The first period was coming to a close. The Boston Bruins (12-6-1) were up 2-0 over an Ottawa Senators (8-7-4) team they have dominated, beating the Senators in 17 out of their last 23 meetings.  Even more impressive, the Bruins have not lost a game at the Canadian Tire Centre arena (Ottawa’s home arena) since April….of 2009. Knowing these statistics, and seeing how dominant the B’s looked the first nineteen plus minutes of the period, it looked as though the most interesting thing to watch for was whether or not Ottawa would pull their starting goalie, Craig Anderson, who had struggled lately.  The whole game changed however, when Senators winger Chris Neil scored with only 50 seconds left in the period. The goal came off of a poor decision by Boston defenseman Torey Krug.  The young defenseman, whose skating ability and scoring touch has really improved the Boston blue line offensively, got into trouble trying skate the puck out of his zone under tremendous pressure from Senators ...

Where are they now: Per-Johan Axelsson

Anders Per-Johan Axelsson, known to Boston Bruin fans as P.J. Axelsson, was a staple of the Bruin’s penalty kill from 1997 to 2009. I’m sure a lot of us, me included, forgot or didn’t realize P.J. was still with the club as recently as 2009. So what has the 38 year old fan favorite been up to for the last few years? He’s been playing, and been involved in, professional...

Hurricanes get Cam Ward back in net, but Bruins get the victory

When the Boston Bruins take a two-goal lead, they can pretty much count on skating off with a win.

Boston Bruins slowly improving

(Photo by Scott Audette/NHLI via Getty Images) I am glad and proud to say the Boston Bruins proved me wrong this week. The B’s came ready to play at the beginning of every game this week, applying tremendous pressure offensively, while holding back the opponent’s attack. However, the team only did such – proving me wrong – in eight straight regulation-time periods, forgetting...

Bruins bounce back, beat Hurricanes

The memory of what happened Friday night against the Senators was all too fresh for the Bruins. In that game, of course, the B’s played very well en route to a 2-0 lead in the first period — then wilted in a 4-2 loss. This time, when the B’s grabbed a quick 2-0 lead tonight against the Hurricanes, they didn’t squander it — continuing to press and beating the ‘Canes,...

2 p.m.: The Bruins were looking to sustain momentum following a very successful five-game homestand when they opened a three-game road trip Friday in Ottawa. That momentum was quickly squashed. The B’s jumped out to a 2-0 lead against the Senators, but that eventually evaporated as part of four unanswered goals from Ottawa. The Bruins, playing on the second half of a back-to-back...
