The Model Franchise

from Chad Finn of, Maybe the rules of superstition suggest we should wait for the Bruins' first-round playoff series with the long-admired Detroit Red Wings to be complete before making such a declaration.. But it's the truth now, and it should be acknowledged now. The Bruins, not the Red Wings, have become the model franchise in the NHL. And the exclamation...

Bruins vs Devils: closing time

Its the last game of the season for the Boston Bruins. It would be a really sad day, but everything is alright, because the Bruins are in the playoffs. The Bruins may be resting some of their top players today while the Devils are looking to end the season on a high note.When 38 year old Bryce Salvador is your team Captain, you probably did something wrong along the way. The Devils...

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...

Jarome Iginla To Miss Bruins’ Game In Detroit With Lower-Body Injury

The assumption was that Boston Bruins forward Jarome Iginla was getting some rest Wednesday night in Detroit. The sniper wasn’t on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of the Bruins’ game with the Red Wings. His absence, however, is apparently injury-related. Iginla will miss the Bruins’ game in Detroit with what the team is calling a “lower-body injury.” It’s unclear what...

'Everybody knows the math' as Coyotes' opportunities dwindle

BOSTON -- When the Coyotes tally up all the opportunities they squandered this season, Thursday's game in Boston probably won't be one of them. Phoenix knew it was facing its toughest opponent of this four-game road trip. The Bruins had won six straight coming in, and they had looked every bit the part of defending Eastern Conference champs. That's why that third-period...

B’s Beat: Jordan Caron & Dougie Hamilton As The Batman & Robin….Kind Of (PHOTO)

Jordan Caron is not the 13th best forward on the Bruins…he really is “The Batman”. Even though Caron has been more Riddler or Joker thus far in his NHL career. Dougie Hamilton is not the young, puck moving defenseman of the B’s….his real identity is “Robin”.  He should give the tights to Caron because Dougie is more super hero than super zero (Caron).   What a 3 hours...

Caron 'a little nervous' entering NHL trade deadline

Jordan Caron wasn’t going to deny he’s “a little nervous” with the trade deadline looming on Wednesday afternoon. The 23-year-old former first round pick is most likely in his final year with the Boston Bruins while struggling as the team’s 13th forward, and the sense is that Boston’s front office will do whatever they can to salvage an asset approaching free agency....

Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Jordan Caron Out, Justin Florek Expected to Make NHL Debut Against Jets

BOSTON — The distance between Boston and Providence isn’t a big one, as about 50 miles separates the two New England cities. There’s a growing group of players in the Bruins organization that knows that trip pretty well by now. The Bruins have had to dip into their AHL affiliate a bunch of times already this season for emergency call-ups, and that trend continued Saturday morning...

Chris Kelly, Jordan Caron, Reilly Smith Proving to Be Bruins’ Most Effective Offensive Line (Video)

The Bruins rely on Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Brad Marchand for some scoring when they need a spark. This season, the top-two lines have done a fine job of producing, but the most consistency is coming from the B’s third line. Chris Kelly, Jordan Caron and newcomer Reilly Smith have already made a mark on the Bruins’ offense this season. The three only have three points combined...
