Benoit Pouliot's Ever-Improving Game Should Lessen Blow of Losing Brad Marchand

It seems like just yesterday Benoit Pouliot was often wondering whether he'd find himself in head coach Claude Julien's lineup on any given night. Now, he's being relied on to fill the void left by winger Brad Marchand on Boston's second line. If what we've seen of late is any indication, the Bruins should manage just fine. With Marchand receiving a five-game...

Brad Marchand joins twitter, wants you to buy his crappy shirt

A few days ago Brad Marchand wrote this in his ESPN Boston journal/diary/blog:Then late last night we see these tweets from Kampfer and Seguin:So by saying "I'm never getting twitter" he meant "Imma getting it Thursday." The kid got thousands of follwers instantly and he hadn't made a single tweet. It was the Charlie Sheen effect all over again. "...

Shanny throws the book at Brad Marchand

So I wonder if there are still any conspiracy theorists out there that think that the Boston Bruins get all of the breaks because Colin Campbell's son Greg Campbell plays for the Boston Bruins. I think we can say that ship has sailed. This suspension should quite down those people who wrongly feel this way. We all knew that the NHL was going to suspend Brad Marchand, however...

39. Winnipeg Thrashers, err, Jets at Boston Bruins - Marchandless Game 1 of 5

I swear, I won't talk about Marchand. I'm not going to do it, it's been talked about to death and I don't feel like grabbing my baseball bat and beating that dead horse. Nope. Throw all the honey badgers you want at me, I'm still not going to talk about it. I'm not going to talk about his low-bridge hit on Sami Salo. I'm not going to talk about his 5...

Ty Anderson: Live-Blog: B's and Jets tied 1-1 after one

(Welcome to the TD Garden for tonight's game between the Boston Bruins and visiting Winnipeg Jets.) Free Brad Marchand, the fans cry. But that won't change the status of the 23-year-old agitator. Beginning tonight, Boston's speedy two-way threat will sit out the first of five games by way of a suspension that was handed down to him from NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan...

Bs down Jets 5-3, to the surprise of (hopefully) nobody

Before the puck even dropped at TD Banknorth Garden, things weren’t looking good for the Winnipeg Jets. They barely managed to beat a complacent Buffalo Sabres squad over the weekend in a 2-1 snoozefest and were trounced by both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens the week before. And on Tuesday night they were facing the ridiculous might that is the Boston Bruins -...
