Believe it or not, they were still playing hockey this time of year in the ’30s and in one particular year, the Bruins were enjoying a run to a championship. Also featured in this week’s turning back of time are the final games for a number of coaches, including Claude Julien‘s predecessor, a record-setting loss, a double-digit playoff win streak, one now-enemy’s glorious final game and, of course, a multitude of playoff defeats at the hands of the Canadiens. This is This Week In Boston Bruins History: April 7-13.
On April 7, 1984, the Bruins lost, 5-0, to the Canadiens in Game 3 of their first-round series to be swept, three-games-to-none.
On April 7, 1995, they acquired veteran goaltender, Craig Billington, from the Senators in exchange for a ’95 eighth-round pick that turned out to be Ray Schultz.
On April 7, 2001, Mike Keenan coached his final game in a 4-2 loss against the Islanders.
On April 7, 2007, Dave Lewis coached his final game for the Bruins – a 6-3 loss to...

Kaspars Daugavins was no stranger to the Bruins and their fans when the forward was claimed off of waivers from the Senators.
Not only had Daugavins played against the Bruins with Ottawa, but he gained notoriety around the league for his gutsy shootout attempt against the B’s last month.
He was back at it again Monday morning at morning skate in advance of the team’s game with...
Kirk Luedeke Of The Red Line Report tweets that Carl Soderberg is shipping his way up to the Boston Bruins. The 27 year year Swedish center has reached a 3 year deal with the Bruins.
Done deal- Soderberg to Bruins happening & expect him in next 7 days (give or take) Appreciate all the new follows…
— Kirk Luedeke (@kluedeke29) April 9, 2013
Let’s hope he gets out of Sweden...
Claude Julien finds himself once again taking heat from fans and media. Why? Because in an awful effort against the Canadiens Claude dropped Jagr to a line with Campbell and Thornton, moved Seguin back to winger, and for some reason kept the Lucic-Krejci-Horton line perfectly in tact.
Fans are mad becuase the Bruins arn't showing the effort they have in past years. And Julien...
Bruins defenseman Wade Redden led the NHL back in 2005-06 with a plus-minus rating of plus-35 that season with Ottawa. Redden was tied with Michal Rozsival of the New York Rangers for the league lead.
The plus-35 rating still stands as the best of Redden’s career. His best mark since has been a plus-11 back in 2007-08.
The Boston Bruins are no strangers to winning the plus-minus...
After acquiring some additional depth players to help them in their quest for another Stanley Cup, the Bruins are reportedly close to landing another. Sources indicate that the team is close to signing Carl Soderberg, the Swedish center whose rights were acquired by Boston in the Hannu Toivenen trade to St. Louis back in 2007.
The Bruins have publicly stated that they’re hopeful...
The Boston Bruins announced today that they had signed forward Seth Griffith to a three-year entry-level contract. As a member of the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, Griffith has skated in 54 games this year, registering 33 goals and 48 assists with a +18 rating.

The Bruins had some special guests at Monday night’s game against the Hurricanes.
Doctors and patients from Children’s Hospital Boston’s Brain Injury Center got to see Boston knock off Carolina 6-2, and some of them hung out with NESN’s Dale Arnold before the game and at intermission to talk about the Brain Injury Center’s mission. Dr. Mark Proctor spoke about what needs...
New linemates Gregory Campbell and Brad Marchand celebrate Marchand’s first goal of the game in the first period.
Looking at the box score, it would appear that the Bruins dominated the Carolina Hurricanes, but the 5-2 victory was a lot more hard-earned than it appeared. If it weren’t for the stellar early play of Tuukka Rask, the team’s two early goals in the first period...
When you can’t get a SINGLE shot off during a two-man advantage in the final minute of a one goal game, there isn’t much to talk about without PUKING. However, MANGLED HAB, makes every Bruins fan happy especially when he was the aggressor.
Alexei Emelin of the Canadiens “tried” to run Milan Lucic and he is going to lose that battle 10 out of 10 times…..and he did just that...
There weren't many highlights in the Bruins-Habs game, but Alexei Emelin taking a run at Milan Lucic was one of them.
Pro Tip: If you see Milan Lucic barreling his way down the ice at top speed the worst thing you can do is throw your body in front of it.
Emelin earned himself a sweet torn knee ligament and is out for the year. Emelin was the dude who...
The Boston Bruins announced today that they have signed prospect Carl Soderberg to a 3-year entry level deal. Soderberg, who was drafted 49th overall by St. Louis in 2004, was traded to the Bruins in exchange for Hannu Toivonen in 2007. Soderberg has been playing in the Swiss Elite League, where he has amassed career [...]
BOSTON– Monday night’s win over the Carolina Hurricanes might have looked good for the Bruins on paper, but as is often the case, the final score may have been a little misleading. Sure the B’s rolled to a 6-2 win over a hapless opponent, but this was not the dominant effort the score might suggest.
The B’s did plenty of good things, but they’re far from out of the woods...
On the heels of a listless loss in Montreal, there was no doubt that changes were coming to a Boston forward core simply devastated by the loss of Patrice Bergeron.
Focusing their changes on the middle of the aching forward core, headlined by the return of two-way center Chris Kelly from a fractured tibia and coach Claude Julien's swapping of Gregory Campbell (up to the second...
It's a good things I was distracted Saturday night by the awesome time had at the Days of Y'Orr/Boston Sports Then and Now/Bruins Daily Viewing Party because if I was home I'd have to write some of sort recap while I was *********. Usually they come out awesome, but I'm pretty sure that if I wrote it while drinking the creature my laptop would have been thrown...
