Brad Marchand has a holiday wish list, and he might surprise you with some wishes he has for the Bruins. Marchand has been writing a diary for all season long, and the latest edition included Marchand's holiday gift ideas for many of his friends and teammates. "Holiday shopping is tough," he writes. "I never know what to get anyone." However, his lack of knowledge about what to get doesn't stop him from thinking up what to get his Bruins teammates for the holidays. Marchand goes on to suggest presents for just about everyone on the B's roster, from Adam...

Gregory Campbell Returns to Lineup, Plays Through Pain of Broken Foot to Give Bruins Boost in Win

BOSTON -- The Bruins won each of the three games that Gregory Campbell missed last week after he suffered a fractured foot in Columbus, but that doesn't mean they didn't miss the veteran forward's character and leadership. Both of those qualities were on display Monday night at the Garden when Campbell returned to the lineup and helped the Bruins post a 3-2 win over Montreal...

Looks like a promotion for Paille

Judging by the pregame warmups, Daniel Paille will take the suspended Milan Lucic's place on the first line with David Krejci and Nathan Horton in the Bruins-Canadiens' game tonight. It also appears that Gregory Campbell, who has missed three games with a fracture in his foot, ...

Bruins Continue to Show Depth and Character Necessary to Win With Key Players Out of Lineup

BOSTON -- There have been broken and missing parts in each of the last four games, but the machine keeps chugging along.

With Lucic banished to the press box for a check from behind...

Patrice Bergeron's Line Shows Its Value Once Again, Helping to Lift Bruins With Late Insurance Goal

BOSTON – When the Bruins have needed a big goal this season, more often than not, they've turned to the line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin. On Monday night against the rival Canadiens, the B's found themselves in need of one of those goals.

Patrice Bergeron Continues to Play at 'Elite' Level Helping to Lead Bruins Through Dominant Stretch

The Bruins are playing at an extremely high level right now, as evidenced by them winning 18 of their last 21 games. Playing at such a high level has become standard practice for forward Patrice Bergeron, whose two-way style of play continues to help provide a backbone for the Bruins and their success. Jack Edwards, who has at times used broadcasts to advocate for Bergeron to win...

Milan Lucic's Past History Costs Bruins Winger One Game Ban for Borderline Offense

BOSTON -- Officially, Milan Lucic was suspended one game on Monday for his hit from behind on Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo Saturday in Philadelphia. Unofficially, the punishment was more for Lucic's overall body of questionable work than for that particular hit alone. It was the type of borderline hit that would usually warrant just the punishment dispensed in the ice, when Lucic...

Habs spared the wrath of Lucic, Lucic suspended for one game

After watching the NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan and his ruling today I ahve come to the conclusion that there is no consistency in his ruling. Milan Lucic was suspended today for boarding Flyer goon Zac Rinaldo. Rinaldo didn't even think the hit deserved a penalty on the play. Lucic drew a five-minute major and game misconduct, yet Rinaldo doesn’t...

Mark Recchi, still a troll

Good find by the dicks over at Days of Y'Orr. The Penguins had some alum scrimmage. And Recchi trolled them:   No word yet if Recchi complained, then caused team dissension,  and ask to be traded during the scrimmage.
