Ray Bourque Impressed With Torey Krug’s Play, Texts Young Bruins Defenseman Advice

Torey Krug has opened some eyes around the NHL with his play during the playoffs, but Ray Bourque isn’t too surprised. After all, he has been keeping an eye on the young defenseman for a while. As explained by The Eagle-Tribune, the legendary Bruins defenseman has become a mentor of sorts to Krug. Bourque has shown a willingness to share a tip or two with the youngster — even...

AHL Playoffs First Round

The first round of the AHL playoffs completed today.  The first round is a best of five series in an attempt to keep the AHL season a reasonable length (something I don't imagine the NHL would consider).  This makes the first round results in the AHL a little more unpredictable then the NHL first round that is a best of seven series.  Here is a summary of the first round series...

Chiarelli, Tear Down This Third Line!

The Bruins third line has struggled at time this season. The shaky ways of the line started with Chris Bourque. In 18 games Bourque had 1 goal and 3 assists. Caron was called up and the out look was bright for the line. Caron quickly stepped in, tallied an assists, and looked like he was supposed to be there. Kelly looked like he was improving, he even scored a goal, it's suprising...

Bourque Clears Waivers, Caron Called Up from Providence

Julien laments the decision to waive Bourque, according to CSNNE:   “This is not a coach’s decision. This is an organizational decision,” said Claude Julien. “It...

After two stomach-punch losses in a row, the Bruins were prepared to try something different on Thursday night.

Still, it was the usual suspects coming through against the Maple Leafs, as the Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron...

Bourque placed on waivers

I wrote before the season began I wrote on how Chris Bourque's stock was rising within the Bruins organization. Both Claude Julien and Peter Chiarelli were high on Chris and felt he could be a contributing factor for the team this year. Unfortunately, Bourque was unable to live up to expectations. His subpar play became increasingly evident as the season progressed, and finally...

Bruins’ Third Line Continues to Struggle As Time to Make Changes May Be Approaching

The Bruins under Claude Julien have put the utmost value on being able to use any one of the four lines at just about any point in the game.

That’s not happening right now, and while the Bruins’ early-season dominance may have hidden some of their flaws...
