Much has been made about Brad Marchand‘s inability to put the puck in the net this postseason or at least as of late. The pesky Bruins winger hasn’t scored since Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Pittsburgh, a two-goal effort in which he scored twice in the first period of the B’s 6-1 win.
Since then, however, Marchand has gone cold. While he’s far from alone — linemate Jaromir Jagr still hasn’t scored since April 21 — the Bruins need something out of Marchand.
He played a pivotal offensive role in 2011, especially in the Stanley Cup Final. Marchand scored four goals and added two assists in the club’s seven-game series win over Vancouver.
Marchand does have four goals and nine assists this postseason, but he’s been held pointless in the Cup Final. When Marchand does score, however, the Bruins tend to be successful. For his career, the B’s are 12-1 in games he scores a goal in.
Maybe the desperation of a Game 6 with Boston’s back up against the wall will get Marchand t...

HOLDING OUT HOPE
Patrice Bergeron was reportedly released from the hospital on Friday night and flew home with the team. His status remains unknown.
Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron suffered some sort of mysterious injury that sidelined him for the second period of Game 5 and forced him to leave the United Center sitting in the back of an ambulance, and Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reported that Bergeron may have suffered a spleen injury.
Pro Hockey Talk's Joe Yerdon was monitoring early-morning Tweets, and he found...
BOSTON-- Have you licked your wounds yet? Boston Bruins Nation is still licking theirs after a heart-breaking 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, one that saw visiting Chicago score two goals in a span of 17 seconds, and it turn robbing the Bruins of their second Stanley Cup in three years. While the Stanley Cup is hockey’s ultimate prize, this season the Black and Gold accomplished...
This was the goal by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic scored at the 12:11 mark of the third period. Of course the Blackhawks weren't done done as they scored two goals 17 seconds to win the 3-2 and the Stanley Cup Series 4-2.
It appears that Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk won’t face a suspension from the NHL as a result of the devastating hit he laid on Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews during Saturday’s Game 5 in Chicago.
According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the league has reviewed Boychuk’s hit and decided that it did not warrant a disciplinary ruling. Boychuk himself stated after the game that...
Chicago Blackhawks captain Patrick Toews and Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron -- who both missed time in Game 5 because of injury -- were back in the lineup for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden on Monday.
The Blackhawks lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and could clinch their second Cup in four years with a victory.
Toews was on the bench for the third period of...
What a bummer. Bruins played their asses off, had the lead and then -- like so many times this season -- saw a third period lead slip away. This time it happened so fast at the end. Unreal. That's two third periiod meltdowns that led to Blackhawk wins. Ouch.
We're proud of what the Bruins did this post-season. They almost got bumped by the ******* Maple Leafs but...
It's win or go home for the Boston Bruins Monday night against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 6, with Stanley Cup survival on the line. And has been the case throughout this series, the hitting is hard and the competition fierce, and neither team can pull away, the game tied at 1-1 after two periods.
Now, if the Bruins do force a Game 7, Blackhawks fans who believe in Karma...
By: Rich BergeronInstead of forcing a game 7 for all the marbles, The Boston Bruins squandered a 2-1 lead against the Chicago Blackhawks Monday night and allowed two late goals in the third period. The exciting last-minute win gave the Blackhawks the chance to raise the Stanley cup in triumph for the second time in four years. The Bruins did manage to get off to an aggressive...
Tonight could be the end of the 2013 Boston Bruins. Tonight could be the last time we ever see this particular cast of players assembled, donning the 8-spoked black and gold B that has transcended generations of hockey fans. Tonight, Phil Pritchard and the Lord Stanley's Cup will be in the TD Garden and could possibly be handed out to the Chicago Blackhawks.
12:50 p.m.: Things are hot and humid in and around Boston today, so the ice surface will, once again, likely be a factor when things get underway tonight. With high’s around and above 90 degrees, Julien knows his team will have to adjust.
“Well, obviously with some fans in the building tonight, it’ll get obviously warmer. I thought the ice this morning was in pretty good...
