While many Boston Bruins are overseas doing their best to stay busy during the NHL lockout, the Providence Bruins are doing their part at home to continue the organization's tradition of giving back to the community.
Following the example that Zdeno Chara, Adam MacQuaid and Brad Marchand set last year with Jordan Caron, the P-Bruins visited patients at the Boston Children's Hospital on Halloween to enjoy some holiday festivities.
A crew consisting of Caron, Lane MacDermid, Max Sauve, Chris Bourque, Ryan Spooner,
Torey Krug, Jared Knight, David Warsofsky, Matt Bartkowski and Ryan
Button joined in the fun on Wednesday, going door-to-door not in search of candy, but for smiles.
Just as the Red Sox did at Fenway Park during their Halloween celebrations, the Bruins found quite a few.

Bruins players who decided to head overseas may be getting in some quality ice time, but they certainly weren't able to get in some quality trick-or-treating done in Southie, like one pesky winger did this year.
Brad Marchand was spotted dressed as Thor on the streets of South Boston on Wednesday night -- reportedly trick-or-treating with his dog, which was dressed as Superman...
Marc Savard has seen the best and the worst of the NHL, with the latter still dominating his life.
The Bruins center is unlikely to ever play in the NHL again, and he knows that. The ever-present reminder in the forms of post-concussion headaches serve as a not-so-subtle reminder of that.
However, Savard's most recent headaches were felt on Tuesday night, and...
Both Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin's Swiss hockey clubs were in action on Tuesday and both players went home with a loss.
Despite the losing efforts, Bergeron and Seguin continue to thrive in overseas competition. Bergeron turned in a three-point night with a goal and two assists for HC Lugano, while Seguin notched an assist for EHC Biel. Seguin's new...
Boston is a town filled with rich sports history, but one of the most
significant dates is Nov. 1, 1924 -- the day the Boston
Bruins played their first game in franchise history.
Boston, which was the first NHL franchise to open for business
in the United States, beat Montreal Maroons in Boston
2-1 in its first game ever. The first game that an American based...
Just because the big boys in the NHL are locked out and/or playing overseas, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t any good hockey news to report. Take, for instance, the sweethearts of the AHL’s Providence Bruins, the developmental team of the Boston franchise with the same mascot. A number of the team’s players followed in the pro league club’s footsteps by spending their...
The start of the Bruins' playoff series against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2011 followed the same script that it had in 2010 -- with two Boston victories. They looked to continue that trend in Games 3 and 4, with the venue shifting to the TD Garden.
Bruins head coach Claude Julien will join Dale Arnold in the NESN studios on Thursday to discuss Game 3 of the Eastern Conference...

The Bruins blasted the doors off the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of their 2011 Eastern Conference Semifinals. Their next time on the ice, things wouldn't be so easy.
Tim Thomas led the B's back into Philadelphia for Game 2, while each side plotted its own revenge.
For the Flyers, they would look to avenge the loss they had suffered the last time out....
We're too depressed from reading these quotes to do a real intro. They speak for themselves.
From Pro Hockey Talk (emphasis ours):
“For guys like me I have a few years left and I’m kind of caught in the middle and squeezed out on both sides,” he explained. “If this goes on for a year or two then I’m probably done and I have to go back to working...
