The Awesome Boston:
A.B. Here’s a little background for those of you who don’t stalk the Boston Bruins like a few of the writers here do (online stalking only, of course):
For the past 3 years, the Boston Bruins have selected a unique fashion accessory to be worn post-game by the player of the game. The tradition started with a vintage Boston Bruins windbreaker during the 2011 Stanley Cup run and has since evolved into an industrial sized lock & chain last year and a Army Rangers jacket this year for the 2013 playoffs.
If you need background on what MFK is, you have come to the wrong place.
Bro Juneau‘s picks:
Marry – Bruins Windbreaker
This windbreaker will forever be the holy grail of Bruins playoff accessories. Not only was it the accessory that started this playoff trend and the first to be draped on Lord Stanley’s cup – it also nursed Horton back to health after he took a brutal season-ending hit from Aaron Rome in 2011. I love this jacket.

BEST OF MAXIM
(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images) BOSTON-- According to a report from DJ Bean of WEEI’s Big Bad blog, the Bruins announced on Tuesday that they recalled defenseman Torey Krug from Providence. General manager Peter Chiarelli made the announcement, but did not offer any additional information about other player injuries. Wade Redden and Andrew Ference missed Tuesday’s series...
Bruins head coach Claude Julien told the media that winger Brad Marchand, who left Thursday’s morning skate “wincing in pain” after what appeared to be an injury, will be playing in Game 1 against the Rangers on Thursday night.
“He’ll be fine. He’ll be out there [Thursday night],” Julien explained.
According to reporters Matt Kalman and Joe McDonald...
When the Bruins defeated the Maple Leafs in overtime on Patrice Bergeron's goal, completing an epic Game 7 comeback in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, my first thought was this: I wonder if Jack Edwards survived.
The Bruins play by play man is a little crazy (he even admits to that in his Twitter bio) and a Hawk Harrelson level homer. Sometimes his craziness...
Most great goals are triggered by equally great, but often overlooked defensive plays.
That was certainly the case Thursday night, when a textbook poke check by Zdeno Chara near the Bruins’ blue line in overtime led directly to Brad Marchand‘s game-winning goal. Marchand beating Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist five-hole will be what shows up in all the highlight package, but...
Check out Andy Brickley stay all calm and composed fixing his jacket well Jack Edwards goes insane in the booth after Patrice Bergeron scored in OT of Game 7 to give the Bruins the series against the Maple Leafs.
I guess all we can really say here is thats just “Jack being Jack”… one of a kind

Shock, confusion, and heartbreak. That’s how the Toronto Maple Leafs season ended Monday night during Game Seven of their first round match-up against the Boston Bruins.Up 4-1 with less than eleven minutes left in the third period, it seemed almost certain that the Leafs were about to upset the Boston Bruins and move onto the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. But, somehow...
CBS SportsPatrice Bergeron, probably the MVP of the Bruins this season, has been named one of the three finalists for the Selke Trophy, the award given to the best defensive forward in the league. Bergeron will try to defend his title against two other stellar players in Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings, and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks.As we all know, Bergeron...
Milan Lucic, obviously excited over the Bruins' epic Game 7 come back against the Maple Leafs, shook something other than Dion Phaneuf's hand in the post-game.

We still don't know what the hell happened. When the Bruins went down 4-1 we wanted to grab a box of kittens and punch each one in the face. (PURRGERON NOTE: I hope Jon loses both of his testicles for that comment)
The Bruins we had seen for the last month of the regular season and through much of this series could not, and according to their attitude on the ice, would not...
Putting the puck past Henrik Lundqvist is a huge challenge for the Boston Bruins.
Of course, they have to get it to him first and that's a tough task against the shot-blocking New York Rangers.
''They're definitely going to be laying down to block those shots,'' Boston forward Patrice Bergeron said after practice for Thursday night's series opener. ...
By now, if you've not heard about the Boston Bruins historic game 7 comeback, you're living under a rock. As you probably know, my forte is writing about the Boston Celtics. However, this video was a heart moving, passionate and exciting moment in Boston sports history that I feel deserves your attention. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did... (via Sean Bakke)
