WILMINGTON, Mass. -– The Bruins returned to practice Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena bolstered with reinforcements from the trade deadline with newcomers Brian Rolston, Mike Mottau and Greg Zanon all taking part. Zanan's first day in a Bruins sweater even gave the Bruins an extra defenseman for the workout. They hope to have two extra defensemen soon, but Johnny Boychuk remains out with what Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli termed a mild concussion on Monday. Boychuk was injured on a hit from Senators forward Chris Neil on Saturday in Ottawa and missed Tuesday’s rematch with the Senators, but is making progress....

The addition of three veteran players creates a competition for playing time that was sorely lacking after injuries left the club shorthanded in recent weeks. The Bruins now have seven NHL-caliber...

Brian Rolston Happy With Warm Reception From Bruins Fans, But Already Looking to Improve Going Forward

It had been 2,871 days since Brian Rolston last suited up for the Bruins. And while expectations for the aging forward are much tamer this time around, Rolston is already focusing on improving in the wake of Boston's 1-0 loss to the Senators on Tuesday. "I felt okay.

Is Tim Thomas done in Boston?

Aside from Tim’s outstanding numbers once again this season, one would think it’s time for the Boston Bruins to consider moving the elite goaltender to another team to make room for the emerging Tuukka Rask. Tim Thomas, 37, currently has a cap hit of $5,000,000 per annum and is an unrestricted free agent in 2013/2014 [...]

The Bruins made a few moves to help bolster their depth at the trade deadline, but Tuesday's loss to Ottawa showed there is still some work to be done before the B's can feel truly comfortable heading into the playoffs.

Tyler Seguin Says Bruins Didn't Do Enough on Offense Against Senators, New Teammates Fitting in Fine (Video)

Tyler Seguin led the Bruins with five shots in Tuesday night's 1-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators. But neither the kid nor any of his teammates were able to put a score on the board for the B's.

61. Ottawa Senators at Boston Bruins. The Bruins Ottawin, AMIRITE?!

The trade deadline has come and went. The Bruins didn't make a huge splash when the clock ticked to 3:01pm EST. No Rick Nash, no Dustin Brown, no Zach Parise, no Ryan Suter. Instead the Bruins ended Monday with Brian Rolston, Mike Mottau and Greg Zanon, obviously adding more depth than superstar factor. To be fair, I am okay with these deals For Rolston and Mottau they gave...

Jack Edwards Mailbag: Bruins Must 'Go Play in Traffic' in Order to Jump-Start Slumping Offense

The Bruins finally returned home on Tuesday night, and waiting for the was a hungry Ottawa Senators team. The Sens took a much needed win away from TD Garden on the same night that a pair of new Bruins made their debuts.

New Jersey Devils (35-23-4) at Boston Bruins (37-21-3), 7 p.m. (ET)

Yet another shutout loss has dwindled Boston's lead atop the Northeast Division to just a single point. The Bruins aim to rebound this evening with their first season sweep of the New Jersey Devils in 26 years, but won't be able to do that unless they find a way to score some goals.

Vote: Did the Bruins Do Enough at NHL Trade Deadline?

Peter Chiarelli and the Boston Bruins broke their silence on Monday, making a few moves to help add depth to their suddenly injury-riddled roster.
