Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson made a surprising return to the ice Saturday morning, skating with his teammates in an early practice session prior to tonight's game against the New York Islanders. Bruins coach Claude Julien mentioned during Friday's media session that Eriksson had passed the required concussion tests and would be allowed to practice with the team.  However, Julien did not comment on a timetable for Eriksson's return, and made no mention of him traveling with the squad to their trip to Long Island, just stating that the forward was still "day-to-day". Bruins fans, most of whom spent Saturday morning celebrating another championship duck boat parade thanks to the Boston Red Sox, were pleasantly surprised seeing these tweets: Spotted at Nassau Coliseum #nhlbruins #louieriksson http://t.co/Eb5xk7zkaW— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) November 2, 2013 Welcome sight.

Injury report: Johnny Boychuk and Loui Eriksson

Johnny Boychuk via csnne.comThursday night’s win over Anaheim came with a big loss. Being considered day-to-day, Johnny Boychuk left in the second period of that game with an undisclosed injury. Boychuk crashed hard into the boards and after getting off the ice wasn’t able to return to action. This led to big time minutes being played by the younger group of the Bruin’s...

Boston Bruins resemble Gilligan; look lost on Long Island

The opening period in a 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders (6-5-3) started out like the majority of games this season have for the Boston Bruins (8-5-0).

Chris Kelly Says Effort ‘Makes Everything Else Go’, Wasn’t There Against Islanders As They ‘Outplayed Us’ (Video)

The Bruins disappointing play yielded disappointing results on Saturday night as Boston lost to the Islanders 3-1.

Bruins’ Breakout Play Leads to David Krejci’s Smooth Skate-to-Stick Move in Front of Net (Video)

The puck was then left for a streaking David...

Berkshire Bank Rewind: Carl Soderberg Nets First Career NHL Goal Against Ducks (Video)

Carl Soderberg‘s first period against the Ducks on Thursday night didn’t instill a lot of confidence in the forward’s play, but he made up for his unimpressive start in the second period. With Ryan Spooner being called up on Thursday, Soderberg was given the nod over Jordan Caron on the third line. After a forgettable twenty minutes in which his pass led to an Anaheim goal...

Boston Bruins playing to the level of their competition

(Photo: Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) For the second week in a row the Boston Bruins fell victim to a simple sports psychology 101 ‘no-no.’ A coach of mine once said, “If you set the bar too low, you’ll fall flat on your face.” This comes to mind after the Bruins battled against the Pittsburgh Penguins, falling short 3-2, and against the Anaheim Ducks, triumphantly defeating...

The NHL has given Buffalo's John Scott a seven-game suspension for his hit to the head of Boston's Loui Eriksson back on October 23rd.

Ugly start, but good end result for Bruins

The Bruins brass were sufficiently concerned about the club’s recent lack of offense that they recalled center Ryan Spooner from AHL Providence in the hope the 21-year-old might provide a spark last night against Anaheim. “I think we need a little bit more speed right now and we need a little bit more offense in our game,” said coach Claude Julien an hour or so before the...

Scott suspended seven games for hit on the Bruins Loui Erikson

In my opinion, this suspension, isn't long enough. I would like to see this be a 10-game suspension. Just for the record, Loui Eriksson hasn't played since October 23rd, because he's suffering from a concussion. Also, during his NHL Career, John Scott has scored a grand total of (1g-4a—5pts) in 187 NHL games. Not known for his offensive prowess, the Sabres' pylon...
