The Penguins and Bruins, who were separated by just 3 points at the top of the Eastern Conference coming into tonight, met at the Consol Energy Center in what was supposed to be an epic clash of two of the league’s best. Unfortunately for the Penguins they were never really able to get to their game and when they did, Tim Thomas was there to slam the door on them.
The Bruins looked like the better team for roughly two periods, though the Penguins had the edge in shots and hits. The Penguins owned the third period, but were only able to get one puck by Thomas who made 22 stops in the stanza.
To a man, the Penguins were disappointed that they didn’t make Thomas’ life a bit more difficult, especially on two 2-man-advantages that they had against the B’s during the second period that totaled 3:10.

Tim Thomas looks like someone who was on the Titanic.

If anything, it gives the Pens a good measuring stick of where they need to be, and that measuring stick is the one your grandmother used to spank your ass when she caught you taking that long shower that one time.
This game was crazy. Right from the drop of the puck both teams were in each other's mouths. Thomas and Fleury slugged it out in net before the Bruins broke things open. Crosby and Bergeron gave the opposition plenty of love taps away from the play. Bodies were battered. Tons of scoring chances at both ends.There was a ton of hype going into this game and for once it wasn'...

For years, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin battled each other in a tense rivalry as the league's two best forwards. They entered the NHL in the same year and have been linked ever since. But Ovechkin isn't playing at the same level he used to, and Crosby doesn't appear to have a legitimate rival anymore to measure himself against and challenge him for the claim as the...
There's a lot of reasons for the Bruins' recent tear, so to pinpoint exactly why they've been so hot is difficult. Two reasons that are obvious, though, is the B's depth and their ability to keep the opposing team's best players in check. The Bruins are rolling out four solid lines this season, just as they did during their Stanley Cup run, and their defensive...
