The Bruins will be tested on Tuesday night in Winnipeg, and how they respond could reveal much about the team’s character.
David Krejci will not be in the lineup against the Jets, after he suffered an injury during the B’s last game in Pittsburgh. Without their top-line center, the Bruins will turn to newcomer Ryan Spooner, who many fans are hoping can step right in and help.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette hopes so, too. See more in the above video.

Bruins fans can exhale, as the club got some good news on the injury front in regards to center David Krejci.
B’s coach Claude Julien told reporters Monday that the forward is day-to-day right now with a leg injury after taking a Johnny Boychuk slap shot to the right leg on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh. The puck appeared to hit Krejci just above the knee, and he needed to be...
The Bruins third line has struggled at time this season. The shaky ways of the line started with Chris Bourque. In 18 games Bourque had 1 goal and 3 assists. Caron was called up and the out look was bright for the line. Caron quickly stepped in, tallied an assists, and looked like he was supposed to be there. Kelly looked like he was improving, he even scored a goal, it's suprising...
Boston Bruins getting lucky with this one. It appears Krejci doesn't have any broken bones, and is being listed as DTD.
David krejci day to day per Claude julien. No broken bones #bruinstalk

Coach said David "came in for treatment and is day to day"-said there are "no broken bones"...

Amica Play of the Week: Tyler Seguin:
We knew injuries in a condensed schedule like this was bound to happen but damn does it suck when it comes all at once. First Chris Kelly went down with a busted tibia, then David Krejci almost got a puck-sized hole blown through his knee. And then last night we saw Adam McQuaid go head first into the boards... again. Happens twice a year. Now it's being reported that...
The Bruins’ injury issues continued Tuesday night and right into Wednesday.
B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday that defenseman Adam McQuaid has a strained right shoulder, and the defenseman could be out 3-4 weeks.
McQuaid left Tuesday’s loss to the Winnipeg Jets in the first period after he was checked by Winnipeg winger Eric Tangradi. The hit sent McQuaid...
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson said it best: “No excuses, play like a champion.”
The Bruins have plenty of excuses should they wish to use them on Tuesday, but that wouldn’t be their style. No, they’d much rather focus on the second part of the above quote, pledging to “play like a champion.” After all, that’s the whole point of playing, isn’t it?
NESN Nation’s Dan...
Peter Chiarelli will be schmoozing with the other NHL general managers this week trying to get a deal done
The Boston Bruins’ Tuesday night loss to Atlanta highlighted a disturbing trend for the Bruins, one that sees them blowing leads in the third period and even failing to pick up points. When this is happening against teams like Pittsburgh and Montreal, two of the higher ranked...

Folks, let's be honest here. The game was over when Wheeler tied it up last night. You knew it. I knew it. And this fact raises an ego-shattering question in the collective heart of Boston...
It has become a very scary trend. During the entire 2011-2012 season, the Boston Bruins were 32-0 when going into the third period with a lead. A flawless record. So far in this shortened 2013 season, the Bruins have lost five games in which they entered the final stanza with a lead. The most recent example coming tonight on the road at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets. Looking to...
They are the Big Bad Bruins. It's as simple as that. The Bruins need to get back to that. The B's have had a strong start to the season, but some third period losses that have come of late have been a result of a lack of physicality, and with it, a loss of...
Bruins lose three on the road for first time this season and have done it by blowing leads in the third period. Like we said, yikes.
At the moment the Bruins have no killer instinct when they get the lead. There's no putting teams out of their misery. At the moment the Bruins are getting leads and sitting on them like a mother hen waiting...
8 a.m. ET: When you look at the way things were going just about a month ago, you’d probably be surprised to find out that Thursday’s Bruins-Senators game in Ottawa would mean much of anything.
Improbably, despite Boston’s hot start and the Sens’ mounting injury concerns, Thursday night’s tussle between Northeast Division rivals is actually a pretty big game for both teams...
