Found November 10, 2013 on Puck Drunk Love:
Won't someone think of the goalies! Today in a line brawl between the Providence Bruins and the Hartford Wolf Pack, goaltenders Malcom Subban and Scott Stajcer skated out to center ice. This, of course, happened: You'll notice some differences from other recent goalie fights. There were no visible punches to the back of the head, no one goalie skating to the other end of the arena, and I'll assume one of the goalies didn't warn the other one that he needed to protect himself. The AHL:  where goalie fights aren't terrifying. (S/t Adam Herman of the NYR Blog and @mybruinsOface)

Five for Fighting: Bobby Robins

Bobby Robins amassed 316 penalty minutes during the 2012-13 season for the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.

Robins started the 2013-14 season on the injured reserve list with the Boston Bruins in the National Hockey League, but after his return to the AHL it didn’t take the forward long...

Report: Rangers’ Chris Kreider Will Not Be Suspended for Questionable Hit on Scottie Upshall (Video)

Luck was on Chris Kreider‘s side on Sunday. First, the Panthers were unable to capitalize when Kreider’s dumb and unnecessary cross-check on Florida’s Scottie Upshall near the benches forced the Rangers to play a man down for the final 1:15 of a one-goal game. Some, including Larry Brooks of the New York Post, thought the NHL might suspend Kreider for the hit, which came just...

Bruins Honor Veterans, Family From Lee Brice’s ‘I Drive Your Truck’ in Pregame Tribute at TD Garden (Video)

Claude Julien ‘Fairly Pleased’ After Win Over Toronto, Still Looking for More Consistency Out of His Team (Video)

Who Was the Last Head Coach to Coach Both the Bruins and Maple Leafs?

Who was the most recent head coach to coach both the Maple Leafs and the Bruins? Answer...

Is Mats Zuccarello’s ‘lack of finish’ an issue?

Photo: Lou Capozzola/Getty Images North America Mats Zuccarello’s response to his healthy scratch against Philadelphia has been nothing short of immense.  At the time, Zuccarello was stumbling through the season doing nothing to warrant an extended future with the Rangers. Alain Vigneault was fully justified in removing the little Norwegian from the line-up when he did. Since...

Vintage Athlete Of The Month: Terry O’Reilly (VIDEO)

In the rough-and-tumble world of Irish Boston, no trait is valued more than loyalty and nothing respected more than the ability to take care of oneself. Translated to the world of hockey, that means a tough enforcer who can handle things when they get the rough. Today’s fans might identify Shawn Thornton as that kind of player for the 2013-14 Boston Bruins. But back in the day...

Bartkowski ready to jump into Bruins lineup

Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Banged-Up Maple Leafs Take On Bruins at TD Garden

BOSTON — The Toronto Maple Leafs are back in Boston, but they don’t won’t have the full roster that’s helped them tie for the Atlantic Division lead through the first few weeks of the season. The Leafs come in a little thin down the middle, as both Tyler Bozak and Dave Bolland are hurt and out for the foreseeable future. That’s led Toronto to shake things up at the center...

Bruins-Lightning Live: B’s Try to Make It Three Straight, Host Bolts in Veterans Day Matinee
