Tuukka Rask Continuing to Draw Tim Thomas Comparisons With Stellar Play in Net (Video)

In 2011, Tim Thomas etched his name in NHL lore, playing some of the best hockey of his life to backstop the Bruins to a Stanley Cup championship.

Bruins score awesome tic-tac-toe goal

It’s not often that passing plays work out this perfectly, but this play was absolutely awesome.  The Boston Bruins big line of Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton executed a perfect “ABC” offensive zone entry on the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first period.  Horton drove wide, Lucic went hard to the net to draw the defenseman towards him, and David Krejci went to the high...

Bruins Grab ‘Steeltown Stunner’ Win From Penguins in Surprisingly Easy Fashion (Video)

It wasn’t supposed to be this easy. Right? The Bruins cruised to a 3-0 win over the Penguins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, laying waste to the expectations that many had set out for the team entering play.
