For the second time on this young season, the Bruins put up four goals on their way to beating the struggling Islanders in what almost had the feel of a home game with the random breaking out of “Let’s go Bruins!” chants from some of the 12,788 fans in attendance. Four different B’s scored in this one as the Black and Gold continued their torrid start to the season with an impressive 4-1 victory on Long Island.
Brad Marchand‘s team-leading 10th goal of the season 38 seconds into the second period stood up as the game-winner as Tuukka Rask stopped nearly everything that came at him in the game, leading Boston to their fourth straight win. He improved to 6-1-0 in his career against the Isles with his second win of the year over the team that ended his season in 2012.

May 10, 2010, roughly 10PM. It was an electrifying moment. Overtime. Marc Savard, back on the ice for the first time in two months, skating left to right across the ice, palms up, fists clenched between his knees with a giant smile across his face.
Though David Krejci was the one that put the puck in the net, every skater played a part in the Bruins’ third goal Tuesday night.
Zdeno Chara controlled the puck in the Bruins zone before sending a pass to Nathan Horton streaking down the right side. Horton’s centering pass to Milan Lucic drew in both Islanders defensemen, leaving Krejci wide open for the one-timer. It was a...
So, after Marchand put another one in the back on the net last night, it got me to thinking, if this was going to be an 82 game season, how many goals would Marchand be on pace for? After doing the math, it comes out to 51, or 55 goals depending on if you count the game he didn't play or not. Either way, 50+ flipping goals? If you had told me last year that Marchand would be...
The NHL sounds like its ready to add even more outdoor games, and the Bruins are reportedly looking to get in on the action.
TheFourthPeriod.com reported earlier this week that the NHL is looking to hold as many as four outdoor games in 2014, starting with the Winter Classic on Jan. 1 between Detroit and Toronto. The report also indicated that outdoor games could be hosted at Yankee...
The highlight of the weekend for Bruins fans was certainly big man Zdeno Chara‘s spinning backhand goal — highlights of which have since swept across the internet. It’s never too early to look back on such an impressive display, and Tuesday’s Crown Royal Maple Smooth Finish did just that.
Check it out in the video above.
The Bruins have enjoyed much success on the road this season, which can only be seen as a positive as they wrap up a five-game trip on Tuesday.
After a couple of successful stops in Florida, the B’s are inching their way back to Boston with a stop on Long Island, where the Islanders have had a bit of trouble defending their own turf this year. Then again, it isn’t going to be...
“6’9 and he’s a ballerina!” – NESN’s Jack Edwards.
Bruins 4, Islanders 1
The Bruins and Islanders met for the first time this season on Tuesday night and the Isles, like most of the teams the B’s have faced off against in the past few weeks, headed into the matchup struggling to put it all together as a team. While the Bruins entered Tuesday with an 11-2-2 start, the Islanders were sitting in the basement of the Atlantic Division...
For last night's Days of Y'Orr Pregame Show, I had a feature all set up where we looked at how much each Bruins cost per point scored, with cha-ching sound effects and everything, and then my Internet went and **** the bed. We were able to finish the DOYLive show but I had to cut the feature for time sake.
But I didn't want the graphics to go to waste.
The Boston Bruins have the best winning percentage in the Eastern Conference, but what the Ottawa Senators are doing may be even more impressive given their injury-decimated roster.
Both teams put winning streaks on the line as these Northeast Division rivals meet for the first time this season Thursday night in Boston.
The Bruins (12-2-2) are fully healthy and playing like it...
Man, the Bruins really gave it to state of Florida didn't they? Just absolutely took that state and humped it into submission, like watching a drunk dog trying to hump a Japanese sex doll. Just really dug in there and just buried their puck into Florida's netting. Forget for a minute that the Bruins basically played on a melting glacier and think about seeing 12 of...
Oh how time flies.
It was just a couple days more than exactly five years ago that David Krejci broke onto the scene. The now-26-year-old forward scored his first-career goal against the team that, coincidentally enough, the Bruins were playing Thursday night — the Ottawa Senators.
Relive the goal in Thursday’s edition of the Captain Morgan Legendary Moment.
The Bruins were left shorthanded for four minutes on Sunday, and they lost one of their best players for an additional 10 minutes as well, but head coach Claude Julien had no problem with the situation.
Having the league’s top-ranked penalty kill may have something to do with that, though.
Milan Lucic was given a double-minor Sunday for retaliating against what he thought was a...
