We all could see it coming but with the way the Bruins started, many Bruins fans talked themselves out of a possible March slump. Through the first two weeks of March it looked like the Bruins were defying odds. They started the month 6-2-1 but have since lost five of their last seven games before Sunday night’s game in Buffalo. In that time, the Bruins hadn’t scored a first period goal in their last seven games, their worst such streak since 2001. It’s not exactly surprising that the Bruins are having trouble starting games with energy but it’s certainly concerning.
The Bruins continued to lose leads, most notably their two-goal lead against the Canadiens. The late comeback gave the Canadiens sole possession of first place in the Northeast. It was a game that was decided by truly flukey bounces and a very odd penalty on Aaron Johnson, but it was a loss nonetheless, and a loss the Bruins can’t be giving to their division rival. The swoon has had the Bruins creeping South in ...

The Bruins enter Tuesday night’s tilt with the NHL’s best penalty kill, as the B’s have successfully killed off 90.8 percent of their opponents’ power plays.
But in recent years, the Black and Gold have gone on the offensive during the PK and have been able to snipe a few shorthanded tallies. Forwards Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron have combined for 15 shorties during...
And … exhale.
The Bruins got back to their winning ways Sunday night against the Sabres, but it wasn’t without its share of drama. Things remained scoreless until late, when David Krejci and Nathan Horton netted goals to give the B’s an edge.
Of course, without the great play of Anton Khudobin in the early stages of the game, those late tallies might not have been enough. Dobby...
The scoreboard at the First Niagara Center remained unchanged deep into the third period Sunday night, with both the Bruins and Sabres unable to push across a goal.

It looked like it was going to be the same story, Bruins come out sluggish and lose a game that they should have won, but the Bruins silenced the haters as they erupted for 2 goals late in the third period to shut the door on Buffalo, and put a positive note to a rather bleak March.
It looked like it was going to be a tough night. Backup Anton Khudobin helped the Bruins stay in...
Claude Julien-coached teams have traditionally been known for their ability put pucks in the net no matter which line is on the ice. That sort of balanced attack has been absent from this year’s Bruins squad, though, and the B’s will need to drum up some production from the third and fourth lines if they want to break out of their recent funk.
“When we’re successful, when...
David Krejci and Nathan Horton scored goals less than three minutes apart in the third period, and Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots in leading the Boston Bruins to a 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.
Krejci broke open a scoreless game during a scramble in front with 7:06 remaining, and after Horton was stopped twice from in close by Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller. Krejci...
The Bruins hit the road for this weekend, but the ice at TD Garden still saw its share of action.
In the second day of the TD Bank Mini 1-on-1 competition, the Maine Gladiators faced off against Belmont, Mass., in a battle of Boys 10 and Under semifinalists. Goals did not come easily, but Maine’s Derek Metivier slipped one past the Belmont netminder to give the Gladiators a 1-0...
The Bruins have had a pretty miserable March, losing a number of games where they should have easily won, and looking terrible most of the time. Many fans are blaming the personell such as Claude, Chara, Horton and Lucic to name a few. Some are saying Chiarelli has no balls and won't make a deal, even though he offered a decent amount for one of the biggest names on the trade...
You think the Boston Bruins are feeling festive on Easter Sunday?
They've lost 5 of their last 7 games.
The Bruins lost 3-1 to a listless Flyers team on Saturday afternoon. I watched the entire game and it looked to me like the Bruins were content to go through the motions of playing down to a weaker opponent.
In their past four games, the Bruins have trailed 2-0....
After dropping two consecutive games in a shootout, the Sabres posted a goose egg on Easter Sunday as Boston came into the First Niagara Center and left with a 2-0 victory.
David Krejci broke the scoreless game just past the midway point of the third period, which turned out to be the game-winning goal. Nathan Horton added some insurance a few minutes later, but the Bruins already...
It's nice to see that the NHL "finally" gets this, and it's about time that the NHL starts calling the embellishment, fans are tired of watching players diving and flailing all over the ice. Diving is unsportsmanlike behavior and if the refs call this stuff, eventually the players will get the message and stop doing it. Now, it's time for the NCAA on-ice officials...
8 a.m.: The Bruins are struggling to score goals right now, so the Ottawa Senators probably aren’t the team they want to see right now. That’s what will be awaiting them on Tuesday night at TD Garden, though.
The two Northeast Division rivals will meet for the fourth time this season on Tuesday night in Boston. Only four points seperate the two teams jockeying for Eastern Conference...
