BOSTON –- There aren't a lot of positives that can be taken in the immediate aftermath of a season that comes to a sudden and shocking end as the Bruins' did in overtime of Game 7 on Wednesday. But even as the defending Stanley Cup champions tried to take stock of how their season ended in the opening round of the playoffs for the first time since 2008, the strong play of one Bruin could not be overlooked even in defeat. Dennis Seidenberg capped a superb series with another strong effort on Wednesday. The veteran defenseman continued his series-long shutdown...

Ty Anderson: First thing's first for Bruins

For almost six whole games, and with the Bruins left staring down the barrel of a gun named elimination, the Boston Bruins waited for signs of life from their top-line scorers. David Krejci, Milan Lucic, and the 20-year-old Tyler Seguin, players that accounted for 78 of Boston’s 260 goals this season (Or 30% for those math enthusiasts out there), were held to almost zippo...

Bruins vs Capitals Game 7 Chat Feed

Tonight's Game 7 or what we like to call it -- Boston Bruins Hockey. Four Game 7s in two years. Might just start predicting every Bruins series is going to go seven games at this rate. Anyways, if you woke up this morning thinking you'd be used to Game 7s by now you're probably realizing how very wrong you are.Pre-Game reading:Once again it's time to rally the men...

Boston Bruins Added to the List of High Seeds Out

                    The Washington Capitals defeated the Boston Bruins in overtime of game seven 2-1. The 2011-2012 season has ended for the Boston Bruins after their 2-1 game seven overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.  It’s unfortunate that the run to repeat ended this early, but I am not too surprised that it did.  There is a reason that the last team to repeat...

Richard Cloutier: What Should? What Could? What Will? - Part 2

Ding dong, the witch is dead. Well, not a witch. The Bruins. The Bruins are dead. Can you see me smiling from here? All we need to happen now is for the Senators to beat the Rangers, and the Panthers to beat the Devils, and the NHL's failure will be complete. Poor Gary Bettman must be drinking his face off right now, thinking about what the NHL playoffs are turning into. A television...

Ty Anderson: It's Over: B's bounced, Thomas, and the Joel Ward hate

Last spring, Boston and the rest of the hockey-world watched in disbelief as every bounce, match-up and puck seemed to go Boston's way. Everything, no matter how unlikely it seemed, fell in place for the Bruins. Nathan Horton's first round overtime goal a year ago? 99 times out of 100, that's an easy glove save for Carey Price. Breaking through the patented one...

Caps want to take advantage of wear and tear on Bruins

Alzner Shoots (Photo credit: clydeorama) The Washington Capitals have done a lot of talking and at times whining during this series that I don't hear the Boston Bruins doing this as much. I haven't watched them enough this season to know if it's their modus operandi or not. If the Capitals think they are going to run the Boston Bruins out of the building they are...

Steven Hindle: Validation - Caps Dispatch Defending Cup Champs, Believe in Themselves

Epic Game 7 Win Revives Hope in DC It all started with the waiting game. In the opening 10 minutes of Game Seven between the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals, the two teams exchanged a total of nine shots (6 for Boston, 3 for the Caps) and 15 hits (7 for Boston, 8 for the Caps). Neither club had the courage to take control of the play, so the game wafted into a tentative...

Afternoon Line

“For them to judge what knocks you down, they don’t know your balance or what not on the play.  They’re sitting at home watching on TV. I don’t really care what they say. They have no impact on my game, my life. They mean nothing.” -Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins on his reputation of being a “diver”.  More on Boston/Washington from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider.

Good Goal?

from NESN, The Bruins season is over. What the usually means is it’s time to start finger pointing, but not all fingers will be directed toward the B’s offense, defense, power play or bench—it will be at the officiating. Joel Ward’s game-winning goal comes with some question marks as it appeared as though Mike Knuble made contact with Tim Thomas before and while the puck...
