For Dennis Seidenberg, finding a long term deal wasn’t easy for most of his career. After debuting with the Flyers in the 2002-2003 season, Seidenberg never played more than three years with an NHL team. Two midseason trades saw the German defender eventually land as a free agent looking for a contract when training camp opened for the 2009-2010 season. The Florida Panthers eventually signed him to a one year contract, but chose to send him to Boston in a trade that also netted the Bruins Matt Bartkowski (a trade the Panthers were fleeced on).
But it was here in Boston that Seidenberg found stability. After his 2010 season was cut short by a lacerated forearm tendon, the Bruins decided that he had performed well enough to earn himself a new four year contract, one that was set to expire after this season. However, Seidenberg has been a rock on the Bruins’ defensive corps throughout his tenure in Boston, and is continually a dominat...

Jarome Iginla didn’t make many friends in Boston when he opted to join the Penguins over the Bruins during the 2013 season, but now sporting the spoked-B, the veteran couldn’t be happier with where he is at. Winning is above all else for Iginla, and that was what led him to originally choose to go to Pittsburgh. They were the hotter team at the time he made his decision, but...
In the summer of 2009, defensemen Dennis Seidenbergâs first dip into the unpredictable waters of unrestricted free agency didnât necessarily go his way. Not at all, in fact.
A standout on the Carolina Hurricanesâ improbable run to the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals -- stunning Boston in seven games in round two -- the German-born blue-liner hit the open market...
It was a fairly clean hit set up by an extremely poor pass by Milan Lucic that left Jarome Iginla out to dry in open-ice.
Instead of taking the hit, Iginla turned to the man who hit him, said a couple of words, and dropped the gloves. Suddenly, one of the most hated players in the Bruins’ fan-base on account of his “choice” at last years trade deadline endeared himself to Bruins...

Two wins and zero losses can be viewed horizontally beside the Boston Bruins’ title in the Atlantic Division and overall conference.
Kicking off the 2013-14 season, the Bruins defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 at home on Oct. 3. Speedy and swift forward, Chris Kelley started the scoring on the night, erecting...
The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a contract extension on Thursday, rewarding the defensemen that twice helped them reach the Stanley Cup finals with $16 million over the next four years.
The team announced the deal between periods of its opening night game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
''He's been one of our core guys since we got him,'...

The Boston Bruins got the result they wanted last night with a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning, a very good offensive team, were not able to cash in on too many of their scoring opportunities as Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask saved 32 of the 33 shots he faced. ...
The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension.
The team announced the deal on Thursday between periods of its opening night game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The deal would keep Seidenberg in Boston through the 2017-18 season. The team says it has an annual cap figure of $4 million.
Seidenberg is entering his 12th NHL season,...
The Boston Bruins have reportedly signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension.
TSN’s Darren Dreger reported on Thursday that the deal is worth a total of $16 million and also has a no-trade clause. ESPN Boston’s Joe McDonald confirmed the report.
The extension won’t go into effect until the 2014-15 season because the 32-year-old veteran is in the final...
BOSTON – Jordan Caron played the Bruins’ season opener like he wanted to keep his spot in the Boston lineup. He’ll look to further his case Saturday night when he’s back on the B’s third line.
Winger Carl Soderberg‘s ankle isn’t quite ready for him to return to game action, so Caron will get another chance to showcase his skills on the third line when Boston takes on...
Hockey is a game of inches full of heartbreak and heroes.
Chris Kelly has been on both sides of the equation.
Last season was tough on the Bruins center. After scoring a career-high 20 goals in 2011-12 Kelly finished with three in the strike-shortened 2012-13 season. He added two goals in the Stanley Cup finals but it’s the one he missed against the Blackhawks in Game 4 that remains...

Life is pretty good for the Bruins right now.
Through two games on the new season three of the four forward lines have scored. The power play dormant for years is showing signs it might be a real weapon. A first-round draft pick given up as a bust in many observers’ minds appears to be coming around. The third line an Achilles’ heel the last two years is playing as well as any...
Forward Carl Soderberg was the only Bruins player missing from Friday's practice at the TD Garden a day after defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 in their season-opener.
Soderberg is recovering from an ankle injury and was replaced by Jordan Caron in the lineup on Thursday night.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm hockey is back. The Bruins are back (pre-season doesn't count, those games are meaningless and barely anyone actually tries).
Seems like the Bruins lines are still a little out of synch for the most part, but it's only the first game of a long season. The penalty kill was still amazing. Two shorthanded goals for the B's.
No point really focusing...
Boston Bruins vs Detroit Red Wings
Red Wings 1
The Detroit Red Wings drop the game in horrendous fashion to the Boston Bruins 4-1, and fall to 2-1 on the season now.
Unfortunately, this was just about as much of, if not more than, a lackluster performance by the Red Wings as much of last night was. They came out...
