TEAMS: Boston Bruins
In sports, it’s often said that the little things are what wins games when it’s all said and done. It doesn’t matter what sport is being played, when a team out hustles their opponent often time they will be the winner at the end of the night.  Throughout the playoffs, the Bruins can be found doing all the little things which is why they have only lost two games in their past seven contests. In the Penguins series, Jagr fought along the boards for a puck in overtime, which would lead to the game winner. Bergeron would talk about the effort Jagr always puts forth by saying, “That little detail, he fought for the puck along the boards and won it. That started the play and got it to Marchand.

Gregory Campbell Exemplifies Bruins’ Team-First Attitude, Says Teammates ‘Would Do the Same Thing’

There was never any doubt for Gregory Campbell. He knew that something was wrong after blocking a shot in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, but he also knew he had a job to do.

The Bruins forward may not have known it at the time...

Brad Marchand Accuses Andrew Shaw of Eye Gouging, Calls Blackhawks Winger a ‘Kitty Cat’

Putting Brad Marchand and Andrew Shaw on the ice at the same time creates a powder keg of agitation — one that finally blew up in the closing seconds of Game 3 on Monday. As Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell dropped the gloves in front of the Boston net, Marchand and Shaw did the same. The fights did not exactly follow “hockey code,” as a particularly...

Life Is Good In Boston

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, The Blackhawks are supposed to be a great hockey team. They won the Cup three years ago and set an NHL record when they came out of the gate without losing any of their first 24 games in regulation. They recovered from a 3-1 series deficit against Detroit. They overwhelmed the defending Stanley Cup champs from Los Angeles. They went...

Tuukka Rask Calls The Ice ************ After Shutting Out Blackhawks

A.B. Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask says the TD Garden ice was ************ on live TV after game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks. But after saving all 28 shots to post his third shutout of the 2013 NHL playoffs, I’m pretty sure he gets a pass. Especially in Boston where we encourage profanity.

Unlikely Goals From Unlikely Sources Continue to Power Stanley Cup Final (Video)

Think you know what’s going to happen in these playoffs? Think again. The unlikeliest of heroes continue to emerge for the Bruins during their Stanley Cup run, and Game 3 was no different.

Lord Stanley Game Three

Just a few things that caught my eye: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool Joel Quennville four times? Shame on the organization. Zdeno Chara was in the dressing room with a skate issue for at least four shifts and Quennville failed to get Jonathan Toews on the ice for any of them. How does that happen with today's technology? Tuukka...
