Found April 27, 2013 on NESN.com:
PLAYERS: Milan Lucic
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
The Bruins lost on Saturday, but it’s not the end of the world. In fact, the only thing nearing for Boston is the end of the regular season — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. That’s because, of course, the Bruins are playoff-bound and have been for quite some time. The only concern remaining for the B’s is their playoff seeding, which is a problem, but at the very least, a good one to have. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is staying positive after this loss, and he’s especially optimistic about the play of a couple of Bruins. He’s awarding Milan Lucic our player of the game award.

Who Is the Last Bruin to End a Season With More Penalty Minutes Than Shawn Thornton?

Bruins bruiser Shawn Thornton knows his way around the TD Garden penalty box, but he certainly isn’t the only Bruin who calls the sin bin his home away from home. Because the enforcer missed a handful of games earlier this season, his pugilistic pals had to step up things up in the physicality department and it appears as though ST22 won’t lead the Black and Gold in penalty minutes...

Dennis Seidenberg Catches Defense Out of Position, Rips Wide Open Shot to Score Equalizer (Video)

The Bruins came from behind to tie the game in thrilling fashion on Sunday night against the Senators. The B’s scored two goals with 18 seconds of one another — one with four seconds left in the second period and one in the opening second of the third period — to give them a shot at the win. The Bruins went on to lose 3-2, but head’s up play by Dennis Seidenberg was crucial...

NESN.com staff will pick the two or three best Amica Coverage Plays of the previous week for games played from Friday night to Thursday night. Voting will begin every Friday morning and conclude on Monday.  The Bruins may have dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to the Capitals on Saturday night, but the team’s alert and quick transition play was something to be proud of. Andrew...

Daniel Paille Earns Love of Bruins Fans for Play This Season, Even If NHL Award Not Forthcoming (Video)

Dougie Hamilton may have won the Bruins’ 7th Man Award in the 2013 season, but if Bruins fans on Twitter had their say, it appears that Daniel Paille would be heading into the playoffs with some extra hardware. That’s the sentiment that NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette uncovered on the Internet as the Bruins wrapped up their regular season against the Ottawa Senators on Sunday night...

Milan Lucic and Chris Neil Fight

This is my definition of a heavy weight fight between Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic and Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil. After not being in a fight for 26 games, Lucic has now been in a fight in two out of his last three games. With the fight tonight, Lucic has now accumulated five fighting majors for the season. That is also the sixth fighting major of the year for the...

A Day in the Life of Shawn Thornton

It is no secret that Shawn Thornton is the greatest man who ever lived. He does more in a day than most of us do in a year. Usually we only get to see him in action during games, but recently Shawn Thornton let us follow him around for a day so we could see what a typical day in his life was like.  It was awesome. After the jump.....A Day in the Life of Shawn "...

Bruins Assign Matt Bartkowski to Providence

The Providence Bruins are getting some reinforcement on the blue line, and it comes just in time for the Calder Cup playoffs. The Boston Bruins announced Friday that defenseman Matt Bartkowski has been assigned to Providence. This comes after Bartkowski appeared in 11 games with the big club after being called up earlier in the season. Bartkowski actually looked pretty good during...

Bruins Eager to ‘Turn Page’ on Disappointing End to Regular Season, Embrace Challenge of Playoff Hockey

BOSTON — TD Garden workers, toward the end of a frantic day that saw two games — one basketball and one hockey — at the busy arena, worked tirelessly Sunday night on the Garden ice. There, just an hour after the Bruins wrapped up their regular season, the arena workers put down the giant “Stanley Cup Playoffs” decal on the ice. It serves as a literal and figurative reminder...

Bruins’ Showed Comeback Power Earlier in Year, Scored Two Goals With Goalie Pulled (Video)

The Bruins could have used some of their comeback mojo from earlier in the year in Sunday’s 3-2 loss the Senators. In February the B’s were able to battle a 3-point deficit against the New York Rangers in the third period. They pulled the goalie and were able to score two goals without anyone minding the net behind them. The Bruins’ valiant effort in that matchup is honored...

Bruins’ First-Round Playoff Opponent Still Unknown As Final Game Will Determine Matchups

The Bruins will play hockey on Sunday night at TD Garden against the Ottawa Senators. Where they go from there, though, is still very much up in the air. The B’s-Sens game will be worth a lot more than pride, as the two clubs — as well as Montreal, Toronto, Pittsburgh and the New York Islanders — will all wait for Sunday’s game to see where they’re headed for the first...

Senators-Bruins Preview

The final regular-season game will be a very important one for the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins. While the Bruins will be focused on winning the Northeast Division title Sunday night, the visiting Senators have an opportunity to move up a spot and avoid high-powered Pittsburgh in the first round. The regular season was originally scheduled to end Saturday, but this game was...

Milan Lucic Returns to Form With Fight, Physical Play Against Lightning (Video)

Bruins fans worried about Milan Lucic didn’t have much reason for concern after the forward’s play on Thursday night in Boston. While Lucic did not score, his impact was felt in ways beyond the box score, as he returned to his old physical ways and even was involved in a fight with the Lightning’s Keith Aulie. It was a clear display that Lucic hasn’t lost his edge this...

Milan Lucic Shows Signs of Life While Kick-Starting Bruins’ Return to Physical Style of Hockey

BOSTON — The Bruins, when they’re going well, play a simple, physical style of hockey. This is no secret. The same could be said for B’s power forward Milan Lucic. So one could certainly draw a correlation between Lucic’s lackluster play of late and the Bruins’ struggles, which have been on and off for almost two months now. While not every problem was solved and Lucic...

Bruins Shutout Lighting 2-0

For the first time in a while the Boston Bruins played a very solid game defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0. It was only the Lightning, but based on the Bruins recent play, a solid win is nothing to scoff at. The Bruins saw goals from the German hammer Dennis Siedenberg and from the true 7th man Daniel Paille. Yes, the 7th man award was awarded, and went to Dougie Hamilton. Diehards...
