PLAYERS: Claude Julien
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, The Bruins are undefeated since they escaped elimination May 13. That was the night it all kicked in. It was “The Miracle On Ice” of the New Millennium. Faced with what appeared to be certain extinction, the Bruins staged the comeback of the ages. They flipped the switch one last time. Claude Julien’s Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde team became a monster that cannot be stopped. “Since Toronto, no doubt,’’ said Julien when asked about his team’s new charge. “You don’t just see it on the ice. You feel it in the dressing room. This is a very focused group right now. The Jekyll-Hyde thing I haven’t seen since the Toronto series.’’ And now the Bruins are on the threshold of the conference finals and have a real shot at their second Stanley Cup in three seasons. read on

Jaromir Jagr Hosts, Visits With Children of Boston First Responders After Game 2 in Boston (Photo)

Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr took to the ice following Game 2 against the Rangers on Sunday to get some extra work in. That’s not all he was doing, however, after the team’s 5-2 win against New York. Jagr also spent time after the game hanging out with a group of children. The group of 20 kids, which are all members of the Boys and Girls Club, are also children of Boston first...

Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Drops F Bomb On Reporter

A.B. According to Toucher & Rich and descriptions/comments on numerous websites – the unnamed reporter from 98.5 The Sports Hub angered Bruins goalie, Tuukka Rask, by touching (and possibly knocking over) his iPad. For me, the story isn’t the swearing on live television. For me, the stare down is the story. If Tuukka had punched the reporter in the face I wouldn’t have...

Tuukka Rask’s Tumble Opens Window for Rangers Comeback, But Bruins Have Ability to Slam It Shut (Video)

The Rangers scored one of the strangest goals you’ll ever see in the second period of Thursday’s Game 4 against the Bruins, and it energized the team. Luckily, the Bruins had an “energy” line waiting to help neutralize the threat.

It marked just the third time in AHL history...

Dennis Seidenberg ‘Getting Better Every Day,’ Optimistic About Game 4 Return (Video)

As you probably know, Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg has been out of action since Game 7 against the Maple Leafs. Luckily for him, the B’s have been just fine in Seidenberg’s absence, and he admits that it makes it easier to take an additional day to get healthy knowing that your teammates are taking care of business. Even though he’s not on the ice, Seidenberg has a pretty...

Feel like the hockey gods just won’t let Shawn Thornton score? So does Jack Edwards. After the Bruins’ Game 3 win over the New York Rangers to take a commanding 3-0 series lead, Edwards took some time to talk to the Loren & Wally show on WROR.

Bruis Vs. Rangers: Keys To Game 4

Tonight the Boston Bruins have a chance to sweep the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Semi Finals.

Bruins, Rangers team up for double high sticks

Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin was bringing the puck into the zone when he went to put a shot on net.  As he shot, New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider put his stick out to poke check, and Seguin’s follow through ended up riding all the way up Kreider’s stick and Kreider was hit in the face.  At the same time Rangers defenseman Steve Eminger was trying to impede Seguin...

Jeff Gorton, Bruins Give Hope For The Future

Suffice to say that a 3-0 series deficit was not the plan. The powerplay is more miserable than it has ever been, and that is saying a lot. Brad Richards has, in one season, gone from playoff hero to playoff zero. Injuries are affecting important players. The Rangers look like a team with no confidence.  That being said, at some point we have to acknowledge that the Bruins...
