Bruins Mailbag: Tim Thomas Should Get Some Much-Needed Rest Before Playoffs

Bruins' Decent Start Easily Explainable by Jetlag Theory After West Coast Trip (Video)

The Bruins seem to have a knack for getting better as it gets later, if you look at how they excel in the third period and struggle during day games.

Johnny Boychuk Breaks Down Technique, Feeling of Delivering Bone-Crushing Body Checks (Video)

Brian Rolston's Resurgence Has Linemates Questioning His Age, But Not His Production on Bruins' Red-Hot Third Line

BOSTON – Brian Rolston has 11 points in his last six games and 12 points overall in 15 games since joining the Bruins. This after managing just nine points in 49 games with the Islanders this season.

Bruins' 'Jekyll and Hyde' Play Can Be Remedied by More Consistent Offensive Effort

The Bruins have been, at times, this season a Jekyll and Hyde team. And more often than not, that comes down to what they're doing in the offensive zone. When the B's are going good, the goals come in bunches, as do the wins.
