TEAMS: Boston Bruins
The Bruins finally had their win streak snapped Friday by Detroit, but they still earned a point in the shootout loss and bounced back with an impressive win over Winnipeg on Saturday. Boston has now earned points in every game this month with an 11-0-1 start to November. They close out the month's slate with a huge tilt in Toronto on Wednesday. They then open December by completing a home-and-home series with the Leafs Saturday at the Garden. First place in the Northeast Division will on the line as the Original Six rivals meet in those back-to-back showdowns. So while...

Can The Bruins Afford David Krejci?

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, So aside from a new pair of his customary skates, what makes things different for the Czech Republic center this season? Well, Krejci’s contract is up at the end of the season as a restricted free agent and there hasn’t been a great deal of movement toward a new deal. It’s expected the center will be seeking a payday in the Patrice Bergeron neighborhood...

Ryan Miller Says Injury May Have Been in Neck, Not Concussion, From Milan Lucic Hit

When Ryan Miller was injured after getting hit by a speeding 228-pound Milan Lucic two weeks ago, it wasn't entirely surprising, considering the speed and size Lucic was carrying through the offensive end. It was a bit odd, however, that the initial diagnosis was a concussion, considering Lucic made no contact with Miller's head, which also never hit the ice. Still, it would...

Bruins Don't See Max Pacioretty's Suspension As Inconsistent with Zdeno Chara Ruling Last Year, Support Crackdown on Head Shots

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Considering Max Pacioretty's history with the Bruins, it wasn't a surprise that the Canadiens forward's three-game suspension for a head shot was the subject of many questions in the Boston locker room after Tuesday's practice at Ristuccia Arena. But the Bruins didn't see any relationship between Zdeno Chara's controversial hit on Pacioretty...

Bruins Wary of Maple Leafs Despite Early-Season Blowout Wins As Rivals Clash for Division Lead

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Bruins have beaten the Leafs twice already this year, winning those games by a combined 13-2 count. On their last trip to Toronto, they came away with a resounding 7-0 whitewash of the hosts. Since Claude Julien took over behind the Bruins bench in 2007, Boston is 18-5-5 against their Original Six rivals from Ontario. But those results haven't given the...

David Krejci's numbers are nowhere near where they're expected to be, and he knows that. But the talented Bruins...

Doing it doggy style. BRUINS WIN.

Bruins-Maple Leafs Preview

The Boston Bruins are on their best run in nearly eight years, though their slow start still has them chasing the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Northeast Division. A victory in Toronto on Wednesday night in the opener of this home-and-home set would change that. Boston (14-7-1) has gone 11-0-1 since Nov. 1, earning at least one point in 12 consecutive contests for the first time since...

Bruins prepare for home-and-home series against Toronto

WILMINGTON – Good morning from Ristuccia Arena, where the Bruins have started practice. Andrew Ference is the only player not practicing. The Bruins will play two games this week against Toronto. They will visit the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday....

Sunday Hockey Notes

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, • The Bruins were in back-to-back shootouts, Wednesday (win over Buffalo) and Friday (loss to Detroit). Two excellent games decided by a gimmick. Not to mention a crummy way for a 10-game winning streak to be clipped. One possible tweak to the ridiculous OT/shootout system: Rather than play the extra five-minute session with the sides...

UCLA needs a coach like Chris Petersen

The Bruins have run out of reasons not to get a great football leader and have the means to attract one. Boise State s coach is the one by whom all other candidates should be measured.The Bruins have run out of reasons not to get a great football leader and have the means to attract one.

B’s head to Toronto

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins fly out of Hanscom Field at 1 p.m. today, heading to Toronto for, they hope, their third consecutive win against the Maple Leafs. At stake tomorrow night will be the top spot in the Northeast Division, with the Leafs leading the Bruins by a single point. ...
