While one Bruins legend turned 95 last week, we look back on the life of another one this week. Also featured, are a double-digit winning streak, milestone victories for a pair of legendary coaches (including also the final win for one of them) and a pair of lasts against two of the teams from the early years of the league. This is This Week In Boston Bruins History.
On March 10, 1929, the Bruins beat the Rangers, 3-2, to begin a nine-game winning streak. The ninth game? The Stanley Cup clincher against those same Rangers in New York.
On March 10, 1942, legendary coach, Art Ross, won his 300th game as coach of the Bruins in convincing fashion as the team scored a season-high nine goals in a 9-1 win over the Black Hawks. The B’s finished 25-17-6 that year. Ross would spend three more seasons behind the Boston bench and accumulated an overall record of 361-277-90 as well as winning the 1939 Stanley Cup.
On March 10, 1971, the Bruins won their eighth consecutive game, 8-1, o...

AROUND THE WEB
Shawn Thornton was a key figure in the Bruins’ win over the Senators on Monday night, which means he was a pretty popular man after the game as well.
The Bruins forward not only spoke to the media following the game, but he also made an appearance on NHL Network. Thornton was asked about the game, the club’s dominance of Ontario teams and he even worked in some conversation about...
A FOR EFFORT
Kaspars Daugavins got pretty creative with his shootout attempt against the Boston Bruins. The Ottawa forward's attempt got the crowd buzzing prior to the whistle even being blown as it became apparent that he would be trekking the puck down the ice with the toe of his stick. His move culminated in a beautiful spin-o-rama, all without touching the puck with his stick'...
The shortened NHL season, with its quick start and jam-packed schedule, was supposed to mean a plethora of injuries across the league. While some teams like the Senators have fallen in line with that, the Bruins have been one of the luckier clubs when it comes to medical issues this season.
The B’s entered Monday’s game in Ottawa having missed just seven man games as team this...
News prior to puck drop: Chris Kelly, who sustained an undisclosed injury last night in Ottawa will not be playing tonight. The third line should look like this: Jordan Caron on the right , Rich Peverely at center and Jay Pandolfo on the left.
Coach on Chris Kelly: "No news. He's here with us...there's some swelling obviously so it's hard to say where he'...

It had been two years, nine months, and 23 days since Tuukka Rask last squared off with the Philadelphia Flyers. 1,030 days ago to be exact, but hey who was counting?
Seemingly haunted by the second round collapsed thatâs been the headline of his still young NHL career, thereâs no doubt that speculation came with Raskâs perceived âhidingâ from the Flyers...
Shootouts are an NHL gimmick so if you're pissed at what Kaspar Daugavins did last night than, well, we don't know what to tell you. Here's his crazy move.
It's a high risk, high reward maneuver. He nails it and Ottawa is singing songs of his grandeur. He fails and he looks like a giant chump who wasted a chance to win a game for his team. Thank god...
David Krejci scored the shootout winner and had an assist in regulation as the Boston Bruins defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Monday night.
Tuuka Rask made 30 saves in regulation and stopped three of four Senators in the shootout, including a bizarre attempt from Kaspars Daugavins. The Ottawa forward carried the puck by pressing down with the tip of his stick before attempting...

Game II in the five-game Boston-Ottawa series wasn't dissimilar to the first installment: the Bruins emerged victorious, but needed extra-time in order to best their divisional rival.
David Krejci scored the game-winner in the skills competition after an absolutely hilarious spin-o-rama attempt by Kaspars Daugavins was stopped by...
Man, that banner is like a sleek Accelerator jersey. Black on black baby.
Bruins come into Pittsburgh on a three game winning streak after a shootout win against the Senators where Boston comes back from 2 down. It was a tough game for Boston, which doesn't bode well for their legs against the Pens. The only thing that helps Boston is that Malkin is back in Russia...
Having rebounded from a brief lull, the Boston Bruins will try to add to their momentum by continuing their recent dominance over the injury-plagued Ottawa Senators.
The Bruins seek a 10th straight victory in Ottawa and an 11th in 12 overall meetings Monday night while trying to end the Senators' five-game home win streak.
Boston dropped back-to-back games for only the second...
The Penguins host the Boston Bruins tomorrow night so we asked the fantastic Bruins blog Days of Y’Orr a few questions about the B’s. This is Getting Old: The Bruins are off to a great start. Stanley Cup or bust? Days of Y’Orr: I would say Stanley Cup Finals or bust. If they lose to…
