Found September 18, 2013 on NESN.com:
The battle for Bruins backup goalie is one of the few real positional battles going on in B’s camp, and Niklas Svedberg did his best to make his case Tuesday night in Baltimore. The Bruins were in Maryland on Tuesday night to take on the Washington Capitals in preseason action, and the young netminder looked pretty good against the Caps. The 24-year-old made 12 saves on 13 shots while backing up starter Tuukka Rask. The game went into overtime and eventually a shootout with Svedberg seeing action between the pipes for the shootout. He looked impressive in the eight-round shootout, allowing just two shots against a mix of Capitals regulars and youngsters. Svedberg’s performance set the stage for Carter Camper to win it for the Bruins. See the entire shootout below. Filed under: Boston Bruins, Headlines

Young, New Bruins Vying for Spot on Bruins’ Third Line, Know They Must Be ‘Offensively Gifted, Defensively Aware’ (Video)

Only two spots are open on the Bruins’ third line alongside Chris Kelly, but a handful of hopefuls are making their cases as to why they should be on either side of Kelly when the puck drops in the regular-season opener. Carl Soderberg, Jordan Caron, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser, Craig Cunningham, Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight are all competing for the winger positions, The B’s...

Chad Johnson, Niklas Svedberg Battling for Backup Spot Behind Tuukka Rask (Video)

Goaltender Anton Khudobin proved to be more than competent as the Bruins’ No. 2 last season, going 9-4-1 with a 2.32 goals against average in 14 starts. But now, with Khudobin moving on to back up Cam Ward in Carolina, the Bruins are tasked with finding a new understudy to Tuukka Rask. Rookie Malcolm Subban is a virtual lock to begin the season in Providence, leaving journeyman...

Watch: Iginla Scores Twice, Tim Thomas Watch

    Ahhh, doesn't it feel great to know that the Bruins beat the Habs last night. Sure, it was preseason, and sure, it didn't really mean much at all, but come on, it's always nice to smoke the Canadiens. Anyway, all premature trash-talking aside (although feel free to chirp any Montreal fans), we did see a couple promising hints during last night's game, including...

Gregory Campbell ‘Very Grateful’ to Return, But Ready to Move On and Focus On Season

BOSTON — The last time Gregory Campbell was seen on TD Garden ice, he was hobbling off the ice, barely making it to the bench. He had broken his leg, of course, after blocking a shot in the Eastern Conference finals, ending his season. On Thursday night, Campbell was back on the Garden ice quite literally taking the next step in his recovery from that broken leg he suffered blocking...

Bruins beat Montreal in Preseason Opener

  Montreal, Quebec – After a heartbreaking game 6 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks last June in the Stanley Cup finals, it has been a short but very active off-season for the Boston Bruins as management re-tooled the roster, preparing for what they hope will be another deep run in 2013-2014. With some familiar faces gone, and a few new ones in the mix, there have been a lot of eyes...

Day 2 of Back in Black and Gold Tour Invades Hartford As NESN Bruins Broadcast Team Helps Give Back (Photos)

The Whalers may be gone, but there’s still a thirst for hockey in Connecticut, and NESN’s Back in Black and Gold Tour helped quench that thirst in advance of the upcoming season on Tuesday. After the barnstorming efforts kicked off Monday morning and into Providence on Monday, the NESN Bruins broadcast team of Jack Edwards, Andy Brickley and Jamie Erdahl took off for Hartford...

Providence Pushes Boston Past Capitals

Super short recap today 'cause the game wasn't televised in Boston and the online feed we were using didn't start until the second period. From what we saw it was pretty much a snoozefest. But it was Providence Bruins members that pushed Boston to victory. THE GOOD Justin Florek scored Boston's first goal and then Chris Kelly scored so you know it was a meaningless...

Signs point to Bruins' Gregory Campbell’s return tonight vs. Red Wings

Gregory Campbell could make his return to game action as soon as tonight when the Bruins host the Detroit Red Wings at the Garden. And it will be tonight if Campbell has his druthers. “I think (tonight) is a realistic possibility” Campbell said after yesterday’s morning session at the Garden. “Talking to the surgeon the other day things look good. It’s just a matter of...

Tuukka Rask rooting for Tim Thomas' comeback effort

If all goes according to plan for Tim Thomas, the former Bruins goalie will be suiting up between the pipes for the Panthers when the puck drops in the regular-season opener. The 39-year-old netminder was signed to a professional tryout agreement on Monday after taking a year-long sabbatical from the game, but at least a couple of his former teammates don’t believe the time away...

12 p.m. ET: The Bruins will play a game at TD Garden on Thursday night for the first time since they saw the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in June.

Eight Past Luon...Wait, What? BRUINS LOSE.

  Patrice Purrgeron reporting for duty. Jon was supposed to do the recap, but he made too many Savard jokes at the game so he's in time out. He's bad. Very bad. I hope someone puts cat poop in his favorite shoes. About 10 minutes ago. That'd be hilarious. So the Bruins got crushed. CRUSHED. Detroit beat them like the red headed step child of a rented...

Preseason Game #3: Detroit Red Wings at Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins open up their first home preseason tonight against the Detroit Red Walkers Wings.  As we talked about on #DOYLive last night, the NHL has had a bunch of ridiculous rule changes including:  A penalty when a fighter removes his helmet before the fight Hybrid icing Jersey tuck penalty.  Yeah, the NHL has a rule against having a...
