Days of Y'Orr:
Tampa Bay Lightning
I ******* hate these three day waiting periods between games. It's probably the closest thing to being water boarded that I will ever experience outside of a Bruins power play (although not lately!). The worst part about it is that there isn't **** to write about during this time off, except for that Lindy Ruff got fired 5 years to late which is kind of a ****** thing because now someone may actually realize the team is talented and coach them as such. Anywho, the Bruins are now in toasty Florida, where the mice are huge and the 4pm steak is $5 with tax to play the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Last time the Bruins "played" Tampa Bay, a snow storm opened it's anal cavity and dumped about 2 feet of snow on us causing the game to be postponed. Before that game, Tampa was on a virtual tear of NHL goaltending. They put up something like 6+ goals 6 times before their matchup with Boston, but has since cooled off - big time.
Since the February 10th postponed gam...

The Boston Bruins are currently the focus on the New England hockey community, and while the attention they have is deserved; it is really easy to forget about the many prospects the B’s have developing their games in leagues all over the world.

The Lightning fell behind early and were unable to get ahead which resulted in a 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins. Nathan Horton scored two goals for Boston Thursday night, first one coming just :45 seconds into the game. Down 2-1 in the second period, Lightning rookie Cory Conacher found the net with his shot to tie the game up at 2-2. But the tie would be short lived as Boston took...
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.
Seven skaters (and one assistant coach) sat out Tuesday’s workout with flu-like symptoms. Luckily for the team, this moment of poor help falls during a three-day off period, as Boston will not play its next game until Thursday...
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...
The Bruins love Nathan Horton, as he’s by all accounts, one of the best teammates any NHL player could ask for. When he plays like he did on Thursday night, however, he must be their favorite guy in the world.
The big forward with the even bigger smile played his best game of the season, scoring two goals and leading the Bruins to a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning to open...
Capping a brutal stretch thatâs seen the Boston Bruins skate in just six games in the past 20 days, the Bruinsâ third leg of a five-game road trip thatâs 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.
Turning to Tuukka Rask for the second straight game, and...
After seven Bruins missed practice on Tuesday with flu-like symptoms, the team was back at it on Wednesday.
Practicing down in Tampa in advance of the team’s Thursday game against the Lightning, the B’s know they have a tough test in front of them after dropping both games on their Florida swing last year. Although the Panthers are struggling right now, the Lightning are boasting...
The Boston Bruins have their fair share of connections to the Ottawa Senators.
The Black-and-Gold were the ones that lured general manager Peter Chiarelli away from the Sens in the summer of 2006, but not before (wink, wink) stealing the 6-foot-9 Zdeno Chara out of Ottawa with a five-year contract that came with a monster payout for the Senator-turned-Bruin. As weâd learn...
While the Bruins season is off to about as good of a start as we could have hoped, it is worth taking a quick look ahead to this off-season when a number of key members of the current squad are set to become free agents.
The big names on this list are Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton, Anthon Khudobin, Lane MacDermid, and Tuuka Rask. All are important pieces of the current team, and...
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. Stamkos’ early-season success this year has put him right back into the running...
The last time the Bruins tried to play the Lightning, Mother Nature had other ideas. There will be no such problems this time around.
With the B’s in Tampa to take on the Bolts, the Boston penalty-kill unit should get a real test from the top power play in the league, led by Steven Stamkos and the potent Lightning offense.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is excited to (finally) see...
The Tampa Bay Lightning took advantage of a tired Toronto Maple Leafs team and claimed a 4-2 victory at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Contributions from all areas of the roster propelled the Lightning in a game that can only be described as an improvement compared to recent contests. Steven Stamkos and Vincent Lecavalier scored, Benoit Pouliot compiled three assists, and Anders Lindback...
What a beautiful arena, too bad Tampa doesn't have fans
"Let's Go Bruins!" chants and huge cheers erupting when B's score here in Tampa tonight. Feels like a home game for the Black and Gold
