Cam Neely never got to visit the White House as Stanley Cup champion as a player. But Monday's visit as the team's president will do just fine. Neely considers the team's visit to be extremely special, saying that it's an amazing opportunity to be able to take part in, regardless of one's political views. He said the best part of the event was that it signifies...
via Fluto Shinzawa of the Bruins Blog at the Boston Globe, Tim Thomas, one of two Americans on the roster, chose not to attend today’s ceremony at the White House, according to GM Peter Chiarelli.
“We’re like a family. We have our issues,” Chiarelli answered when asked if Thomas’s decision overshadowed the visit. “You deal with them, move on, and try and support everyone...
The Bruins are playing without Andrew Ference on Sunday, and they will be without their defenseman for the next two games while he serves a three-game suspension. He joins Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic as members of the Bruins to have been suspended by the league this year, sparking some concerns that Brendan Shanahan is paying extra-special attention to the defending Stanley Cup...
Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette called it a "man's game" today. It was all that and a bit more with three high hits coming from the Philadelphia Flyers. Here's video from Dafoomie showing Tom Sestito's hit on Steven Kampfer, Tom Sestito blindside hit on Nathan Horton and Scott Hartnell's near headshot on Chris Kelly.Clearly the Flyers didn't like...

The Bruins had a very eventful day on Monday, as they paid President Barack Obama a visit at the White House. But forward Chris Kelly still took some time to give NESN Daily a call in order to talk about the day's happenings. Kelly said the White House visit was a special event, and he was very happy to share the experience with his teammates. Tim Thomas elected to not attend...
As if essentially costing the Bruins a point yesterday with an ill-advised and egregious charge on New York blue-liner Ryan McDonagh wasn't enough, Boston Bruins defensemen Andrew Ference will sit out today's game (and likely more) against the Philadelphia Flyers with a suspension.
Hitting the 32-year-old Ference with a three-game suspension, the first of Ference'...
20:00 1st period: Bruins 1-0 With David Krejci unavailable, Bruins now without two-thirds of first line. 17:46 1st period: Bruins 1-0 Makeshift line punches through. Rich Peverley, skating with Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic, scores off Karl Alzner?s stick. 15:15...
PHT: The firestorm started by Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas yesterday continues to burn, as angry Democrats are now speaking out about the snub.
"Team guys don't opt out of team meetings or celebrations. Tyler Seguin goofed up earlier this season, missed a team breakfast and X-and-O session in Winnipeg, and found himself sitting in the press box that night. The importance of being on time, being present, was made clear to the 19-year-old winger. There's no way for coach Claude Julien or GM Peter Chiarelli to...
After Bruins goalie Tim Thomas skipped Monday’s White House ceremony to honor the team, many fans denounced the act as selfish and ill-timed.

8 a.m. ET: The Bruins won't get much time to dwell on Saturday's overtime loss to the Rangers, as they head right out on the road to face the Flyers in Philadelphia on Sunday. The Bruins (30-13-2, 62 points) fell 3-2 in overtime to New York as Marian Gaborik scored a power-play goal with 3.6 seconds left in the extra session. The power play came as a result of an Andrew Ference...
