Days of Y'Orr:
Before I get all up in this recap's ass like I just took it out to Sonic on a hot date, for those wondering where the title of the recap came from:
@JustinDOY stop being the school yard bully. Do you feel good about yourself after ripping buffalo. I'd rather have our class then ur trophy

If that's not the mating call for the losers, I don't know what is. You would rather have your "class" than a Stanley Cup? Guess class went out the window a few tweets later:
@JustinDOY @SaraMisiaszek haha my city is terrible. Your right. Arrogant prick.

So now all he's left with is nothing. If you would rather have "class" than a Stanley Cup Championship and a banner hanging in your home arena than you're a bigger fool then your background makes you look like. Also, can we stop using the term class? Class is so subjective that the term is u...

BOSTON -– While Bruins coach Claude Julien offered some promising news on the status of injured forward Daniel Paille and defenseman Andrew Ference prior to the start of Saturday's matinee with Washington, there was not much new to report on the progress of the club's more long-term injuries. Forward Rich Peverley remains on track for the original projection of missing...
BOSTON – The Bruins will have their suddenly productive third line together again after all. Benoit Pouliot returned to the ice for Thursday’s optional morning skate at the Garden and is expected to play against the Sabres after leaving Tuesday’s game in Toronto early with a lower-body injury. "He looks good," Bruins coach Claude Julien said."He looks fine. He...
Milan Lucic was voted the NHL's toughest player, and is used to going toe-to-toe with some daunting competition on any given night. So sitting down for an interview with NESN Daily was no sweat for the big fella. Lucic discussed a number of topics during his appearance at the NESN studios in Watertown, resulting in a must-see interview for Bruins fans. Tune in to NESN Daily on...
BOSTON – The Bruins won't be getting any reinforcements back for Saturday's matinee against Washington at the Garden. Forward Daniel Paille (upper body) and defenseman Andrew Ference (lower body) continue to progress from their injuries, but aren't yet ready to return. Bruins coach Claude Julien stated both skated Saturday morning, but won't play against the Capitals...
Although hockey players try to inflict physical pain on each other when fighting, there's still some unwritten rules when it comes to dropping the gloves that are considered sacred throughout the sport. Lucic discussed some of these unwritten rules during his appearance on NESN Daily on Friday, saying that sometimes a bout starts with a simple, "Do you want to go?"...
BOSTON – With a mediocre 12-13-2 mark over the last two months, it could be argued that this Bruins team hasn't exactly looked ready for prime time of late. In a more literal sense, the Bruins actually seem to excel only in prime time, with the club struggling mightily in afternoon games. The Bruins got off to a slow start once again on Saturday, and never fully recovered in...
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. A few B's fans were the recipients of the glass shower, but a subsequent thumbs up seemed to indicate that everything was OK. Play was momentarily stopped as...
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...
The Bruins haven't been themselves in afternoon games this season, as their 4-6-2 record entering Saturday shows. While they've been strong at night, for whatever reason, the B's haven't been able to translate early start times into too many points in the standings. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette looked to our Twitter followers for some guesses about why the B'...
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...
Just over eight and a half minutes into play, the Boston Bruins were an unmitigated disaster of a hockey club. Trailing 2-0, out-shot by the Washington Capitals 12 to 3 and an utter mess in their own end, Claude Julien opted to take his timeout in what was pure deja-vu from Sunday's loss in New York.
"Absolutely. We werenât playing good so I would be too,"...
First game, which starts just after 1:00pm ET today, is Washington traveling to Boston to face the Bruins.
Washington is in the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference, tied with Winnipeg but with two games in-hand.
They are also 3 points out of 1st in the Southeast and trying to catch the Panthers. Both teams have played 67 games.
Meanwhile, the Bruins lead the Northeast by 3 points...
