Johnny Boychuk wears the Bruins’ black and gold, but under that spoked-B sweater, the Boston defenseman is probably sporting a ton of black and blue. Boychuk has had a rough go of it at times this season, as he continues to get in the way of pucks over the course of the shortened season, and it hasn’t stopped into the postseason. That went to another level in Game 4 when Boychuk blocked seven shots in the Bruins’ overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Boychuk also showed an incredible effort in the second period where he was clearly hurting but blocked shots and went sliding across the ice to help the B’s clear the zone. “When you get a shot on the ankle sometimes you can’t put any pressure on it,” Boychuk said Thursday. “They had control of the puck, they’re not gonna blow it. You try to just block anything and do anything. You’re not really doing any good if you’re lying down.” There was some speculation about Boychuk’s health when the Bruins recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowsk

Claude Julien Calls for ‘Accountability’ From Patrice Bergeron Line As Their Struggles Continue

BOSTON — The Bruins’ line of Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand was the club’s best for much of the regular season. However, since the playoffs began, that trio has gone cold. And as the Bruins find themselves heading to Game 6 in Toronto on Sunday night, it’s about time that line gets heated up again. If they don’t, it could be a big reason the B’s have...

Bruins Must Take Advantage of Tuukka Rask’s Great Play After Surviving Furious First Period (Video)

Goalies can single-handedly swing playoff series and win Stanley Cups, but they can’t do it all in one night. Tuukka Rask appears to be doing his darnedest on Thursday night, however, after a sterling first period against an obviously desperate Toronto Maple Leafs team. Rask made 19 saves in the first period of Friday’s game, some more spectacular than others. When the dust settled...

Bruins Playing Game 5 on 43rd Anniversary of Bobby Orr’s Famous Stanley Cup Goal (Video)

Bruins fans entering TD Garden will likely walk by a statue outside of the arena depicting one of the most famous moments in the club’s and the league’s history. That statue of Bobby Orr‘s Stanley Cup-winning goal in 1970 has a little added meaning on Friday. That’s because Friday marks the 43-year anniversary of the Bruins legend’s Cup-winning goal against the St. Louis...

Zdeno Chara’s Late Goal One of Few Moments for Bruins Fans to Cheer in Best Images From Game 5 (Photos)

It took more than 50 minutes for the Bruins to give their fans something to cheer about, but when Zdeno Chara beat Toronto goalie James Reimer with a wrister midway through the third period, the TD Garden crowd allowed itself a moment of hope.

The hostile stare down between Elisha Cuthbert and Reimer’s wife that wasn’t (video)

In a classic case of “Much Ado About Nothing,” Elisha Cuthbert, the gorgeous actress girlfriend of Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf, and April Reimer, the beautiful wife of Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer, appeared to be setting the stage of a WAG-on-WAG cat fight for the ages when the two appeared to engage in an ultimate stare down during at the conclusion of...

Leafs shock Bruins with 2-1 win, force Game Six

  Nazem Kadri celebrates with teammates- (Chris Young/ Canadian Press) BOSTON— For the Bruins, last night’s goal was simple.

Prior to last night’s game, they were holding on for their dear hockey lives. A loss would send...

Nathan Horton Feels Fine, All Smiles Day After Taking Huge Hit From Dion Phaneuf

Nathan Horton took a big hit in overtime to allow David Krejci to get up ice and eventually score the game-winning goal on Wednesday night in Toronto.

While he was slow to get up from the awkward hit, he told reporters that he felt fine...
