Claude Julien’s Critical Comments Show Quick Reverse in Course As Bruins’ Struggles Continue

The Bruins look like they’re in trouble right now, and Boston head coach Claude Julien looks to be giving one last-ditch effort to fire up his struggling club. The B’s lost 5-2 Tuesday night in Philadelphia in an ugly showing in which the club was sloppy in just about every facet of the game. The Bruins should have been able to take advantage of a Flyers team that had little...

Bruins’ Tuukka Rask Should Be A Finalist For Vezina

Boston Bruins goaltender #40 Tuukka Rask’s play has likely earned him a Vezina Nomination Tuukka Rask has done something incredible this season. He has made almost every Boston Bruins fan forget about his predecessor Tim Thomas, and the remarkable run he put together over the last five seasons.

Bruins Fans Anxiously Waiting to Find Out Who Team’s First-Round Playoff Opponent Will Be (Video)

The Bruins are headed to the postseason, but who they meet there is anybody’s guess at the moment. With teams still scrambling for the final few tickets to the playoff dance, not to mention the Bruins and Canadiens (and maybe even the Maple Leafs) fighting for the Northeast division, the final postseason picture is a big jumble heading into the final few games. NESN Nation’s...

Bruins Struggles Continue in Philly

  As has become a strange trend over the course of the last week, the Bruins were treated to yet another heartwarming tribute to the victims and armed forces in light of the Boston Marathon bombings last week, and then went out and essentially laid an egg on the ice of the Wells Fargo Center.  With playoff hockey looming, the Boston Bruins have been on a slow nosedive in the wrong...

Grindin' Gears: Where We Find A Black And Gold Turd In The Punchbowl

  This Bruins team had a hot start when the season started and carried it throughout February. Suddenly the calendar turned and everyone talked about how March was going to be a meat grinder. 17 games in 31 days (before snow storms, etc) and it would prove if this team was a contender or a pretender. Now we're at the end of the regular season and this team is still fighting...

Bruins Offense Propels Team in Win, Hope to Keep Momentum Heading Into Playoffs

Bruins Lose Another Dissapointing Game

The Bruins were defeated tonight by the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 in another disappointing show of effort. Things started off well for the Bruins as new defense man Wade Redden scored a goal to make it 1-1 in the first period. It was the second period when things went down hill for the Bruins. In 7 seconds the Philadelphia Flyers scored two goals. The second of the two goals wasn...

Jaromir Jagr’s Record-Tying Game-Winning Goal Against Panthers Is Captain Morgan Legendary Moment (Video)

Jaromir Jagr‘s career has long since passed into “legendary” territory, but the veteran added one more notch to his belt this past weekend. With his goal against the Florida Panthers on Sunday, Jagr tied Phil Esposito in the record books as the all-time leader in game-winning goals — and any time that name is uttered around Boston, people take notice. Jagr’s record-tying...

Boston Slaps Around The Worst Team In The NHL. Congrats?

  Quite the turn around from Saturday's game from Sunday's game - although that's not saying much because Florida is terrible. If Boston lost to Florida, they should have just given up their playoff spot to Winnipeg and headed to the link early. Lets be honest with ourselves in regards to this game - Florida isn't Pittsburgh and Florida has trouble keeping the...

Keys To The Game Vs. Philly- So Are We Jagr's Sloppy Seconds?
