        Bruins forward Loui Eriksson, whom, as you probably know, suffered a concussion via John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres, is not expected to join the Bruins on the ice for any of this week's three games. He joined the Bruins at Ristuccia Arena, the Bruins Practice Facility in Wilmington, Mass. today, but isn't ready to return to the ice yet. B's head coach Claude Julien seemed unsure of when the new Bruin will return to the lineup, but he did seem to be on the positive side of things.“He’s doing better,” Julien said after practice, (via ESPN.com.) “The one good news is he showed up this morning, came by and that’s usually good news when a guy can leave his home and come to the rink. We’re taking it day by day with him. I think right now, you’re not going to see him for the next week, and I don’t think he’ll skate in the next week. We can put it at that stage for now.”     With an injury such as a concussion, it's tough to predict exactly when Loui will return, h

Bruins think Loui Eriksson (concussion) is getting better

On Monday, Boston Bruin Loui Eriksson visited his teammates and staff which lead his head coach, Claude Julien to almost be optimistic, this according to CSNNE.com. Julien said, “Every day you guys are going to ask about a concussion, and it is what it is.”  “He’s doing better, I guess. ‘I guess’ is because you never know. The one [piece] of good news is that he did...

Dougie Hamilton Dresses as Giant Baby As Bruins Make Annual Halloween Visit to Children’s Hospital (Photo)

The Bruins are, if nothing else, very good sports when it comes to doing things for charities. That’s especially true when it comes to brightening the days of sick children around Halloween. The B’s have developed an annual Halloween tradition of dressing up in (often times ridiculous) costumes and heading over to Children’s Hospital to hang out with the kids. Bruins captain...

Boston Bruins still looking strong

(Photo: Barry Chin/Boston Globe) Despite Thursday’s miraculous win over the San Jose Sharks who dictated the pace of most of the game and Saturday’s tough loss to the New Jersey Devils in the last two minutes of the game, the Bruins have shown much improvement and high hopes for the future of the team this season. Heading into another three-game week the Boston Bruins are still...

Jarome Iginla fond of short stint with Pens

As far as return engagements that pull at the heartstrings, Jarome Iginla’s trip to Pittsburgh to face the Penguins tomorrow night won’t really compare to the homecoming he’ll receive on Dec. 10 in Calgary, where he played the first 151⁄2 seasons of his NHL career. But the fact of the matter is only five months ago, the Bruins right winger was wearing a different black...

GARTH'S CORNER: Eriksson Doing Well, For Guy With A Concussion

Good news for concussed Boston Bruins winger Loui Eriksson. Bruins head coach Claude Julien told Bruins TV on Saturday morning that Eriksson is making progress in his recovery from his injury that he suffered at the elbow of Buffalo Sabres winger John Scott. "Loui's doing okay, I guess, for a guy who suffered a concussion," said Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien...

Bruins streaking top line only ones to show up

If the Bruins are looking for something to cheer them up after Saturday night's heartbreaking 4-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the TD Garden, then they shall look no further than the production of their top line. Yes, their "top" line. Last season, there was plenty of debate as to what line was the team's top line. Was it David Krejci's line? Or was it...

The Dreaded Two Goal Lead! BRUINS LOSE

I really have now words for the game I watched last night. After the first period, we all thought the game was over - and apparently so did the Bruins. Yes, one can totally blame the referee for making a horrible call on Bergeron's "Delay of Game" penalty, but the Bruins shouldn't have put themselves in that position to begin with.  But then I...

B’s Beat: Reilly Smith Has Been A Pleasant Surprise.

When the Bruins sent Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars on the 4th of July this year, it left many fans and players speechless. To give up on such a young player with such a high ceiling is completely unprecedented. Going along with Seguin to Dallas was Rich Peverley, and defensive prospect Ryan Button. In return, the B’s received Loui Eriksson, an excellent yet underrated two way...

Pez Says: It Is Time To Change The "Delay of Game" Penalty

The "Delay of Game" penalty has plauged the NHL since it's inception. It bit the Bruins in the ass Saturday night when Patrice Bergeron inadvertantly put the puck over the glass and put Boston 6-on-3 against New Jersey. Here's the video, curteosy of Dafoomie. If you haven't ever been to Dafoomie's channel, that's ashame. He continually posts Bruins...

Stiffer Penalties for Illegal Checks Needed

In case you haven’t noticed in the wake of John Scott’s hit to the head of Loui Eriksson but suspensions are way up in the NHL this season. Assuming Scott is accessed supplemental discipline, and I’d bet just about anything he will get a lengthy timeout, that raises the number of suspensions for dangerous hits to eight on the young season in a total of 139 games played. Last...

Bruins-Penguins Preview

Since the start of 2012, the Pittsburgh Penguins have won every regular-season game they've played against the Boston Bruins. That surely doesn't bother the Bruins considering they won every game in the Eastern Conference finals. Boston's visit to Pittsburgh on Wednesday night is the rivals' first matchup since that stunning sweep which saw Bruins goalie Tuukka...

Don Cherry defends John Scott

Don Cherry has made some ridiculous comments over the years. Controversial statements from Cherry are the norm. You can add some more to his resume as he has now taken a firm and unbelievable stance defending Buffalo's John Scott.  On his Hockey Night in Canada segment, Cherry defended Scott and believes Scott's actions were due to limited time on the ice. Due to his...

Second Take with Brad Gelber – The B-Lo Bullies

Growing up a Buffalo Sabres fan there were teams I was destined to hate. Whether it was the cross-border rivalry with the Leafs, or teams that ended Cup runs like the Senators/Hurricanes, certain teams provoked painful memories. Then there were teams I grew to hate, not because of their record, or a specific moment in time, but because of their style of play. There was one team more...
