Loui Eriksson had some fans in Boston before he even stepped onto the ice. In the blockbuster trade that sent Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to the Stars, the Bruins gained a handful of prospects and the highly-touted, but mostly unknown, Eriksson. His play wasn’t unknown to former Bruin and current team scout for Europe, P.J. Axelsson, however. When the deal was finalized, Axelsson texted a few of his former teammates to show his support and approval of his fellow Swede’s acquisition, according to ESPNBoston’s, Joe McDonald. The former B’s forward also reached out to Eriksson to prep him for what it will be like to play at the TD Garden, and for Boston, in general. “He said he loved to play here and it’s a great town to play for. He said a lot of good things about Boston,” Eriksson said. After spending his entire 11-year NHL career with the Bruins, Axelsson has become Eriksson’s go-to guy for everything Boston. “For sure it helps a lot because you can ask him different questions; w...

Iginla, Eriksson make presence felt early in camp

Day One is in the books for the 2013-14 Boston Bruins and the new faces have passed their first Black and Gold initiation test. It didn’t involve a pop quiz about the dearly departed Pooh Bear jerseys or Claude Julien’s favorite brand of coffee. It was the easiest one of course. It involved 300 meter shuttle runs and conditioning tests on an exercise bike and then convincing...

Jarome Iginla Says Stop Off in Pittsburgh Was Valuable in Learning to Adapt to New Teammates With Bruins (Video)

Jarome Iginla spent his first 15 seasons in the NHL with one team. Now, suddenly he’s wearing his third different sweater in just six months. The former Flame said his stop off in Pittsburgh was valuable in learning to adapt to new teammates. He’s carrying that knowledge with him to Boston, where he’ll have to learn some new faces. Iginla also said having a whole training camp...

Boston Bruins will win the Atlantic Division

Winning divisional titles is a common trend in Boston Bruins franchise history. In the past five seasons, the Bruins have been divisional champions three times (2008-09, 2010-11, 2011-12). The realignment of the NHL to Atlantic, Central, Metropolitan, and Pacific has forced more compacted and difficult divisions. Previously, there were six divisions holding five teams. Now, with...

Bruins ‘experimenting’ with Chara in front of the net on power play

He’s big. Huge actually. So it would seem to make sense that Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara would be placed in front of the opposition’s net during the power play. At 6’9″ and 255 pounds he not only provides a massive screen for opposing goalies but would prove difficult – perhaps impossible at times – for defenders to try and get him out of the way. “We’re tinkering...

Does Iginla Have Enough Left in The Tank?

We all know the story, the Bruins thought they had Jarome Iginla at the trade deadline, but then were informed hours later that Jarome opted to go to the then surging Pittsburgh Penguins...and we all know what happened from there. The Bruins went on to trade for old man Jaromir Jagr and make perhaps the most memorable run for a cup, coming from behind down 4-1 with 10 minutes to...

Bergeron Update

         Patrice Bergeron is the heart of the Bruins team, and everything, (and I mean everything, hockey, work, breakfast, whatever) is better when Bergeron is healthy. The problem over the summer was, Bergeron wasn't healthy - breakfast didn't taste quite as sweet. But now, as summer comes to a close, the news is getting better and better.     The twenty-eight year...

Bruins see comparisons between Iginla, Horton

The comparisons between Nathan Horton and Jarome Iginla were inevitable. Horton's decision to spurn the Boston Bruins' advances and leave for the Columbus Blue Jackets during the offseason left the Bruins without a power forward to combine with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. For three years including the Stanley Cup championship season of 2011 Krejci Lucic and Horton were...
