As the Bruins continue to take it to the league’s best competition on the ice, they still find time to give back to communities off the ice. A number of Bruins, including head coach Claude Julien, center Tyler Seguin and rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton, took a trip down to Newtown, Conn., on Monday. The B’s payed their respects to the families and children of Newtown, while signing a few autographs and playing street hockey with the kids. Everyone had an opportunity to take a picture with the players and even had a chance to snap a photo with Lord Stanley’s Cup. For all the help the Bruins brought to Newtown, the kids presented Julien & Co. with a Newtown hockey sweaters as a token of their appreciation. Check out some photos from the team’s trip below. The day in Newtown is off to a great start, with street hockey, photos with the Cup & lots of smiling faces...^CS http://t.co/A71MbpT6— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) February 18, 2013 B's have arrived in Newtown...Dougie &...

Dougie Hamilton’s Early NHL Success Comes as No Surprise to Those Who Watched Him Grow

Dougie Hamilton‘s skill and talent level have been easy to see through the first quarter of his first NHL season. Occasional glimpses of that are to be expected of a first-round draft pick who many pegged as a fixture on the Bruins’ blue line for years to come. However, it is a bit surprising that the 19-year-old has been so effective already. He’s been trusted to play important...

The Bruins were able to provide a day to remember for a community that has withstood such incredible hardship over the past few months.

Children and families from the community were able to participate in a street hockey clinic...

7 Bruins Missing From Practice with Flu

ESPN Boston- WILMINGTON, Mass. – The Bruins gained one, but lost seven for Tuesday morning’s practice at Ristuccia Arena. A sizeable school vacation week crowd saw Milan Lucic return to the ice, after missing the Bruins’ Sunday game in Winnipeg for a personal matter. There was plenty of available ice, however, as seven players were held out with flu-like symptoms. The...

Flu Bug Hits Bruins Practice As Team Prepares to Travel to Tampa (Video)

The Bruins have fully recovered from the injury bug that hit the team earlier this season, but another bug held several B’s players out of practice this week.

Brad Marchand Completes ‘Road Trip Rally’ as Bruins Come Back Against Jets (Video)

The Bruins answered the bell against the Jets on Sunday. Then, they did it again. Boston came back from two one-goal deficits to beat Winnipeg in the MTS Centre, claiming the team’s first W in the not-so-friendly Manitoban confines. Despite missing out on some chances early, the Bruins held on in the game’s frantic final seconds to escape with two points. Brad Marchand kept up...

Shawn Thornton’s Penalty Shot Highlights Bruins’ Short History With Jets

Bruins fans are accustomed to seeing Shawn Thornton settling things on the ice with his fists, but many forget that he’s capable of pulling some nifty offensive maneuvers as well. That was on display in a game between the B’s and Winnipeg Jets back on Jan. 10, 2012, when the Boston brawler used some fancy stickwork to beat Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec on a penalty shot. But don’t...

Bruins Go To Newtown On Off Day; Prove Awesomeness

From the Bruins:    You often hear "putting smiles on kids' faces" as the importance of offering support to the community, but that was - truly - at the core of the visit. "Important is probably a real small word," said Coach Julien. "For us, it was something that we really wanted to do. The fact that we have that opportunity to come...

Bruins Letting Good Chances Slip Away Again After Getting Burned for It Against Sabres (Video)

The Bruins are getting plenty of good chances against the Winnipeg Jets — now, it’s just up to the B’s to start capitalizing on them. Once again, Boston seems the better team early on, but the scoreboard has yet to reflect that. After seeing a lead slip away against the Sabres that could have been insurmountable, the Bruins would do well to start taking advantage of the chances...

Late Second-Period Goal Key in ‘Desperation’ Game for Bruins (Video)

Those who chose to take an early intermission break during Sunday’s Bruins-Jets game were sorely mistaken. Evander Kane scored to give Winnipeg a 2-1 lead with 27 seconds remaining in the second period, but the action didn’t cease there.

Ty Anderson: Praised depth needs to show up for Bruins

For years now, we’ve lauded the front office strategy of the Boston Bruins. Understandably so. Rather than build a team around one superstar, the Black-and-Gold have built one of the league’s best rosters based on their ability to roll four lines at all times. They can beat you with the first line, or they could beat you with the third line. Hell, maybe even the...

RECAP: Boston Went America All Over Winnipeg's Asses. BRUINS WIN!

  Whoa boy. Another win that was less than pretty. But every two points counts this season, so they don't have to be works of art. Still it'd be nice to see the Bs blow a ****** team out like the Winnipeg Jets once in a while. Bruins did a pretty good job defensively today, keeping the shot count down (24 shots) and the Jets scoring chances to a minimum. Well, that was...
