Jaromir Jagr‘s Hall of Fame career will now include a stop in Boston, but the record will show that the tour of duty with the Bruins was a brief one.
Jagr will not be returning to the Bruins next season, both he and general manager Peter Chiarelli revealed at the club’s break-up day Wednesday at TD Garden. According to Chiarelli, he broke the news to Jagr on Wednesday morning.
The Bruins acquired the future Hall of Famer on the day of the NHL trade deadline, and he played a couple of months with the Bruins, his sixth NHL club. Jagr ended up playing 33 games with the Bruins including the playoffs, and he scored just two goals to go along with 17 assists.

CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty reported Wednesday morning that it was unlikely that the Bruins would re-sign unrestricted free agent defenseman and alternate captain Andrew Ference.
The news doesn’t come as a huge shock considering the fact that the Bruins have several young defensemen waiting in the wings, including Matt Bartkowski, Dougie Hamilton, and Torey Krug.
With the NHL lowering...
It’s safe to say that the Bruins were able to stay afloat without Tim Thomas this year. It’s also safe to say that they found the right man for the job and that the only thing left to put ink to paper and make it official.
Tuukka Rask stepped into the B’s No. 1 slot this season, filling Boston’s crease after years of Thomas keeping the TD Garden twine free of rubber. Rask...

With the way the salary cap works in the NHL combined with the fact that the Boston Bruins young defensive core is starting to get minutes at the big boy club combined with the fact that he really didn’t play all that well, Andrew Ference doesn’t expect to be back in a Boston Bruins sweater in 2013-14.
On one hand, its sad because Ference became so much a part of the community...
Not only is UCLA the national champion, the Bruins also serve as a model for how to build a winner in this new era of college baseball.
The Bruins ended the year with nary a .300 hitter, but, boy, could they pitch and play defense.
''We play a lot of tight games,'' star closer David Berg said. ''We aren't explosive offensively, but we win a lot of games...
The lasting visual -- as it typically is when the Stanley Cup Final comes to an end -- will be of Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews taking the famed trophy from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.
For the Boston Bruins, it'll be a series of images, a B-roll of nightmares where a one-goal lead turned into 3-2 defeat in a matter of 17 seconds in the closing moments of Game...
An ending to the Stanley Cup Final like that deserves two holy *****. The Chicago Blackhawks just hoisted Lord Stanley’s Cup for the 2nd time in 4 years and did so in unbelievably dramatic fashion.

The exciting last-minute win gave the Blackhawks the chance to raise the Stanley cup in triumph for the second time in four years. The Bruins did manage to get off to an aggressive...
What a CRUSHING way to end the season. Minutes away from a game seven. B's took their foot off the gas. You can't do that against Chicago. That's why they were the best team all season.
We almost didn't get to see a season at all. Instead we were treated to one of the best Finals we saw in our lifetime, despite the disappointing ending.
Some people are blaming...
