Bruins defenseman Wade Redden led the NHL back in 2005-06 with a plus-minus rating of plus-35 that season with Ottawa. Redden was tied with Michal Rozsival of the New York Rangers for the league lead.
The plus-35 rating still stands as the best of Redden’s career. His best mark since has been a plus-11 back in 2007-08.
The Boston Bruins are no strangers to winning the plus-minus award. Back in 2008-09, David Krejci won the award with a plus-37. Zdeno Chara led the league in 2010-11 with a plus-33 and Patrice Bergeron took home the honors last season with a plus-36.

Kaspars Daugavins was no stranger to the Bruins and their fans when the forward was claimed off of waivers from the Senators.
Not only had Daugavins played against the Bruins with Ottawa, but he gained notoriety around the league for his gutsy shootout attempt against the B’s last month.
He was back at it again Monday morning at morning skate in advance of the team’s game with...
After acquiring some additional depth players to help them in their quest for another Stanley Cup, the Bruins are reportedly close to landing another.

The Bruins had some special guests at Monday night’s game against the Hurricanes.
Doctors and patients from Children’s Hospital Boston’s Brain Injury Center got to see Boston knock off Carolina 6-2, and some of them hung out with NESN’s Dale Arnold before the game and at intermission to talk about the Brain Injury Center’s mission. Dr. Mark Proctor spoke about what needs...

Claude Julien finds himself once again taking heat from fans and media. Why? Because in an awful effort against the Canadiens Claude dropped Jagr to a line with Campbell and Thornton, moved Seguin back to winger, and for some reason kept the Lucic-Krejci-Horton line perfectly in tact.
Fans are mad becuase the Bruins arn't showing the effort they have in past years. And Julien...
The Bruins had their most successful offensive performance of the season Monday night.
The Cam Ward-less Hurricanes were no match for the B’s relentless attack, as Boston’s retooled lineup gave Canes goalies Justin Peters and Dan Ellis fits with repeated wraparound attempts from behind the net.
The B’s second line was the most dangerous in the 6-2 win, with Jaromir Jagr, Gregory...

There weren't many highlights in the Bruins-Habs game, but Alexei Emelin taking a run at Milan Lucic was one of them.
Pro Tip: If you see Milan Lucic barreling his way down the ice at top speed the worst thing you can do is throw your body in front of it.
Emelin earned himself a sweet torn knee ligament and is out for the year. Emelin was the dude who...
BOSTON– Monday night’s win over the Carolina Hurricanes might have looked good for the Bruins on paper, but as is often the case, the final score may have been a little misleading. Sure the B’s rolled to a 6-2 win over a hapless opponent, but this was not the dominant effort the score might suggest.
The B’s did plenty of good things, but they’re far from out of the woods...
It's a good things I was distracted Saturday night by the awesome time had at the Days of Y'Orr/Boston Sports Then and Now/Bruins Daily Viewing Party because if I was home I'd have to write some of sort recap while I was *********. Usually they come out awesome, but I'm pretty sure that if I wrote it while drinking the creature my laptop would have been thrown...
