TEAMS: Boston Bruins
You think the Boston Bruins are feeling festive on Easter Sunday? They've lost 5 of their last 7 games. The Bruins lost 3-1 to a listless Flyers team on Saturday afternoon. I watched the entire game and it looked to me like the Bruins were content to go through the motions of playing down to a weaker opponent. In their past four games, the Bruins have trailed 2-0. Good teams, like t...

Anton Khudobin Plays ‘Sunday Savior’ for Bruins in Badly Needed Victory Over Sabres (Video)

And … exhale. The Bruins got back to their winning ways Sunday night against the Sabres, but it wasn’t without its share of drama. Things remained scoreless until late, when David Krejci and Nathan Horton netted goals to give the B’s an edge. Of course, without the great play of Anton Khudobin in the early stages of the game, those late tallies might not have been enough. Dobby...

David Krejci Nets Eventual Game-Winner for Bruins After Two Scoreless Periods (Video)

The scoreboard at the First Niagara Center remained unchanged deep into the third period Sunday night, with both the Bruins and Sabres unable to push across a goal. David Krejci finally changed that with just over seven minutes remaining in the Northeast Division tilt, hammering a Nathan Horton rebound past Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller to give the B’s a 1-0 lead they would not relinquish...

Kelly and McQuaid Skate

Injured Bruins Chris Kelly (fractured tibia) and Adam McQuaid (shoulder) both skated this morning at the TD Garden.  "Adam and I both skated this morning and it felt pretty good to be out there," said Kelly. Coach Claude Julien believes Kelly will be back before the end of the season which is in 27 days (14 games). Good news hearing that Kelly was able to skate and...

Bruins Shut Out Sabres 2-0

It looked like it was going to be the same story, Bruins come out sluggish and lose a game that they should have won, but the Bruins silenced the haters as they erupted for 2 goals late in the third period to shut the door on Buffalo, and put a positive note to a rather bleak March. It looked like it was going to be a tough night. Backup Anton Khudobin helped the Bruins stay in...

Bruins Will Need Production From Multiple Lines to Get Back on Track Against Sabres (Video)

Claude Julien-coached teams have traditionally been known for their ability put pucks in the net no matter which line is on the ice. That sort of balanced attack has been absent from this year’s Bruins squad, though, and the B’s will need to drum up some production from the third and fourth lines if they want to break out of their recent funk. “When we’re successful, when...

Bruins 2, Sabres 0

David Krejci and Nathan Horton scored goals less than three minutes apart in the third period, and Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots in leading the Boston Bruins to a 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night. Krejci broke open a scoreless game during a scramble in front with 7:06 remaining, and after Horton was stopped twice from in close by Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller. Krejci...

Maine Gladiators Edge Belmont to Advance to Finals of TD Bank Mini 1-on-1 Tournament (Video)

The Bruins hit the road for this weekend, but the ice at TD Garden still saw its share of action. In the second day of the TD Bank Mini 1-on-1 competition, the Maine Gladiators faced off against Belmont, Mass., in a battle of Boys 10 and Under semifinalists. Goals did not come easily, but Maine’s Derek Metivier slipped one past the Belmont netminder to give the Gladiators a 1-0...

March is Over, Thank God

The Bruins have had a pretty miserable March, losing a number of games where they should have easily won, and looking terrible most of the time. Many fans are blaming the personell such as Claude, Chara, Horton and Lucic to name a few. Some are saying Chiarelli has no balls and won't make a deal, even though he offered a decent amount for one of the biggest names on the trade...

Bruins Focused on Players on Team, Moving on After Missing Out on Jarome Iginla (Video)

The Bruins thought they had Jarome Iginla — then they didn’t. After losing out on the longtime Calgary captain to the Pittsburgh Penguins — who had also previously acquired Brenden Morrow and Doug Murray — suggesting it’s panic time for the Bruins might not be too far off the mark. Nonetheless, the players that are actually on the team are staying focused, saying that they’re...

Kevin Freiheit: Sabres shutdown

After dropping two consecutive games in a shootout, the Sabres posted a goose egg on Easter Sunday as Boston came into the First Niagara Center and left with a 2-0 victory. David Krejci broke the scoreless game just past the midway point of the third period, which turned out to be the game-winning goal. Nathan Horton added some insurance a few minutes later, but the Bruins already...

Bruins-Flyers Preview

The Boston Bruins figured Jarome Iginla would be in Pennsylvania for a Saturday matinee with his new team. That will be the case for Iginla, but he'll be across the state while the Bruins try to regroup during this visit to face the stumbling Philadelphia Flyers. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli thought he had a deal in place to acquire Iginla from Calgary, but the Flames...

(Video) Steve Ott and Tyler Seguin embellishment

It's nice to see that the NHL "finally" gets this, and it's about time that the NHL starts calling the embellishment, fans are tired of watching players diving and flailing all over the ice. Diving is unsportsmanlike behavior and if the refs call this stuff, eventually the players will get the message and stop doing it. Now, it's time for the NCAA on-ice officials...
