Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 1

Is it too soon to talk about the Bruins yet, or is the sting of last spring’s playoff collapse still too painful to overcome? Personally, as tough as it may be to do, I say we turn the page to the next chapter: the 2010-11 NHL season. The B’s are off and running this month […]

Seguin Pens Contract, Puts Bruins Over Salary Cap

Today the Bruins inked a deal with their top draft pick, Tyler Seguin, but the contract puts the Bruins over the salary cap. Who will the B’s get rid of to get back under the cap? The Bruins and their second-overall pick agreed to terms on a three-year contract that can be worth up to […]

Bruins Sign Four Players With Salary Cap Space Dwindling

The NHL off-season wages on, and the Bruins remain one of the more active teams in the market. Thursday, GM Peter Chiarelli took care of some in-house business, inking four Bruins to new deals, including newly acquired Gregory Campbell, forward Jeff LoVecchio, and a pair of defensemen, Adam McQuaid and Andrew Bodnarchuk. Campbell, who came […]

Lots Bruin’: B’s Sign Recchi, Draft Seguin, Trade Sobotka, etc.

Hockey’s hot stove season has heated up and nowhere is it hotter than here in the Hub of Hockey. Highlighted by the NHL entry draft this past weekend and the selection of overall No. 2 pick Tyler Seguin, the Boston Bruins have put themselves in the center of it all, with moves being made, and […]

Making the Grade: Bruins 2009-2010 Season Report Card

More than a week after the “choke heard ‘round the world,” the Bruins have since cleaned out their lockers and spread out to all corners of this great continent, to begin what will surely be a long and frustrating off-season. They came into the season with high expectations, with many hockey experts picking the B’s […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Game 5

The Bruins will take their second shot at knocking the Flyers out of the Cup hunt tonight, as the series returns to the TD Garden for Game 5 with Boston enjoying a 3-1 lead. Boston had their chances to complete the four-game sweep of Philly on Friday night, but an overtime goal by Simon Gagne […]

Did Ainge and Savard Make Boston Look Dirty?

For anyone hoping to garnish some good will in a sports nation that has all but fallen in love with hating us, you can forget it. Between Marc Savard “biting” Dan Carcillo during a post-whistle scuffle in Game 2 of the Bruins-Flyers series, and Danny Ainge tossing a towel in the air to distract Cleveland […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Game 3

After two nail-biting victories on Garden ice, the B’s take to the road, heading south on I-95 to the “City of Brotherly Tasers,” as the second round series shifts to Philadelphia for tonight’s Game 3. Boston narrowly escaped the first two games of this series, winning each with late game-winning goals, most recently in Game […]

Late Goal By Lucic Gives Bruins 2-0 Series Lead

You can’t help but acknowledge the irony. Amidst the celebration at TD Garden on Monday night, as the Boston Bruins took a commanding 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven semifinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers, The Standells’ “Love That Dirty Water” was blaring across the arena just like it would after any Bruins victory. But it […]

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 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Game 1

Off we go, as the Bruins and Flyers match up in the second round of the NHL playoffs. The Flyers are here after an improbable 5-game whooping of Ilya Kovalchuk and the New Jersey Devils, while the B’s were able to get past Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres in 6 games in order to […]

Savard Cleared to Play and Set to Return, But Should He?

On Tuesday morning, Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli gave Boston’s faithful more than just the team’s 4-2 series win over the Buffalo Sabres in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs as he announced that center Marc Savard is set to play after fully recovering from his concussion. Savard, out since suffering the Grade […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Game 6

The Bruins will make their second attempt at ousting the Buffalo Sabres, as they host Game 6 of their opening round playoff series at TD Garden tonight. Boston got some welcome news Saturday from the league offices, as they rescinded captain Zdeno Chara’s instigator penalty that he was given at the end of Friday’s 4-1 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Game 5

I know I am only here to preview the Bruins-Sabres Game 5 tonight, but before I begin, I’ve got to say that in the history of the collective Boston sports world, has there ever been as big a night as tonight is shaping up to be? I mean sure, any time the Pats are in […]
