Zdeno Chara rocks out with Slovak band

Who knew Zdeno Chara was an axe man? There are very few things the Bruins captain can't do on the ice, and off the ice he looks to be something of a renaissance man as well. His skills even extend to music as well. The B's blue liner did a little jamming recently at a Slovakian awards show where he was also named Slovakia's top defenseman. As Puck Daddy reports, Chara...

Boston Bruins Sign Son Of Hanson Brother From The Movie Slap Shot

Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton Expected to Lead Offensive Charge for Bruins

The Bruins have remained quiet this offseason, making the decision to stick with their current roster. With no offseason deals being struck, Bruins fans are turning their thoughts to the upcoming campaign.

Bruins Haven't Made Big Splash This Offseason, But B's Can Still Be Happy With Smaller Moves

The Bruins haven't had made a handful of small moves this offseason, but they haven't made a big splash at any point, at least not yet. It's probably unlikely that the B's will make any big moves between now and training camp, but even with teams around the leagues wheeling and dealing and making blockbuster moves, Boston likely feels good where they are right now...

Ty Anderson: No Parise, No Nash, and that's OK for Boston

If the Boston Bruins capitalize on the power-play they were gift-wrapped when Jason Chimera got whistled for 'holding' Boston's Johnny Boychuk with 2:26 to play in the third period of Game 7, the Bruins advance on to the second round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs. If Patrice Bergeron can extend his stick out just a bit further in the opening minutes of overtime, the Bruins...

Boston Bruins Not Likely To Trade For Rick Nash

Although the Boston Bruins are on the approved list of teams that Columbus Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash would accept a trade to, do not expect the 2011 Stanley Cup champions to make a push for the talented winger. Nash would love to play for the Bruins next season and beyond. He would be an instant upgrade to Boston’s offense, especially on their anemic power play...

Bruins made a play for Parise

The Boston Bruins' offseason of ho-hum continued with the club signing some extra pieces and apparently ready to hit the 2012-13 season with basically the same roster as the one that left the 2012 playoffs in the first round. Oh, and word got out that Boston made an offer to free agent Zach Parise before he signed his 13-year contract to leave the New Jersey Devils and join...

Bruins Could Dangle Tim Thomas in Effort to Land Rick Nash (Video)

The Bruins would love to acquire Rick Nash from the Columbus Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old forward wouldn't mind going to Boston either, as the Bruins were one of six teams on Nash's preferred trade list.
