Columbus Blue Jackets
The Bruins didn’t bring their fire and brimstone game early in a sleepy Saturday matinee in Ohio but they ended things strong with some closing finish in a 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena.
Loui Eriksson enjoyed his best game with the Bruins and lifted a wobbling backhander past Sergei Bobrovsky on the short side in the third period to register his first goal as a member of the B’s. More importantly the Eriksson marker was also the game-winner for the Black and Gold in pushing them to 3-1 on the young season.
Eriksson led the Bruins with six shots on net over the course of the game and really seemed to finally hone in on that chemistry with Patrice Bergeron that eluded him in the first few games.
The Blue Jackets opened up the scoring in the first period when Tuukka Rask never picked up a Jack Johnson power play blast from the right point with Artem Anisimov camped in front of the net. The Bruins tied the game at the end of the second period on a Chris Kelly blast...
BEST OF MAXIM
Loui Eriksson scored from a hard angle in the opening minute of the third period for his first goal with Boston, and the Bruins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Saturday.
Playing their first road game, the Bruins also got a goal from Chris Kelly, and an empty-net tally from Milan Lucic. Tuukka Rask made 26 saves.
Rask blocked Marian Gaborik's tying attempt in the closing...
Last night the Boston Bruins had more shots on goal, hits, takeaways and more offensive zone time than their opponent, the Colorado Avalanche. Unfortunately, they also had more penalty minutes and one more goal allowed in a 1-0 loss against the undefeated Avs. Although new coach Patrick Roy has brought a new level of intensity to the Avalanche team, the loss had more to do with...
It’s unrealistic to think that Jarome Iginla and Loui Eriksson have totally found a comfort level in Boston already. If Saturday is any indication, however, those new B’s are on their way to fitting in quite nicely with the rest of the defending Eastern Conference champions.
Both players were held off the scoresheet through the first three games, but both made sizable impacts...
BOSTON — It hasn’t been a pleasant start to the season for Brad Marchand.
The Bruins’ agitating winger hasn’t quite found his game yet with just one goal through four games. Marchand was especially shaky Saturday in Columbus where some potentially costly turnovers showed the forward might be pressing a little bit.
Boston coach Claude Julien tried to fix the problem by moving...
In honor of the Bruins’ 90th anniversary season, the team is taking the opportunity to pay homage to the rich history of Boston hockey.
On Monday, the B’s recognized the teams from the 1940s and ’50s by paying tribute to former Bruins captain, coach and general manager Milt Schmidt, a Hockey Hall of Famer whose No. 15 has hung from the rafters in Boston since 1980.
Goaltender Tuukka Rask hasnât been perfect in 2013, but heâs been damn close.
Through four games, Raskâs stopped all but four of the 115 shots that have been thrown his way.
Over this stretch, heâs failed to surrender more than one goal in a contest, and boasts a downright filthy .979 even-strength save percentage, good for seventh in the entire league...
Monday’s game between the Bruins and Red Wings began at 1 p.m. — the second time in three days the B’s have gotten started while the sun is still up.
After playing — and winning — a matinee in Columbus on Saturday, Claude Julien‘s club took Sunday off before returning to TD Garden for a game against new division rival Detroit.
NESN’s Jamie Erdahl caught up with several...
The first two weeks (or almost two weeks) of the new NHL season saw the Bruins play three games at TD Garden and get out to a 2-0-0 start against the Lightning and Red Wings before dropping game No. 3 to Patrick Roy’s Avalanche team that certainly appears to be for real. Now’s your chance to take a look at all the subtle stats you probably missed while watching the games on TV...
The Bruins are far from a finished product right now — at least not the product they expect to be.
Jarome Iginla has not yet found the back of the net. Brad Marchand is forcing things and was dropped to the third line in Saturday’s game. And in that 3-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets the Bruins defensemen were at times brutal when breaking the puck out of their zone.
The Bruins suffered its first loss in the early season on Thursday, but Saturday the team was able to bounce back against an opponent it has dominated over they last few meetings.
The B’s are 4-0 against the Columbus Blue Jackets since the 2012-2011 season, averaging nearly three goals per game. On Saturday, the team scored exactly three, and goaltender Tuukka Rask said that the...
Neither Boston's Loui Eriksson nor Detroit's Todd Bertuzzi were much of a factor in the first meeting between the teams, but both seem poised to play bigger roles as the Bruins host the Red Wings again Monday night.
Eriksson and Bertuzzi each went without a point as goals from Jordan Caron, Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Brad Marchand helped Boston earn a 4-1 victory Oct. 5...
The Colorado Avalanche came to town on Thursday night and that occasion always makes Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk thankful.
It didn’t have a happy ending for the Black and Gold as they dropped a 2-0 game to the Avs on the strength of a 39-save performance from the ageless Jean-Sebastien Giguere but the Colorado/Boston story has crafted a happy ending for Boychuk. The 29-year...
With all of Sunday's epic drama in the Boston sports world between the Pats and the Sox, wouldn't be a great time to relive the 'Original Epic Comeback of 2013'?Why, yes it would!!Brady leading a 70-yard TD drive in 1:30 with no timeouts is nice. Big Papi launching a first pitch grand-slam to tie the ball game after the Sox had been handcuffed for 17 straight innings...
Pez Says: In honor of Columbus Day, I've taken the popular poem "In 1492" - a kid friendly story about Christopher Columbus - and made it awesome.
On an October day, ten and two
The Bruins beat the Jackets blue.
And now they travel back to home;
Where the horses and Yeti and the Lucic doth roam.
Claude said Tuukka “This is your day;
Bruins lose a matinee home game. Let us show you our surprised face.
Boston had plenty of chances. From the stands, it felt like the Boston had the better opportunities, but somehow they couldn't figure out how to bury pucks by Gustavsson. On the other side of the rink, Rask was good but a few mental errors by the defense and an extremely rare **** up by Patrice...
