Three Ways the Bruins Can Turn This Season Around

The Boston Bruins have been far and away the most disappointing team through the first half of the NHL regular season. If the season were to end today, the reigning President’s Trophy winners would be on the fringe of the playoffs.There’s obviously still time for the Bruins to turn things around, but and if the Kings of the last few years are any indication, good teams don...

Even though Eriksson has played well in the limited time he’s skated alongside Krejci and Milan Lucic since joining...

No defensemen? No problem! Bruins LOSE!

The Winnipeg Jets are not that good.   While their record suggested otherwise coming into Friday night’s affair at the MTS Centre (the second ‘e’ is silently Canadian), the Bruins are a better hockey club in every facet of the game.  And yes, every facet includes overall skill.  I’ll gladly take a roster with Bergeron, Smith, and Eriksson (among others) over one “loaded”...

Return Of David Krejci, Zdeno Chara Puts Bruins Back In Regular Roles (Video)

To say the Boston Bruins needed Zdeno Chara and David Krejci back is an understatement. Without their best defenseman and their first-line center, the rest of the Bruins had to take on bigger roles than they’re used to.
