BOSTON — Tomas Kaberle said Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli was waiting for him today when the Canes first arrived at TD Garden.
Chiarelli had something to present Kaberle -- his Stanley Cup ring, for being a part of the Bruins' championship run last season.
"It was an exciting moment," Kaberle said. "Really nice (ring). They did a nice job. I'm sure everybody liked it.
"It was a long season but worth it. But it's a new season now. You have to look at it that way. Boston is going to be our enemy tonight."
Kaberle was a fixture and former All-Star defenseman for the Toronto Maple Leafs until traded to the Bruins on Feb. 18 for Joe Colborne, a first-round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional second-round pick in 2012. He played 24 regular-season and 25 playoff games for the Bruins, and had 11 playoff points, all assists.
It appeared Kaberle might re-sign with the Bruins but he accepted the Canes' offer of three years...

The Bruins and Hurricanes fought during their game. At one point, Zdeno Chara instigated and got in the face of goalie Cam Ward, who set the Bruins straight after the game.
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Steven Kampfer hasn't been cleared for contact, but apparently nobody bothered to inform Milan Lucic of that. Kampfer is working his way back from a knee injury suffered in preseason and returned to practice for the first time on Monday at Ristuccia Arena. He wasn't supposed to have full contact yet, but late in the session he and Lucic collided near...
BOSTON -- After falling to 2-4-0 to start the season following Tuesday's frustrating, penalty-filled 4-1 loss to Carolina, the Bruins knew they would have to make some changes. The first differences were revealed at Wednesday's practice when coach Claude Julien reshuffled each of the top three lines. Only the "merlot line" of Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell and...
The Bruins will get their second shot against Carolina in less than a week when the Hurricanes come to the Garden on Tuesday night. Boston dropped a 3-2 decision in Carolina on Wednesday, but are hoping to put together a better effort in the rematch. "They had our number the other night and we didn't play our best game," Bruins forward Brad Marchand said. "We know...
Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will be checked out by team doctors Monday after suffering a head injury last week.McQuaid fell into the boards midway through the third period of the Bruins' 3-2 loss to Carolina on Wednesday. He has been dealing with head and neck pain ever since, and missed Saturday's tilt with the Chicago Blackhawks.The team's medical staff believes...
It ain't easy being huge. Zdeno Chara can tell you that. The Bruins' 6-foot-9 defenseman is the biggest man to ever put on a pair of skates in the National Hockey League, and while that size works to his advantage, it also puts him under constantly unfair scrutiny. The latest bit came Tuesday night, when the B's captain rushed to teammate Nathan Horton's defense late...
Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will start their four-game homestand tonight against Carolina. David Krejci (core) has yet to practice. It is highly unlikely, therefore, that Krejci will play tonight. Tyler Seguin should center the No. 1...
The Bruins must be sick to death of being asked about the "Stanley Cup hangover." But the questions won't stop...
WILMINGTON, Mass. - Injured Boston Bruins forward David Krejci skated on his own Monday morning at Ristuccia Arena prior to the team's practice, but he's doubtful to play on Tuesday against Carolina at TD Garden.

When a rope has too much pressure pulling on it, it snaps. When an animal is cornered something makes it go off and attack. When a hockey team is under the pressure of the fans, coaches and most importantly themselves, something has got to give.
That has been happening to this season’s edition of the Boston Bruins. After a remarkable Stanley Cup Championship...
Cam Ward stopped 33 shots, and Carolina defenseman Joni Pitkanen had a goal and two assists to lead the Hurricanes to their second win over the Boston Bruins in a week, 4-1 on Tuesday night. Tuomo Ruutu, Anthony Stewart and Eric Staal had the other goals for Carolina, which also beat the defending Stanley Cup champions 3-2 at home last Wednesday.
ST. LOUIS -- A review of the video of the Canes' 4-1 win Tuesday against the Boston Bruins only reinforced what coach Paul Maurice felt and said after the game at TD Garden.
"I think we were a little better than I thought we were in some areas," Maurice said today. "I thought Cam (Ward) made two saves before we got to 1-0 that were hugely important and I thought...
“The guy’s 8 feet tall, and he’s jumping a player. That doesn’t translate as being very tough in my eyes. I’m emotional just like everybody else. When you see that happening to your own players, you wanna ... you know, I had some choice words, too, but it is what it is.”
