Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron seems like he continues to just get better and better, and he’s certainly playing some of his best hockey in a while right now. He was rewarded for that Monday. Bergeron was named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week for his performance this past week. Montreal’s Max Pacioretty, who played a vital role in the Canadiens’ win over the Bruins on Sunday night, was named the First Star. Bergeron had arguably his best game of the season Sunday night against the Habs. The reigning Selke winner had a goal and two assists for the B’s, while winning 68.4 percent of his faceoffs. He’s riding a four-game point streak right now with 2-3-5 totals.

Zdeno Chara Pummels Alexei Emelin While Sticking Up for Tyler Seguin (Video)

BOSTON — Zdeno Chara reminded the hockey world of two things on Sunday night in Boston.

Cam Neely Has ‘Always’ Disliked Embellishment From Any Teams, Calls It ‘Embarrassing’

Speaking on his weekly radio appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub, Neely spoke out against...

Video- A Frustrated Claude Julien

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, “The frustrating thing is that we get 17 minutes into the penalty box when we should have been on the power play. It’s as simple as that,” said Julien. “It’s frustrating because tonight – as everybody saw – there’s a lot of embellishment. This is embarrassing for our game: the embellishing. Right now they’ve got over 100 power plays...

Bruins Showing Cracks in Defensive Armor As Penalty Kill Dominance Begins to Fade (Video)

Bruins Break Down in Third Period Once Again After Getting Too Complacent With Big Lead

The Bruins have been so darn good at putting together comebacks that they already have a handful of “good losses,” whatever that really means.

It may have been the worst Bruins loss of the season given the B’s stranglehold through 20 minutes. The Bruins saw...

They’re Still Here: Gonzaga’s Quirky Success Story

When Adam Morrison fell to the floor in tears after a 2006 Elite Eight loss to UCLA, I knew what he knew – there was no return in order.

Bruins Let Three-Goal Lead Slip Away in ‘D.C. Disaster’ Against Capitals (Video)
