8 a.m.: There are 30 teams in the NHL, and 27 of them have played more games this season than the Bruins have. While the Bruins aren’t necessarily into the teeth of their schedule yet, business is going to start to pick up, and that starts with a tilt Wednesday in Buffalo. The Bruins will are about to play their first back-to-back set, and that begins with their first meeting of the season against the Sabres on Wednesday night. It’s probably a welcomed change for a B’s team that has already seen layoffs of two, three and four days at different points of their schedule since they began the season on Oct. 3. They’ll play Wednesday in Buffalo before heading home Thursday to face the San Jose Sharks. If you’re going to ease into your first back-to-back of the season, there are few teams you’d rather do so against than the Sabres. They’re the owners of the league’s worst record with eight losses, and Ron Rolston’s bunch has already has a goal differential of minus-15. Buffalo’s only win ...

Milan Lucic took a puck to the face, put two in the back of the net

Milan Lucic has garnered a reputation for being one of the NHL’s toughest forwards and he reminded everyone why during last night’s Bruins-Sabres game. After taking a puck to the face late in the first period, Lucic returned to the ice with a beat-up mug and managed to tally a goal on his very next shift on the ice. The goal, his second of the night, was set up by an absolutely...

Johnson to get a shot

Given the crowded and hectic schedule of last year’s NHL season Tuukka Rask was happy to sit and watch backup Anton Khudobin play a decent number of games — 14 out of 48. This season Rask’s new backup Chad Johnson has played zero games. That is a ratio that cannot last and it may change tomorrow night when the Bruins face the Sabres in Buffalo. “We’ll probably give him...

Terry O’Reilly Recounts Time With Bruins During His Number Retirement Ceremony on Throwback Thursday (Video)

Terry O’Reilly is a classic example of an enforcer in the NHL. The former Bruins winger logged more than 200 penalty minutes in five consecutive seasons, and his rough and tough style of play earned him the nickname “Bloody O’Reilly” in the press. In 14 seasons with the Bruins, O’Reilly tallied 204 goals, highlighted by his 29-goal, 90-point season in 1977-78. The B’s...

Dropping Knowledge: Jarome Iginla's Cold Start Should Cause Concern

The reason I've looked into this is because Ecozens at Stanley Cup of Chowder peaked my interest while writing an amazing post on titled "On Human (Sports) Nature, and The Process Of Letting Go". If for some reason you haven't read this post, you should. Ms. Ecozens touches on a fantastic point that the Boston media has seemingly forgot:  Jarome Iginla is...

Quick Hit Preview: Boston Bruins take on San Jose Sharks

The Bruins (6-2) will be taking on a Sharks team that’s shown no shortage of offense through nine games, leading the league with a ridiculous 40 goals (six more than runner up Toronto) en route to the league’s best record (8-0-1)....

Jack Edwards' Twitter rants are as crazy as his announcing

With the NHL season well underway we're way overdue in checking in on one of our favorite local announcers - Boston Bruins play by play man Jack Edwards.  Let's spin the Jack Edwards Wheel of Insanity and see where we land... [Price is Right Wheel Noise] Crazed Twitter rant it is!  We just narrowly missed out on another Sirhan Sirhan reference. Jacko had to...

Random tweeters try and defend John Scott

Lost in the hubbub of the the World Series last night was the Boston Bruins playing in Buffalo against a terrible hockey team. Everything was going swimmingly for most of the game. The Bruins were scoring goals, they were having a good time, people were laughing at the misfortune of Buffalo. Oh Buffalo. Without you, we would not have most of our hockey humor and the world would be...

Bruins vs Sabres: keys to the game

For the first time this season the Boston Bruins are going to face their "rivals" the Buffalo Sabres. Last season the Sabres went out of their way to sign tougher players because they have to play the Bruins so often. Unfortunately for Buffalo, their team has fallen off the map, so adding those guys doesn't matter anymore.The Sabres have been awful so far this season...

Bruins beat Sabres, 5-2

It wasn't quite the no-doubt victory the Bruins would have preferred leading into tomorrow night's Garden visit by the mighty San Jose Sharks but at least the B's secured the two points they needed against the lowly Sabres — improving to 4-0-0 on the road with a one-sided 5-2 victory.
