BOSTON -- The Bruins will face their archrivals from Montreal for the first time this season Thursday night at the Garden, and they'll do it with a new look to their forward lines and possibly an old face returning on defense. The Bruins stuck with the revamped lines debuted in Wednesday's practice for Thursday's morning skate, which means Rich Peverley should be back with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand against Montreal. Nathan Horton has been reunited with David Krejci, but with Benoit Pouliot on the opposite wing instead of Milan Lucic. Lucic remains with Chris Kelly and Tyler Seguin after...

Bruins' Struggles Continue to Be Rooted in Inconsistent Efforts, Failure to Convert Scoring Chances

Claude Julien and the Bruins are doing all of they can to dig themselves out of the early hole they've put themselves in, but they're running out of options. Julien continues to shuffle his lines in an attempt to jumpstart what's been a woeful offense thus far. The fact that the Bruins continue to turn in inconsistent efforts isn't helping matters either.

Bruins Must Prove Commitment With Their Play, As Time for Talk Is Officially Over

BOSTON -- The Bruins are still talking a good game. They just haven't been able to play one, or at least not a full one. The consistent 60-minute efforts that fueled their memorable run to the Cup this spring seem long forgotten. The Bruins are back to their frustrating habits of simply disappearing for long stretches, showing just brief flashes of their championship form. That...

Bruins Could Use Arrival of Archrival Canadiens to Help Snap Out of Early-Season Funk

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The next chapter in the rivalry is almost here. The Bruins will face the Canadiens for the first time this season on Thursday when the Habs visit the Garden to open a home-and-home series.

Bruins Can't Capitalize on Lucky Bounce As Inconsistent Effort Drops Reigning Champs Into Last Place in East

BOSTON -- The Bruins appeared to finally get the break they needed. They scored a rare power-play goal and grabbed the early lead that's been so elusive this season. And they did it in the flukiest of fashions imaginable.

Bruins Could Benefit From Intense Showdowns With Canadiens, But Must Still Play Their Own Game

The Bruins have stumbled out of the gate this season in what is being described as a Stanley Cup hangover. Their home-and-home series with the Montreal Canadiens could not have come at a better time.
