8 a.m. ET: The Bruins opened their four-game road trip in less-than-ideal fashion with a 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night, and they didn’t have long to dwell on things.
The B’s are back in action in frigid Winnipeg on Tuesday night where they will look to complete a season sweep of the upstart Jets. Winnipeg actually enters this game ahead of the Bruins in the Eastern Conference standings as the Southeast Division leaders, although the B’s have nine more points in two fewer games this season.
Boston is coming off its busiest week of the season, at least in terms of the calendar. But it probably doesn’t feel like much of a break, as the Bruins are in the midst of a stretch in which they’ll play 15 games in 26 days. They have survived thus far, but they have evened off some as of late. The B’s are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games. To put that in perspective, the Bruins didn’t suffer their third regulation loss of the season until the 19th game of the season.
The Bruins ...

The Bruins third line has struggled at time this season. The shaky ways of the line started with Chris Bourque. In 18 games Bourque had 1 goal and 3 assists. Caron was called up and the out look was bright for the line. Caron quickly stepped in, tallied an assists, and looked like he was supposed to be there. Kelly looked like he was improving, he even scored a goal, it's suprising...
Boston Bruins getting lucky with this one. It appears Krejci doesn't have any broken bones, and is being listed as DTD.
David krejci day to day per Claude julien. No broken bones #bruinstalk

Coach said David "came in for treatment and is day to day"-said there are "no broken bones"...
Bobby Orr is arguably the best hockey player that ever lived. However, there is no argument in Boston. Number Four Bobby Orr IS the BEST player that ever lived.
Robert Gordon Orr turns 65 today so BST&N would like to pay tribute to the Boston Bruins legend. Sit back, grab a frosty adult beverage and take a trip down memory lane.
Thanks for the memories Bobby…they still give us chills!
FYI the Jets have officially signed Arturs Kulda to a one-year, one-way pro-rated 550k deal for the final 20 games of the Jets' season.
Iâm not going to review the game from yesterday- letâs put it mildly: the effort was not there. However, the loss presents a whole load of other questions, which may help explain some of Coach Claude Noelâs actions/choices...

Amica Play of the Week: Tyler Seguin:
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson said it best: “No excuses, play like a champion.”
The Bruins have plenty of excuses should they wish to use them on Tuesday, but that wouldn’t be their style. No, they’d much rather focus on the second part of the above quote, pledging to “play like a champion.” After all, that’s the whole point of playing, isn’t it?

Peter Chiarelli will be schmoozing with the other NHL general managers this week trying to get a deal done
The Boston Bruins’ Tuesday night loss to Atlanta highlighted a disturbing trend for the Bruins, one that sees them blowing leads in the third period and even failing to pick up points. When this is happening against teams like Pittsburgh and Montreal, two of the higher ranked...
The Bruins’ injury issues continued Tuesday night and right into Wednesday.
B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday that defenseman Adam McQuaid has a strained right shoulder, and the defenseman could be out 3-4 weeks.
McQuaid left Tuesday’s loss to the Winnipeg Jets in the first period after he was checked by Winnipeg winger Eric Tangradi. The hit sent McQuaid...

Folks, let's be honest here. The game was over when Wheeler tied it up last night. You knew it. I knew it. And this fact raises an ego-shattering question in the collective heart of Boston...
It has become a very scary trend. During the entire 2011-2012 season, the Boston Bruins were 32-0 when going into the third period with a lead. A flawless record. So far in this shortened 2013 season, the Bruins have lost five games in which they entered the final stanza with a lead. The most recent example coming tonight on the road at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets. Looking to...
Bruins lose three on the road for first time this season and have done it by blowing leads in the third period. Like we said, yikes.
At the moment the Bruins have no killer instinct when they get the lead. There's no putting teams out of their misery. At the moment the Bruins are getting leads and sitting on them like a mother hen waiting...
They are the Big Bad Bruins. It's as simple as that. The Bruins need to get back to that. The B's have had a strong start to the season, but some third period losses that have come of late have been a result of a lack of physicality, and with it, a loss of...
