Bruins’ Second Effort Against Senators Busts Road Game Losing Slump, B’s are Prepared to ‘Do Whatever Can to Win Games’

The Bruins were able to pull out a win over the Senators Thursday night, lifting their road trip record to 2-1.

Anton Khudobin Bails Bruins Out, Continues to Be Part of Stellar Goaltending Combination

The Bruins went to the dressing after 20 minutes Thursday in Ottawa locked up in a scoreless tie with the Senators. They were lucky to be able to do that, and they really have one person to thank for that, and that’s goaltender Anton Khudobin. Boston was sloppy for much of the first period, but Khudobin bailed them out, particularly in the final minute. The backup goaltender, who...

Luck On Their Seid: Bruins Steal One From Sens With Late Goal

Tyler Seguin reacts to the game-winning goal from Dennis Seidenberg with just 1:04 remaining in the game. Big win. Bigger goals. The Senators outplayed the Bruins for much of the game, but it was a gift goal to tie it and a seeing-eye shot from the point that led to a 2-1, come-from-behind win for the B’s. Both goals came in the final minute of the second and third periods, respectively...

Bruins Will Take Ugly Win Over Senators, But Boston Still Has Plenty of Room for Improvement

Luckily for the Bruins, style points aren’t taken into account when sorting out the standings. If they were, the B’s might be in trouble. But those aren’t the points that matter. The only points that mean anything that are the ones that teams get for wins, and on Thursday night, the B’s got two very important points. Boston was able to avoid losing three straight by beating...

Rich Peverley Miscue Leads to Maple Leafs Goal (Video)

The Bruins’ loss Saturday night to the Maple Leafs was a tough pill to swallow. The B’s put forth a solid effort, but weren’t able to capitalize on their opportunities in front of the net. On top of their offensive woes, the Bruins got caught on their heels in transition, which opened up another can of worms. In the video above, Bruins center Rich Peverley thinks his teammates...

Bruins-Senators Live: B’s, Senators Meet Once Again in Ottawa With Northeast Race Tightening

8 a.m. ET: When you look at the way things were going just about a month ago, you’d probably be surprised to find out that Thursday’s Bruins-Senators game in Ottawa would mean much of anything. Improbably, despite Boston’s hot start and the Sens’ mounting injury concerns, Thursday night’s tussle between Northeast Division rivals is actually a pretty big game for both teams...

Nirra Fields led UCLA's balanced attack with 13 points and the Bruins rolled to a 66-49 win over Stetson on Saturday in an NCAA first-round game.

Missing Bobby Orr One of Biggest Regrets for New Generation of ‘Spoiled’ Boston Sports Fans

Boston sports fans, especially those of the younger generations, have been extremely spoiled in the last decade or so. There’s a group of young sports fans across New England who are growing up thinking championship parades through the city are rites of passage. For that, the younger group of Boston sports fans has appropriately been leveled with the label “spoiled,” and that’s...

Bruins lose to Toronto 3-2, dropping 8 game win streak

If you did not get to watch this game, don't feel bad, you really only missed about 10 minutes of good hockey. The Bruins beat themselves tonight, plain and simple. Each period started with the Bruins seemingly skating through cement while Toronto noticeably playing for a playoff spot.  In the first period, while Boston was just aimlessly gliding around gave Nazem Kadri,...

Bruins Find ‘Tough Luck in Toronto’ for First Time in Years As Long Road Trip Comes to Close With Loss (Video)

Eventually, the Maple Leafs were going to beat the Bruins again. The manner in which it came Saturday didn’t make it any easier. Boston out-shot Toronto by a wide margin, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the three-goal deficit they found themselves in early on in the third period. Anton Khudobin was pulled for Tuukka Rask, but the damage was done and the B’s couldn’t get...

Cam Neely, Jeremy Roenick Recalled Fondly by NHL Players Remembering NHL 94 (Video)

If you grew up in the 90s and/or played video games in the 90s, there’s a good chance the unmistakable sound of a slap shot and a whining goal siren are music to your ears. That familiar chorus, of course, belonged to NHL 94, one of the most influential hockey (or sports) video games in the history of gaming. The good people at EA Sports revolutionized hockey video games with that...

Keys To The Game Vs Toronto
