Found March 22, 2012 on Days of Y'Orr:
I'm not going to complain about the start times. My lovely Euro friends have already called me to the mat on them, so I will refrain from mentioning them. I swear I will. Anyways, the Bruins are about to being the dreaded California road trip. If it was December or January, I wouldn't have a problem with this, but there's something about heading out west in March that makes me feel a little uneasy. Basically, I'm just not sure which team shows up so late at night. I guess logic would be that if they blow so hard during matinee games than they should be an unstoppable force when 10:30rolls around, right? I mean, maybe this team is constructed of sparkly vampires? Maybe they are just well rested, as Andrew Ference showed up while the team was on the plane yesterday: I don't know what's better, the fact that Ference was looking at Lucic and thought "Hey, he looks like Sloth from the Goonies" or the face that Shawn Thornton is making in the background. ...

Benoit Pouliot’s Smoking Hot (Ex?) Girlfriend [translated from French using Google Translate] Well, I know it’s been a few times that I deal with Benoit Pouliot on the blog, but what do you want, it seems to be one of the few in the NHL has shared many wonderful moments on beaches. It is true that with a shape of fire (especially his girlfriend), it would pocket to hide that. These photos...

Bruins compare Lucic to Sloth from 'The Goonies'

Rule No. 1 about traveling with the Bruins is apparently "Don't fall asleep" on the team plane because if you do, you will have your picture taken and it will end up on the Internet. Milan Lucic and Gregory Campbell found that out the hard way on Wednesday afternoon when the team traveled across the country to California where they will open a three-game road trip in...

UPDATE: VIDEO: Tim Thomas' 'Because its the Cup' commercial

The NHL has retired the "History will be Made" commercials in favor of new ones -- "Because it's the Cup." Rightfully so, Tim Thomas made the first batch of commercials that are being aired. Here it is in case you haven't seen it. Not bad. Doesn't really stir any strong emotion from us or get us overly stoked, but it's not the worst...

Shawn Thornton Goes From Overlooked Junior to Stanley Cup Champion on Long Journey to NHL

In most cities, the most popular player is usually the leading scorer or the goalie. While Tim Thomas and David Krejci certainly are revered in Boston, there is no bigger fan favorite than Shawn Thornton. The veteran winger has become a beloved figure in Boston, and the feeling has been mutual. Part of fans' affinity for Thornton comes from his hard-working nature, which is evident...

Claude Julien's Pairing of Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg Adding Confidence to Bruins Defense (Video)

Zdeno Chara is certainly a deserving captain for the Boston Bruins. But the 6-foot-9 defenseman was having his fair share of struggles, along with the rest of the B's, over the past few months. Those struggles quickly turned into success, as Chara was reunited with hi playoff linemate Dennis Seidenberg. The two immediately began meshing back into the top-level defensive pairing...

Bruins Mailbag: Big, Bad B's Statistically Better Team When Fighting

The Bruins aren't out of the woods yet, but they have done quite a bit to ease some worries in the last couple games. They still need to prove they can maintain the kind of effort they've shown this week. They've teased before with a handful of strong performances sprinkled in amid the struggles of the past two months. But Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flyers...

Mike Mottau Enjoying Return Home to Boston, Especially Since Bruins Blueliner Is Confident His Boston College Eagles Can Make Run at Another NCAA Title

Mike Mottau will freely admit he is hardly an unbiased observer, but the Bruins defenseman does believe that the top-seeded Boston College hockey squad has a very good chance of adding to the town's impressive collection of championships in the upcoming NCAA tournament. The Eagles have won 15 straight games, including a 4-1 victory over Maine Saturday night in the Hockey East...

Pick Six: Thursday March 22

A quick Pick Six tonight, although I should have something to prepare you for a Thursday in which 16 teams are in action. Brian Rolston, LW, BOS – add/start Rolston is on a roll with the Bruins, as he is currently on a three-game point streak with a +5 over that span. He performed his greatest damage on Monday, scoring four points in the 8-0 whitewash over Toronto. It is also...

Bruins Slow Start Leads to Tough Loss in San Jose (Video)

The Bruins were coming off a pair of much-needed wins against a few Eastern Conference rivals in the Philadelphia Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. The B's latest test, though, came in the form of a three-game trip out West, the first of which kicked off on Thursday night in San Jose. The B's appeared a bit tired or even jetlagged to start off the game, as the same squad...

Bruins-Sharks Preview

The Boston Bruins' latest performance would seem to indicate their recent struggles are over. A visit to the slumping San Jose Sharks could give them more confidence going forward. The Bruins will seek to maintain their lead in the Northeast Division while dealing a blow to the Sharks' playoff hopes Thursday night. Boston snapped a season-high, four-game skid with a 3-2...

Bruins-Kings Preview

Sitting in a first-place tie in the Pacific Division, the Los Angeles Kings seem to have hit their stride at just the right time. The Boston Bruins could ultimately have difficultly maintaining their Northeast Division lead given their recent efforts on the road. On the verge of their longest winning streak in more than two years, the Kings look to keep things going Saturday night...

Martin Havlat Appears to Flip Off Kings Crowd During Goal Celebration (Video)

Flipgate is back in session. Martin Havlat had an Andrew Ference moment on Tuesday night when a "fist-pump malfunction" at the Staples Center was mistaken middle finger. After the game, Halvat denied giving the Staples Center the one-finger salute, but check out the video below and you be the judge.
