The NHL trade deadline has come and gone and we saw a bunch of big names get moved this year, such as Jarome Iginla to the Penguins, Jaromir Jagr to the Bruins, Jay Bouwmeester to the Blues, Derek Roy to the Canucks, plus many more. The deadline had some weird timing though this year for head-to-head leagues, as some leagues were already in their first week of the playoffs while the rest will be starting the playoffs this week, so hopefully some of those team changes didn’t affect your team’s chances too much. But it is what it is in this condensed season so good luck to you all who made the playoffs and are still battling it out in them. Going to be the biggest week of the season for some of you so let’s get right into it and check out the Weekly Breakdown for Week 12:
Here is the weekly breakdown for the rest of this upcoming week, April 8 - 14:
4 GAMES: BOS, BUF, CAR, CGY, COL, STL, TBL
3 GAMES: ANA, CBJ...

Amica Winner: Jaromir Jagr
BOSTON — The Jaromir Jagr experiment in Boston has been pretty successful thus far, aside from the whole trying to figure out where to put him part. The Bruins may have gotten that answer Monday night against Carolina.
Jagr was one of the best players on the ice as the Bruins dominated the Hurricanes. He was once again strong on the puck, and he created space for his new linemates...
This is gonna be a super duper short game preview 'cause Team DOY will be at Blogapolooza all afternoon and then at the Harp for tonight's Viewing Party. Come on out.
There'll be a trivia contest to win prizes, too.
Obviously this is a huge game standings wise for the Bruins and Habs. Bruins are one point back of the Habs and with a game in hand. A...
It's time for the fourth and final regular season game against the Montreal Canadians. Not only is it a division rivalry game but its one of the most important games of the season as the Bruins and Canadians are neck and neck for first place in the North East Division. The Canadians are in first with 53 points and the Bruins are right behind them with 52 points. A win for the...
The Bruins couldn’t capitalize on their final power play, even when they pulled Tuukka Rask, in Saturday night’s 2-1 loss to Montreal.
In a game with very clear playoff implications, the B’s were like deer in headlights, passing around and not even getting a shot off as the seconds wound down. After acquiring forward Jaromir Jagr and defenseman Wade Redden just prior to the...
The NHL trade deadline occurred this week and I have not yet had a chance to write about it. As is my tradition (here is last year) I like to pick one team as having made the biggest long and short term gain and drop. I define the trade deadline as all the deadline deals that lead up to trade deadline day as well as all the trades that occur on deadline day. Here are my picks...
BOSTON– Monday night’s win over the Carolina Hurricanes might have looked good for the Bruins on paper, but as is often the case, the final score may have been a little misleading. Sure the B’s rolled to a 6-2 win over a hapless opponent, but this was not the dominant effort the score might suggest.
The B’s did plenty of good things, but they’re far from out of the woods...
Last night we saw Jaromir Jagr get dropped down to play with Daniel Paille and Gregory Campbell because of reasons, or as Claude Julien calls it -- defense first. From CSNNE:
“This is a big game and [Montreal] is a good team that’s very good in the offensive zone,” said Julien. “I don’t think Tyler was ready for that. So I had to put a centerman there with some...
Green Men in Vancouver get a laugh out of Camalleri
Force and Sully got a BIG huge laugh out of Mike Cammalleri with their sign showing Jarome Iginla's number retired with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.
This was pretty tame compared to most of their tricks.
Who can forget them showing a cutout of Vince Vaughn in a Canucks jersey in a playoff series against...
