The morning skate is a frequent game-day activity both in the NHL and in many other hockey leagues, but a few NHL teams are starting to abandon the practice. Both the Colorado Avalanche and New York Rangers have done away with the customary skate, and now the Boston Bruins look like a team who could jump on that "no morning skate" bandwagon as well.On Saturday, the Bruins prepared...

Bruins Strayed From Two-Way Mindset After Strong First Period Vs. Jets

BOSTON — To say the Bruins’ 2015-16 season got off to a less-than-ideal start wouldn’t exactly be accurate. Losing a game 6-2 can’t be viewed as a positive outcome no matter how black-and-gold-tinted your goggles are, but if you focus solely on the first 20 minutes of Thursday night’s regular-season opener, you’ll find plenty of positives to take away.

Zach Trotman Is Best Option For Bruins’ First Pairing With Zdeno Chara

BOSTON — The Bruins have had a pretty good idea over the last few years of who would be playing alongside captain and No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara on the first pairing. Johnny Boychuk, Dennis Seidenberg and Dougie Hamilton most recently occupied that spot, and regardless of who was playing with Big Z, that pairing was one of the NHL’s best in preventing goals and driving puck...

Bruins Blue Line Will Have Lots Of Internal Competition In Training Camp

WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Boston Bruins didn’t defend well enough throughout last season, and the blue line could be a weak spot again given the youth and inexperience amongst the current group.

Boston Bruins 2015 Mock Draft: Predictions For All Seven Boston Picks

The Boston Bruins are well-positioned to restock their prospect pool with seven picks in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Projecting Boston Bruins’ Blue Line For 2015-16 NHL Season

The Boston Bruins were not the defensive juggernaut this season that they had been in previous years. Injuries to key players, including Zdeno Chara and Dougie Hamilton, forced young players into larger roles, and the preseason trade of Johnny Boychuk created a need for a top-four defenseman that was never filled. As a result of these factors and others, the Bruins fell to 20th...
