Found May 26, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, Now let’s end the No. 4 comparisons. Krug is no Bobby Orr. Said another way, there will never be another Orr, which is both a good and bad thing in our town. They build statues for players like Orr, in large part because we don’t believe their likes ever will be seen again. If we’ve had the best, every­thing else is just the rest. Krug, though, is a very special player. He is small, shifty, quick, and best of all, he shoots the puck a megaton. Best of all, he shoots it accurately, finding the 24-square-foot net the way a certain Foxborough quarterback finds receivers of all heights and widths. Not much pulls me out of the old press box chair anymore, but he did it Saturday with 3:48 gone in the second period with a one-timer he whistled by Henrik Lundqvist. One shot. Game changed. Krug’s blast, on a power play, tied it at 1-1, and 36:12 later the Bruins and Rangers were lining up on the ice to shake hands. Bruins with bags pac...

Torey Krug Will Be Keyed in on by Penguins, but Young Defenseman Could Use Lack of Size to Advantage (Video)

There’s no doubt that the breakout star of the Bruins-Rangers Round 2 series was rookie defenseman Torey Krug. He was so good in the series against New York that John Tortarella even praised the undersized blue-liner — even if the head coach couldn’t come up with his name right away. Krug was so good, he was breaking NHL records. The Michigan native became the first rookie...

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is hoping the Bruins can finish...

(video) The legend of Torey Krug keeps growing; four goals five games.

The Boston Bruins signed Torey Krug out of Michigan State as a free agent after the 2011-12 season. The move by the Boston Bruins really looks like a smart move. Breaking it down further, Krug has been red hot since getting recalled by the Boston Bruins, scoring (4g-1a—5pts)and in five playoff games.

Torey Krug; something brewing in Boston

Bruins’ Rookie Phenom Torey Krug In The Baby B’s Edition Of “Cribs” (VIDEO)

Looks like Bruins rookie phenom Torey Krug won’t have to be sharing a Providence apartment with Jared Knight & Ryan Spooner anymore. After Krug’s playoff performance thus far, he won’t be making the trip down interstate 95 anytime soon. I have a feeling Ryan Spooner and Torey Krug may be sharing an apartment in Boston next season. I just hope they leave these hideous costumes...

Bruins Close Out Rangers 3-1, Meet Penguins for ECF

A legend grew, a monkey was tossed off a back and a city sighed in relief.  Such is the existence of a sports team in Boston. Tuukka Rask, whose every move was scrutinized under an electron microscope after the "Tuukka Tumble," shook that pesky (and a bit unfair) closeout monkey off his back. In his best game of the series, Rask stood on his head, made huge save after...

Bruins Add Defensive Depth

Conventional wisdom is that you try to have a playoff run with the team you had at the end of the season.  It is not the time to audition new players.  The Boston Bruins are not listening to that wisdom on defence and thus far it is working.  Two of the players who have been playing big roles on the Bruins defence in the 2013 playoffs have been Torey Krug and Matt Bartkowski. ...

Torey Krug, Bruins’ Fourth Line Highlight Depth Difference That Allowed B’s to Win Series

Sports, for as complex that we like to make them with over-the-top analysis and advanced statistics and everything in between, are kind of simple at their root. More often than not it’s the better, deeper team that comes away the victor. That’s no more apparent than in the playoffs, especially the Stanley Cup playoffs. Sure, a hot goalie can steal a game or a series or even an...
