Which Three Bruins Were the Last to Score at Least 30 Goals in the Same Season?

Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand have a chance to do the unthinkable. And Milan Lucic has an outside chance at making the Black and Gold faithful's heads spin. Seguin and Marchand entered Thursday night's game with 26 tallies apiece and are inching toward the ever-evasive 30-goal plateau with six games remaining. Lucic, at 24, still has a shot to get hot and bury six in six...

Bruins' 'Jekyll and Hyde' Play Can Be Remedied by More Consistent Offensive Effort

The Bruins have been, at times, this season a Jekyll and Hyde team. And more often than not, that comes down to what they're doing in the offensive zone. When the B's are going good, the goals come in bunches, as do the wins. That's why things like the return of Rich Peverley and the evolution of the Benoit Pouliot-Chris Kelly-Brian Rolston line come as much welcomed...
