PLAYERS: Jarome Iginla
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
It’s tough to say a team that has reached the Stanley Cup Final in two of the past three seasons has had a glaring weakness. But at times, the Bruins have certainly lacked a dynamic goal-scoring threat, as evidenced by sometimes too frequent goal-scoring droughts. The B’s made an attempt to remedy that last year when they looked to acquire Jarome Iginla at the deadline. That infamously didn’t work out, and they settled for Jaromir Jagr, which wasn’t exactly a home run. When Iginla came to the Bruins this offseason looking for a job, though, it made sense that the B’s would be interested. They were, and the two sides came to terms on an agreement. While the Bruins knew they weren’t getting the Iginla who averaged 35 goals per season during his prime, there was plenty of reason to believe the 36-year-old who has 530 goals to his name would generate a spark in the offensive zone and on the power play. So far, however, that hasn’t been the case. Iginla has just one point — an assist — i...

Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Brad Marchand Skates Pregame Warmup on Bruins’ Third Line

BOSTON — It hasn’t been a pleasant start to the season for Brad Marchand. The Bruins’ agitating winger hasn’t quite found his game yet with just one goal through four games. Marchand was especially shaky Saturday in Columbus where some potentially costly turnovers showed the forward might be pressing a little bit. Boston coach Claude Julien tried to fix the problem by moving...

Bruins Legend Milt Schmidt Honored With Pregame Ceremony Monday Afternoon (Video)

In honor of the Bruins’ 90th anniversary season, the team is taking the opportunity to pay homage to the rich history of Boston hockey. On Monday, the B’s recognized the teams from the 1940s and ’50s by paying tribute to former Bruins captain, coach and general manager Milt Schmidt, a Hockey Hall of Famer whose No. 15 has hung from the rafters in Boston since 1980.

Bruins Face Unique Challenge With Back-to-Back Matinee Matchups (Video)

Monday’s game between the Bruins and Red Wings began at 1 p.m. — the second time in three days the B’s have gotten started while the sun is still up. After playing — and winning — a matinee in Columbus on Saturday, Claude Julien‘s club took Sunday off before returning to TD Garden for a game against new division rival Detroit. NESN’s Jamie Erdahl caught up with several...

Boston Bruins Fall Just Short of Another Boston Comeback, Lose 3-2

The Detroit Red Wings did something on Monday afternoon that their baseball neighbors could not do the night before: stop a Boston sports team from making another improbable comeback. Milan Lucic scored with 1:20 left in the third period to get the Bruins within a goal, but the Bruins could not find any more magic to score an equalizer and lost to the Red Wings, 3-2. Jonas Gustavsson...

Tuukka Rask up to task

The Bruins are far from a finished product right now — at least not the product they expect to be. Jarome Iginla has not yet found the back of the net. Brad Marchand is forcing things and was dropped to the third line in Saturday’s game. And in that 3-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets the Bruins defensemen were at times brutal when breaking the puck out of their zone. But...

RECAP: Christopher Columbus Sucks. Bruins Lose.

  Bruins lose a matinee home game. Let us show you our surprised face. Boston had plenty of chances. From the stands, it felt like the Boston had the better opportunities, but somehow they couldn't figure out how to bury pucks by Gustavsson. On the other side of the rink, Rask was good but a few mental errors by the defense and an extremely rare **** up by Patrice...

Bobby Orr Says Don Cherry Belongs in Hockey Hall of Fame

Bobby Orr is one of the most respected men in hockey as arguably the greatest player in NHL history. The former Boston Bruins defenseman, whose current job is a player agent, has just released a book titled, “Orr: My Story.” He recently did a video interview with The Canadian Press (h/t Yahoo! Sports) in which he talked about a number of topics from the book, including his thoughts...

Nathan Horton discusses leaving Boston

Photo by: Justin K. Aller/ Getty Images When the Boston Bruins decided to let right-winger Nathan Horton play the free-agent market, admittedly, I was a little torn up. Here was a guy to whom I had become emotionally attached. Forever in my mind will be the image of Nathan Horton, after getting blown-the-****-up by Aaron Rome in Game three against Vancouver, pouring water from the...

Early Season Thoughts

     I think we can all agree, for the most part, that it’s been a pretty good start to the season for the B’s. Sure, there are a few things that need improving, but we’re just getting started. It’s supposed to be like that. The Bruins have started off the season with three wins and two losses, and, as of now, (not that it matters at all, so early in the season) stand...

Pez Says: The Curse of the Pop Star

Thank you Dougie Hamilton, Adam McQuaid, Jordan Caron, Brad Marchand and Reilly Smith.  Thank you.  You've ****** us all.
