The Bruins enjoyed a well-deserved day off Sunday, but they were back to work on Monday at Ristuccia, where they hit the practice ice in Wilmington. They did so without a couple of big names. Most notable was the absence of Brad Marchand. The agitating forward missed practice just a couple of days after leaving Boston’s game with the Maple Leafs. He took a nasty-looking spill into the boards Saturday night that left him hurting. Marchand went to the B’s room before actually returning to the ice. However, he spent the end of the second period on the bench, and he never returned for the third period. Gregory Campbell, who skated in Marchand’s spot alongside Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin on Saturday night, was on that line at practice Monday. Bruins head coach Claude Julien doesn’t seem too worried, though, as he told reporters that Marchand was “progressing very well,” according to the team’s Twitter feed. There was some good news on the injury front for the Bruins, too. Daniel Pa...

The Greatest Bruins Dennis Seidenberg Jersey Ever

There's been many jerseys in the Bruins history that have come and gone and tugged at our heart strings. Many believe that the 1926 Bruins jersey is one of the greatest of all times, and I tend to agree. There's something simplistic about the design that reminds you of a time when players didn't use helmets and people wore suits to games. It was a simpler time in hockey...

Shawn Thornton Skates Before Bruins Practice, Claude Julien Says Forward Is Symptom-Free

Shawn Thornton may be getting closer to returning from his concussion. The Bruins forward skated at B’s practice Monday, a sign that he is progressing well and getting closer to returning. Thornton has been out since Jan. 31 when he suffered a concussion following a first-period fight with Buffalo enforcer John Scott. Thornton’s return to the ice is an encouraging one, as is...

Tuukka's struggles versus the Canadiens

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is off to the best start of his young career, sporting a 5-1-1 record, 2.10 goals-against and a .919 save percentage through six games played. Despite those impressive numbers, Rask has had an up-and-down season against the Northeast Division. He's had solid wins against the Rangers and Maple leafs, a gut-check overtime loss versus those same blue shirts...

Shawn Thornton symptom free, doubtful for Habs game

  Shawn Thornton was on the ice this morning for the first time since fighting John Scott.

Bruins Promote Ryan Spooner From Providence on Emergency Basis

Spooner, who has tallied nine goals and 21 assists in 35 games with the P-Bruins this season, will join...

Providence Bruins Take ‘You Can Play’ Pledge in Effort to Help End Homophobia in Sports (Video)

The Providence Bruins have taken the pledge. The P-Bruins became the latest professional sports team to join in the effort to end homophobia in sports, an effort that is being led by the You Can Play Project.

Mike Augello: Bruins Win Tactical Battle Over Leafs; Super Bowl Prediction

Unlike the domination the Boston Bruins had over the Toronto Maple Leafs in their six game sweep last season, the match between Northeast Division foes Saturday was a tactical game of on-ice chess, with the more experienced and playoff hardened Bruins winning 1-0, thanks to a first period goal by Christopher Bourque. Toronto was able to remain within one goal thanks mostly to...

A Look Back At The Bruins/Canadiens Fights In 2011-2012

Tomorrow marks the first meeting between the Boston Bruins and MOntreal Canadiens.

Big Bad Bruins?

Line brawl against the Dallas Stars in 2011. Where was this tenacity against the Sabres last Thursday? In order to play at their highest level and be successful, the Big Bad Bruins must be just that, a big, tough, physical team that their opponents fear.  As fans, we have been accustomed to seeing this in recent years as the Bruins are loaded with tough physical players who aren’t...

Bruins Get Defensive in Win Over Maple Leafs, Earn Well-Deserved Rest After Busy Week

Claude Julien was extremely critical of his club following Thursday night’s game, and why wouldn’t he be? The Bruins embarrassed themselves with an uncharacteristically “brain-dead” defensive performance that left them with their first regulation loss of the season. Julien sent that message through the media, and he obviously sent it loud and clear inside his team’s dressing...
