Will Tuukka Rask Play His Entire Career With the Bruins?

Tuukka Rask is statistically the best goalie in the NHL right now, but he's not even the No. 1 goalie on his own team. No, that honor would belong to Vezina- and Conn Smythe-winning teammate Tim Thomas, who led the Bruins to a 6-1 win over the Devils on Wednesday night. Rask is expected to get the start Thursday against the Calgary Flames, and he will bring the league's best...

Tim Thomas Rebounds From Shaky Outing, Shows He's Not Ready to Relinquish Top Spot to Tuukka Rask Just Yet

Any thinking that Tim Thomas might be ready to relinquish his hold on the Bruins' No. 1 netminding job would be sadly mistaken. After allowing a season-high four goals in Saturday's 4-2 loss in Dallas, Thomas could have been feeling a little pressure, even though his numbers this season are actually better than his league-leading goals-against average and NHL-record save...

Thomas wins fan vote, will play in fourth All Star Game

2011 was a historic and exciting year for Bruins’ netminder Tim Thomas, a year that saw him collect the Vezina Trophy, the Conn Smythe Trophy, and the Stanley Cup. 2012 has started out just as well for Thomas. Just a day after he saved 30 of 31 shots against the New Jersey Devils en route to his 17th victory of the season, Thomas won the NHL fan ballot and was voted into the All...

Tim Thomas Gets Start in Goal, Brad Marchand a Game-Time Decision Against Vancouver

BOSTON -- At least the Bruins will go with their No. 1 starter in goal. Tim Thomas gets the call against the Canucks on Saturday in the first meeting between the teams since last June's Stanley Cup Final. That announcement came about an hour before the game by Bruins coach Claude Julien and a day after Canucks counterpart Alain Vigneault made the controversial announcement that...

Bruins Stretch the Ice With Crisp Passing, Go Length of Rink to Score First of Many Goals Against Flames

The Bruins scored a ton of goals on Thursday night against the Calgary Flames. Perhaps none were better orchestrated than the first one. The B's scored early and often against a hapless Flames team, but they showed off their end-to-end play with the game's first tally. Tyler Seguin helped the start the play with a beautiful pass out of his own zone to stretch the ice, and...

Bruins devour Devils, Brodeur

Patrice Bergeron scored two goals, and Tim Thomas made 30 saves in the Boston Bruins' 6-1 rout Wednesday night of the host New Jersey Devils. The defending Stanley Cup champions got back on track after their seven-game winning streak was snapped Saturday by Dallas. Boston moved within one point of the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers.

Bruins Avoiding Trap Game Against Flames With Early Surge of Scoring

So much for the trap game on Thursday, right? The Bruins were coming off a game the night before, but showed no signs of it from the get-go, scoring three goals in the first nine minutes of the game against the Calgary Flames. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is wondering if the trap might in fact have been the one the Bruins laid for the Flames. If Calgary was expecting an off night...

Bruins Live Blog: B's Back in Boston in Face Flames in Start of Four-Game Homestand

8 a.m. ET: The Bruins bounced back from Saturday's loss in Dallas with a dominating effort in New Jersey, beating the Devils 6-1 on Wednesday. They won't get much time to enjoy that victory though, as they get right back at it on Thursday when they return to the Garden to begin a four-game homestand against Calgary. The Flames are playing the finale of a seven-game road trip...

Bruins ready for Canucks

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins are well aware that tomorrow's showdown with the Vancouver Canucks isn't just another game on the 82-game schedule. Because of all that occurred in last year's emotional and nasty Stanley Cup final, there's obviously a lot of pride on the line -- especially for the Canucks, ...

This Day In Hockey History (1/7)

As we go down that road of moments, sometimes we stumble on those that are just too obvious to pass up.  Today is one of those times as we look at the Boston Bruins now and then try to see where they are compared to some past teams.  One team that went on a very long streak was the Philadelphia Flyers in 1980 but more recently 1997.  We found a moment from 14 years ago to share...

Marchand still a game-time decision

As of right now, Brad Marchand, who missed Thursday's game with flu-like symptoms, is a game-time decision for today's Stanley cup rematch between the Bruins and Vancouver Canucks. But whether Marchand, considered probable on Friday, is in the lineup or not, ...
