TEAMS: Boston Bruins
Did you know that Tuesday night marks the 87th birthday of the Boston Bruins? Well, sort of. The Bruins' first owner, Charles Adams, was granted the right to own a NHL franchise on Nov. 1, but the team didn't actually start playing until a month later. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette found some other notable people with the same birthday and found some interesting parallels. Now if only the Senators will be kind enough to gift the Bruins a much-needed win... Join NESN Nation: In-game home page | Twitter | Facebook

Benoit Pouliot Feeling Better, But Jordan Caron's Improved Play Could Sideline Bruins Newcomer Longer Than Illness

BOSTON -- With a lack of offensive production and some ill-timed penalties, Nathan Horton hasn't looked like his old self so far this season.

Fallen Soldier Steven Gutowski Given '8-Spoked Salute' by Bruins at Recent Game

The Bruins do their part to honor America's heroes at every home game at TD Garden by giving a special salute to someone who has served the country with pride.

Gutowski died in September while...

Bruins Flash Old Form, Use Balanced Attack to Begin Long Road Back From Disappointing Start to Season

BOSTON -- The Bruins are still a long way from the heights they climbed last season, but for the first time this year they showed a little glimpse of regaining that form.

Bruins Mailbag: Bruins' Locker Room Has Plenty Of Leadership, Other Players Need to Step Up

The Bruins completed an October to forget with back-to-back losses to Montreal, finishing the opening month of the season dead last in the Eastern Conference. It's not exactly the way the champs envisioned beginning the defense of their first Stanley Cup in 39 years. All is not lost however. There is more than five months left in the regular season, and November at least got...

Claude Julien Pleased With Bruins' Compete Level, Hopes to See Same Determination Going Forward

Complete effort gets Bruins needed win

Calling a game on Nov. 1 a must-win might be a little dramatic, but there's no denying that the Bruins desperately needed to turn things around. The defending Stanley Cup champs entered Tuesday night's showdown against Ottawa with a 3-7-0 record, a three-game losing streak and a spot all to themselves at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. The Bruins not only got that...

Bruins alums, hockey community rally behind injured Nate Bibaud of Amesbury

There were no bright flashes of red above the net when Jamison Bibaud scored a breakaway goal against the Boston Bruins Alumni team at Whiston-Bragdon Arena on Saturday night, but Jamison’s older brother, Nate, provided plenty of light. Nate was told he be paralyzed neck-down forever following a car accident last year, but thanks to the generosity of others and fund raising events...

Video: Patrick Kane, Tim Thomas vs. Peggy from USA Prime Credit

Watch on NHL game on U.S. television, and the Discover Card "Peggy" commercials are as ubiquitous as Mike Milbury mouth froth as he bellows about "wussification" or "pansymorphosis" or some nonsense. For the uninitiated: a befuddled, duplicitous Romanian works for "USA Prime Credit" and pretends to be a woman named Peggy while he provides epically...
