Whelp, folks. After months and months of waiting for the NHL and the NHLPA to get their **** together and sit down and settle things, NHL hockey returns to Boston.
Seriously. Hockey is back. And for those who still think the Bruins are locked out, Jeremy Jacbos splurged on a new banner to welcome fans return.
Speaking of Jacobs, he's holding a press conference for who knows what reason this evening before the game. Guy has a lot of balls or is that out of touch to show his face on the Bruins home opener after he led the NHL Lockout charge this fall/early-winter. If no one asks Jacobs if the lockout was worth it and how he can justify it to fans than the reporters there will have let us all down.
But enough of that asshole. We don't want him ruining our good fun.
Today the Bruins take on the NY Rangers which is the equivalent of being tossed into the deep end of the pool. The Rangers were first in the East last year, seven points ahead of the B...
BEST OF MAXIM
Boston loves its hockey, and the fans made that known on Saturday night during the Bruins’ opening game against the Rangers.
The buzz around the game was evident from start to finish, and it even spilled over to the realm of social media. There, familiar friends Jack Edwards and Rene Rancourt caught nationwide attention, while Milan Lucic‘s opening salvo to the season couldn’t...
As with every single one of their “This Is SportsCenter” commercials, you will finish watching ESPN’s latest ad and crack a smile. The premise is incredible hard to understand but the YouTube description breaks it down thankfully. “SportsCenter cafeteria has a new chef and Henrik Lundqvist is the only person that can understand him.” See, that wasn’t too difficult...
Hopes are high for the Boston Bruins this season and the team’s goalie should be one of the biggest reasons. Tuukka Rask holds a distinct honor in Bruins’ history.
Rask has played 103 total games with Boston, and he’s the franchise’s leader in save percentage. Rask has a save percentage of .926, which is .005 better than Tim Thomas, who’s No. 2 on the list.
Rask has received...
In an astounding turn of events in which ESPN acknowledged the existence of hockey, their new SportsCenter TV ad features Sesame Street’s Swedish Chef and the only person who can understand him: New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. And this concludes NHL coverage on ESPN for this year. See you at the next lockout.
If you want one word to sum up the New York Rangers tonight feel free to use sloppy. The Rangers were defeated 3-1 by the Boston Bruins and were second best in almost every facet. Throughout the season the goals in each game (as well as a brief game summary) will be broken down right here so keep on coming back. Let’s get in to it.

The Bruins are finally a few hours away from puck drop, and the questions surrounding this team will finally begin to be answered.
With the new year comes new expectations, and for this team, those expectations are high. Two years removed from raising the Stanley Cup, and one year since a first-round playoff exit, the B’s are looking to get back on track — and quickly, considering...
How long was the lockout again? And the Bruins had how little of a training camp?
Those might be tough questions to answer after watching the B’s battle the Rangers on Saturday night, after a wild first period ended with Boston on top 1-0. Milan Lucic, who some hinted might not quite be at his playing weight quite yet, answered those critics by scoring the first goal of the year...
Some high expectations are being placed on the Bruins this season, and Tuukka Rask will have to shoulder much of that load. Such is the plight of a starting goaltender after all, especially one taking over for Tim Thomas.
Despite that pressure, Rask looked perfectly comfortable between the pipes as the No. 1 goalie on Saturday, leading the B’s to a 3-1 victory in the first game...

BOSTON — There was a meeting of champions in the Bruins’ dressing room following their 3-1 win over the Rangers on opening night.
Olympic gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman and her family were in the B’s room after the game, taking in the scene and in Raisman’s case, taking in some congratulatory remarks.
Bruins players one by one stopped by to introduce themselves to the Needham...
With a somewhat revamped offense and Rick Nash in the lineup, the New York Rangers' offense was quiet in their season opening 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.
Obviously, it was the first game and players still have to get used to each other, but nevertheless, the Blueshirts did not generate enough offensive pressure. While the Bruins' defensemen are big and do a good job...
The Garden was rocking on Sunday night as the New York Rangers took on the hated, despised and what ever other thing you could think of, Pittsburgh Penguins. Though we all were looking forward to the start of the season last night, I think its fair to say that every Rangers fan was looking to [...]
Really smart pickup by Armstrong and Hitchcock....more to come.
The New York Rangers (0-1-0) lost to the Boston Bruins (1-0-0) by the score of 3-1, tonight. For a box score, visit Yahoo! Sports.
...first off, man it was amazing to be watching hockey again. Felt like a huge void was being filled.
...unfortunately, the Rangers play had many of us wishing the lockout was still going on. Having said that, it's the first game and as Adam...
8 a.m. ET: This is the day hockey fans have been waiting on for way too long. The NHL is back, and it’s back in a big way.
The lockout is over, the accelerated training camp has finished and it’s time to get after it. Professional hockey returns to rinks everywhere on Saturday, and there may not be a better game on the docket than the one set to take place in Boston.
