If the Boston Bruins want to break their two-game losing streak they'll have to do it with out MIlan Lucic. After practice today Claude Julien said Looch won't be available for tomorrow's game against the Winnipeg Jets due to personal reasons. He's returning to Boston right away, No Milan Lucic vs. WPG. Has returned to Boston for personal reason. — Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) February 16, 2013 Won't speculate what the personal reasons could be as it could be anything. Whatever the reason it's big enough to miss a day of work. Stepping in for Looch will be Lane MacDermid or Jay Pandolfo. If Julien decides to move Paille or Campbell up the line then we'll see MacDermid. If he decides to keep the Merlot Line in tact then Pandolfo will make his Bruins debut. Seeing who'll actually replace Lucic on the first line will be interesting. Maybe Julien moves Seguin back to the first line to see if more chemistry is sparked. Last time the...

Dougie Hamilton Scores First Career Goal in First Period of Bruins-Sabres Matchup (Video)

New England’s love affair with Dougie Hamilton has been very well-publicized. Hamilton’s early season success has now another chapter, as No. 27 has netted his first career goal. The official time of the goal was 17:56 into the first period, a time Hamilton will likely never forget. Teammate Milan Lucic made sure to grab the puck out of the net for Hamilton, and that puck...

Brad Marchand Completes ‘Road Trip Rally’ as Bruins Come Back Against Jets (Video)

The Bruins answered the bell against the Jets on Sunday. Then, they did it again. Boston came back from two one-goal deficits to beat Winnipeg in the MTS Centre, claiming the team’s first W in the not-so-friendly Manitoban confines. Despite missing out on some chances early, the Bruins held on in the game’s frantic final seconds to escape with two points. Brad Marchand kept up...

Shawn Thornton’s Penalty Shot Highlights Bruins’ Short History With Jets

Bruins fans are accustomed to seeing Shawn Thornton settling things on the ice with his fists, but many forget that he’s capable of pulling some nifty offensive maneuvers as well. That was on display in a game between the B’s and Winnipeg Jets back on Jan. 10, 2012, when the Boston brawler used some fancy stickwork to beat Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec on a penalty shot. But don’t...

Bruins Have Chance to Land Knockout Blow in Latest Battle Against Buffalo (Video)

The Bruins and Sabres have squared off twice already this season, and there have been some pretty physical battles in both meetings. On Friday, the two teams will renew niceties at the First Niagara Center, with the Bruins holding a sizeable lead in the standings. A win away from the TD Garden could all but put the division out of reach for the Sabres, and with all the uncertainty...

Bruins Not Prepared to Play ‘Desperate’ Sabres Team in Uncharacteristic Third Period (Video)

The Bruins played a great 40 minutes on Friday. The problem is that hockey is a 60-minute contest. The Sabres played like a desperate team during the third period, catching the Bruins off guard and scoring three unanswered goals. That turned a one-goal lead into a two-goal loss, and after the game — the Bruins’ second trip to Buffalo in a week — Boston was left wondering where...

Bruins Staying True to Form Against Sabres, Waiting Until Late to Spring Into Action (Video)

The Bruins have had some tremendous success in the late stages of games this season, and that could be playing out once again in Buffalo on Friday night. After trailing for much of the first period, the Bruins sprang into action, with Dougie Hamilton scoring his first career NHL goal. That knotted things up at 1-1, but something tells us the drama isn’t done just yet in this one...

Late Second-Period Goal Key in ‘Desperation’ Game for Bruins (Video)

Those who chose to take an early intermission break during Sunday’s Bruins-Jets game were sorely mistaken. Evander Kane scored to give Winnipeg a 2-1 lead with 27 seconds remaining in the second period, but the action didn’t cease there. Johnny Boychuk responded for Boston, sending a slap shot that was tipped by teammate Daniel Paille past Ondrej Pavelec with just 1.5 seconds...

Bruins Letting Good Chances Slip Away Again After Getting Burned for It Against Sabres (Video)

The Bruins are getting plenty of good chances against the Winnipeg Jets — now, it’s just up to the B’s to start capitalizing on them. Once again, Boston seems the better team early on, but the scoreboard has yet to reflect that. After seeing a lead slip away against the Sabres that could have been insurmountable, the Bruins would do well to start taking advantage of the chances...

RECAP: Boston Plays Like ******* in Third. Bruins lose.

  Awful game. Absolutely awful game. After dominating the first two periods the Boston Bruins came out into the third period and took a huge John Scott size dump on the ice. Buffalo scores three unanswered goals and win 4-2. Ugh. This loss is worse than the one on Jan 31st. In that game both sides of the ice were an absolute ******** for Boston. Tonight's was just infuriating...

RECAP: Boston Went America All Over Winnipeg's Asses. BRUINS WIN!

  Whoa boy. Another win that was less than pretty. But every two points counts this season, so they don't have to be works of art. Still it'd be nice to see the Bs blow a ****** team out like the Winnipeg Jets once in a while. Bruins did a pretty good job defensively today, keeping the shot count down (24 shots) and the Jets scoring chances to a minimum. Well, that was...

It’s Time To “Pump The Brakes” On The Demise Of Tyler Seguin

Sure, it’s frustrating. Sure, it’s disappointing. Sure, “The Kid” has not come out of the gate gangbusters like we all hoped. But Bruins nation it’s time to “pump the  brakes” on Tyler Seguin’s demise. He is NOT Rob Cimetta or Shayne Stevenson (you may have to Google them if you are younger than 30). Have FAITH in him…. I have developed a “Bromance” with #19...

Third Period Dooms Bruins In 4-2 Loss To Sabres

Anton Khudobin skates away as the Sabres celebrate their third goal of the third period. If you turned the television off after the second period, you missed a lot. Through two periods, it looked as if the Bruins would beat the seemingly disinterested Buffalo Sabres with ease in front of their restless fans for the second time in less than a week. Then came the third, however, and...
