I wrote about this topic 2 weeks ago when Tyler Seguin had 6 points (4 assists 1 empty netter and 1 "real" goal). Since that day the Bruins have played 5 more games and Seguin's point total has raised a whopping 3 points! (3 Goals 6 assists) In no way am I bashing Seguin, because he is one of my favorite players, and I will explain later in the article how he is helping this team. However, I wanted to compare Seguin's stats to the man he played with in Switzerland, Chicago Blackhawk's star, Patty Kane Granted the Bruins have only played 14 games so far, which is the least throughout the whole NHL, so maybe just maybe Seguin will unleash in the next few weeks when the schedule condenses. Nevertheless, let's look at Kane's stats.  To Kane's advantage he has played an extra 3 years in the league, and played 3 more games on the season. Also, he is in no way the same player as Seguin,  I am clearly comparing the fact that they both played over seas, a...

Bruins Spend Off Day in Florida by Fishing, Enjoying Fact They Aren’t in Snowy Boston (Video)

Tyler Seguin and the Bruins aren’t in Boston this week, and they seem pretty happy with that fact. After all, when presented with a chance to escape snowy Boston for a couple of days and soak up some sunshine in Florida, most people would jump at the chance.

In Friday night KHL playoff action, Neftekhimik goaltender Matt Dalton was ejected for slashing Ak Bars Kazan forward Alexei Tereshchenko in the groin. It happened in the second period while the game was scoreless. Tereshchenko positioned himself right in front of Dalton on a power play when Dalton slipped his stick between Tereshchenko's legs and nailed him in the groin, then...

Bruins Clear Winners of Trade With Panthers That Brought Nathan Horton, Gregory Campbell to Boston

Sunday’s Captain Morgan Legendary Moment laid the foundation for the Bruins’ historic Stanley Cup run of 2011. Back in June of 2010, the B’s sent struggling defenseman Dennis Wideman and a pair of draft picks to the Panthers in exchange for forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Only third-round pick Kyle Rau is still in the Florida system — though he has not suited...

Dougie Hamilton Continuing to Grow as Player Despite NHL’s Steep Learning Curve (Video)

Dougie Hamilton burst onto the scene with much aplomb, but has quietly come back down to Earth after a hot start to his young NHL career. While the rookie defenseman has seen his ice time decrease incrementally as the season has gone one, there’s still plenty about Hamilton’s game for Bruins fans to feel positive about. Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley discussed Hamilton’s development...

Bruins Rookie Dougie Hamilton is Impressive!

It looks like rookie Dougie Hamilton is impressing the right people! The general manager of the Boston Bruins, Peter Chiarelli, is realistic in that he knows that some struggle is part of having a talented, young rookie on his team but he is also impressed by him. Hamilton is only 19 years old and playing [...]

Bruins Weekly Review: Train Keeps Rollin’

So I guess I should call this the Bruins Bi-monthly review because I keep forgetting it every other week.  Anyways, the Bruins have continued to be the consistent force we’ve gotten used to over the last three or so years.  They win mostly low-scoring games and don’t usually score the prettiest goals but they get it done.  Although they’ve played either three or four fewer...

Bruins’ Penalty Kill Proves Dominant Again as Boston Completes Florida Sweep in Sunrise (Video)

With a 4-1 win over the Panthers on Sunday, the Bruins enter the most brutal portion of their schedule on a three-game winning streak. The B’s penalty-kill unit was dominant during the stretch, as it has been all season, and has held opponents scoreless on 20 consecutive power plays. In fact, Boston has allowed just three power-play goals all season, good for a 94.8 percent penalty...

Vote: Which Bruins Player Has Been the Most Pleasant Surprise So Far This Season?

The Bruins are off to a great start this season. With just two regulation losses through the team’s first 14 games, it’s safe to say that coach Claude Julien has to be happy with what’s transpired so far. What might be most surprising about the team’s success, however, is who is providing some of the biggest contributions to the roster. Who would have thought that resident...

Where is Chris Kelly?

One of the biggest surprises of last year's Bruins season was a 20 goal, 39 point output from long-time Senators forward Chris Kelly, the best all-around season of his career. The performance is largely what earned him a 4-year, 12 million dollar contract with the team. But so far this year Kelly has been somewhat absent from the score sheet. Despite playing in all 14 games...

Ty Anderson: Take Five: Horton hears a two as Bruins handle Bolts

Capping a brutal stretch that’s seen the Boston Bruins skate in just six games in the past 20 days, the Bruins’ third leg of a five-game road trip that’s included a loss in Buffalo and a win in Winnipeg found the Black-and-Gold in Tampa Bay for their first meeting of the year with the high-flying Lightning. Turning to Tuukka Rask for the second straight game, and...

Zdeno Chara spin-o-rama goal against the Florida Panthers

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara is known for his size and strength, standing at 6’9″ 255 lbs.  Chara has won the hardest shot competition in the NHL All Star game multiple times, and owns the record for the hardest shot at 108.8 MPH.  After his goal on Sunday against the Florida Panthers, it might be time they add him to the shootout portion of the skills competition....

Bruins Take Advantage of Poor Florida Change to Net Power-Play Goal (Video)

The Bruins’ power-play attack still leaves much to be desired, but the B’s capitalized with a Panther in the box on Sunday. Just over two minutes into the second period, a poorly timed change by Florida allowed Boston to make a 5-on-3 rush into the Panthers’ zone. Chris Bourque drew a pair of defensemen to him near the right boards, leaving a wide-open lane for Daniel Paille...
