The Bruins are determined to put a stranglehold on the top two spots. After another stellar performance by Tuukka Rask Wednesday night in Phoenix, the Bruins are well on their way to doing just that. Rask had his shutout streak snapped at 170 minutes, 26 seconds when Ray Whitney scored at 15:16 of the first period, but that was all the Coyotes would get against Rask, as the...

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.

Bruins Mailbag: Top Line of David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton Still Has Room for Improvement

Another year is coming to a close, but this one won't be forgotten anytime soon by Boston hockey fans. The Bruins created plenty of special memories in 2011, ending the franchise's 39-year Cup drought in June and ending the year on one of the club's greatest runs in recent memory with a 20-2-1 record over the last two months. All good things must come to an end, and it...

Bruins' Road Trip an Opportunity to Forge Even Tighter Bonds With Challenging Schedule Ahead

Things aren't exactly going bad for the Bruins these days. They're riding a six-game win streak and are 20-2-1 since the start of November. But these guys are perfectionists, and they still see room for improvement. They also see an opportunity about to present itself for them to become an even tighter, more cohesive group. The Bruins returned to Boston from a three-day Christmas...

Game Day Preview: 34. Boston Bruins @ Phoenix Coyotes

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas. Now that the fat man in the red suit is out of the picture, it's time for some Bruins hockey! Feels good, let me tell ya.
