Found March 15, 2012 on NESN.com:
The Bruins have been on quite a frustrating stretch over the past week. After losing their fourth game in a row on Thursday night, the B's are in desperate neeed a little turn in the tides. Although there wasn't much to gloat about for the B's this week, there were some stellar plays to be admired by both the Bruins and some of their opponents. Washington Capitals' forward Brooks Laich had a sweet power-play tip-in that proved to be the difference in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Caps. Tampa Bay center Steven Stamkos scored his 49th and 50th goals against...

The Boston Bruins are in the midst of one of their worst stretches in recent memory, and things don't appear to be getting any easier.

Turco-Then and Now

I really want Marty Turco to do well, I really do. It just seems that real life keeps interfering with the coda on his NHL career. I’ve watched Turco play since his days at UM under Red Berenson. The University of Michigan hockey program at that time looked like the place where NHL caliber goalies were trained, polished, and made ready for a long career in professional hockey...

NESN Nation 'Tweetbag' Addresses Bruins' Cup Chances, 'Walking Dead' Predictions (Video)

That means a little bit of anything, from what to expect from the B's without Tuukka Rask to predictions for next week's episode of The Walking Dead. It's been one...

Grindin Gears: SO FULL OF RAGE Edition

Last night I was sitting on a terribly uncomfortable, flame retardant couch with a bunch of adjudicated youth who couldn't give two ***** about hockey outside of the fights. Do you know what it's like to watch a hockey game with six baby criminals asking "Yo Greg, when dey gonna beef?!"? It's a ******* miserable experience that I wouldn't wish upon my worst...

Flyers-Bruins Preview

Goaltending problems are a big reason the Boston Bruins are mired in their worst funk of the season. The Philadelphia Flyers are having no such issues. Ilya Bryzgalov's shutout streak may be over but his run of hot play certainly isn't, so it might be hard for the rolling Flyers not to put him back in net Saturday for a visit to Boston. Bryzgalov nearly had a fourth straight...

Steven Stamkos nets number 50, again

Stick tap to our friends at Lightning Hockey Blog for the picture Many years ago, when mastodons roamed the earth and the permafrost extended south to Tampa Bay, fifty goal scorers were as common as hot goalies in the playoffs. You could safely count on a few every year. But since the dreaded neutral-zone trap prompted a thawing of the ice caps and a cessation of unchecked glacial...

Steven Stamkos Scores 49th, 50th Goals of Season in Blowout Win Over Bruins (Video)

It's hard to believe that Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos just turned 22. The talented forward has reached the 50-goal mark for the second time in his NHL career -- in just his fourth season -- and has three 40-plus goal seasons. In fact, Stamkos has more goals (169) than any other player in the NHL since the start of the 2008-09 season, edging out the likes of Alex Ovechkin,...
