Tuukka Rask is the Boston Bruins biggest question in 2013
Rejoice ye’ puck fanatics and repent the evil that was the NHL lockout! On Saturday, a little over three months since the NHL season was supposed to start, the Boston Bruins will begin their campaign for the Stanley Cup on Saturday evening in Boston where they take on the New York Rangers. While Tuesday’s “loss” to...
The Boston Bruins are hoping they can take advantage of the shortened season with a veteran team that's largely the same as last year.
The big difference is the absence of goalie Tim Thomas, who has decided to sit out a season. The team has placed the two-time Vezina Trophy winner on the suspended list.
That means Tuukka Rask is the No. 1 goalie for now. Rask had the job in...
How long was the lockout again? And the Bruins had how little of a training camp?
Those might be tough questions to answer after watching the B’s battle the Rangers on Saturday night, after a wild first period ended with Boston on top 1-0. Milan Lucic, who some hinted might not quite be at his playing weight quite yet, answered those critics by scoring the first goal of the year...
Bruins head coach Claude Julien has experienced overall success in his five seasons here in Boston.
From totaling the third most points in franchise history in '08-09, to winning the Stanley Cup in '10-11.
But those seasons were all full 82-game schedules where he had the luxury of feeling out his team by trying new things midseason like messing with the power play or...
The Bruins are back! Finally, finally, at long last, fans will be able to welcome the Black and Gold back onto the TD Garden ice on Saturday in a marquee matchup between the B’s and the Rangers.
As both teams are expected to contend for the Stanley Cup this year, fans will very quickly get a chance to measure Boston against its stiffest competition, and many questions surrounding...
For the upcoming shortened NHL season to end in another cup
for the Bruins, this must be a breakthrough year for our young talent. Here I
am primarily referring to Tyler Seguin and Tuukka Rask. These are two guys who can be superstars in
this league for years to come, and if they play to the level they are capable
of consistently, they will carry the team to playoff success for...
We could sit here, and I could very well give you your standard formulaic season preview of what's on the horizon for the Boston Bruins in 2013. That's not fun, though, and nor will it ever be fun. There's a thousand other blogs where you can find that information, so we won't even bother going down that road. Instead, we're going to talk about the issues facing...
The massive amounts of hetero man-love we hold for Shawn Thornton is known far and wide across the land, and a big reason is that his interviews are always classic. The interview he gave at the Hockey Ressurection Party last night was no exception.
We hoped to have this up earlier, but Youtube was being a pain in the ass, but all good things to those who wait.
It’s tough to think that Bruins fans may need extra or added reasons to watch the Bruins now that hockey is back. Just seeing the game back on ice across the continent will be good enough for many.
But if for some reason you need a little extra motivation or added incentive, here’s one reason (there are plenty more) to watch every single Bruins game this season, starting with...
Anyone who has pics of the event shoot us an email at email@example.com. We want to create a Facebook album with everyone's pics.
Last night was Hockey Resurrection at the Harp and over 600 fans came out toe celebrate the return of the NHL and Boston Bruin hockey. Shawn Thornton, Lyndon Byers and the legendary Rene Rancourt also came out to kick off the season in...
I wasn’t sure if I was ever actually going to be able to write this post, but here it is. The Bruins will kick off their lockout-shortened 2013 season tonight at home against a fellow Eastern Conference powerhouse squad in the New York Rangers.
Last season, many hailed the Rangers as one of the deepest and most complete teams in the league and they proved that to be true with an...
Next up is the Northeast Division #1. Boston Bruins- Without Tim Thomas, this would be a bold choice, but with how weak the division is, this is an easy pick. Two years removed from a Stanley Cup and the Bruins are looking to climb that mountain once again. Young gun, Tyler Seguin is leading the charge for the [...]
Although it may be tough to believe, hockey season is actually here. The Bruins are back. The regular season opens up Friday, when the Rangers come to town to take on the B's at the TD Garden.
When the puck drops at seven, the two teams will battle it out for the first time this season. Both teams are relying on the little bit of practice that they've had as a whole...
8 a.m. ET: This is the day hockey fans have been waiting on for way too long. The NHL is back, and it’s back in a big way.
The lockout is over, the accelerated training camp has finished and it’s time to get after it. Professional hockey returns to rinks everywhere on Saturday, and there may not be a better game on the docket than the one set to take place in Boston.
