The Boston Bruins are in the midst of their most impressive scoring stretch of the season as the Olympic break approaches, and one player at the heart of this offensive resurgence is veteran winger Jarome Iginla.
The 36-year-old forward scored his 16th goal of the season in Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over the rival Vancouver Canucks at TD Garden. He’s now four goals away from the 15th 20-goal season of his Hall of Fame career.
“I think as a team we’re playing well,” Iginla said to reporters after Tuesday’s win. “We’re playing with the puck a lot more as a group, we’re creating a lot more zone time and scoring chances and guys are feeling good. I think also as a team we’re creating a lot more for each other and playing a lot more with the pucks and we’ve been in a pretty solid stretch up until this Olympic break here.”
As a player known for turning it on in the second half of the season, Iginla’s consistent scoring production is an encouraging sign for a Bruins team that will be in a fight
BEST OF MAXIM
For the first time since Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final, the Boston Bruins managed to defeat the Vancouver Canucks.

Tuukka Rask is likely to be the starting goaltender for Finland’s hockey team at the 2014 Winter Olympics, and on Tuesday night, the mask he will wear in Sochi was revealed.

Finland is expected to be among the five or six nations that will compete for a medal...

Daniel Paille also scored for Boston and Tuukka Rask made 27 saves against the road-weary Canucks, who were coming off 2-0 loss in Detroit the night before.

Loui Eriksson has had some tough time finding a break since arriving in Boston via the Tyler Seguin trade last summer, and he certainly couldn’t catch one during the Bruins-Blues game in St. Louis on Thursday night.
Almost halfway through the first period, Eriksson caught a stick right in the mouth courtesy of a Blues player battling for a loose puck. The high-stick somehow went...
The Boston Bruins are among the NHL’s best teams. They’re leading their division, and they’re also fighting for the top spot in the entire Eastern Conference. Yet there’s still room for improvement.
The B’s made one minor move prior to Friday afternoon’s Olympic trade freeze, which means they’re done making moves until the Olympics are over. Once the NHL season resumes...
Slovakian hockey player Zdeno Chara's bed is way too short, but would you expect anything less out of Sochi?
Hey, in case you weren’t aware, Zdeno Chara is tall. Too tall for Sochi’s Olympic village beds. But don’t worry, an ottoman extension will fix that. At least he was one of the lucky ones to get a pillow.

That's probably Tuukka Rask after looking at the defensive pairing that could be in front of him tonight. It should surprise anyone that Zdeno Chara will not be playing tonight because he's on a plane to ********** Russia. I have no problem with Chara heading to Sochi to be the flag bearer for Slovakia. When the season began Boston made it a point to lower Chara's minutes...
Before Tuesday night’s game, Claude Julien reminded his team that they haven’t beaten the Vancouver Canucks since Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
The last time these two teams met, the Boston Bruins were on the wrong end of a 6-2 shellacking that occurred back in December. But Milan Lucic isn’t worrying about whatever has happened between these two squads in the past...
Why are Bruins-Blues games so magically delicious? Please, PLEASE let them meet in the playoffs. Seven games of this would be ridiculously good. Sure the Bruins lost, but what a great game.
Gutsy performance by the Bruins too. Johnny Boychuk, according to Jack Edwards, had played more games than the rest of the Boston D-Men that were playing COMBINED. The young guys made their...
The Boston Bruins are emphasizing remaining focused on the NHL season as the Olympic break nears, and it has resulted in a 7-1-1 record since the middle of January.

If you scroll to the 2:30 mark of the video, you will see Torey Krug of the Bruins bump into Roberto Luongo, allowing Brad Marchand to score a pretty easy goal.
It was first called a goal but the on-ice officials gathered and ruled no goal, which was the right call.
