The Bruins are in the midst of a difficult stretch, but with a win over the Sabres on Thursday, Boston was able to secure back-to-back wins for the first time in nearly two months. The B's picked up a 3-1 victory over Buffalo in a game that was close throughout. Boston actually trailed after the first period, but Gregory Campbell's goal turned things around for the Black and Gold. Campbell tipped Shawn Thornton's slap shot past goaltender Jhonas Enroth to tie the game in the second period, paving the way for Johnny Boychuk and David Krejci to secure the win...

Zdeno Chara Shatters TD Garden Glass With Punishing Hit on Marcus Johansson (Video)

It was raining glass at TD Garden on Saturday. That's because defenseman Zdeno Chara leveled Marcus Johansson into the boards and shattered the glass during the first period of the Bruins' tilt with the Capitals.

Who Was the Last Bruins Forward to Lead the NHL in Plus-Minus?

While goals and assists lead to big bucks in today's NHL, one stat that is often overlooked or over-analyzed is plus-minus. Many may argue that a good plus-minus is nothing more than a product of playing on a good team, but that's not always the case. Currently, Bruins forward Tyler Seguin leads the NHL in plus-minus with a plus-35. The B's certainly are a good team,...

Bruins Goalie Decision Welcome Distraction Compared to Worrying About Team's Overall Play (Video)

We weren't sure heading into Saturday's game whether Tim Thomas or Marty Turco would get the call in net for the Bruins. Turns out it's going to be Thomas, but having uncertainty in goal is actually a welcome question mark considering the many that have been surronding this team as of late. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is glad to worry about the team's netminder...

Another week is in the books for the Bruins, and Tyler Seguin provided the Amica Coverage Play of the Week.

Grindin Gears: Bruins' St. Patrick's Day Jersey Should Be Burned

I ******* hate St. Patrick's Day jerseys. They're the ******* worst, especially when a team's color scheme has absolutely nothing to do with the color green or the Irish people. First, St. Patrick's Day has become some ****** up, drunken booze-fest where people use it as an excuse to get absolutely hammered and eat corned beef. Now sports are using it to have ugly...
