The Bruins wouldn’t be where they are today without the help of Torey Krug, but that’s hard for some to believe based on his play over the last week or so.
The youngster from Michigan got a shot when a trio of B’s defensemen went down with injury earlier this postseason and he not only fit right in, he dominated, sniping four goals passed one of the game’s best netminders in Henrik Lundqvist during the B’s 4-1 series victory. But Krug was just as solid in his own zone and his balanced play earned him the right to suit up in every game since.
After the impressive Rangers series, Krug was dealt some tough matchups against the Penguins, and it seemed a bit of his “beginner’s luck,” so to speak, was wearing thin.
Then, in Game 1 against the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final, he made a costly mistake that led to Chicago’s second that cut the B’s lead to just one goal. A turnover described as “terrible” by goalie Tuukka Rask, Krug flipped a soft pass toward center ice from his own zone tha

Boston Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr was asked who his favorite players growing up was, and he gave a pretty funny response.
There were probably plenty of heavy eyelids in Boston Thursday, as Bruins’ fans were up late watching the Chicag…
Going into Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins coaching staff will be faced with a decision that they probably never envisioned having to make – to bench rookie defenseman Torey Krug, or not to bench rookie defenseman Torey Krug?

Bruins rookie Torey Krug spent the majority of the regular season playing for the Providence Bruins, Boston’s AHL affiliate, despite a one game appearance with Boston after being called up on an emergency basis the night Boston believed they had dealt Matt Bartkowski in a package for Jarome Iginla.

Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton said he's ready to skate in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night at United Center.
Just as crucial, his coach agreed hours before the puck dropped.
"He feels really good, "Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "He looked really good out there, the last two days. There's absolutely no reason he shouldn't play...
from Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston,
"Nothing right now because there's nothing to say because our doctors haven't finalized the evaluation properly," Julien said.
During a Bruins power play in the first overtime, a scramble ensued in front of the Chicago net, and Horton was battling for position with Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson when he appeared...

Nathan Horton left the first overtime of Wednesday’s Game 1 after suffering a pretty strange, non-contact injury while in front of the Blackhawks net. Horton appeared to injure his left shoulder while jostling with Niklas Hjalmarsson in front of the net towards the end of the first OT in Chicago.
The Bruins forward didn’t return to the game and Claude Julien declined to give...
Overtime hockey is a stressful affair, where every mistake and opportunity is magnified. Jaromir Jagr is certainly feeling that stress in Game 2, after he hit the crossbar just over a minute into overtime against the Chicago Blackhawks.
After the near miss, Jagr — who hasn’t scored yet in the playoffs — let out his frustration with an angry yell to the sky.
Check it out in the GIF below.
Twenty-three years ago, the Boston Bruins opened their Stanley Cup Finals against Edmonton by playing a triple-overtime game. I was still over a year away from even being born, but as a fan of the Boston Bruins, I know the story. The Bruins dropped game one at home in what ended up being the longest game in Stanley Cup Final history. By the time the game ended, everyone just wanted...
Going into this series, I always thought that there would be a couple of thrilling overtime games. Little did I know that game one would be a daunting 112 minutes of tough ice time before a winner would prevail. This game was the fifth-longest game in Stanley Cup history, which is mind-boggling to think about. Game one of this series was exactly what most thought it would be, a...
Immediately following Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Bruins and Blackhawks, ESPN’s SportsCenter account figured they’d try their hand at tackling this whole “hockey” phenomenon with an exciting tweet recapping the game. Unfortunately, nobody told them that Daniel Paille, NOT Tyler Seguin, netted the game-winner for Boston.
The tweet was quickly deleted and all...
Just a few things that caught my eye:
I almost went to bed after the third Boston goal. What a mistake that would have been, eh?! Cue the comeback.
Marian Hossa will do anything to win. He, Milan Lucic and Tuukka Rask were the best players on the ice through two OTs.
Zdeno Chara was working his suffocating magic on Jonathan Toews all night long. Funny...
