TEAMS: Boston Bruins
BOSTON -- The Bruins are still talking a good game. They just haven't been able to play one, or at least not a full one. The consistent 60-minute efforts that fueled their memorable run to the Cup this spring seem long forgotten. The Bruins are back to their frustrating habits of simply disappearing for long stretches, showing just brief flashes of their championship form. That has left them sitting in last place in the Eastern Conference with a 3-6-0 record. According to TSN stat guru Kevin Gibson, that's the first time a defending champion has been in last place at...

Boston Bruins celebrate Halloween at Children's Hospital

There aren't many outside of Boston that like the New England sports teams. I'm one of them. But you have to give a handful of Bruins a hand as they spent part of their Tuesday visiting Children's Hospital of Boston bringing Halloween cheer to the sick children.

Bruins' Struggles Continue to Be Rooted in Inconsistent Efforts, Failure to Convert Scoring Chances

Claude Julien and the Bruins are doing all of they can to dig themselves out of the early hole they've put themselves in, but they're running out of options. Julien continues to shuffle his lines in an attempt to jumpstart what's been a woeful offense thus far. The fact that the Bruins continue to turn in inconsistent efforts isn't helping matters either.

B's, 7-foot pink rabbit visit Children's Hospital Boston

Tyler Seguin's Odd-Man Rush Goal Earns Captain Morgan Goal of the Week Honors

Although most of the Boston's goals from the previous week happened in a 6-2 win over Toronto, it was one of Boston's tallies against the Sharks that earned Captain Morgan Goal of the Week honors. Second-year forward Tyler Seguin fielded a pass from linemate Milan Lucic and lifted the goal past Sharks netminder Antti Niemi from the right side. Seguin received 50.2 percent...

Bruins Can't Capitalize on Lucky Bounce As Inconsistent Effort Drops Reigning Champs Into Last Place in East

BOSTON -- The Bruins appeared to finally get the break they needed. They scored a rare power-play goal and grabbed the early lead that's been so elusive this season. And they did it in the flukiest of fashions imaginable. On the opening faceoff of the power play, Montreal center Tomas Plekanec won the draw cleanly off Patrice Bergeron, but he sent back on his own goal and Habs...

Did Zdeno Chara, Milan Lucic or Tyler Seguin Score Captain Morgan's Goal of the Week?

The Bruins were able to light the lamp eight times in just two games last week, but despite the high-octane offense, the B's were able to come away with just one victory. Although it was hard to whittle it down to just three goals, check out the nominations for this week's Captain Morgan Goal of the Week below. Who had the goal of the week?
