Miroslav Satan Nominated For NHL Goal of the Year

The 2009-2010 Boston Bruins will be remembered for a lot of things: underwhelming performances and epic collapses, mostly. Still, that’s not to say the whole season was a waste. Exhibit A: Miroslav Satan. Signed out of retirement in January, the 35-year-old Satan took his time getting his legs under him before kicking things up a […]

Flyers Flunk in Philly; B’s Take Game 3, 4-1

Behind 34 saves from the masterful performance of Tuukka Rask, the Boston Bruins have pushed the Philadelphia Flyers to the brink of elimination, after quieting the raucous Wachovia Center crowd with a 4-1 win in Game 3. Boston now enjoys a commanding 3-0 series lead and can close the Flyers out with just one more […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bruins Beat Sabres 4-3 in Game 6, Win Series

Just a month ago in early March, the Bruins were a team that seemed dead in the water and a certain victim of a first round playoff sweep…if they even made it that far. The team had just lost Marc Savard to a supposed season-ending concussion and initially failed to fight back in his honor. After a […]

Bruins Push Buffalo to Brink in 2OT Thriller, 3-2

Now that, my friends, was entertaining playoff hockey! It doesn’t get much better than Wednesday night’s Game 4 at the Garden, it just doesn’t. The nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat, back-and-forth play by both the Sabres and Bruins had casual fans riveted, had die hard fans exhilerated, and I think had Jack Edwards dangerously close to having a […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Sabres, Game 1

We weren’t sure whether or not the Boston area would get to enjoy playoff hockey this spring, but after a healthy winning streak to round out the regular season, not only are the Bruins (39-30-13, 91 points) in the playoffs, they got themselves up into the sixth seed in the East. Now, instead of having […]

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, […]

Boston Rakes In Victory Over Leafs With Playoff Spot, Draft Pick on Line

Following recent troubles, the Bruins rallied Saturday to drop the Maple Leafs 2-1 in OT. You could tell it would be a tough contest (despite it being Toronto) when Colton Orr (no relation to Bobby) snapped the puck past Tuukka Rask 5:10 into the game. And Michael Ryder got called for hooking 9:15 in, and […]

Bruins Make Playoff Case At Atlanta’s Expense

In a game that could have forced them out of the playoff brackets, the Bruins stepped up, swatting the Thrashers in Atlanta 4-0. The teams fought a largely back and forth battle, until the Bruins struck first blood at 9:25 into the 1st thanks to David Krejci. That didn’t sit well with the Thrashers, as […]

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 […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Saturday 3-6

Winners of five or their last six, the Bruins (28-23-11) take their show on the road for seven straight games, beginning with this afternoon’s game on Long Island to face the slumping New York Islanders. The seven-game roadie marks the longest road trip since the ’03-’04 season for the B’s. Boston is coming off a […]

Satan, Thomas Help Bruins End Home Losing Streak

A day after the Bruins failed to acquire a desperately needed goal-scorer, the team took the ice against the Maple Leafs, which served as a grim reminder they traded their best goal scorer to Toronto: Phil Kessel. The only “significant” offensive player added since Kessel’s departure was perhaps free agent signee Miroslav Satan, who had […]

Bruins Return From Vancouver Olympics With Assortment of Experiences

On Monday morning, the Boston Bruins hosted a closed practice at the TD Garden to prepare to host the Montréal Canadiens in their first game since the Olympic break began more than two weeks ago. Absent from the practice, however, were center Patrice Bergeron and goaltender Tim Thomas, who had yet to return from Vancouver, […]
