David Krejci Looks to Continue Domination of Flyers As Bruins Prepare to Begin Stanley Cup Defense Against Philadelphia

BOSTON -- The Bruins' results against the Flyers in recent years have been mixed, to put it mildly. Boston sunk to the lowest of lows against Philadelphia when the Bruins squandered a 3-0 lead in the second round in 2010. And the Bruins soared to new heights with a dominating sweep of the Flyers en route to the Stanley Cup last spring. Through it all, the one constant has been...

Claude Julien Still Not Ready to Name New Alternate Captain to Replace Mark Recchi

BOSTON -- With Mark Recchi retired, the Bruins have an opening for a new alternate captain to join returning captain Zdeno Chara and alternate Patrice Bergeron.

But Bruins coach Claude Julien doesn't appear to be in any rush to finalize the decision, stating after...

Adam McQuaid Misses Second Straight Practice, 'A Possibility' to Play in Opener

BOSTON -- For the second straight day, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was absent from practice Wednesday morning at the Garden. He remains under the weather and his status for Thursday's season opener against Philadelphia is in question. "He's still sick," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "He's batting a flu or bug or virus, so he came in [Wednesday] but...

Will the Bruins Repeat as Stanley Cup Champions This Season?

The Bruins are back to playing meaningful hockey games for the first time in three and a half months on Thursday, although it likely feels like it's been no more than three and a half weeks for players and fans alike. However, once the B's raise their sixth Stanley Cup banner to the TD Garden rafters, it's time to move on. Once the puck is dropped, the Cup celebration...

It seems like Zdeno Chara raised the Cup over his head in Vancouver only last week, but nearly four...
