Loui Eriksson wanted a different result than last night’s 3-2 shootout loss to his former team. All things considered, however, it was a good first step back. Eriksson, who missed five games after suffering a concussion on an elbow to the head by Buffalo’s John Scott, took a regular shift last night with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, seeing time on both the power-play and penalty-killing units. He took four shots, three that were on net, in 20:17 of ice time. “I felt good,” said Eriksson, adding there was no hesitancy in his game. “The head felt all right, and I got some hits out there from them . . . so that’s positive.” His timing and touch were a little off, as expected. Early in the game, he elected to pass on a good scoring opportunity and was credited with both a takeaway and a giveaway. “It felt all right,” he shrugged. “I thought we played really good the first 10, the whole team, and after that, we were putting ourselves in trouble and doing several poor plays out th

Boston Bruins' Loui Eriksson Will "Definitely" Play Tuesday Against Former Team. Johnny Boychuk Expected Back As Well

Tyler Seguin returns to Boston Tuesday night for the first time since the blockbuster July trade that sent the young forward to the Dallas Stars. The man the Bruins essentially swapped for Seguin will make his own sort of return Tuesday night. Bruins coach Claude Julien said Tuesday that winger Loui Eriksson “will definitely be in [the game].” The 28-year-old Swede has missed...

Chara: I hate being in minus column

In case anybody was wondering, Zdeno Chara detests the idea that he’s a minus player one month into the season. The debate can go on until the cows come home about the reasons why he's a minus player, and the overall merits of the plus/minus stat, but the Bruins captain is a minus-1 for the season after 14 games. To put that in perspective, Chara was a plus-80 over the last...

Peter Chiarelli Admits’ Bruins’ Style Hard to Play, But Also Says B’s Need to Be Better in Midst of Slump

The Bruins’ style of play isn’t easy, and it isn’t for everyone. That much was on display in more ways than one on Tuesday night at TD Garden. Tyler Seguin made his return to Boston on Tuesday night for the first time since being traded to Dallas in the offseason. As we’ve come to find since, there were some in the Boston front office who felt Seguin couldn’t play the B’s...

Frustration mounts for the Boston Bruins

Just when it seems like the team is going to get out of their losing ways and get a win in a game they played well in, the Bruins find a new way to take a loss in the standings. Tuesday night, a poor line-change late in the third period resulted in Dennis Seidenberg having to take a hooking penalty leading to a penalty shot. Less than a minute later, a 2-1 game in favor of the Boston...

Berkshire Bank Rewind: Bruins’ Puck Pursuit Leads to Torey Krug’s Goal Against Stars (Video)

The Bruins are a relentless team when they don’t have the puck in the attacking zone, and that was evident in the build up to Torey Krug‘s game-tying goal on Tuesday night against the Stars. A good pinch by defenseman Adam McQuaid and strong puck pursuit by Reilly Smith and Carl Soderberg helped force a turnover, and when Smith got the puck back, he delivered a perfect pass...

Crowd Taunts Seguin. Seguin Schools Rask. BRUINS LOSE.

  Same ole Bruins this season. Too little too late on the effort. Too many mental miscues. A power play more impotent than a 90 year old man on life support. The season is young. The Bruins will in all likelihood make the playoffs. But that doesn't make this **** show we've been watching any better. We love you guys. We're paying to see you. Maybe reward us a...

Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Bruins Looking to Break Out As They Take On Lowly Panthers

BOSTON –The Bruins are looking to turn things around, and lucky for them, the Florida Panthers are in town. With the way the B’s are playing right now, though, nothing’s a sure things. Boston has lost four of its last five games, and they’re struggling in all three zones. But as bad as the Bruins are playing, the Panthers have arguably been worse — and they have been that...

Bruins, Rangers Combine for Monumental Trade Sending Phil Esposito to Rangers on Throwback Thursday (Video)

The Bruins welcomed back a superstar on Tuesday night, as Tyler Seguin returned to the Garden for the first time since being traded to the Stars. Seguin was shipped to Dallas over the summer, and while the unceremonious departure led to a blockbuster seven-player trade, it was far from the first time the B’s traded away one of their cornerstones. From Joe Thornton to Phil Kessel...

Tyler Seguin returns to Boston: Did Bruins give up on him too soon?

When Tyler Seguin steps onto the ice at TD Garden Tuesday night in Boston, it will be not only as an opponent, but as the once future face of the Bruins. Though he played only three seasons in Boston, the current Dallas Stars center will forever be linked to the Bruins probably one of two ways. It could either be as the underachiever the Bruins were right about or the superstar...

Bruins forced to deal with it

No matter how the summer’s blockbuster trade turns out — and we could be years away from determining the real winner — this one thing is certain: The Bruins’ 3-2 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars last night at the Garden had to smart a little bit for the brass. After the B’s lost a late lead on a self-inflicted wound from two of their more veteran players, the teams went...

15. Florida Panthers at Boston Bruins. No Tim Thomas, No Problem - Right?

Man, that Bruins have been pretty ******* bad lately. Losers of 4 out of their last 5 hockey games, Boston welcomes Florida into the TD Garden with open arms. Florida sucks sitting at 14th in the Eastern Conference with a measly 10 points which means Boston is going to play down to their level and get their doors blown off or they're going to be up 1-0 with 2 minutes left, blow...
