Islanders Jump on Rask, Win Easily

Matt Moulson scored his first goal of the night in the first period only six minutes into the game. He would later add two more, with one of them taken away and rightfully given to his teammate John Tavares. The Bruins struggled to stop the puck from going into their own net as they lost […]

Bruins Rally From Deficit, Survive Islanders

After the second period was over, it seemed like the Bruins were headed to their fourth straight lopsided affair to start the season, after a 4-1 loss opening night, a 7-2 win over the Hurricanes last Saturday, and a 6-1 loss to the Ducks in their previous game.

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Islanders, Saturday 10-10

Another ugly performance from the Bruins on Thursday kept the yo-yo start of Boston’s season going, as the 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Ducks made fans quickly forget the B’s drubbing of the ‘Canes the game before. At 1-2 now with two games left on this five-game season opening homestand, the Bruins hope […]

2009-10 NHL Eastern Conference Preview: Atlantic Division

The NHL’s Atlantic Division could easily be the toughest race to judge heading into this season. While this group of five boasts the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins, it also is stuck with the New York Islanders, a team seemingly forever in “rebuilding mode.” In between, tough, talented teams like the Flyers, Devils, and Rangers, will […]

Kessel Leads Bruins to Win Over Islanders

Despite going in and out of Claude Julien’s doghouse, 21-year-old Phil Kessel has had a strong season for the Bruins. It appears he finally has emerged as a top-goal scorer in the NHL, as long as he can keep his play consistent. Kessel reached the 30-goal plateau Saturday afternoon in a 2-1 win over the […]

Thomas Leads Bruins Past Islanders

The Bruins have now started a new hot streak, earning their fourth straight victory Thursday night thanks to a 2-1 win over the Islanders.
