Bruins coach: Backstrom not targeted

Boston coach Claude Julien says it's ''ludicrous'' to think the Bruins would target the head of Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom, who missed half the season with a concussion. Asked Wednesday for his reaction to Washington coach Dale Hunter's charge the Bruins were ''crossing the line'' by going after Backstrom during the teams' first...

BREAKING: Apparently Patrice Bergeron is bit of a dirty player

We found this video by way of Japer's Rink. It's a video done by CSN-Washington on the questionable plays by the Boston Bruins. We got a good chuckle out of it since for the most part nothing really happened beyond basic NHL penalties or the Bruins retaliating to the Captial's post-whistle extraciricular activities. **** happens. It's part of hockey, especially in...

Join NESN.com Bruins Reporter Douglas Flynn for Twitter Q&A on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

The Bruins and Capitals engaged in another battle on Monday night, and this time, things really started to get chippy. The two teams traded blows and jawed at each other throughout the game, which ended in a 4-3 Boston win. But as we look to Game 4, there's plenty of questions to ask and conversations to have. With Game 4 not until Thursday, there's still plenty of time to...

Bruins Get Boost from 4-on-4 Play, But Must Translate Some of That Success to Struggling Power Play

The Bruins were a dominant team skating 5 on 5 throughout the regular season. In fact, they led the entire NHL with 193 goals with a full complement of skaters on the ice during the regular season. They're special teams play was more inconsistent, with a penalty kill strong for most of the year (11th in league, 83.0 percent) and a power play that finished in the middle of the...

Report: Karl Alzner Apologizes to Brad Marchand at Bruins' Team Bus Following Game 3

While it'd be easy to assume any apology directed at Brad Marchand from the Capitals would come from Jason Chimera, it was apparently Karl Alzner who wanted to clear the air following Game 3. According to reports, Alzner apologized to Marchand at the Bruins' team bus after the game on Monday. The apology comes after Alzner caught Marchand with an elbow to the head earlier...

Bruins Must Crowd Braden Holtby, Improve Power Play to Win Series Against Capitals (Video)

Through the first-two games of their opening-round playoff series, the Boston Bruins had gone 0-for-6 on power play opportunities. The power-play woes, which were a huge issue during their 2011 run to the cup, had gotten better throughout this season but apparently it's still in need of some fine tuning. Barry Pederson and Gord Kluzak surmised that the B's need to improve...

Days of Y'Orr turns 2!

It was two years ago today Jon wrote the first post on Days of Y'Orr, a photoshop-frenzy of Marc Savard returning to the Bruins roster and bashing Ryan Miller in the head with a metal chair. As you can see, not much has changed in two years.Since then it's been photoshops of Kaleta ******* goats, Timmy Thomas descending from the heavens, Boston Bruins noir videos, a dash...

Bruins Live Blog: B's Look to Take Control of Series Against Capitals in Game 4 in Washington

8 a.m. ET: The Bruins have a chance to take a commanding lead in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series when they take on the Capitals in Game 4 in Washington on Thursday. A win will give the Bruins a 3-1 lead in the series and a chance to close it out on home ice back in Boston in Game 5 on Saturday. But if the Capitals can take advantage of their home ice on Thursday, the...

Nicklas Backstrom Suspension Could Be Difference in Bruins-Capitals Series

With the Bruins leading the Capitals two games to one, Boston's first-round series is far from over. Game 4 is fast approaching on Thursday, and it could mean another nail in Washington's coffin. The biggest factor falling the Bruins' way is the suspension of Caps star Nicklas Backstrom. The forward will serve a one-game suspension Thursday after cross-checking Rich Peverley...

Nicklas Backstrom, Stagnant Power Play Continue to Post Problems for Bruins (Video)

Through the first two games of their opening-round playoff series, the Boston Bruins had gone 0-for-6 on power play opportunities. The power play woes, which were a huge issue during their 2011 run to the cup, had gotten better throughout this season but apparently it's still in need of some fine tuning. Barry Pederson and Gord Kluzak broke down the near nonexistent power play...

Marchand a diver?

Here is an entertaining and humorous video about Brad Marchand and his apparent diving that he did during game three against the Washington Capitals. The one play where Nikolas Backstrom hit him from behind, Marchand was off balance and basically already falling down, I will excuse that flop. That being said Marchand's diving is nothing compared to Ryan Kesler. Related...

Hunter: Bruins targeting Backstrom's head

One of the dirtiest hockey players to ever play in the NHL is accusing the Boston Bruins of going after Nicklas Backstrom. I guess the former goon Hunter would be able to spot this type of behavior on the sight? In case you’ve forgotten, this is the same Dale Hunter that delivered one of the direst cheap shots I have ever witnessed to former Islander former Pierre Turgeon in Game...
