Found December 29, 2011 on Days of Y'Orr:
(This is going to be a short recap. We're working on something else)What an ugly, ugly game. Seriously. Just ugly. But a win is a win. How about them B's? Wasn't it nice of them to tank in October to spot the rest of the league a few points before they came out firing?This game was uglier than that guy/girl you woke up next to last weekend and couldn't remember if you had sex or not. Tuukka Rask quite literally saved the Bruins asses. What a save on that Whitney breakaway. And then of course there was this little exchange: Oh and this:As Bruins fans I think we're all excited for how well they're doing but also cautious. Other teams have been ravaged with injuries but the injury bug hasn't visited the Bruins yet. Perhaps he is afraid of Thornton and McQuaid. Rask and Thomas are the best dynamic duo since Batman and Robin. They're getting contributions up and down the lineup. They have the confidence that they can come back from a three ...

Rask back in for B’s

GLENDALE, Az. -- Tuukka Rask, the Bruins' backup who would be a starter on many NHL teams, seeks his third successive shutout tonight when the B's return to action against the Phoenix Coyotes. Rask had shutouts in his last two games, vs. Los Angeles and Florida, and takes a shutout ...

Bruins’ Adam McQuaid Bloodies Raffi Torres’ Eye During Fight (Video)

Raffi Torres likes to think he’s one of the NHL’s tough guys. He loves getting into fights and taking runs at players — some of which are extremely dirty like this one.  The reason the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup last season and are one of the best teams in the league this year is their toughness.  If you’re going to cheap shot one of the Bruins players, you had better...

Raffi Torres Deserves Suspension for Latest Cheap Shot, Just Don't Expect Him to Learn From It

Adam McQuaid put a beating on Raffi Torres, but not even the powerful right hand of the Bruins defenseman could beat any sense into the reckless Phoenix forward. On Wednesday, Torres delivered a dirty hit to the head of Bruins blueliner Andrew Ference late in the first period of Boston's 2-1 overtime win. Torres was given an elbowing minor on the play, but his real punishment...

Adam McQuaid's Beatdown of Raffi Torres Enjoyable on Multiple Levels For Bruins Fans

When Raffi Torres threw an elbow at Andrew Ference during Wednesday's Bruins-Coyotes game, Adam McQuaid did not take too kindly to it. So he responded by bloodying up Torres, much to the delight of Bruins fans. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers to finish the sentence, "The best part of the McQuaid-Torres fight was _____." See what fans had to...

Thomas, Rask: Pucks stop here

The Boston coach has an embarrassment of riches between the pipes. Thomas will bring a 16-5-0 record, a 1.84 goals-against average, and a .943 save percentage into tonight’s game against Dallas. Tuukka Rask, who’ll be opening doors and serving as Thomas’s backup, will let his 8-4-1 record, 1.61 GAA, and .945 save percentage cool on the bench.

Tuukka Rask Will Enjoy 'Desert Dessert' of Bruins Overtime Win in Phoenix to Validate Stellar Effort

The Bruins' win on Wednesday night was not pretty, but it will count in the standings just the same. After an early David Krejci goal put the B's on top, it appeared that the Bruins would have an easy time of things out in the desert against the Coyotes. Things didn't work out that way. Just about 60 minutes later, Dennis Seidenberg (or Chris Kelly, depending on what...

Bruins Protect Net Better Than Any Team in NHL Thanks to Tim Thomas, Tuukka Rask

The Bruins are cruising and it's mostly thanks to their two-headed monster between the pipes. The B's have allowed a league-best 62 goals-against this season, seven fewer than the second-place Rangers. Not too shabby. Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas are among the league leaders when it comes to keeping the biscuit out of the basket this season. Rask is first in save percentage...

Video- Raffi Torres With The ‘Offensive’ Elbow

Do you agree with the penalties? Phoenix Raffi Torres: 2 minutes, elbowing Phoenix Raffi Torres: 5 minutes, fighting Boston Adam Mcquaid: 2 minutes, instigator Boston Adam Mcquaid: 5 minutes, fighting Boston Adam Mcquaid: 10 minutes, misconduct  

Should Raffi Torres Be Disciplined for His High Hit on Andrew Ference?

Sure, Adam McQuaid made Coyotes forward Raffi Torres pay for his actions by dismantling his face on Wednesday night, but should Brendan Shanahan and the NHL step in and discipline Torres for his high hit on Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference? Judging by photo and video evidence, it's clear Torres gives up on his pursuit of the puck to attack the head of Ference with his shoulder...

Raffi Torres Takes Out Jan Hejda With Second Head Shot in As Many Nights (Video)

Apparently Raffi Torres didn't learn his lesson. Just one night after Adam McQuaid turned him into a bloody mess after he took out Andrew Ference with a high elbow, Torres landed his second cheap, high hit against the Avalanche when he took out Jan Hejda. Hejda, who was falling to the ice after dishing out a long pass in his zone, took Torres' elbow right to the temple, as...

Adam McQuaid Bloodies Raffi Torres After Coming to Defense of Andrew Ference

Adam McQuaid is no stranger to coming to the defense of his teammates. But his beatdown on Wednesday night was one of the Bruins defenseman's more impressive victories. Coyotes forward Raffi Torres delivered a questionable shoulder/elbow to Andrew Ference's chin as the two raced for the puck in the Boston zone. In typical Bruins fashion, McQuaid came to Ference's defense...

Video- Raffi Torres Questionable Hit On Jan Hejda

No penalty on the play and I am not really sure why Hejda started going down before the hit.  Did he see Torres coming or was it just a fall?

View From The Sin Bin: Boston Bruins: Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’

Sin Bin's view after Tim Marchand's hat trick, 12/23TheBoston Bruins continue their domination of the NHL with an 8-0 shellacking ofthe Florida Panthers. The win was the B’s sixth in a row. 20-2-1 since November1. Not much to say but…wow. Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask are both at the top oftheir games. The offense is firing on all cylinders. Even the power play looksstrong...

Avs’ Jones activated, should play tonight for Jiggy homecoming game; no suspension for Torres

ANAHEIM – Matt Duchene is out, but David Jones is back in. That’s the word I’m hearing, even though the Avs did not have a morning skate today here in sunny Southern California. Jones, out the last couple weeks with a groin pull, has been activated by the team and should be in the lineup for the New Year’s Eve tilt with the reeling but still dangerous Ducks. By the way, Jan...
