Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and visiting Boston Bruins was over just seven minutes into it. First came Arron Asham beating the exhausted-looking Tim Thomas off a rebound. Then it was Matty Niskanen's fourth of the year that trickled through the 37-year-old's legs. Oh, you wanted some salt on that wound? Here, have an Adam McQuaid injury. But just when things couldn't get worse fo...

Crosby to return for Penguins Thursday

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby will make his long-awaited return to the lineup Thursday night at Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers, the team announced. The 24-year-old superstar has been out of the lineup since early December with what doctors described as a treatable soft-tissue injury in his neck which caused neurological symptoms similar to a concussion...

Sidney Crosby will play on Thursday against the Rangers

It’s the news everyone has been expecting, Crosby will be back!  Hopefully this is the last time we have to think about his return from a long injury.    He couldn’t come back at a better time with the 3 game road stretch we have against division rivals Ranger, Devils and Flyers. Here’s a quote from Crosby today that was posted on the Penguins website: “I feel good and...

Crosby linemate options should be clear

When all know it's any day now we will witness the second coming of Sidney Crosby. But when 87 returns, who will be on his wings?Obviously the line of James Neal, Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz has been one of, if not the top line in the NHL. Adding a player like Crosby into a line like that sounds promising, but it's the wrong move.Why would you want to break up the chemistry...

Claude Julien, Bruins Must Decide How to Use Tim Thomas Down Stretch With Marty Turco in Fold

Tim Thomas has played a lot of hockey as of late, and that may not be the best news for the Bruins and their fans hoping the B's can lean on the veteran goaltender once again this spring. Thomas' miraculous play was the backbone of the Bruins' Stanley Cup run last spring, and if they are to repeat as Cup champs, they're going to need that same Thomas between the pipes...

Malkin hit on Boychuck

The NHL gives us lip service on how they want to take these types of hits and unnecesarry hits out of the game of hockey, in all levels of play, but then the officials let a super star player off of the hook by only giving them a two minute minor. I guess it's okay to make these types of dirty and dangerous hits that if your star player like Evgeni Malkin. It would appear that...

Report: No suspension for Malkin on Boychuk hit

Evgeni Malkin will not be suspended by the league for his hit on Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on Monday. Malkin received a minor boarding penalty in the third period after flattening Boychuk, who missed three shifts before returning to Sunday's contest. The Russian collected his 500th career point on the first of his three assists...

Patrice Bergeron 'Hopeful' of Playing Tuesday in Tampa As Bruins Continue to Deal With Deluge of Injuries

Maybe at this point, Claude Julien could just save time and list the players on his roster that are still healthy. The Bruins added three more names to their ever-growing injured list during Sunday's loss in Pittsburgh, and were fortunate not to add a fourth. After arriving in Tampa on Monday, Julien offered some updates on the condition of his banged-up squad while preparing...

Veteran G Turco fares well in debut with Bruins

Marty Turco made his debut with the Boston Bruins after replacing Tim Thomas to start the second period of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Turco made several stellar saves among his 20, but yielded two goals as the Penguins recorded their season-best ninth straight victory with a 5-2 triumph. The 36-year-old Turco was playing in Austria prior to the Bruins signing...

Great video captured by @WickedBruinsFan of Marty Turco and Andrew Ference doing a little batting practice on the ice after a recent practice.Move over Baseketball, there's a new sport in town... umm... ugh... Basecky... no, how about Hockball... nevermind.Re: Ference nailing Turco with one pitch... this is exactly why hitters should be forced to wear less padding. Otherwise...

Bruins Not a Big Draw For NBC This Season

The defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins have not lit up the ratings on NBC this season. Sunday’s Bruins/Penguins NHL regular season game earned a 0.8 overnight rating on NBC, down a tick from last year (CHI/WSH: 0.9), and down 20% from 2010 (WSH/CHI: 1.0). The 0.8 overnight is the lowest of the season for the NHL on NBC. The Bruins’ four appearances on NBC this season rank...

Send Billy Jaffe, Mark Mowers, Barry Pederson and Craig Janney Questions to Be Answered on 'The Instigators'

Just when the Bruins seemed to have finally turned a corner and were prepared to assert themselves as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, they show off some of their worst hockey of the year. A pair of back-to-back wins in Toronto and then at home over Buffalo seemed to have Claude Julien and the B's back to their early season success. But a visit from Washington...

VIDEO: No hearing for Malkin's hit on Boychuk

This is at least a three gamer if a Bruin's player threw the hit.Shanahan continues to declare open season on the Boston Bruins. Only reason Boychuk got up from that hit without help is because he's one tough mother ******. Seriosuly, he's probably banging Malkin's mom right now.Bruins also continue to not demand for suspensions and therefore don't get any because...

Pens Getting Hot And Healthy

If I have to pick one team as most likely to come out of the East Conference in the playoffs, it would be the Pittsburgh Penguins.  They have the second best record in the conference (behind the New York Rangers by four points).  They are the hottest team in the NHL right now, as they are on a nine game winning streak.  Most importantly their stars are starting to come back to...

Jack Edwards channels Monty Python

Boston Bruins' NESN play-by-play man Jack Edwards, who you may remember from such on-air moments as "The 12 Days Of Boston Christmas," Tim Thomas, the best goalie on earth!," "Unanimous Decision: Milan Lucic!" and "GET UP!," has found a way to top himself yet again. What's a homer announcer to do when his team's trailing 5-0 after two...
