Chara Helps Bruins to 4-1 Win Over Devils

Consistency is the key in the NHL. For some teams, it’s like getting up in the morning. For others, it’s like trying to ride a bike again, but you just can’t stay up. The Boston Bruins have seemed like the latter. The team has looked like a Stanley Cup caliber team at times, but then […]

Three Steps To Get The Bruins Back Into The Playoffs

For the Boston Bruins, the current season has been a far cry from last season’s Eastern-Conference-winning effort and the expectations that accompanied such a feat. Winless at the TD Garden in 2010, the Bruins have lost eight in a row and ten of their last eleven, with that sole win coming in a shootout. The […]

Ilya Kovalchuk Trade Rumors: to the Bruins?

The Bruins, who are clearly in free fall mode after losing eight of their last nine games, are in need of some serious change.
