Found July 02, 2012 on NESN.com:
Shawn Thornton certainly isn't doing any acting when he's getting in fights on the ice or driving opponents hard in to the boards. However, those same skills may well have come in handy as Thornton showed his skills as a thespian, performing a cameo in Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane's first feature film. Ted is the story of a veritable grown-up Pinocchio, a teddy bear who comes to life decades down the road. Given some of the R-rated hijinks of the movie -- which takes place in and around Boston -- the role was probably perfect for Thornton, who got...

MILF Hunter Tyler Seguin Ran Into Porn Star Tyler Faith Last Night

After the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011, young star Tyler Seguin quickly became a mainstay on the party scene. Looks like this Beantown bro hasn’t slowed down rolling into this off-season. Seguin last night just happened to run into porn slut Tyler Faith. Tyler and Tyler, a match made in heaven…except for the fact Seguin was 10 when Tyler Faith (on his left shoulder) first...

Dougie Hamilton, Jared Knight Must Be Mentally Prepared to Join Bruins Roster (Video)

Dougie Hamilton has instilled a new level of excitement in Bruins fans, as they await his arrival at the pro club sometime this year. Petere Chiarelli discussed Hamilton, Jared Knight and some of the other youngsters chances at making the roster come training camp and what the players must do after developmental camp to really improve their chances. Check out the video above to see...

Dougie Hamilton, Malcolm Subban Looking Forward to Applying Lessons Learned in Bruins Development Camp

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Summer school is over, but the real education is just beginning. The Bruins wrapped up their sixth annual development camp Monday at Ristuccia Arena, closing the five-day camp with more power-skating drills in the morning followed by a final scrimmage. The White team prevailed 4-2 in that one to sweep the scrimmages that closed out the final two days of the camp...

Benoit Pouliot, Joe Corvo, Greg Zanon Find New Homes in Free Agency

While the Bruins didn't make any additions on the first day of free agency and are not actively looking to make any moves, three players did officially become former Bruins on Sunday. Forward Benoit Pouliot and defenseman Joe Corvo are both headed to the Southeast Division on one-year deals, with Pouliot signing with Tampa Bay and Corvo returning to Carolina. Fellow blueliner...

Peter Chiarelli Expects Quiet Bruins Offseason as GM Tries to Keep Team Together (Video)

Just a year ago the Bruins were touting the Stanley Cup, the culmination of an incredible run through the playoffs. A bit removed from that success, the Bruins want to keep that same core in tact and believe that it will continue to have success moving forward. At least that's the official story from general manager Peter Chiarelli, who sees players like Tukka Rask and Tuukka...

Ty Anderson: The First 48: B's quiet, but could veteran help be on tap?

Despite premature cries regarding the need for a 'sniper' in the Hub, nobody expected the Boston Bruins to do much when it came to the first 48 hours of NHL free agency. But on the heels of a Friday conference with B's GM Peter Chiarelli confirming that the Bruins would be quiet when the clock struck noon on July 1st, the weekend didn't end without a few potential...

Statistical Profile: Greg Zanon

Greg Zanon was the Avs second* move in the 2012 free agency day, but he's going to be the first guy I profile. (*Matt Carkner excepted)Let's start with some basics and work our way into the advanced stuff. Zanon's a difficult one to profile, since he was on two teams, sites like Behindthenet.ca  don't do as well with players who played for 2 teams. Zanon's career...

Happy Free Agent Day!

Today marks the free agent signing frenzy. Here's what we expect from the Peter Chiarelli and the Boston Bruins today:At most, a depth guy you never heard of (at most). Don't expect a big splash from Chia, not with a limited cap which currently stands at a tiny $277,857. Any signing would need a trade or two to make room before the season starts.Edit: We forgot about Savard...

Avalanche sign a defenseman after all, opt for Greg Zanon

This year’s Frantisek Kaberle for the Boston Bruins has found a new home, per the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch (let’s cross our fingers and hope the Avs don’t redact this one): Greg Zanon has signed with Avalanche

New England Patriots Superfan Mark Wahlberg's Wife Bans Super Bowl in His House

This is a big weekend for Mark Wahlberg. Boston's favorite rapper-turned-actor stars in the movie Ted about a man whose best friend is his crude, boisterous teddy bear come to life. The movie opened to a record-setting debut where it took in the most an original R-rated comedy has ever grossed in an opening weekend. While promoting the movie, Wahlberg explained why his reaction...

Mark Wahlberg says his wife banned him from watching the Super Bowl at home

The past four years or so have been quite frustrating for Patriots fans. While they certainly don’t deserve any sympathy after all the success their team had in the early part of the 21st century, it has to sting losing to the Giants in the Super Bowl twice in four years. Diehard New England fan Mark Wahlberg understands just how painful it has been, and he has even gotten into...

Ted breaks a box office record in its opening weekend

Watching Mark Wahlberg talk to a stuffed animal is worth the price of admission. Sometimes it makes me upset that I'm so poor because I don't get to do things other people do, like go to the movies. Ted has come out recently and in its first weekend at the box office it broke the record of highest-grossing opening for a non-sequel, R-rated comedy (I'm not sure why...
