Does a Puck-Moving Defensemen Work in This System?

For the past few years around trade deadline time and in the offseason we have heard about the Bruins looking for a puck-moving defenseman. The Bruins have had a few different guys in past seasons play that role, but it never seems to work out like we thought it was supposed to. Dennis Wideman, Derrick […]

2012 NHL Fantasy Draft: Zdeno Chara and Daniel Alfredsson are Good GMs

Thursday night the NHL All Star Draft happened in Ottawa. Zdeno Chara and Daniel Alfredsson captained the two teams selecting two All-Star rosters. Chara called the puck toss and won the first pick. Pavel Datsyuk was the first name called. Many people thought Chara would take Tim Thomas (though he did grab him in the second […]

Bruins Hang On To Beat Panthers Before All-Star Break

Just a day after learning Marc Savard suffered a moderate concussion after his hit Saturday against the Avalanche, the Bruins took the ice against the Panthers. Savard, who is now resting at home in Ontario and may not return this season…or ever, likely watched the B’s beat the Panthers 2-0 in the final game before […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Panthers, Thursday November 18th

The Bruins (10-5-1) return home tonight to host former Bruin Dennis Wideman and the Florida Panthers (8-8-0) at TD Garden. Tonight marks the first of four meetings between the two squads. Both teams were on the winning end of one-goal games last night. For Florida, they took a 2-1 victory over the Thrashers in Atlanta, […]

B’s Fall to Florida, 3-2

The Bruins evened up their preseason record at 1-1 Thursday night, dropping a close one to the Florida Panthers, 3-2 at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY. Boston fell behind nearly midway through the first period when David Booth tapped home his own rebound for Florida’s first goal on the night. Bruins defenseman Steve […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Game 2

After an exciting, edge-of-your-seat thriller in Game 1, tonight’s Game 2 between the Bruins and Flyers surely has a lot to live up to. Optimists would consider Boston’s five-goal offensive outburst, capped by the storybook game-winner by Marc Savard, reason to celebrate, and it certainly was. But Saturday’s Game 1 provided plenty of fodder for […]

Savard Scores OT Game Winner In Heroic Return to Send Bruins Past Flyers

Marc Savard, Boston’s offensive spark who had not played in an NHL game since suffering a Grade 2 concussion on March 7, scored the game-winning overtime goal to give the Bruins a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in the first game of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Semi-finals. Savard, playing in his first playoff game […]

Bergeron Gets Game-Winner, Bruins Lead Series 2-1

Rub your eyes again. The sixth-seeded Boston Bruins are now two wins away from advancing to the second round. Something that seemed so improbable just weeks ago is now a reality. The Bruins are a good team…well at least they’re playing like it. In his 45,090,000th playoff game (well, really 154th), Mark Recchi did his […]

Bruins Help Themselves in Playoff Push, Beat Sabres 3-1

Needing a win to help its playoff chances, the Boston Bruins hosted the Buffalo Sabres Thursday night. The Sabres gave the B’s a gift before the game even started, as they sat their All-Star and Olympian goalie Ryan Miller. Miller is 40-18-8 on the season so it’s a good thing that he wasn’t playing. Instead, […]

Bruins Can’t Capitalize, Lose 3-2 in OT

They were able to gain one precious point from Monday’s game in Washington, but the Bruins couldn’t seal the deal in overtime against the league’s best team, losing on a Brooks Laich power play goal not even a minute into the extra period, falling to the Caps 3-2 at Verizon Center. Dennis Wideman, who scored […]

Bruins Maintain Grip on 8th Playoff Spot

In many respects, the Bruins’ season ended in Thursday’s 3-0 loss to the Penguins. While they won a fight against Matt Cooke as a form of retribution for Marc Savard’s season-ending concussion, they played some of the most uninspired hockey you’ll ever see in mustering only 17 shots on goal. How can a team fighting […]

Bruins De-Claw Panthers In Exciting Pre-Olympic Finale

For a while, it looked like the 10-game losing streak Bruins might be back, but they pulled out a fourth straight win, 3-2 in a shootout. They got off to an inauspicious start, when Derek Morris was called for hooking, giving Florida a power play 10 seconds in. The Bruins managed to kill it off, […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Senators, Monday 1-18

The Bruins (23-16-8) return home to TD Garden this afternoon for a holiday matinee skate with the Ottawa Senators (24-21-4). Boston and Ottawa are separated in the standings by just two points, with the Bruins currently occupying the fifth spot in the East and Ottawa sitting in the seventh seed. Boston is coming off a […]

Battered Bruins Struggle to Score Again, Lose 3-1

With word that the team has lost center Marc Savard and forward Byron Bitz for an extended period time, the Bruins face an up-hill battle over the next couple months. With the 2010 Winter Olympics in February, the league’s schedule becomes tighter heading toward the big event, which means 3-4 games per week. That’s not […]

Boston Bruins Mid-Season Report Card

Having played their 41st game of the season – a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers – the Boston Bruins are now halfway through their regular season and currently stand at 21-13-7, for a total of 49 points. Despite a sluggish start during which they alternated wins and losses (until they hit two three-game […]
