Found June 22, 2013 on Diehardsport:
Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic was furious after the Chicago Blackhawks’ Dave Bolland scored an empty netter to seal the win.  His anger wasn’t over the empty net goal, but over the fact that the referees let a blatant trip go without being called.  Michael Frolik kicked Torey Krug’s feet out from under him as Krug tried to keep the puck in.  This got the puck out of the zone and up to Bolland for the empty netter.

Key injuries might leave huge holes

Jonathan Toews is "doing much better." Patrice Bergeron is "day-to-day." The questions about Marian Hossa and Nathan Horton have subsided, even though both are likely still hurting. Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final could come down to which team is healthier Monday night at TD Garden, although -- as is often the case this time of year -- it's difficult to judge...

Bruins, Blackhawks Slowly Building Up Animosity, But Hate Remaining Below Canucks-Like Levels (Video)

The Bruins and Blackhawks are developing a healthy dislike for each other, but after all, that’s to be expected. You’d be hard-pressed not to start hating the guys lining up across from you game after hard-fought game, so this year’s Stanley Cup Final is nothing different. Compared to Boston’s last trip to the Cup Final, however, this is relatively nothing. NESN Nation...

Bruins have big fan in Ray Charles, the blind golden retriever

I'm sure that Ray Charles will be tuned in to Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight, cheering on his beloved Bruins. I'm not sure that he'll be able to see any of it, though. No, not because he's dead. Because he's blind.  Obviously, I am not speaking of the Ray Charles that you are thinking of. I am speaking of Ray Charles, the blind golden retriever...

Corey Crawford’s Glove Offers Bruins Opportunity to Get Inside Goalie’s Head Via Early Shot Selection (Video)

Corey Crawford is supposed to have problems stopping the Bruins with his glove. So why does it feel like they haven’t tested him there yet in Game 5? The B’s might be playing mind games with the Blackhawks netminder early, trying to psych him out by refusing to fall into the trap of aiming at his weakness. Instead, they could be trying to make him start over-thinking their shot...

Summertime UFA Target: Nathan Horton

Successful playoff runs tend to make soon-to-be UFA’s very wealthy men and Nathan Horton is in the midst of an excellent postseason. Through 20 playoff games, the veteran RW has 19 points (7 goals, 12 assists) playing on what has been the Boston Bruins best offensive line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. This run [...]

Column: Hawks beating Bruins at their own game

(Eds: Retransmitting. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist A dozen slices of wheat bread and two plates of quartered oranges sat untouched on a table in the middle of the Boston locker room, fortifications for an overtime period that never came. In one corner of the room, attendants piled sticks into equipment bags as fast as they could. In the other, Bruins defensemen...

Milan Lucic Wants to Follow Cam Neely, Asks Bobby Farrelly to Play ‘Son of Sea Bass’ in ‘Dumb & Dumber’ Sequel (Video)

Over the last 24 hours, the prospects for the sequel to Dumb & Dumber just improved dramatically, as Jim Carrey reportedly signed on to the project. The movie maintains a strong cult status among fans of slapstick humor, but it also has a place among Bruins lore, too. Of course, now-Bruins president Cam Neely had a cameo in the film playing Sea Bass, the ornery local who has...

Daily Rundown: Kane Lifts Blackhawks to 3-2 Series Lead

A Basic Recap of Game 5 by RW77

I say basic because I'm in the middle of a study break in Grad School (9 grad credits in 4 weeks means VERY busy).  I'll leave videos and pictures to Goon. Big News The Big News off the bat is that both teams suffered key losses in this game.  In the second period, Bruins star Patrice Bergeron left the game having only played 49 seconds of the second period.  He...
