Dennis Seidenberg Celebrates Son's Birth With Goal in Comeback Victory Over Senators (Video)

Dennis Seidenberg had a day to remember on Jan. 31, when he celebrated the birth of his son with the winning goal in the Bruins' come-from-behind victory over Ottawa. Seidenberg's slap shot at the 7:09 mark of the third period gave the Bruins a much-needed victory in a week in which they faltered, and it also gave Seidenberg an unforgettable memory as the Ketel One Honorable...

Bruins Will Have to Face Alex Ovechkin on This Visit to Washington As Boston Tries to Snap Out of Slump

The Bruins have lost back-to-back games for the first time in nearly two months. On Sunday, they'll try to prevent suffering three straight defeats for the first time since October. They'll have to get through a Capitals team with star Alex Ovechkin back in the lineup to do that. Ovechkin returned Saturday but did not factor in any of Washington's goals in a 3-0 win at...

Tyler Seguin Bright Spot in Bruins' 'Saturday Slide' Loss to Penguins

The Bruins seem to be having some trouble on Saturdays this year. Boston is winless in 2012 during Saturday games and have lost three of their last four overall. Tyler Seguin played great against the Penguins, but was ultimately stymied by Marc-Andre Fleury and Pittsburgh escaped with a 2-1 victory. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is still giving Seguin our "Saturday Slide"...

Laich leaves a void in Capitals' lineup

Brooks Laich thinks he's going to play hockey until he's 60. Given his durability and stubbornness, it's not impossible to envision the Washington Capitals forward going strong until age 40. For the past four-plus seasons, the Capitals have played just four games without Laich. Tuesday, they'll have to do just ...

Dennis Seidenberg's Tie-Breaking Goal Against Senators Takes Captain Morgan Goal of the Week Honors

Tyler Seguin turned 20 years old the same night the Bruins topped the Senators in a hard-fought battle between two Northeast division rivals. The win was surely a great birthday present for the young forward. The difference in the 4-3 Boston win was a long-range, sniper shot from the stick of Dennis Seidenberg. After passing back and forth with Joe Corvo, Seidenberg reared back and...

Thomas, Bruins shut down Capitals

Tim Thomas' return to the nation's capital was less political and more successful. Playing about 10 blocks from the White House - a place he famously avoided two weeks ago - Thomas carried a shutout deep into the third period Sunday as the Boston Bruins snapped a two-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Thomas' no-show, accompanied by a Facebook...

Who will win the Southeast?

For the last few years, the Southeast Division has been one dominated by the Washington Capitals with the rest of the teams fighting for wild card spots but things are very different this year. The Capitals haven't been their usual selves and the division appears to be up for grabs with the top three teams being separated by only five points and even the Hurricanes are only 10...

Bruins' Thomas quiets Caps in DC return (AP)

Tim Thomas' return to the nation's capital was less political and more successful, with the goaltender making 35 saves Sunday in the Boston Bruins' 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals.
