PLAYERS: Tuukka Rask
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
There wasn't a whole lot of positives after the first two periods of Thursday night's Bruins game, so NESN Nation's Dan Duquette thought he would have an open forum for fans to tweet questions. That means a little bit of anything, from what to expect from the B's without Tuukka Rask to predictions for next week's episode of The Walking Dead. It's been one of those games. Check out the video above for a grab bag of Bruins and TV analysis and follow NESN Nation on Twitter for your chance to be a part of the next "Tweetbag." Join NESN...

Boston Bruins stage epic collapse

The Boston Bruins are dead in the water. Dead!“Teams aren’t beating us, we’re beating ourselves,” Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters after his team lost at Florida 6-2. “That’s what’s disappointing right now, we’re beating ourselves. That’s not taking any credit from their team , that played well. But we know our team better, and our team is much better than...

Bruins Mailbag: Claude Julien May Need to Continue Toying With Bruins Lines to See Better Results

There's nothing like a few losses, especially one as ugly as Tuesday's 6-1 setback in Tampa, to get the questions flowing. The Bruins' slump hasn't been good for the club's quest to secure the Northeast Division title and set itself up for another long playoff run, but it certainly has been a boon for the Bruins Mailbag. There was no shortage of questions this...

Rich Peverley 'Getting Better Every Day' As Bruins Winger Continues to Skate on Own to Rehab Injured Knee"

WILMINGTON, Mass. – There hasn't been a lot of good news for the Bruins of late with the club mired in a season-worst four-game losing streak and its lead in the division trimmed to a single point. But there was an encouraging sign on Friday when the club returned to its familiar surroundings at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington. Before the rest of the club took the ice for practice...

Jack Edwards Mailbag: Slumping Bruins Can't Give Up Physical Aspect of Game As They Search for Answers

The Bruins are struggling mightily right now, and things didn't get much better on Tuesday night against Tampa Bay. The Lightning pasted both Marty Turco and Tim Thomas -- and then Turco again -- en route to a 6-1 victory. The B's are banged-up and struggling to find their way, and the result looks to be a lack of confidence. NESN's Jack Edwards discusses that and more...

Defending champs fading in second half

The Boston Bruins once looked invincible – and that seems like a long time ago.From the start of November through January 12, the Bruins went 25-4-1 in one of the best 30-game stretches in recent memory. Yet, aside from that great two-month run, last spring’s Cup champs have looked average at best. Now it’s time for the team, losers of a season-high four straight, to look...

Bruins Search for Answers After 'Self-Inflicted Loss' in Florida Pushes Losing Streak to Season-High Four Games

So Tuesday's 6-1 loss wasn't rock bottom after all. The Bruins followed that loss by continuing the plummet after traveling across the Sunshine State, dropping a 6-2 decision to the Panthers in Sunrise, Fla. on Thursday. The Bruins have now lost four straight games for the first time in over two years. Their last losing streak of this duration was part of a 10-game winless...

Bruins Excited to Spend St. Patrick's Day in Boston, Though Which Players Are Actually Irish May Surprise

WILMINGTON, Mass. – So let's just get the scorecards straight for St. Patrick's Day. The guy named Kelly on the Bruins isn't Irish. But the French-speaking guy named Bergeron? There's your real Irishman. It's a little confusing, but don't worry. Everybody's Irish on St. Patty's Day. The Bruins haven't had a lot to celebrate lately, but they...

Dan Spiegel: Panthers Throttle Bruins To Take Season Series; Getting Healthy

The Panthers came through with a 3-goal second period Thursday night to beat the struggling Boston Bruins 6-2. Florida ended up 2-1-1 against the defending Stanley Cup Champions for the season, and now only 2 points behind the Bruins for 2nd in the Eastern Conference.

'Community' Hiatus, Return Could Offer Hint of How to Fix Bruins' Struggles (Video)

The Bruins are struggling along right now, so maybe they just need a hiatus. Maybe a couple of days away from the ice could do the team some good, since this busy stretch of games lately isn't treating them too kindly. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is running out of other ideas, but this one seemed to work for NBC's Community. Thumbnail photo via Facebook/Community

Tuukka Rask Thinks Bruins' Struggles Are Mental, Stresses Importance of Maintaining 'Battle Level' (Video)

This season has been inexplicable for the Bruins. After a Stanley Cup hangover, the B's looked like the best team in hockey for a while, only to then fall back down to earth over the last two months. Goaltender Tuukka Rask, who is sidelined with an abdominal/groin strain, said that he thinks Boston's recent woes have been more mental than anything. He thinks that the B'...

Bruins-Panthers Preview

The Boston Bruins' recent skid has allowed the Florida Panthers to gain ground in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. If the Bruins' recent efforts in this series are any indication, however, a visit to BankAtlantic Center could be just what they need. Looking to avoid a fourth consecutive regulation loss for the first time in more than two years, Boston...

71. Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins. No Luck Of O'Lucic Here.

Start drinking, you'll need it. Put on your green ******* O'Lucic t-shirt like a super douchebag, pin on your "Kiss Me I'm Irish" pin although your last name is something like Pallazola or Rask, wear some stupid oversized green hat and throw up all over yourself when the Bruins gets properly ****** by Philly. Happy Saint Patrick's Day.  

Ty Anderson: Is it possible that Vancouver broke the Bruins?

When the Vancouver Canucks came to Boston for their first match-up against the Boston Bruins since falling to the Black-and-Gold in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, there was no doubting the notion that the Canucks were a mere hunk of particleboard positioned towards an eight-spoked buzzsaw. Boston entered that matinee affair a staggering 8-1-0 in their previous nine, outscoring...
