‘Canes […]
