Tyler Seguin, Zdeno Chara named All-Stars; Bergeron not

Coming as no surprise is that Bruins captain Zdeno Chara was named to the All-Star game, which is to be played on Jan. 29 in Ottawa. He joins goalie Tim Thomas, who was already selected as a fans' vote. Slightly surprising, however, is that Bruins sophomore Tyler ...

Check out this move. That is the second goal in the last four games for the Boston Bruins tough guy.

Tyler Seguin Demonstrates Impressive Finishing Touch Scoring Eventual Game-Winner Against Jets

Tyler Seguin knows how to finish around the net, and he put those skills on display when it mattered most on Tuesday night.

Mark Mowers used the Amica Coverage Cam to break down the goal on Bruins...

And now you can add a cartoonist. Adam Zyglis' cartoon in The Buffalo News surely won't sit well with Miller...
