So it shouldn't come as a surprise that it took a little while for the news that he had been nominated for an NHL award to sink in. Boychuk has been chosen by the Boston chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association as the Bruins' nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the "player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey."

Bruins compare Lucic to Sloth from 'The Goonies'

Rule No. 1 about traveling with the Bruins is apparently "Don't fall asleep" on the team plane because if you do, you will have your picture taken and it will end up on the Internet.

Boston Bruins Nathan Horton Looks Like Descendant Of George Washington

A.B. Hair don’t lie. These two are definitely related. Centuries apart but the same side flip mullets. There isn’t a shampoo in the world that can make your hair do that.

Ty Anderson: Bruins smash Leafs 8-0 behind Rolston's four-point night

Call it a throwback night at the TD Garden.

Yeah, quite a night indeed. But you had a feeling that'd be the case when the Leafs...

73. Boston Bruins at San Jose Sharks. Bruins After Dark Edition

I'm not going to complain about the start times. My lovely Euro friends have already called me to the mat on them, so I will refrain from mentioning them. I swear I will. Anyways, the Bruins are about to being the dreaded California road trip. If it was December or January, I wouldn't have a problem with this, but there's something about heading out west in March that...
