PLAYERS: Lane Macdermid
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
The Bruins have been ravaged by injuries of late, with the shuttle from Providence working overtime to bring up enough new bodies to fill all the voids created. The results produced by those replacements have been mixed, but at least one newcomer has fit in seamlessly into his role with the big club. Forward Lane MacDermid made an immediate impact when he dropped the mitts on his very first shift in the NHL last week, taking on Rangers heavyweight Mike Rupp. But MacDermid has proven capable of contributing with the gloves on as well, keeping the "Merlot Line" clicking while...

Bruins Assign Lane MacDermid to Providence

Upon arriving in Boston, Lane MacDermid stepped up his game in the wake of some injuries and immediately gained the respect of his Bruins teammates. But the 22-year-old will head back down to Providence for the time being. General manager Peter Chiarelli announced on Tuesday that the club has assigned MacDermid to its AHL affiliate in Providence. MacDermid was recalled on an emergency...

Bruins Call Up Trent Whitfield. I'm Dead Serious, Again

The Bruins have called up Trent Whitfield from Providence to be used on an emergency basis. This could be because Patrice Bergeron and Max Suave left the Bruins game against the Penguins on Sunday. Or it's because the Bruins and AMC are partnering to promote The Walking Dead and figured that this is the perfect time to do it. Also, Haggs dropped this lovely tweet on our asses...

Veteran G Turco fares well in debut with Bruins

Marty Turco made his debut with the Boston Bruins after replacing Tim Thomas to start the second period of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Turco made several stellar saves among his 20, but yielded two goals as the Penguins recorded their season-best ninth straight victory with a 5-2 triumph. The 36-year-old Turco was playing in Austria prior to the Bruins signing...

Tuukka Rask Thinks Bruins' Struggles Are Mental, Stresses Importance of Maintaining 'Battle Level' (Video)

This season has been inexplicable for the Bruins. After a Stanley Cup hangover, the B's looked like the best team in hockey for a while, only to then fall back down to earth over the last two months. Goaltender Tuukka Rask, who is sidelined with an abdominal/groin strain, said that he thinks Boston's recent woes have been more mental than anything. He thinks that the B'...

Bruins Searching for Answers After Dropping Third Straight With Lopsided Loss in Tampa

The Bruins have been flirting with disaster for the last couple months, and on Tuesday night in Tampa, everything finally fell apart. Now the Bruins just have to hope they've hit bottom with their 6-1 loss to the Lightning, and that they can use this defeat as motivation to finally turn their season back around. "It's disappointing to say the least," Bruins coach...

Patrice Bergeron's Injury Looms Large as Bruins Suffer 'Hart, Broken' Wrath of Evgeni Malkin, Penguins (Video)

If you dreamt up a worst-case scenario for what could happen on Sunday during the Bruins-Penguins game, you might have come pretty close to what actually happened. The Penguins jumped on the B's early and never looked back. What's worse, Patrice Bergeron, Adam McQuaid and Johnny Boychuck all ended up hurt, leaving the B's even more shorthanded than they were heading into...

Send Billy Jaffe, Mark Mowers, Barry Pederson and Craig Janney Questions to Be Answered on 'The Instigators'

Just when the Bruins seemed to have finally turned a corner and were prepared to assert themselves as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, they show off some of their worst hockey of the year. A pair of back-to-back wins in Toronto and then at home over Buffalo seemed to have Claude Julien and the B's back to their early season success. But a visit from Washington...

Tuukka Rask to Make Live Appearance on 'Bruins Face-Off Live' Tuesday Night at 7 p.m. on NESN

When Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask went down with an injury during a March 3 game against the Islanders, it didn't look good. There were plenty of B's fans who feared the young goalie's season would be done, but there's still hope he'll be able to return for the postseason. Rask will be a guest of Dale Arnold and Mark Mowers on Tuesday night, as he'll make...

RECAP: Cloud Nine. PENS WIN.

  This game was embarrassing for the Bruins.  A few of their players injured themselves out of their own stupidity.  Tim Thomas looked like a complete joke.  The defending champions had no answer for the hottest team in the NHL.   Speaking of which, the Pens are like 21-4-something in their last however many games that stat is.  That is unrealistic. ...

Go Behind the Scenes With Jack Edwards, Andy Brickley (Photos)

Ever wonder what it's like to be "high above ice level" with Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley? Now's your chance to see what it's like to be the voice of the Boston Bruins. Jack and Brick, who started calling B's games together back in 2005, have quite the set up at the TD Garden, as seen in the photo gallery below. Click here to go behind the scenes with...

Malkin not disciplined

Another questionable hit on a Boston Bruins by a Pittsburgh Penguin and another Penguin escapes punishment by the NHL. So basically, don't expect a player to get suspended if they hit a Boston Bruin with a questionable hit. I could see how Boston Bruins fans might question the NHL and their judgement. Also, I think that Brendan Shanahan is basically a fraud and no better...

Recap: Bruins listening to the wrong Queen songs. Bruins lose.
