BOSTON -- It was a rude awakening. The Bruins thought they were catching a break from the grind of the NHL schedule with a three-day layoff between games this week.

Adam McQuaid, Jordan Caron and Steven Kampfer were among the Bruins who were put through their paces by Tsintsadze before the main practice got under way. "We weren't expecting him today," McQuaid said. "You can see how...

Jordan Caron Making a Case for More Playing Time With Improved Play of Late for Bruins

BOSTON -- For one evening, Jordan Caron once again looked like the promising young power forward who splashed on the scene last season.

Claude Julien Feels Phil Kessel Has 'Matured,' Never Doubted He'd Become Better Player

BOSTON -- On Saturday, the Bruins will meet up with Phil Kessel for the 14th time since the enigmatic forward was dealt to Toronto back in 2009.
