Claude Julien Pleased with Depth Added to Roster, Says 'Everyone's Been Put On Notice' There Will Be Competition for Lineup Spots

WILMINGTON, Mass. – The Bruins added depth at the trade deadline, but the additions of Greg Zanon, Mike Mottau and Brian Rolston might bring something even more important to the club. 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. It's good to get that one behind me, for sure," Rolston said of his first game since being re-aquired...

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 [...]

Send Randy Scott, Andy Brickley, Jack Edwards and Mark Mowers Questions to Be Answered on 'The Instigators'

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. Zdeno Chara and the Bruins had appeared to turn a corner after scoring a point in each of their past three games, but the inconsistent play continued on Tuesday...

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. The league is a week or two from really hitting the stretch run, which gives the B's and their new additions -- Brian Rolston, Mike Mottau and Greg Zanon --...

Krejci Tiger, Hidden Dragon

All the way back in 2011 (December 4 to be exact), I said this about David Krejci:  “In a  12 team league he’s a legit #3 Center.”  And even prior to that (November 30 to be exact) I said this:  “Krejci is a key cog in Boston and an ideal #3 Center on your fantasy team.”  And I feel exactly the same today.  Yes he’s capable of awful stretches (just 2 Goals in his...

Corvo aware of crowded blue line

The fact that the Bruins acquired two defensemen in Greg Zanon and Mike Mottau Monday was not lost on Joe Corvo.

Islanders-Bruins Preview

The Boston Bruins are fighting to increase their slim lead in the Northeast Division, and another home victory over the slumping New York Islanders would extend that edge.

The Bruins struggled in February, going 5-7-1 as second-place Ottawa...

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.
