Josh Hennessy looked at the No. 62 on his jersey and helmet Tuesday morning and laughed, "That's the least of my worries. They could give me 102 and I wouldn't care."
That's undoubtedly the attitude Hennessy will have tonight in Winnipeg if Bruins coach Claude Julien asks him to move from center to wing.
Hennessy, the 27-year-old Rockland native recalled Monday night from the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League), is expected to make his debut as a Bruin against the Jets. The B's, who recalled Hennessy as insurance in case a forward got hurt during a six-game road trip, had to send winger Rich Peverley back to Boston Thursday to have a knee injury examined.
"You'll probably see (Hennessy) play," Julien said Thursday in Montreal, where the Bruins opened the trip Wednesday night with a 4-3, shootout victory. "If there's somebody (new) that's going to be in the lineup, he's the guy that's here - unless (Peter Chiarell...

When Peter Chiarelli said he wanted to keep as much of the Stanley Cup champion roster in tact he wasn't jerking your leg (or anything else). He's offered contract extensions to the Merlot Line and Daniel Paille.
After signing Boychuk to extension this week, BOS has made contract ext offers to Kelly, Thornton, Campbell and Paille, all UFAs July 1.

Brad Marchand plays Bruins hockey -- it's as simple as that. The fans in Boston love it and just about everyone else in the world hates it. When No. 63 takes the ice, players, coaches, fans and Mr. Brendan Shanahan take notice because the scrappy little forward plays hard-nosed hockey (no pun intended). He knows one speed and sometimes that speed is too much to harness. In the...
Back on Wednesday, Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara had the unlucky fortune of getting hit in the face with a puck shot by Montreal's Tomas Plekanec in the Bruins 5-4 shootout win on the road.
After getting hit, you can hear some audible cheers from the Montreal crowd:
After the game, Brad Marchand called the Montreal fans "classless" for their cheering of...
WINNIPEG--Milan Lucic, understandably, was not a happy camper today after learning that his church back home had been defaced with graffiti that said “F--- Lucic. Go Canuks (sic).”
“It’s disappointing and it sucks that people would go to such ...
The Bruins have gotten the news on forward Rich Peverley, and while his season isn't over, the B's will be without the forward for at least a month. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced that Peverley has a third degree sprained MCL in his right knee and will be out for 4-6 weeks. Peverley suffered the injury on Wednesday night in Montreal when he collided with...
Boston Bruins center Rich Peverley will be sidelined four-to-six weeks after suffering a third degree MCL sprain in his right knee, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced on Friday.
Peverley suffered the injury during Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the rival Montreal Canadiens.
The 29-year-old Peverley has collected nine goals, 29 assists and 20 penalty minutes this season.
The Bruins' fourth line has turned in some invaluable performances this year, and Saturday's game against the Nashvillle Predators saw another excellent effort from Gregory Campell's unit. While being heavily defended in the corner of the Nashville zone, Daniel Paille was able to gain separation from the Predators' Kevin Klein and pass the puck to fellow winger Shawn...

(Boston) - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that forward Rich Peverley will be out 4-6 weeks after suffering a third degree MCL sprain in his right knee during the club’s game against the Montreal Canadiens on February 15.
The Bruins strong showing on defense led to a transition attack and gave rookie forward Jordan Caron a great shot against Winnipeg on Friday night. Caron sniped a shot past Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec from just beyond the blue-line to tie to the game up at 1-1. The lead didn't last very long, as the Bruins were in for a tough night north of the border falling 4-2, but Caron'...
MONTREAL--The NHL has no hearings scheduled for today, which means that Brad Marchand will not face supplemental discipline for his clipping penalty on Alexei Emelin last night. It also appears Hal Gill will escape penalty for his leg check on Rich Peverley, which injured the ...
