The Bruins' Roster Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

Forrest Gump said it best when he stated "Life is like a box of chocolates--you never know what you're gonna get."

Some of them, like CSNNE's spotlighting of Tony Amonte's commentary, NESN's Mike Cole's praise for Jordan Caron and discussion of the Bruins' "room for improvement," CBS Boston's interview with Bruins play-by-play man Dave...

Jordan Caron’s Hard Work, Patience Rewarded In Bruins’ Game 3 Win

Boston Bruins forward Jordan Caron is on Twitter. If he’s someone who checks his mentions or searches his name on a regular basis, he’d probably find some words that might bruise his ego. The young winger is far from a fan favorite among the Boston faithful. Just ask this lady. It’s not that Caron’s necessarily a bad NHL player, but he just doesn’t do a whole lot that...

Boston Bruins punish Red Wings to take series lead

The pre-game psyche job that the Detroit Red Wings harangue their opponents is one of the best in all of sports, what with purple strobes and many incandescent beams illuminating a 50 foot Octopus named "Al" as he's raised from the ice to the Rafters like a styrofoam Stonehenge at a Spinal Tap concert......then fans throwing Octopi onto the ice during the National Anthem...

Bruins’ Scoring Depth Making Difference As B’s Take Series Lead

Detroit Red Wings Lose Home-Ice Advantage, Fall 3-0 in Game 3

  The Detroit Red Wings drop Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals to the Boston Bruins 3-0, dropping to 1-2 in the series. The first period was probably the worst period that the Red Wings have played all season. Boston would get on the board first on a power play off a penalty to Joakim Andersson for too many men on the ice, even though he never touched the puck. Dougie...

The Bruins May Need To Get Creative To Re-Sign Jarome Iginla

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, This is how the Bruins locked up Iginla to a one-year contract with a $1.8 million cap hit. They promised Iginla $4.2 million in bonuses for a possible payday of $6 million. So far, Iginla has been well worth the investment. The drawback, as the Bruins always knew, is how it will affect next year’s books. The Bruins are projected...
