TEAMS: Boston Bruins
The Bruins knew it was coming, but they could do nothing to avoid it. The dreaded Stanley Cup hangover has hit them hard at the start of this season. Boston stands just 3-5-0 through eight games, and they've yet to post back-to-back victories while struggling to shake off the effects of their long postseason run and short summer. "You've heard me talking about us addressing and dealing with this hangover, and whether it's been self-fulfilling or not, I believe that it's here in some form," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Tuesday night in a conference call with reporters. "I...

Bruins to Provide Melted Championship Ice From TD Garden to Every Hockey Rink in New England

Looking for a little home ice advantage at your local rink? Nathan Horton might know a thing or two about that. Horton, you may remember, squirted water from the TD Garden onto the Canucks' home ice before Game 7 of last year's Stanley Cup Finals. The Bruins had won all three games on their home ice in convincing fashion so Horton hoped to carry that mojo into Vancouver....

Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand Among Bruins Dressed in Halloween Costumes During Visit to Children's Hospital (Photos)

The Bruins brightened the days of some kids on Tuesday, and in the process, the images will probably brighten the days of a lot of their fans as well. A quartet of B's helped spread some cheer at Children's Hospital in Boston when they showed up to visit with some of the children. To make things better, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid and Jordan Caron all showed...

Zdeno Chara Dressed Up as a Bunny…That is All

Zdeno Chara in all of his glory. You’ll have to show me photographic proof to tell me that this isn’t the funniest thing you’ve seen all Halloween. It’s Zdeno Chara dressed as a rabbit. He’s accompanied by fellow Bruins teammates at a children’s hospital, spreading the joy of Halloween, I guess. I can only hope we’ll get a similar showing at Easter. Just pure gold. H/T: Puck Daddy

Nightmare fuel: Zdeno Chara dressed as a rabbit

You don't have to be Buffy's Anya Jenkins to find this terrifying: that's Zdeno Chara dressed like a seven-foot-tall pink bunny rabbit, flanked by teammates during a Halloween-themed visit to the Children's Hospital.

Bruins Could Use Arrival of Archrival Canadiens to Help Snap Out of Early-Season Funk

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The next chapter in the rivalry is almost here. The Bruins will face the Canadiens for the first time this season on Thursday when the Habs visit the Garden to open a home-and-home series. It's sure to be an emotional game with the long history of animosity between the Original Six rivals, and that might be just what the Bruins need to snap out of their early...

Julien on line changes

Coach Claude Julien moved Nathan Horton back with his old centerman David Krejci and Rich Peverley back with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand for practice today. But as he made abundantly clear in his press briefing, nothing is forever. "A little bit more ...

Who Did the Bruins Pick As the First Boston College Eagle Selected in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft?

There were a total of three Boston College Eagles selected in the 1998 NHL entry draft -- one of which happens to be the current captain of the Montreal Canadiens, forward Brian Gionta. However, the undersized Gionta wasn't the first Eagle to hear his name called in that late-June weekend, as it was the Boston Bruins who plucked an Eagle with their second-round (52nd-overall...

Grindin Gears: I Need My Bruins Fix Edition

Sometimes I wonder what goes through the mind of the NHL schedule makers. The last game the Bruins played was Saturday night against the Sharks (though it could be argued that the last TRUE time the Bruins played a game was last week against the Leafs) and we've had to wait five days for the puck to drop for the black and gold. I don't get how these schedule makers actually...

NHL Betting: Habs vs. Bruins

Original Six rivals Boston and Montreal will renew hostilities when the two meet at TD Garden in NHL betting action on Thursday night.
