Tyler Seguin has been one of the few bright spots for the Bruins this season, as he leads the team in plus-minus and is on pace to score 91 points. It's hard to imagine he's just 19 years old. But because Seguin is having such a solid season so far at such a young age, it's a bit perplexing to think that the NHL needs to raise the minimum age requirement for the draft. That's exactly what the president and CEO of Hockey Canada, Bob Nicholson, wants to do, though. Nicholson wants to see the minimum age requirement raised from...

Bruins to Provide Melted Championship Ice From TD Garden to Every Hockey Rink in New England

Looking for a little home ice advantage at your local rink? Nathan Horton might know a thing or two about that. Horton, you may remember, squirted water from the TD Garden onto the Canucks' home ice before Game 7 of last year's Stanley Cup Finals. The Bruins had won all three games on their home ice in convincing fashion so Horton hoped to carry that mojo into Vancouver....

Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand Among Bruins Dressed in Halloween Costumes During Visit to Children's Hospital (Photos)

The Bruins brightened the days of some kids on Tuesday, and in the process, the images will probably brighten the days of a lot of their fans as well. A quartet of B's helped spread some cheer at Children's Hospital in Boston when they showed up to visit with some of the children. To make things better, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid and Jordan Caron all showed...

Zdeno Chara Dressed Up as a Bunny…That is All

Zdeno Chara in all of his glory. You’ll have to show me photographic proof to tell me that this isn’t the funniest thing you’ve seen all Halloween. It’s Zdeno Chara dressed as a rabbit. He’s accompanied by fellow Bruins teammates at a children’s hospital, spreading the joy of Halloween, I guess. I can only hope we’ll get a similar showing at Easter. Just pure gold. H/T: Puck Daddy

View From The Sin Bin: Bruins Hungover

Hair of the Dog?Seems like the Boston Bruins’ Stanley Cup hangover is in full bloom. The Black-and-Gold have looked flat in the first games of their Cup-defense season. There have been flashes (against Tampa Bay, Chicago, Toronto) but the solid 60 minute effort is lacking. On the bright side…Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask have been solid. Brad Marchand seems to have picked up where...

Nightmare fuel: Zdeno Chara dressed as a rabbit

You don't have to be Buffy's Anya Jenkins to find this terrifying: that's Zdeno Chara dressed like a seven-foot-tall pink bunny rabbit, flanked by teammates during a Halloween-themed visit to the Children's Hospital. Yes, this photo, tweeted this afternoon by NESN's Naoko Funayama, is real. It's also downright ghastly. One wonders if the plan here was to...

Ty Anderson: Is there a trade on the horizon in Boston?

Normally, I don't read into things too much. Perhaps that's a journalistic flaw of mine -- especially if it involves any player movement on the way -- but my ears did perk up today with a few tidbits of news surrounding the Boston Bruins. Firstly, the B's have already canceled Tuesday's practice. No big deal there, right? But then came a more open-ended announcement...

Horton to Deliver TD Garden Ice to Cambridge

BOSTON, MA – On Tuesday, October 25 Bruins forward Nathan Horton will be making a special delivery of melted TD Garden ice from the 2010 – 11 Stanley Cup winning season to the Simoni Skating Arena in Cambridge, MA (155 Gore St., Cambri...

Tuesday Morning Thoughts

from Mike Brophy of Sportsnet, • Just wondering, will the Boston Bruins be the latest champion winner to fall victim of the dreaded Stanley Cup hangover? It sure looks that way as the B’s opened the year 3-5-0. • Just about everybody figured James Neal would flourish in Pittsburgh mainly because he’d be the trigger man for Sidney Crosby. Well, Neal has not had the pleasure...

Bruins lines tweaked

The Bruins are on the ice here at Ristuccia Arena and coach Claude Julien has tweaked a couple of lines, swapping Rich Peverley and Nathan Horton. Horton is now with center David Krejci and the left wing combination of Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron while Peverley ...

John Toperzer: Pens @Islanders: Fight to the finish?

Pens (6-2-2, 3-1-1 road) at Islanders (3-3, 3-1 home), Nassau Coliseum, 7:00 PM ET Follow me on Twitter @JohnToperzer Few series, especially ones in the regular season, sear memories into the brain like the Pens and Islanders did last year. From Sidney Crosby’s desperate attempts to keep his point streak alive, to Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro acting like he won the...
