Steven Stamkos Continues to Give Bruins Trouble As Forward Strikes Again Early (Video)

Steven Stamkos is good at hockey, and he seems intent on reminding the Bruins of that fact time and time again. The Tampa Bay forward scored in the first period of this one, giving him six goals in the last four games he’s faces the Bruins.

Vote: Will Steven Stamkos Lead the League in Goals This Season?

Any time teams around the league take on the Tampa Bay Lightning, coaches continue to ask the same question. “How do we stop Steven Stamkos?” The Tampa left winger led the NHL in goals last season when he put in 60 total goals throughout the year, which won him the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy.

Bruins-Lightning Provides Test of Strength Versus Strength As Teams Finally Meet With No Blizzards in Sight (Video)

The last time the Bruins tried to play the Lightning, Mother Nature had other ideas. There will be no such problems this time around.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is excited to (finally) see...

Where is Chris Kelly?

One of the biggest surprises of last year's Bruins season was a 20 goal, 39 point output from long-time Senators forward Chris Kelly, the best all-around season of his career. The performance is largely what earned him a 4-year, 12 million dollar contract with the team. But so far this year Kelly has been somewhat absent from the score sheet. Despite playing in all 14 games...

Nathan Horton Might Be Getting Ready to Breakout After Scoring Twice in Win Over Lightning

The Bruins love Nathan Horton, as he’s by all accounts, one of the best teammates any NHL player could ask for.

Bruins’ Top-Six Forwards Start to Click, Which Is Just What Club Needs to Stabilize Offense

The Bruins haven’t had much of an offensive breakout at any point this season, and some of that stems from the inability to get their top-six forwards all clicking at once. The talent is undoubtedly there for Claude Julien‘s top two lines, but getting that talent to shine all at once hasn’t quite happened yet. In Thursday’s 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, however, those...

Ty Anderson: Take Five: Horton hears a two as Bruins handle Bolts

Capping a brutal stretch that’s seen the Boston Bruins skate in just six games in the past 20 days, the Bruins’ third leg of a five-game road trip that’s included a loss in Buffalo and a win in Winnipeg found the Black-and-Gold in Tampa Bay for their first meeting of the year with the high-flying Lightning.
