Players of the Night: Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins: Bergeron came into Saturday three points shy of 700 for his NHL career. He reached that mark in the first period, scoring twice and adding an assist as the Bruins put up five against the Carolina
Shawn Thornton, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille were never statistical marvels or great scorers at the NHL level, and their fancy stats were never really all that impressive for those that judge hockey simply by bar graphs and esoteric puck possession formulas. Nobody will ever forget the way the B's fourth line dictated the pace […]
GOLD STAR: They weren't rewarded until late in the game with actual points, but Tim Schaller and his fourth line cohorts were dominant throughout the game. Schaller finally got on the board through a nice play by Sean Kuraly that his linemate popped in on the rebound. While it's clear that the Bruins third line […]
The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to TD Garden on Wednesday night to take on the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics, in perhaps the biggest game for either team since they met on October 17, opening night. Isaiah Thomas, though, won’t be suiting up against the team he left in the summer. Thomas played 19 minutes on his […]
It turns out that Brandon Carlo‘s gaffe didn’t mean all that much during Tuesday’s game between the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders, aside from costing Tuukka Rask another shutout. To hear head coach Doug Weight explain it, this boils down to getting tougher. “We have a good team and I told the guys that,” […]
The Boston Bruins hope to begin 2018 by picking up where they left off in 2017. The New York Islanders, meanwhile, need a fresh start more than perhaps any playoff contender. A pair of potential playoff teams traveling in different directions will meet Tuesday night when the Islanders host the Bruins at Barclays Center.
The Boston Bruins pushed aside the reeling Ottawa Senators – again. Ryan Spooner scored twice and Tuukka Rask made 25 saves in the Bruins' 5-0 victory over the Senators on Saturday night.

The Boston Bruins pushed aside the reeling Ottawa Senators – again. Noel Acciari, David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron also scored for the Bruins, 5-1 winners over the Senators on Wednesday night in Boston. Ottawa was shut out five times in December, going 4-8-2 in the month.
Things have completely unravelled in Ottawa. There’s no better way to show displeasure with your team than by throwing a jersey on the ice. Following Ottawa’s 5-0 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday, an emotionally wounded fan sent a message to the team by tossing their $300 sweater on the ice.
Things were good early when the Bruins jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, but Washington made their push in the second when Lars Eller scored from the slot on a loose puck in front of the net. It appeared that Washington winger Brett Connolly was clearly off-side on the zone entry […]
The Montreal Canadiens lost ugly, while Max Pacioretty trade rumors swirl. Things are as bad – or worse – for the Ottawa Senators after a humbling 5-0 loss to the Boston Bruins. After a rare, welcomed 5-4 win against the Blue Jackets on Friday, Ottawa fell to 12-17-8, aka “not that far ahead of the […]
Boston Bruins forward Tim Schaller did his part to make Fredrik Claesson of the Ottawa Senators pay for a hit that hurt Noel Acciari during last night's win for the B's.
