Found November 21, 2013 on
On Nov. 21, 1998, the Bruins outlasted the Capitals 5-4, but the win over their conference rivals was completely overshadowed by the 12 ejections and 270 minutes in penalties that were doled out on the night. With the B’s taking an early 2-0 lead, a fight broke out halfway through the first period as Boston’s Don Sweeney and Washington’s Craig Berube dropped the gloves. Members of both teams quickly joined in, leading to absolute chaos on the ice. Soon enough, every single Bruin had found a Capitals dancing partner and it didn’t take long for the goaltenders, Byron Dafoe and Olaf Kolzig, to join in on the line brawl. Every player on the ice was ejected, but the B’s were able to pull out the win in overtime. Check out the massive fight in the video above that one young fan was lucky enough to witness in his first game.Filed under: Boston Bruins, Boston Bruins Video, NESN Vault, NESN Video, Throwback Thursday, Top Stories, Video

Patrice Bergeron Applauds Performance of Bruins’ Fourth Line in 2-1 Win Over Rangers (Video)

Tuukka Rask was the first star of the Bruins’ 2-1 win over the Rangers on Tuesday night, but the effort from the team’s fourth line was also an important factor in the outcome. Both of Boston’s goals, one from Shawn Thornton and the other by Daniel Paille, were created from the hard work by the fourth line. One of the reasons why the Bruins are among the elite teams in the...

Kevan Miller’s Debut Earns Praise From Claude Julien, Coach Says Defenseman Played ‘Extremely Well’

Bruins Blow But Rask Owns. BRUINS WIN!

Wow. What an undeserved victory. Bruins were outshot 41-22. They played lazy, uninspired hockey, yet they won. How you ask? Two words: Tuukka. Rask. Rask played his balls off yet again. Hands down team MVP so far this season. Bruins were lazy, Rask bailed them out yet again. If Rask gets injured this team will implode unless they learn how to play hockey again. And how...

Tuukka Rask Gives Bruins Everything They Need and More With Incredible Effort Against Rangers

OK, so maybe we don’t question Claude Julien‘s goaltending decisions for at least a week or two after Tuesday night. Despite the fact that the Bruins were playing their second game in as many nights, and despite the fact that Tuukka Rask had made 17 of the team’s first 20 starts, Julien went back to Rask on Tuesday in New York. The Boston starter was impressive Monday in a...

Berkshire Bank Rewind: Consistent Offensive Zone Pressure Helping Bruins Create Scoring Chances (Video)

Creating consistent offensive zone pressure is an effective way to score goals against a goaltender of Henrik Lundqvist‘s caliber, and the Bruins have done a good job of this through the first two periods of Tuesday’s game versus the Rangers. Bruins forwards have also won several puck battles below the goal line to maintain possession and tire the Rangers defensemen. Boston...

Tuukka Tantrams. BRUINS LOSE.

Well that was an awesome game ruined by a shootout. That was probably the best overall game the Bruins played all season. Great, great game to watch. Lots of action. Lots of back and forth play. Too bad these two teams don't play more. Pretty much what you'd expect in a game between two conference power houses. Lots of hits, lots of great defensive play. That was just...

Video- “Oh No” Bad Goal Of The Night

Rask on the goal via the Boston Globe, “I gave up that (the?) worst goal of my career probably there.” The Bruins lost in the shootout 3-2 to the Blues.
