Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic is 25 years old today (6/07/1988). A good birthday present for Mr. Lucic would be a series win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
BEST OF MAXIM
Boston Bruins forward Gregory Campbell sustained a broken right leg during the second period of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday when he was hit by a slap shot by the Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin.
Campbell was unable to get off the ice because the Penguins controlled the puck, so he endured the pain for 45 seconds before heading to the locker room.
He will be out...
The Boston Bruins aren't fancy. The Pittsburgh Penguins are.
So, fancy that the Bruins devoured the Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals. They finished a four-game sweep with a 1-0 victory Friday night in Boston. The victory completed one of the most dominant series in NHL playoff history.
For instance, defenseman Paul Martin led the Penguins with two points. Those would...
Do you think the refs would have called the kneeing penalty on Brad Marchand if Chris Kunitz would not have retaliated with the slash?
Both did receive penalties and rightfully so.
Okay, admit it, how many of you hockey fans thought the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference finals would be this easy for the Boston Bruins?
Yeah, thought so.
The B's rode a Patrice Bergeron goal in double overtime, combined with stellar goalkeeping by Tuuka Rask for a 2-1 win Wednesday night and a 3-0 lead in their Best-of-7 series.
Rask stopped 53 of 54 shots, the goal...
Pinch yourself, what you just witnessed over the course of seven days really happened.The Boston Bruins closed out the Pittsburgh Penguins at TD Garden with a 1-0 score courtesy of an Adam McQuaid rocket-blast 5:01 into the third period.The Bruins are on their way to their second Stanley Cup appearance in three years where they will take on either the Chicago Blackhawks or the Los...
The Bruins took a 1-0 lead into the final minute of Game 4 on Friday, but the Penguins would not go down without a fight.
With goalie Tomas Vokoun pulled for an extra skater, Pittsburgh unleashed one last flurry in the Boston zone. Pascal Dupuis nearly capitalized with Tuukka Rask on his knees outside the crease, but the Bruins’ scrambling defense prevented the Penguins from getting...
By: Rich Bergeron The Boston Bruins battled the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night for nearly five full periods of riveting hockey. It was the closest game so far in the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals until Patrice Bergeron put the Bruins up three games to none with a soft touch of his stick in front of the net off a hard pass from Brad Marchand. The goal came with...
Just a few things that caught my eye:
Best save of the night? Zdeno Chara's backhanded snag in the last minute. That stung, but not as much as it would have had the puck found twine.
Tuukka Rask, second-best goalie in the world or just lucky? Discuss.
Patrick Kane finally showed up Thursday night. He even back checked. Amazing.
Three weeks ago the Bruins were clinging on life support. After blowing a 3-1 series lead in the first round vs Toronto the Bruins looked like their season was coming to a close. 10 minutes to go down 4-1, every Bruins fan was talking about blowing the team up. But, we all know what happened next the Bruins got that extra kick of life, scoring 3 straight un-answered goal and the...
The Boston Bruins defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 Friday night, completing the series sweep, and earned thier second trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in three years. Adam McQuaid scored the lone goal of the game, and Tuukka Rask stopped 26 shots to earn the shutout, his second shutout of the series. He stopped 144 [...]
s/t to Nicholas Scibetta. Okay, I have to admit that this was a bush league move, I admit. Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand was given a two minute minor penalty for kneeing and Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz was given a two minute minor for slashing.
Surging Rask hopes to lock up Stanley Cup berth for Boston.
