Found March 23, 2013 on
The Bruins’ loss Saturday night to the Maple Leafs was a tough pill to swallow. The B’s put forth a solid effort, but weren’t able to capitalize on their opportunities in front of the net. On top of their offensive woes, the Bruins got caught on their heels in transition, which opened up another can of worms. In the video above, Bruins center Rich Peverley thinks his teammates have control of the puck on the offensive end and proceeds to attempt to get off the ice, presumably for a bit of rest. The Bruins end up losing the puck and are caught in a 2-on-1 on defense, with Dennis Seidenberg taking on Clark Macarthur and Jean-Michel Liles. The end result is a Maple Leafs goal scored by Nazem Kadri. The Bruins have a chance to redeem themselves Monday against the Maple Leafs at home, but they’re going to need better communication than this. Check out the play in the video above.

Bruins In Need of a Trade

So the NHL season is more than half over, and the Bruins sit near the top of the Eastern Conference yet again. The B's have played some of the most solid and complete hockey of any team in the NHL this year, resulting in 43 points through 29 games played. Yet it can be argued that something is missing from this team. Do they have a sniper that can bury the puck consistently as...

Bruins-Maple Leafs Life: New-Look B’s Try to Turn Things Around Against Toronto

10 a.m. ET: The Bruins have won just once in their last four games, and they have scored just six goals over that stretch. Apparently that’s enough for Claude Julien to make some changes.

Bruins Find ‘Tough Luck in Toronto’ for First Time in Years As Long Road Trip Comes to Close With Loss (Video)

Eventually, the Maple Leafs were going to beat the Bruins again. The manner in which it came Saturday didn’t make it any easier. Boston out-shot Toronto by a wide margin, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the three-goal deficit they found themselves in early on in the third period. Anton Khudobin was pulled for Tuukka Rask, but the damage was done and the B’s couldn’t get...
