The Bruins have been down this road before, and they’re going to tread carefully.
Patrice Bergeron has been working out and skating since his March 31 concussion, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be back on the ice in the next game or two, coach Claude Julien said Friday.
“Bergy will travel with us,” Julien said of the team’s trip to North Carolina this weekend. “He’s skating now, and he’s skating with us, and he’s better off to work out with us than to stay behind.”
But Julien wasn’t optimistic that Bergeron, who has had four concussions in his career, would be in game action in the near future.
“I don’t think so,” he said when asked if Bergeron would be available Saturday. “We’re certainly going to be cautious with him. He’s had a history of [concussions], and we’re not going to take a gamble with it.”
Bergeron was hurt March 31 against Ottawa with what was called a “mild” concussion.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Bruins played their final back-to-back of the season Thursday against the Islanders, and the team looked more than happy to be done with that facet of its schedule upon the game’s conclusion.
Boston coach Claude Julien discussed the team’s 2-1 loss to the Islanders with NESN’s Naoko Funayama after the game. He admitted that the B’s had “ran out of gas,” but he didn’t...
The Boston Bruins were busy Thursday preparing for Military Appreciation Night, which took place during the team’s game against the Islanders.
Nathan Horton, Tuukka Rask and David Krejci took the time to install a POW/MIA seat in section 303 in TD Garden’s balcony. Then, the Bruins posted a photo of Horton’s camo warm-up uniform. Horton donated $5,000 worth of tickets...
Playing “good news, bad news” usually entails a little bit of each one. Unfortunately for the Bruins, it’s been more of the latter in recent days.
With Brad Marchand sidelined after suffering a concussion and Patrice Bergeron already out of the lineup with one of his own, the Bruins are certainly looking for some good news. Hopefully, they can find that against the Islanders...
Carl Soderberg is finally going to come to Boston, it seems.
According to Elliotte Friedman, the Swedish forward has been approved to join the Bruins, ending a standoff between Soderberg and the Swedish hockey federation.

The Bruins couldn’t come away with a win against the Hurricanes on Saturday night, and poor special teams play was part of the problem. The ‘Canes scored their game-winner on a power play toward the end of the game, and the Bruins failed to capitalize on their opportunities in front of the net.
The loss to a struggling Carolina team makes it harder to make a case for the Bruins...
Seriously. The Hockey Yeti is officially a Boston Bruin. It's on the Bruins website and everything now:
“We are fortunate to get a player like Carl at this stage of the season. I would like to thank the President of the Linkoping hockey club, Mike Helber and their GM, Johan Hemlin, in playing a significant part in allowing Carl to play for the Boston Bruins. Carl...

Just when the Bruins thought they were going to add one final piece to their forward corps, Sweden decided to object.
Just days after Carl Soderberg signed a three year, $2.6M contract with the Bruins and secured his release from his Swedish team, Linkoping HC, the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation chose to block the move.
The Bruins first...
BOSTON — The Bruins were up against it Thursday night against the New York Islanders. The B’s were playing their second game in as many nights and their third game in four nights to begin the week. Yet for the first 20 minutes it looked like the B’s seemed ready to take on that challenge and perhaps conquer it.
However, with less than a minute to play in the first, Josh Bailey...
After tonight's tilt there will be 8 games left in the regular season. ******* crazy isn't it? It felt like yesterday that the NHL regular season was kicking off. And man, now we get to look forward to some playoff hockey in about two weeks.
Or if we look at the past few games, the displeasure of looking forward to some playoff hockey.

Photo: CHARLES KRUPA BOSTON— The Bruins took to the ice Thursday hoping to grab their third win in a row and their second in four days on home ice. Standing in the way of that goal were the New York Islanders , who came into last night’s tough, grinding tilt having won two games in a row against the always-tough Tampa Bay Lighting and Philadelphia Flyers, both by 4-1 margins...
