BOSTON – Brian Rolston has 11 points in his last six games and 12 points overall in 15 games since joining the Bruins. This after managing just nine points in 49 games with the Islanders this season. But it’s not the recent rise in production of the veteran forward that his linemate finds hard to believe. It’s the date on Rolston’s birth certificate that center Chris Kelly...

In late January, it was reported that he suffered a "mild concussion" following a blindside hit from Flyers' forward Tom Sestito. In early February, he began skating...
BOSTON – The Bruins return to Garden ice Tuesday night after a successful West Coast swing, but will have to face a Lightning team that rolled to a 6-1 win against the Bruins two weeks ago in Tampa. The Bruins will try to shake off the effects of a cross-country flight, while the Lightning are playing the back end of back-to-back games after a 5-3 win in Philadelphia on Monday...
The Bruins picked up some steam over the week, bagging a pair of wins during a three-game West Coast swing and a big win at home over the Lightning. The B's tallied 13 goals in four games and head into the final six games of the season with some confidence up front. Check out the Captain Morgan Goals of the Week nominees and don't forget to send in your vote in the right...
The Bruins have been, at times, this season a Jekyll and Hyde team. And more often than not, that comes down to what they're doing in the offensive zone. When the B's are going good, the goals come in bunches, as do the wins. That's why things like the return of Rich Peverley and the evolution of the Benoit Pouliot-Chris Kelly-Brian Rolston line come as much welcomed...
BOSTON – The Bruins began the night down a defenseman with Dennis Seidenberg sidelined with a leg infection. They lost another key defender before the first period ended. With six minutes left in the opening frame, Adam McQuaid went back to retrieve a puck behind the Boston net and was hit hard into the boards by Washington forward Jason Chimera. McQuaid turned just before contact...
On Dec. 28, Dennis Seidenberg beat Jason LaBarbera on a fluky goal in overtime out in Phoenix. The overtime winner helped the Bruins overcome a somewhat pedestrian effort to escape the desert with a 2-1 win, running their winning streak to seven games. That was the last time the Bruins had a winning streak of more than two games. Until Tuesday night, that is. The Bruins beat the...
The Bruins toyed with their fans’ hopes for a while this season, but it looks like the black and gold have gotten it together just in time for a playoff run. With just six games remaining, including Thursday night at home against the reeling Washington Capitals, the Bruins are finding chemistry on the ice as injured players returned and line combinations turn out strong results...
The Bruins seem to have a knack for getting better as it gets later, if you look at how they excel in the third period and struggle during day games. Coming off a West Coast road trip, the team might be having some trouble adjusting back to Eastern Standard Time. Which, to NESN Nation's Dan Duquette, would explain why it's a tie game after one period on Tuesday.
Last time the bruins took on the lightning, things did not go Boston's way. This time out, coming off two straight wins, Tim Thomas and Co. might be playing with a chip on their shoulders. Nesn Nation's Dan Duquette is expecting Tampa to find out the hard way what happens when you embarrass the b's.
The stakes were much higher 10 months ago to the day, also known as the last time Dwayne Roloson came to Boston as the Tampa Bay Lightning's starting goaltender.
Facing off against the Bruins' Tim Thomas with a Prince of Wales Trophy on the line, the duo that were a combined 78 years old (Now 79 thanks to Roloson's 42nd birthday celebrated this past October) dueled...
Ten months ago, the Boston Bruins prevented the Tampa Bay Lightning from reaching the Stanley Cup finals.
Now Boston has a chance to all but extinguish the Lightning's slim hopes of getting back to the playoffs.
The Bruins look to pad their lead in the Northeast Division by continuing their home dominance of Tampa Bay in the conclusion of this season series Tuesday night.
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins closed out their West Coast trip in style with back-to-back wins in Los Angeles and Anaheim over the over. Now they return home looking to settle a score with Tampa Bay. The Lightning handed Boston one of its worst losses of the season two weeks ago, routing the Bruins 6-1 in Tampa on March 13. The Lightning (35-33-7, 77 points) dropped three straight after...
