8 a.m. ET: There will be hockey at TD Garden on Saturday, it will just be a little bit later than first expected. The Bruins return home to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night, not Saturday afternoon as originally planned. The Bruins and the NHL made the decision Friday afternoon to move the game back to 7 p.m. instead of the original 1 p.m. start time with a blizzard set to slam Boston and the rest of New England. It will be a game between two teams that have been going in the opposite direction the last week or so. The Bruins have won two straight, and they still only have one loss in regulation this season. They find themselves second in points in the Eastern Confernence, just one point behind Pittsburgh, who is in the midst of a five-game winning streak. The Lightning come in leading the Southeast Division, but they’ve cooled off significantly after a hot start. They’re right in the middle of a four-game road trip that has seen them drop the first two, and their la...

Everyone and their mothers interviewing Shawn Thornton this week

  Welcome to the Shawn Thornton Mancrush Boston MSM. There's some room in the back seat where the dog pooped. Anyways, seems like everyone wants a piece of Shawn Thornton since he got concussed by John Two Left Feet Scott. Getting a concussion seems to be the best PR move Twos has ever done. DJ Bean asked Thornton about some folks saying Chara or Lucic shouldn'...

Tim Thomas Traded By The Boston Bruins And Is Now A Black Guy

  A.B. This is why I love reddit so much lately. Some dude who goes by the name Atoasterstruedel with an absolute gem of a find. If it were Chara being traded (knock on wood) with a black guy’s face it wouldn’t be nearly as funny. But with the whole “Tim Thomas is a racist and hates Obama because he is black” rumor going around just makes this pure gold. I just hope this...

Questionable calls in New Jersey-Tampa Bay game results in Guy Boucher’s hilarious actions

There were some questionable calls against the Tampa Bay Lightning last night during their game against the New Jersey Devils, and their Head Coach Guy Boucher was not happy. His reaction behind the bench is hysterical, but eventually referee Don Van Massenhoven had enough and gave the Lightning coach an unsportsmanlike conduct.  This gave the Devils an extended 5-on-3 powerplay...

Bruins’ Snow Day Against Lightning Joins New Jersey’s Fabled ’334′ Game in NHL Lore (Video)

The Bruins tried to play on Saturday despite some snowy conditions in Boston, but ultimately the NHL decided to postpone the game. While it might be difficult for the B’s to find a date to play the Lightning again, that trouble pales in comparison to the fate that befell several New Jersey Devils players back in 1987. As NESN’s Andy Brickley remembers it, New Jersey had a devil...
