Found March 14, 2013 on NESN.com:
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins were just a few minutes from finishing off what would have been a very impressive two-game road trip to start their busiest week of the season. That apparently wasn’t in the cards, however, as Boston coughed up a two-goal lead late Monday in Pittsburgh as the Penguins stormed back to win 3-2. The B’s return home Thursday night to continue their stretch of five games in seven days by welcoming the Florida Panthers to town. On paper, it seems like the perfect chance for the Bruins to get back on the winning track. The Panthers come in with the NHL’s worst record, and they don’t really show signs of improving. Florida comes in having lost two in a row, and they are 2-6-2 in their last 10 games. They have been ravaged by injuries, and the B’s would absolutely love to add to the Panthers’ misery. Boston won the first matchup of the season between these two when they rolled over the Panthers 4-1 on Feb. 24. The Bruins jumped out to a 3-1 lead through two periods, and...

Shawn Matthias scores sick shorthanded goal

Those who work hard often get rewarded, and that is exactly what happened during the Boston Bruins-Florida Panthers game on Thursday night.  Early in the second period the Panthers were killing off a penalty and Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton missed a bad pass and the puck squirted out to center ice.  Panthers forward Shawn Matthias out-hustled Hamilton and dove for the loose...

Claude Julien Passes Milt Schmidt on Bruins’ Wins List, But Doesn’t See Himself in Same Class as B’s Legend

BOSTON — The Bruins won an ugly game on Thursday night, and in the process, Claude Julien passed another B’s legend. In a tenure that hasn’t always been aesthetically pleasing or without its bumps in the roads, Julien continued his ascent up the Bruins’ all-time wins list. With Boston’s 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, Julien passed Milt Schmidt in career...

Zdeno Chara Earning Midseason Accolades From Fans for His Fighting Prowess, Goal Scoring Alike (Video)

Halfway through the season, the Bruins have plenty of reasons to feel like awarding some attaboys. After all, they’re right in the hunt for the Northeast Division crown, have been able to avoid injuries to many of their key guys and have erased any worries about missing Tim Thomas thanks to the strong play of Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin. With that in mind, NESN Nation’s Dan...

Panthers at Bruins game preview

Game time: 7 p.m. ETTV: FOX Sports Florida The Boston Bruins have clearly played like one of the Eastern Conference's top teams, which is perhaps why their last result was so disappointing. A matchup at home Thursday night against the struggling Florida Panthers should provide Boston with a good opportunity to bounce back. The Bruins (17-4-3) won three in a row and nine of 11...

Bruins Should Take Initiative Against Panthers, Set Foundation for Future Rivalry Thanks to Realignment (Video)

The Bruins and Panthers don’t have much of a history together, but that might not be the case for very long. After all, Florida is joining Boston in “Division C” next year because of the NHL’s realignment plan, and the two could very easily be seeing quite a bit of each other in the not-so-distant future. While the division in which the teams will battle hasn’t even been...

Chris Kelly out indefinitely with busted tibia

  Chris Kelly is out for god knows how long. It was reported today that he has a broken tibia and is out indefinitely. Ouch. Here's the play for those who don't remember and/or love to watch knee on knee hits: From CSNNE: According to the Bruins, Kelly is out indefinitely. Those looking for a timetable might find it instructive that Kings center Jeff Carter...

After loss to the Peguins, Bruins need for offense becomes clear

The Boston Bruins have a strong grip on the second spot in the North East division, leading Ottawa by 7 points and trailing Montreal by only 1. Other than a few missteps by the defense, there has not been much to critique. Tyler Seguin seems to have found his game having scored 4 times in the past 4 games. Tuukka Rask has answered any questions that may have remained about his ability...

Bruins 4, Panthers 1

Tuukka Rask made 29 saves and Patrice Bergeron scored two goals to help the Boston Bruins beat the Florida Panthers 4-1 on Thursday. Boston won for the 10th time in 13 games and hasn't lost consecutive games in regulation since March 2012. Florida lost for the fifth consecutive time and has dropped eight of nine. Boston scored twice in the first to take a 2-0 lead. Zdeno Chara...

Bruins Blow Another Early Lead, Fall To Penguins. Should You Be Worried?

Penguins 3, Bruins 2 In a matchup of a few Eastern Conference favorites, the Bruins and Penguins had their first meeting of this condensed season on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. While the Bruins came out of the gate strong and put up two early goals in the first period, they wound up choking away another lead and falling on their face as the Penguins reeled off three unanswered tallies...

RECAP: Chokely Carmichael. BRUINS LOSE.

  As soon as the game was over the excuses poured in. Yes, we're sure the Bruins were tired after playing 65+ minutes the previous night. Yes, we're sure the Penguins relentless attack didn't help the Bruins energy reserves. But seriously. They scored their two goals and then just sat back and watched. You CAN'T do that against the Penguins. You just can'...

Bruins Collapse In Pittsburgh, Leave With 3-2 Loss

Last season, the Bruins were the best third-period team in the league, but this collapse was the latest example of why that’s no longer true. One day they’re resilient. The next they’re, well, the victims of a team who decided to be resilient. This was one of those collapses that you could just see coming from a mile away. Like I said after Monday night’s game in Ottawa...

Keys To The Game Vs Florida

The last two times the teams faced off was back in February. The Bruins won 4-1. It was considered the calme before the storm of a rough scheduele ahead. So far it has proven true. The Bruins have lost Chris Kelly to injury, broken tibia, and now the already struggling 3rd line needs help. At first it seemed the Bruins would probably make a trade but now they have to. Kellys injury...
