Days of Y'Orr:
On Thursday the Boston Bruins won back-to-back games for the first time in almost a month and a half. It felt good and you can see the team get a nice boost in confidence once Boychuk's blast Â gave the team the lead. They started playing the grittier type of game that won them the Cup. They were getting into the dirty areas and winning the battles. That's what makes the Bruins a great team.Hopefully after Thursday's win they remember what that feels like.Today they take on the Greenless Washington Capitals. Green got Shanabann for this awful eblow to the head.Â Green got three games for it.
Just saw the Green hit that got him suspended. What an asshole. That would've gotten eight or more if Shanahan was still in Wild West mode.

That last bit from Kelly was a joke, by the way. He...

AROUND THE WEB
BOSTON -â€“ While Bruins coach Claude Julien offered some promising news on the status of injured forward Daniel Paille and defenseman Andrew Ference prior to the start of Saturday's matinee with Washington, there was not much new to report on the progress of the club's more long-term injuries. Forward Rich Peverley remains on track for the original projection of missing...
Milan Lucic was voted the NHL's toughest player, and is used to going toe-to-toe with some daunting competition on any given night. So sitting down for an interview with NESN Daily was no sweat for the big fella. Lucic discussed a number of topics during his appearance at the NESN studios in Watertown, resulting in a must-see interview for Bruins fans. Tune in to NESN Daily on...
BOSTON â€“ The Bruins won't be getting any reinforcements back for Saturday's matinee against Washington at the Garden. Forward Daniel Paille (upper body) and defenseman Andrew Ference (lower body) continue to progress from their injuries, but aren't yet ready to return. Bruins coach Claude Julien stated both skated Saturday morning, but won't play against the Capitals...
Although hockey players try to inflict physical pain on each other when fighting, there's still some unwritten rules when it comes to dropping the gloves that are considered sacred throughout the sport. Lucic discussed some of these unwritten rules during his appearance on NESN Daily on Friday, saying that sometimes a bout starts with a simple, "Do you want to go?"...
BOSTON â€“ With a mediocre 12-13-2 mark over the last two months, it could be argued that this Bruins team hasn't exactly looked ready for prime time of late. In a more literal sense, the Bruins actually seem to excel only in prime time, with the club struggling mightily in afternoon games. The Bruins got off to a slow start once again on Saturday, and never fully recovered in...
Bruins pretty much dominated most of that game. They had a lot more quality scoring chances but either couldn't bury it or Vokoun would come up with some miraculous save. It was pretty unreal. Yet despite all those good offensive looks the Bruins still came out with a loss. Almost everytime they made a dumb goof the Capitals were able to jump on it. Add on some questionable reffing...
If you dreamt up a worst-case scenario for what could happen on Sunday during the Bruins-Penguins game, you might have come pretty close to what actually happened. The Penguins jumped on the B's early and never looked back. What's worse, Patrice Bergeron, Adam McQuaid and Johnny Boychuck all ended up hurt, leaving the B's even more shorthanded than they were heading into...
We weren't sure heading into Saturday's game whether Tim Thomas or Marty Turco would get the call in net for the Bruins. Turns out it's going to be Thomas, but having uncertainty in goal is actually a welcome question mark considering the many that have been surronding this team as of late. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is glad to worry about the team's netminder...
The Bruins haven't been themselves in afternoon games this season, as their 4-6-2 record entering Saturday shows. While they've been strong at night, for whatever reason, the B's haven't been able to translate early start times into too many points in the standings. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette looked to our Twitter followers for some guesses about why the B'...
The Bruins are in the midst of a difficult stretch, but with a win over the Sabres on Thursday, Boston was able to secure back-to-back wins for the first time in nearly two months. The B's picked up a 3-1 victory over Buffalo in a game that was close throughout. Boston actually trailed after the first period, but Gregory Campbell's goal turned things around for the Black...

8 a.m. ET: The Bruins won back-to-back games for the first time in nearly two months with victories over Toronto and Buffalo last week. But they couldn't extend the run to three Saturday against Washington. After losing 4-3 to the Capitals, the Bruins will look to start a new streak in Pittsburgh on Sunday as they open a three-game road trip against the streaking Penguins (41...
Three more injuries. This video sums up the Boston Bruins year.Go Providence Bruins!
