Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has epic freak out, falls down after slamming stick (Video)

Tuukka Rask Attempts To Go Into Rage Mode, Fails Miserably

GIF: Tuukka Rask wasn't happy losing to Montreal

The Boston Bruins lost to the Montreal Canadiens in a shootout after leading by a score of 4-2 after two periods.

Bruins Claim Daugavins, Krug Sent Up

Youngster, Torey Krug might get game time tonight I guess you could call it a busy couple of days for the Bruins. Yesterday they signed defensemen Matt Bartkowski to a one-way one-year deal. They also signed University of Minnesota-Duluth defensemen Chris Casto to an entry level deal. Today the Bruins continued the transactions by signing the infamous Kaspars Daugavins, the one...

Bruins Claim Daug

I think it's safe to say that if David Dziurzynski had not been knocked out March 6 vs Toronto, Kaspars Daugavins would not have been waived yesterday. But instead we saw a reactionary trade for Matt Kassian, and a useful depth player waived and then claimed by a superior team. AJ Jakubec suggested yesterday afternoon that the reasoning behind the waiving was a complaint...

Forecasting a Rivalry Week for the Bruins

Monday, March 25 vs. Toronto 7:00 pm The Bruins roll out their newly formed lines after one day of practice, and the first team that gets to deal with it are the Maple Leafs.
