         On Sunday, after finishing their morning practices, the Bruins took off to Stowe, Vermont to take part in their annual team building activities. The activities that take place are designed to help bring the team together, and to allow them to work, and bond as a whole. For years, the Bruins have taken part, and now, the core of their roster has seen how the non-hockey events work.“I think it helps,” said Milan Lucic, who has certainly been to through it before. “Every time we come back from it the team gets a little bit closer. Especially with some new faces in the locker room it’s an opportunity to hang out with guys in a different setting away from the rink to talk about other things other than hockey. It’s an opportunity for us to build team chemistry and that team bond and to make it stronger because it’s been a big part of our success the last couple of year.”       There's no doubting that this sort of thing can really help out a club, not only off the ice but on it

Boston Bruins 2013-14 Preview - New Additions

It's that time of year again.  Time to get your sweaters on, cuddle up under the covers, and watch men of all shapes and sizes do things on ice skates that most of us can't do at all.  It's time to see two guys (or in some cases an entire team - goalies included!) beat the snot out of each other just to change momentum or pump their teammates and their fans up.  It...

Milan Lucic Evolving as Leader for Bruins As He Also Continues to Grow Up Away From Ice

BOSTON — Consider this for a second: When the Bruins’ 2013-14 season begins Thursday, it will mark the beginning of Milan Lucic‘s seventh NHL season. For some, it may seem like just yesterday that the bruising forward was bursting onto the scene with some pretty lofty expectations from a fan base desperate for the second coming of a player like, say, Cam Neely. While Lucic’s...

Bruins Waive Nick Johnson After Impressive Preseason From Veteran Forward

Nick Johnson opened more eyes than anyone else at Bruins training camp and into the preseason schedule, but that wasn’t enough for the veteran forward to make the big club. Johnson was placed on waivers Sunday afternoon, as the Bruins reduced their roster to 23 players in advance of their season opener on Thursday against Tampa Bay. The Bruins made the move with the intention of...

Torey Krug Looking to Build On Eye-Opening Postseason, Make Most of Confidence Gained

BOSTON — Torey Krug only has five NHL regular-season games to his name. When the puck drops on the 2013-14 season Thursday night, he’ll most likely be in the lineup playing his sixth career regular-season game. But it’s what happened in between those regular-season contests — between March 27 and Thursday night — that Krug gained a wealth of knowledge and experience. Activated...

Soderberg not likely for opener Thursday

The Bruins today finished up their team-building excursion with an open practice in front of a packed Waterbury Ice Center crowd. There were two notable absences from the practice though as Carl Soderberg (ankle) and David Krejci (back spasms) remained off the ice. In fact it looks like Soderberg who had earned a spot as the third line left wing won't be suiting up for Thursday...

Bruins Newcomers Fitting In to Make Lines ‘Heavy,’ ‘Compatible,’ ‘Strong’ Says Peter Chiarelli

The Bruins added only a few newcomers to the offense this offseason but when the team takes the ice on Thursday night for their season opener with the Lightning, it will certainly have that new-look feel. While the Top Six return its foundation of Milan Lucic, David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, the first two lines welcome a couple of veteran wingers to round out what...

BOSTON — The Bruins won’t officially start their 2013-14 regular season until Thursday night when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning at TD Garden in their first game since losing the Stanley Cup to the Chicago Blackhawks. However, the NHL season kicked off Tuesday night with a slate of games that included Chicago’s home opener. Before that got underway, though, the Hawks raised...

Dougie Hamilton digging in

It was one of two penalties Dougie Hamilton was whistled for in a forgettable first period during a preseason game in Winnipeg last Thursday but it was also a telling moment. The defenseman was called for an infraction after an opposing player he was battling hit the deck. For the 20-year-old that negative play had the faintest silver lining. “Maybe with that one penalty maybe...

Zdeno Chara Fantasy Hockey Picks 2013 2014

Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins is the #9 defense points-only hockey pool pick. He is a Slovakian born player who is 36 years old. He is a beast on the backend. ‘Big Z’ has the hardest shot in the league that is low and accurate, putting fear into his opponents. He is also effective with his breakout passes and his team is a strong contender. A downside to drafting is he is old and may
