Claude Julien Praises Bruins’ Resilience After Fourth Game in Six Nights (Video)

After blowing a two-goal lead in a 7-4 loss to Buffalo that was riddled with defensive miscues, Bruins head coach Claude Julien knew his team needed to respond against a Maple Leafs squad that Boston has dominated in recent years. The B’s did just that, beating Toronto for a seventh straight time to improve their record to 6-1-1 on the season. “I thought our guys, for the fourth...
LEGACY OF BRUTALITY

John Scott TKO's Shawn Thornton with beatdown

John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres laid an absolute beat-down on the Bruins Shawn Thornton in last nights game. Scott and Thornton, both known enforcers, didn’t wait long to drop the gloves for this one and got down to business moments after the face off. The fight was over in less than :10 seconds but the damage was done. Scott landed 7-9 pretty solid blows while Thornton couldn’t...

Bruins Get Defensive in Win Over Maple Leafs, Earn Well-Deserved Rest After Busy Week

Claude Julien was extremely critical of his club following Thursday night’s game, and why wouldn’t he be? The Bruins embarrassed themselves with an uncharacteristically “brain-dead” defensive performance that left them with their first regulation loss of the season. Julien sent that message through the media, and he obviously sent it loud and clear inside his team’s dressing...

Buffalo Pylon John Scott works Shawn Thornton

The Sabres John Scott is 6'8" and 270 and plays about 3:30 minutes a hockey game and has no other value other than he's a goon, some might refer to him as an insurance policy. On the other hand, Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton is a role player that sticks up for his teammates and is also known to chip in goals. Thornton definitely took one for the team here....

Shawn Thornton’s Status Unknown After Leaving Game Following Fight With John Scott

BOSTON — The anticipation and the build-up leading into Thursday night’s Bruins-Sabres game was undeniable. Much of that surrounded the possibility of some hand-to-hand combat between two increasingly bitter rivals. However, not much came of that, aside from one quick first-period scrap that might leave the Bruins without one of their toughest players moving forward. Shawn Thornton...

After a Five Game Stretch, The Defense is Winning for the Bruins

As far as a five game stretches of hockey go, the Boston Bruins have met, if not surpassed, my expectations.  To near perfection, the boys in black and gold have rode Claude Julien’s system to a 5-0-1 record, all the while garnering a reputation as a team that will wear their opponents down with a defense-first approach until cracks begin to appear. This team plays a heavy, grinding...

Update: Shawn Thornton Concussed WIll Miss 7-10 Games

News coming out regarding 4th Liner Shawn Thornton is that he suffered a concussion during the fight with Buffalo Sabres' goon John Scott and is expected to miss 7-10 days. As I have been saying in the previous posts, Scott is 6'8" 270lbs, Thornton is 6'2" 216lbs. A 44 pound 6 inch difference. Also a note to point out, Scott only got 4:28 of ice time last...

Keys to the Game Vs. Leafs

The Bruins are coming off of a tough lose to the Buffalo Sabres 7-4. A game in which the Bruins played as bad defensively as they ever have. Lapses in defense gave up many break aways and two on ones. Irresponsible play by forwards and mistakes is what led to the break aways. The worst part of the lose was when Thornton got pumbled in a fight against John Scott and now Thornton is...

Bruins Make Uncharacteristic Mistakes as Part of ‘Brain-Dead’ Defensive Effort in Loss to Sabres

BOSTON — The Bruins are a defensive team with a defensive-minded coach who has instituted a system rooted in playing defensive hockey. If you watched the Bruins play the Sabres on Thursday night, though, you would think those statements are nothing more than bold-faced lies. The B’s had by far their worst showing of the year Thursday in a 7-4 loss to Buffalo. It was an uncharacteristically...

Bruins Preparing to Fight On in Absence of Shawn Thornton’s Physical Presence (Video)

Let’s be honest here. The 6-foot-8 John Scott absolutely pummeled 6-foot-2 Shawn Thornton during the Sabres’ win over the Bruins on Thursday. As a consequence, Thornton suffered a concussion and will miss at least the next seven to 10 days. So, the Bruins will have to march on without one of their key physical presences, but the players like Gregory Campbell and Zdeno Chara,...

THE GOGGLES! THEY DO NOTHING! Bruins LOSE.

Awful. Just awful. We didn't expect the Bruins to go undefeated obviously but damn that was awful. If the Maple Leafs scouts only saw that game, not even they would trade for any of the Bruins defense. That game was the worst thing I've watched since Pearl Harbor. By comparison, Pearl Harbor is one of the greatest films of our time. I am too mad at the Bruins defense to even...

GARTH: Adams Division Battle

6:35pm EDT: WGR's Paul Hamilton reports from the Garden that there's already chirping between combatants from both camps. Bruins winger Shawn Thornton crossed over the red line to introduce himself to Sabres aircraft carrier Big John Scott.. Clearly a violation of NHL man law in that its an unwritten rule that you stay on your side of the ice during warm-ups. If you...

Sabres Charge 7-4, Bruins First Lost of the Season

Vanek Destroyed the Bruins Tonight With 3 Goals and 2 Assists Boston Ma, The game basically started as Shawn Thornton scuffled with Buffalo goon John Scott. Thornton was man handled by the 6 ft 8in 270lb Scott and consequently would miss the rest of the game. The first intermission hit with the game scoreless. Second period saw some fiesty play from both sides. Thomas Vanek...
