Boston Sports Then & Now:
Well, I guess the Chicago Tribune has some company in the CLASSLESS department.
I thought most of the people in Chicago were behind Boston after the marathon bombings, well I guess that changes when we the Stanley Cup is involved.
Just like the fool in Toronto, some simple minded idiots thought it was cute to mock #bostonstrong and the Boston marathon tragedy with #chicagostronger.’
Oh yeah they printed t-shirts too.
Some “children” will never ‘”get it”.

However, it was nice to see some people throttle this ignorant fools:
THIS RT “@meaghannn_: If you tweet #ChicagoStronger I personally just lost every form of respect towards you.”

Anyone who uses the #ChicagoStronger hashtag is a classless idiot. Have a little bit of respect and be better than that. Please.

Seriously, people are using #ChicagoStronger? That’s really classless and disrespectful IMO. Chicago fans are better than that.

Lol seriously? #ChicagoStronger ???? How about some respect here guys??? I don’t even like Boston but that’s just ridiculous…

If you said #chicagostronger or said you were glad Horton got injured I have lost respect for you

To the people that defended Boston thank you, for those that mocked our fallen brothers and sisters…..you are Americans too.

There were probably plenty of heavy eyelids in Boston Thursday, as Bruins’ fans were up late watching the Chicag…
Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton said he's ready to skate in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night at United Center.
Just as crucial, his coach agreed hours before the puck dropped.
"He feels really good, "Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "He looked really good out there, the last two days. There's absolutely no reason he shouldn't play...
The Bruins endured a tough loss to the Chicago in triple overtime in Game One of the Stanley Cup Final. Milan Lucic did have a great game however. He netted two goals and destroyed a Jagr.
Looch collided with Jaromir Jagr and destroyed the Jagr’s beautifully dyed playoff beard.
But the Jagr goes down like no one else, just ask the ladies.
Pot Of Baked...
Boston Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr has grown one of the most epic playoff beards of the playoffs. Jagr seems to be channeling his inner Wolverine, but added a moustache in with the mutton chops. Nothing says ready for the Stanley Cup Finals like rocking this beard.
from Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston,
"Nothing right now because there's nothing to say because our doctors haven't finalized the evaluation properly," Julien said.
During a Bruins power play in the first overtime, a scramble ensued in front of the Chicago net, and Horton was battling for position with Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson when he appeared...
Going into Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins coaching staff will be faced with a decision that they probably never envisioned having to make – to bench rookie defenseman Torey Krug, or not to bench rookie defenseman Torey Krug?
The 22-year old Krug burst onto the scene for the Bruins during their Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Rangers, during which Krug...
Nathan Horton left the first overtime of Wednesday’s Game 1 after suffering a pretty strange, non-contact injury while in front of the Blackhawks net. Horton appeared to injure his left shoulder while jostling with Niklas Hjalmarsson in front of the net towards the end of the first OT in Chicago.
The Bruins forward didn’t return to the game and Claude Julien declined to give...
Twenty-three years ago, the Boston Bruins opened their Stanley Cup Finals against Edmonton by playing a triple-overtime game. I was still over a year away from even being born, but as a fan of the Boston Bruins, I know the story. The Bruins dropped game one at home in what ended up being the longest game in Stanley Cup Final history. By the time the game ended, everyone just wanted...
Going into this series, I always thought that there would be a couple of thrilling overtime games. Little did I know that game one would be a daunting 112 minutes of tough ice time before a winner would prevail. This game was the fifth-longest game in Stanley Cup history, which is mind-boggling to think about. Game one of this series was exactly what most thought it would be, a...

Bruins rookie Torey Krug spent the majority of the regular season playing for the Providence Bruins, Boston’s AHL affiliate, despite a one game appearance with Boston after being called up on an emergency basis the night Boston believed they had dealt Matt Bartkowski in a package for Jarome Iginla. After...
Mick Jagger and Jaromir Jagr have similar-sounding names, so it’s only right that the rock and roll legend would be rooting for the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final. Or something like that.
Whatever the reason, the frontman for the Rolling Stones tweeted his surprising support for the Bruins on Wednesday evening. He posted a picture of himself with a Bruins sweater along with the...
Injured on a Boston power-play in triple-overtime, perennial playoff hero Nathan Horton didnât look like a man ready to play hockey any time soon. Clutching his shoulder, skating off, and not returning in whatâd end as a Bâs loss on a double-deflection from the Blackhawksâ Andrew Shaw, dropping a marathon Game 1 at the United Center, a return to the ice on Friday...
For the second time in three years the Boston Bruins are back to the Stanley Cup Finals. For the second time in three years the Bruins will have to play a highly skilled offensive team in the Cup finals. Its another classic battle of defense versus offense. Eastern Conference versus Western Conference.It was another tough path for the Bruins getting to this Stanley Cup. Just like...
It takes a lot for a hockey player to miss any ice time, especially when the ice time is during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
That’s why Bruins fans were worried to see first-line forward Nathan Horton leave the ice during a B’s power play on Wednesday night and never return.
Horton made contact with Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson in front of the Chicago net...
For the first time in 34 years two of professional hockey’s original six teams meet to fight for the Stanley Cup. The Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks kicked off the grand finale of the NHL season Wednesday night in Chicago with both teams coming into this series with a ton of confidence and momentum. Both won their final games by a single goal: the Bruins in regulation to...
