Nazem Kadri celebrates with teammates- (Chris Young/ Canadian Press) BOSTON— For the Bruins, last night’s goal was simple. If they won Game 5 in front of the home fans, they would be moving on to the next round. That was in stark contrast to the goal of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Prior to last night’s game, they were holding on for their dear hockey lives. A loss would send them golfing for the summer, while a win would extend the series and their season, giving the team and its passionate and hockey-crazed fans a glimmer of hope. After Boston started out the game strong, Toronto quickly composed themselves and dominated the play for the rest of the period. There was no scoring in the first frame from either side, but the Leafs held a 19-8 shot advantage, making Tuukka Rask stand on his head throughout the period. The second period was similar in style to the first, except this time, there was a goal to be had. Unfortunately for Boston, the visiting Maple Leafs rattled the cage first as forward Tyler Bozak scored on a shorthanded bid at the 11:27 juncture. Andrew Ference helped with the Toronto goal as…

Toronto Maple Leafs fans taunted Boston Bruins center Tyler Seguin in the third period of Sunday night's 2-1 victory in Game 6 at the Air Canada Centre, which forced a winner-take-all Game 7 on Monday night.
Seguin does not have a point in the first six games of the series, and Leafs fans taunted him with the chant of "Thank you, Seguin!"

JIM ROGASH/GETTY IMAGES BOSTON-- According to a tweet from Joe Haggerty of Comcast SportsNet New England, Bruins defenseman Wade Redden will not play in tonight’s game against the Maple Leafs. Haggerty tweeted the following earlier today. Claude said between Dougie Hamilton & Matt Bartkowski to fill in for Redden (day-to-day). Would be shocked if its not Bartkowski...
Scary stuff right here. You are looking at the CAT scan of Leafs’ defenseman Mark Fraser’s skull after he took a Milan Lucic shot off the head in Game Four.
Fraser was able to leave under his own power thank god. He had surgery to repair a fracture between his eyes and the cranial area.
This just tells you that hockey players are the toughest athletes on the planet.
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...
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 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...
Let the movement begin. Bruins fans need to UNITE against the DREADED seventh game because….
They are hazardous to your health.
They are sixty minutes of PURE HELL and if they go to OT, the devil will laugh as he waits for your burning soul.
The hospitals in New England will be flooded with Bruins fans suffering from heart issues, high blood pressure, ulcers and heartburn from...
What the HELL happened to you? What happened to the team with heart and desire? What happened to the team that gave their all? What happened to the team that gave EVERYTHING on the ice no matter what? Did that team get replaced during the lockout?
The Bruins have been absolutely DISGUSTING this series. If the Bruins had someone like Fleury instead of Rask they...
First off, I am a Tyler Seguin supporter or a “Seguinista” since he was number two overall in the 2010 NHL draft. With that being said, I am not going to tell you his performance in the playoffs this season has not been a disappointment.
He has relied on one offensive move and is not burying his chances. It is maddening.
However, he is battling his ass off for...
The Bruins have a very unique style of play, and it becomes even more pronounced in the playoffs. They’re not a team that’s going to get into a fire-wagon race up and down the ice with opponents. Instead, they’re more likely to out-physical whoever’s in their way, ultimately finding a way to win thanks to gritty heroics.
That’s proving to be a difficult recipe for success...
Boston Bruins forward #46 David Krejci scores the game winning goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime in game 4, the goal capped off his 2nd career playoff hat trick
The Boston Bruins have put themselves in an excellent position for game 5 tonight at the TD Garden. After a big overtime win in Toronto, the B’s head home with a 3-1 series lead having won both games at the...
The Bruins have no one to blame but themselves, and if they don’t figure it out quickly — in less than 24 hours — their season will be over.
The B’s played an inexplicably ugly game Sunday night in Game 6 against the Maple Leafs, and Toronto took full advantage of it. The Leafs won the do-or-die affair 2-1, and they have forced Game 7 on Monday night back in Boston.
I have a bad feeling. I’ve seen this act before. Back in the 2010 SCP when the Boston Bruins were up 3-1 on the Philadelphia Flyers only to lose three games in a row and the series 4-3.
Steve Simmons, Toronto Sun – But everything is tilting in their direction.
All the momentum - if there is such a thing at playoff time - favours the Leafs.
All the pressure - if that...
You've been here before.
The Bruins have been here before.
But most importantly, goaltender Tuukka Rask has been here before.
Holding a 3-1 series lead by way of David Krejci's overtime goal this past Wednesday, a trip back to Boston tonight gives the Bruins to hammer down the final of four nails needed in the Toronto Maple Leafs' coffin. In other words -...
from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,
The moment was immortalized precisely 43 years ago today.
Flashback to May 10, 1970, Boston Garden: The Boston Bruins are leading the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup final three games to nothing and looking for the sweep. The game is knotted at three and the teams are heading into overtime.
A mere 40 seconds into the extra frame, defenceman...
