No matter how the summer’s blockbuster trade turns out — and we could be years away from determining the real winner — this one thing is certain: The Bruins’ 3-2 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars last night at the Garden had to smart a little bit for the brass.
After the B’s lost a late lead on a self-inflicted wound from two of their more veteran players, the teams went to a shootout. And who were the two Stars to beat goalie Tuukka Rask in the skills competition? None other than Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley, the two players Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli shipped out in a megadeal in July. Loui Eriksson, the key piece of the deal coming over from the Stars and playing in his first game back from a concussion, was among the B’s thwarted in the shootout.
Patrice Bergeron opened the scoring in the first round of the shootout, but Seguin — whom the Garden fans tried to torment with chants of “Se-guin!” much of the night — kept the Stars alive and Peverley won it in Round 4....

Tyler Seguin returns to Boston Tuesday night for the first time since the blockbuster July trade that sent the young forward to the Dallas Stars. The man the Bruins essentially swapped for Seguin will make his own sort of return Tuesday night. Bruins coach Claude Julien said Tuesday that winger Loui Eriksson “will definitely be in [the game].” The 28-year-old Swede has missed...
The Panthers were able to create a few quality scoring chances in the first period of Thursday’s game at TD Garden because of some uncharacteristic breakdowns defensively by the Bruins.
Among Boston’s mistakes were poor positioning, missed defensive assignments and players taking too long to step up and stop the puck carrier.
Watch the video above for a full analysis of the B’s...
Kathryn Tappen (who is a smoke show) of the NHL Network asked players who their celebrity crush is. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask’s answer will throw you for a loop for sure.
I guess he’s “Crazy In Love” with his choice.
Looks like Beyonce is more of a football fan than a hockey fan, but Tuukka Rask is a stone cold gangsta in his own right.
Look out Jay-Z…..

The Bruins’ style of play isn’t easy, and it isn’t for everyone. That much was on display in more ways than one on Tuesday night at TD Garden.
Tyler Seguin made his return to Boston on Tuesday night for the first time since being traded to Dallas in the offseason. As we’ve come to find since, there were some in the Boston front office who felt Seguin couldn’t play the B’s...
In case anybody was wondering, Zdeno Chara detests the idea that he’s a minus player one month into the season.
The debate can go on until the cows come home about the reasons why he's a minus player, and the overall merits of the plus/minus stat, but the Bruins captain is a minus-1 for the season after 14 games.
To put that in perspective, Chara was a plus-80 over the last...
Just when it seems like the team is going to get out of their losing ways and get a win in a game they played well in, the Bruins find a new way to take a loss in the standings.
Tuesday night, a poor line-change late in the third period resulted in Dennis Seidenberg having to take a hooking penalty leading to a penalty shot.
Less than a minute later, a 2-1 game in favor of the Boston...
The Bruins are a relentless team when they don’t have the puck in the attacking zone, and that was evident in the build up to Torey Krug‘s game-tying goal on Tuesday night against the Stars.
A good pinch by defenseman Adam McQuaid and strong puck pursuit by Reilly Smith and Carl Soderberg helped force a turnover, and when Smith got the puck back, he delivered a perfect pass...
Same ole Bruins this season. Too little too late on the effort. Too many mental miscues. A power play more impotent than a 90 year old man on life support.
The season is young. The Bruins will in all likelihood make the playoffs. But that doesn't make this **** show we've been watching any better. We love you guys. We're paying to see you. Maybe reward us a...
This Thanksgiving, the Blue shirts and the Beantown Bears go head to head in a long time rivalry game. In director Bobby Farrelly’s latest, hockey heroes Cam Neely and Mike Richter drop in to add fuel to an already heated family Thanksgiving visit. This Boston and New York family rivalry serves up a turkey day to remember.
BOSTON –The Bruins are looking to turn things around, and lucky for them, the Florida Panthers are in town.
With the way the B’s are playing right now, though, nothing’s a sure things. Boston has lost four of its last five games, and they’re struggling in all three zones. But as bad as the Bruins are playing, the Panthers have arguably been worse — and they have been that...
The Bruins welcomed back a superstar on Tuesday night, as Tyler Seguin returned to the Garden for the first time since being traded to the Stars.
Seguin was shipped to Dallas over the summer, and while the unceremonious departure led to a blockbuster seven-player trade, it was far from the first time the B’s traded away one of their cornerstones. From Joe Thornton to Phil Kessel...
When Tyler Seguin steps onto the ice at TD Garden Tuesday night in Boston, it will be not only as an opponent, but as the once future face of the Bruins.
Though he played only three seasons in Boston, the current Dallas Stars center will forever be linked to the Bruins probably one of two ways. It could either be as the underachiever the Bruins were right about or the superstar...
The Bruins got back on the winning track and beat the lowly Panthers 4-1 at the TD Garden.It was another slow start for the B's (stop me if you've heard that these past three weeks). A scoreless first period between the two teams with not much going on, save for a questionable high-hit on Chris Kelly from Jesse Winchester which saw no penalty called. Gregory Campbell fought Winchester...
Man, that Bruins have been pretty ******* bad lately. Losers of 4 out of their last 5 hockey games, Boston welcomes Florida into the TD Garden with open arms. Florida sucks sitting at 14th in the Eastern Conference with a measly 10 points which means Boston is going to play down to their level and get their doors blown off or they're going to be up 1-0 with 2 minutes left, blow...
photo via isportweb.comSome good news for the B's ahead of their Tuesday night tilt with Dallas: winger Loui Eriksson will return after missing 5 games due to a concussion sustained two weeks ago versus Buffalo.Claude Julien said Loui Eriksson is definitely in for tonight & that Johnny Boychuk is most likely in vs. Stars #BruinsTalk— Joe Haggerty (@HackswithHaggs) November...
