Found January 23, 2013 on NESN.com:
The Providence Bruins may have opened some eyes in the Boston Bruins’ front office last week when the AHL affiliate took down the big boys in a scrimmage at TD Garden. Perhaps no member of the Baby B’s stood out more than journeyman forward Bobby Robins. The 31-year-old Wisconsin native showed no fear going against the NHL club, pushing and shoving every chance he got. At one point he caught the attention of both Zdeno Chara and Shawn Thornton in a post-whistle scrum. Things came to a head in the third period when Robins and Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid dropped the gloves at one of the blue lines and went toe-to-toe, with Robins getting the best of one of Boston’s best brawlers. That’s nothing new for Robins who has made a (likely modest) living as a journeyman AHL tough guy. Just take a look at his HockeyFights.com page, and you’ll see he’s been around the block a few times, although he’s probably needed a few ice packs to do so. But what some hockey fans might not know is that R...

Boston Bruins steal a point in New York

Tuukka Rask’s play was not enough for the Bruins to win two points in New York The other day I wrote about how in the past the Boston Bruins came out slow and tired during matinee games, likely due to a night previous of crazy partying or whatever the kids do these days. That didn’t happen on Monday afternoon even though it was an early-season matinee and the opponent wasn...

Claude Julien Knows Importance of Balancing Goalies, But Favorable Early Schedule Should Help

BOSTON –  Claude Julien knows a shortened season will provide some unusual circumstances that may lead to some unusual coaching decisions. But in terms of divvying up goaltending responsibilities, the Bruins head coach isn’t thinking too far ahead. Tuukka Rask got his second start in as many games on Monday for the B’s matinee tilt with the  Winnipeg Jets, but it’s clear...

Bruins fan in stands ends up with souvenir puck…in his glass of beer (video)

On Monday night, the Boston Bruins hosted the Winnipeg Jets at the TD Garden. One lucky fan in attendance was fortunate enough to walk out of the arena with a souvenir puck. Unfortunately for said lucky fan, in order to acquire such a prized memento from his evening watching NHL hockey, he had to sacrifice his glass of beer to obtain it. The cameras tracked down the lucky young...

Dougie Hamilton Helps Bruins Salvage ‘Power Point’ in Spirited Scrap Against Rangers (Video)

The Bruins earned one point on Wednesday against the Rangers — with an emphasis on earned. Boston scratched and clawed their way to an overtime loss against New York, but a point’s a point. A Nathan Horton goal late in the third period was enough to push things to OT, but Marian Gaborik‘s hat trick proved too much for the B’s to overcome. Despite Tuukka Rask‘s best efforts...

Rangers Finally Playing Like Stanley Cup Favorites They Are as Bruins Withstand Furious Assault (Video)

The Rangers are expected to contend for a Stanley Cup this season. Problem is, their first two games of the year didn’t do a whole lot to make that expectation a reality. On Wednesday, though, the Blueshirts came out firing against the Bruins and Tuukka Rask, and Boston was probably lucky to be trailing by only two goals after one period. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is impressed...

Dougie shining so far

One of the most talked about Bruin's players coming into the season was 19-year old Dougie Hamilton, pegged to be the future of this team's defensive unit. The Bruins, along with Hamilton, are off to a tremendous start. Watching the first two games, I thought Hamilton was noticeably one of the better players on the ice. He is demonstrating poise and maturity, covering his...

Islanders-Bruins Preview

The Boston Bruins are off to a strong start even with their offense not fully in gear yet. Matchups with the New York Islanders usually provide a big boost to their production.

Expected to be among the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the...

Gaborik’s Hat-Trick Lifts Rangers Over Bruins In OT

Rangers 4, Bruins 3 (OT) The Bruins headed into the Big Apple on Wednesday night for a nationally televised rematch of last Saturday’s season-opener against the Rangers, which the B’s won 3-1. Both teams had two games under their belt in this shortened season heading into Wednesday’s “Rivalry Night” – the Bruins undefeated after beating the Jets in a shootout on Monday...

Bruins’ Penalty Kill Comes Up Big Again, Plays Key Role in Win Over Jets

BOSTON –- Things didn’t look good for the Bruins in overtime Monday against the Winnipeg Jets. Having already killed one penalty at the end of regulation and into overtime, Boston was tasked with going a man down yet again, this time for the duration of the OT period. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara was tagged with a highly questionable holding call, adding frustration to an afternoon...
