Milan Lucic, probably more than anyone else in the Bruins dressing room, is a student of the game. He knows the game’s history, he knows the stats, and the historical standing of those who came before him is not lost on the Boston forward.
That’s why it was so special for Lucic to meet with B’s legend Ray Bourque this past season. Bourque, whose No. 77 hangs from the rafters at TD Garden, is often still in the area and is still closely associated with the club. This spring, he met with Lucic to give the power forward a little bit of advice about how to be an even better pro.
“It was big for me,” Lucic told The Province. “It was Ray Bourque saying how he approached the game. Here’s a guy, the highest-scoring defenseman of all time, not caring about the Norris trophies he’s won. He just wanted to be better tomorrow than he was today.”

A Boston Bruins fan’s tattoo paying tribute to the team’s 2011 run to Stanley Cup glory is a brutal scene featuring a demonic, bear-like creature in a Bruins uniform unleashing ultraviolence on Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K.

During a charity event, Avalanche star Matt Duchene came through for a father, whose daughter is a bullying victim, bid enough to win an autographed Bruins jersey for her.
Bobby Orr is a demigod to Bruins fans, and his No. 4 hangs proudly in the TD Garden rafters. Due to his legacy and the overall popularity of throwback jerseys, many NHL fans know what a retro Bruins sweater looks like. It has a slightly different “B” on the chest and a slightly different black-and-gold color scheme.

This is one fierce tattoo.
The Boston Bruins’ 2010-11 season culminated in one of the most exciting Stanley Cup wins for Boston, and one fan came up with a creative way to memorialize the team’s postseason run.

Check out this insane Stanley Cup ink that a Boston Bruins fan has on his arm. The tat pictures a giant demonic bear wreaking havoc on Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and Canucks forward Daniel Sedin, along with the Stanley Cup trophy, the TD Garden, the Bruins logo and Boston’s Zakim Bridge.
Just straight savagery, if you ask me.

Sports can bring out some of the biggest rivalries, but it can also remind us about the important things in life. The Minden Times brings the story of one young Bruins fan who learned just how generous an athlete can be when she received a random act of kindness from Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene. Trista Greer had been having a tough time at school with bullies. Even after...

For our fourth and final installment, how about two of the best defensemen of the modern era in Zdeno Chara and Nicklas Lidstrom? Sure, different styles, different physical builds, but roll with us on this one. There's no questioning each was the No. 1 defenseman on a highly successful team.
