With Chris Kelly, Gregory Campbell Back in Fold, Bruins Confident Keeping Core of Club Together Will Pay Off

The 2012-13 Bruins are going to look an awful lot like the 2011-12 Bruins. That has been made clear with the re-signings of centers Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell this week on the heels of forward Daniel Paille's extension earlier this month. That could also be a concern considering those 2011-12 Bruins were ousted from the playoffs in the opening round. But the 2012-13 Bruins...

Does the Bruins Philosophy Work For You?

The question is a simple one in theory, but the more you think about it, the more complex it becomes: Does the Boston Bruins philosophy work for you? Think about that for a moment.

Erase any emotional and...

Jonathan Quick Sets New Standard for Playoff Goaltending Just One Year After Tim Thomas' Remarkable Run

Tim Thomas' remarkable postseason run in 2011 was thought to be the kind of performance hockey fans are lucky to see once in a generation. Turns out it took just one year to see a netminder perform even better on hockey's biggest stage. That's no knock on Thomas, without whom the Bruins would not have ended their 39-year Cup drought last year. Instead, it's a reflection...

Jonathan Quick, Tim Thomas and Terry Sawchuk Have Turned in Some of the Top Goaltending Performances in Stanley Cup History
