Losing sucks but everyone likes a good scrap.  After taking a couple good shots early in the fight Thornton was able to shed the elbow pad and deliver a devastating right that put John Erskine on his ass.  -@Rivetts5

Boston Bruins Place Chris Bourque On Waivers

BOS puts Chris Bourque on waivers. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 7, 2013 A.B. After playing 18 games for the Boston Bruins and logging a substantial amount of time on the power play, Chris Bourque has tallied just 4 points (3 assists, 1 goal). Today, as Bob McKenzie from TSN is reporting, the Bruins have seen enough. And while Bourque will take a roster spot for the Bruins’...

B's place Chris Bourque on waivers

The Bruins look to be shaking things up, and it shouldn't come as much surprise as to where they started. The Bruins have placed third-line forward Chris Bourque on waivers, the club announced Thursday afternoon. That means the rest of the league has the chance to claim him, and if he's not picked up, he can be sent to Providence of the AHL. TSN's Bob McKenzie was the...

Report: Bruins Place Chris Bourque on Waivers

The Bruins look to be shaking things up, and it shouldn’t come as much surprise as to where they started. TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that the Bruins have placed third-line forward Chris Bourque on waivers. That means the rest of the league has the chance to claim him, and if he’s not picked up, he can be sent to Providence of the AHL. The son of Bruins legend Ray Bourque and...

Zdeno Chara Takes Advantage of Open Lane to Net Fourth Goal of Season (Video)

The Bruins’ offensive attack went cold in the final two periods of Tuesday night’s overtime loss to the Capitals, but the B’s lit the lamp on three occasions in the first. A pair of those goals came off the sticks of the Boston blueliners, with rookie Dougie Hamilton scoring on a rocket from the top of the zone and Zdeno Chara exploiting a seam in the Washington defense to...

Fantastic radio call for Capitals game winner against Bruins

We've featured Washington Capitals play by play man John Walton a couple times before for his excitable calls from the booth.  Last night was no different as Walton exploded for Eric Fehr's game winer against the Bruins for a 4-3 victory in overtime, completing a comeback from 3-0 down after the first period. If you hear an awesome local radio or TV call you think...

Bruins Squander Three-Goal Lead to ‘Desperate’ Capitals in Overtime Loss (Video)

A 2-9 start is not what is expected from an Alexander Ovechkin-led squad, but that’s how the Capitals began the 2013 season. The Caps have turned it on of late, though, picking up their fourth win in five games with a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in overtime Tuesday night. The B’s took an early 3-0 lead at the Verizon Center but could not hold on, dropping their second a row...

Alex Ovechkin responds to Mike Milbury's criticisms

You might recall that Mike Milbury recently unleashed a verbal assault on Alex Ovechkin, telling him to act like a man and start trying harder out on the ice. Milbury's assault might have had a few elements of truth, but overall it was yet another unnecessary attack on Ovechkin by the NBC analyst. It took some time, but Ovechkin finally responded to the criticisms. His response...

Bad Ovechkin penalty ends up in Dougie Hamilton goal

Watch this hit by Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin hit on Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly. The Bruins score on the ensuing power play with a goal by Bruins rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton. Even as a Bruins fan, I have to admit that was a bad call against Ovechkin.

Rangers claim D Hamrlik off waivers from Capitals

Updates. The Rangers are adding veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik to the roster while they wait to find out the severity of Marc Staal's eye injury. New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, one day after Staal was struck in the eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over Philadelphia. Staal...

Keys To The Game Vs. Washington

The Bruins finally get another shot at the Washington Capitals. The last time the two teams played Tim Thomas was in net and Joel Ward got a game winning goal in OT. Almost like a bad dream from long ago. So far this season the Capitals are 8-11-1 and are having a dissapointing season after upsetting the Bruins in the playoffs. Part of the Capitals dissapoitninis the continue...

Alexander Ovechkin responds to Mike Milbury’s criticism

After getting shredded by Mike Milbury on NBC Sports Network between periods of the Washington Capitals-Philadelphia Flyers game, Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin responded to the criticism Milbury handed out. Quite honestly, this is the best response Ovechkin could have had.  Milbury had a short career as a head coach at Boston College, lasting only three months....

With growing confidence, the Washington Capitals are playing some of their best hockey of the season. Their current surge began against the Florida Panthers, and the Capitals can continue it by beating them yet again Thursday night and recording a seventh straight home victory in the series.
