It's nice to see that the NHL "finally" gets this, and it's about time that the NHL starts calling the embellishment, fans are tired of watching players diving and flailing all over the ice. Diving is unsportsmanlike behavior and if the refs call this stuff, eventually the players will get the message and stop doing it. Now, it's time for the NCAA on-ice officials to get the message and start calling the embellishment. So hats off to the NHL officials for giving both Tyler Seguin and Steve Ott penalties for their embellishment. Finally, the last thing the Boston Bruins players want to look like is the Montreal Canadians and the Vancouver Canucks, who embellish up and down the ice. Think about this, especially, after Claude Julien complained about the Habs diving to the Boston media. If Julien's players are diving and flailing up and down the ice like the Hab's and the Canucks players, then he really doesn't have the moral high ground anymore. Does he?

Bruins Shut Out Sabres 2-0

It looked like it was going to be the same story, Bruins come out sluggish and lose a game that they should have won, but the Bruins silenced the haters as they erupted for 2 goals late in the third period to shut the door on Buffalo, and put a positive note to a rather bleak March. It looked like it was going to be a tough night. Backup Anton Khudobin helped the Bruins stay in...

Bruins Will Need Production From Multiple Lines to Get Back on Track Against Sabres (Video)

Claude Julien-coached teams have traditionally been known for their ability put pucks in the net no matter which line is on the ice. That sort of balanced attack has been absent from this year’s Bruins squad, though, and the B’s will need to drum up some production from the third and fourth lines if they want to break out of their recent funk. “When we’re successful, when...

March is Over, Thank God

The Bruins have had a pretty miserable March, losing a number of games where they should have easily won, and looking terrible most of the time. Many fans are blaming the personell such as Claude, Chara, Horton and Lucic to name a few.
