New York Rangers
The Boston Bruins put forth a complete, dominating effort as they thrashed the New York Rangers 5-2. While at times it seemed as though the Bruins were going to let this one slip through their finger tips, they stood tall and now lead the series 2-0. The Bruins and Rangers traded goals in the first period. Torey Krug scored his second goal in as many games to give the Bruins the lead. But the lead wouldn't last three minutes as Ryan Callahan cashed in on a Brad Marchand turnover. That process would repeat itself in the second. Gregory Campbell gave the Bruins the lead just 2:24 into the period, putting a rebound of a Krug shot past Henrik Lundqvist. This time the lead would last just 56 seconds before Rick Nash tied the game. But the Bruins wouldn't let the game enter the third period tied. Johnny Boychuk gave the Bruins the lead. It didn't take the Bruins very long to extend the lead in the third. Just 26 seconds in Brad Marchand extended the lead to two on a pla...
BEST OF MAXIM
Former Michigan State Spartan Torey Krug has played two career NHL playoff games. And he’s scored in both.
Krug followed up his surprising goal in the Boston Bruins’ Game 1 win over the New York Rangers with an absolutely dazzling marker to open the scoring in Sunday’s Game 2. With the Bruins on the break, Krug handled a pass between his legs, controlled the puck and then fired...
Make that two goals in two games for Boston Bruins rookie defenseman, Torey Krug. The Livonia, Michigan product has played in a grand total of five NHL games and has two NHL goals, both in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

With an assist on Krug's goal, Krejci put himself back in first in playoff...
BOSTON — The nerve-wracking nature of the Stanley Cup playoffs can be too much for some players. Conversely, there are also who rise to the occasion when the lights shine brightest. Through the first two postseason games of his career, Torey Krug appears to belong in the latter group.
If playing your game — and succeeding at playing game — are the true barometers for comfort...
Torey Krug scored a highlight real goal last night in the Bruins 5-2 game 2 victory over the Rangers, apparently Krug had been practicing his moves last year at Michigan State. Courtesy of Matt Kalman from the Bruinsblog as well as MSU Hockey for the video. Here's the goal from yesterday:
Unheralded Boston Bruin's defensman Torey Krug made an amazing between-the-legs play to top Rick Nash and the Rangers just 47 days before his wedding.
Behind goals by Torey Krug, Gregory Campbell, Johhny Boychuck, Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic, the Bruins rattled King Henrik and gained a 2-0 series lead on the New York Rangers to the tune of a 5-2 victory.The Rangers found the answer for each of Boston's first two goals, scoring on two breakaways by Ryan Callahan and Rick Nash, but the Bruins sacked up on defense and prevented...
The Bruins’ defense played a big role in their 5-2 win on Sunday over the New York Rangers. Torey Krug and Johnny Boychuck each netted goals, and Matt Bartkowski and Dougie Hamilton were both credited with assists.
Though they may be young, Krug, Bartkowski and Hamilton have proved themselves worthy of head coach Claude Julien‘s confidence moving forward in the series. Julien...
Dougie Hamilton, Matt Bartkowski and Torey Krug. Three names most Bruins fans probably did not expect to hear much about coming into the 2013 NHL playoffs. The three rookie defenseman, while stacked with potential as future blue liners in the Bruins' lineup, figured to play minimal roles in whatever cup run the Boston Bruins were going to make. However, by the end of a strenuous 7...
Torey Krug and Dougie Hamilton have given the Boston Bruins a big boost in the playoffs
When the Boston Bruins took to practice today before heading off to New York to continue their series, all eyes seemed pointed towards the Boston Bruins defensemen. Most notably, the status of injured starters Dennis Seidenberg, Wade Redden and Andrew Ference.
In any other post-season, the loss...
The Bruins are proving the value of their organizational depth against the Rangers, but it will be tested on Tuesday night in New York.
With young defensemen Torey Krug, Dougie Hamilton and Matt Bartkowski called on once again in a key Game 3, it will be all the more important for them to play well because of the game’s locale. They’re no longer safe at home in Boston at TD Garden...
One of the rare bright spots in game two: the captain
The Rangers lost a tough one to the Bruins in game two. Why was it tough you ask? It was tough because the Rangers were brutal in their own end. If the Bruins had capitalised on half of the odd man rushes or wide open chances they had it could have been worse. That all said the Rangers were much improved offensively. They created...
In 31 games against the Bruins, Henrik Lundqvist had not allowed more than three goals. In Game 2 at the biggest time of the year, he let in five. What a difference a playoff series makes. With veteran D men Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference and Wade Redden still out, the Baby B's defense made another strong case for why they should stay on the job when those guys get back...
The Boston Bruins have three rookie defensemen in the lineup for the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers.
It's not because they want to.
It's because they have to.
''As you know, we're getting thin here,'' Bruins coach Claude Julien said on Friday, a day after Torey Krug, in his first career NHL playoff game, scored to send the...
The Boston Bruins won game two fairly convincingly
The past few weeks over here for me have been a blur. With my final finals period at university and graduation and starting a new job, not even the crazy first round series for the Boston Bruins could help me find time to write blog posts. As a result, Boston’s Bettah has been a place where posts have been infrequent and not exactly...
