Boston Bruins finish atop NHL power rankings

The Boston Bruins won their second Presidents Trophy for earning the most regular season points. That earned them a nice team photo opportunity, but winning another Stanley Cup is all these guys really care about. That goal is reasonable. They roll four very good lines. Veterans Patrice Bergeron and Jarome Iginla got better as the season went on. Their power play ranked third in...

At least Wings know they can compete with Bruins

DETROIT -- What does it mean that the Red Wings beat the Boston Bruins in three of the four games they played in the regular season? Not nothing, but not a whole lot either. "If we could take three wins with us into the series, it would be great, but we can't," defenseman Danny DeKeyser said. "Those are thrown out the window. The first to four wins." Goaltender...

Bruins Hoping To Apply Lessons Learned In Difficult First-Round Battles

WILMINGTON, Mass. — Boston Bruins winger Milan Lucic admitted last spring that he could sense change was on the way. The Bruins were trailing 4-1 in the third period of what looked to be a Game 7 disaster in a first-round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Had the B’s lost that deciding game — the culmination of blowing a 3-1 series lead — the club would not doubt look...

When 9-year-old Maddie Santosuosso joined Tuukka Rask on the ice at Boston Bruins practice last month, her gear was almost identical to that of the B’s goaltender — same jersey, same pads, same glove. All that was missing was a copy of Rask’s custom snarling bear goalie mask, which the netminder was unable to acquire in time. That’s no longer the case, as Rask has since...

More on the Rangers signing of Mat Bodie & the comparison to Torey Krug

Yesterday, the Rangers signed Union College defenseman Mat Bodie. At first glance, I really like the signing. Well, let me clarify. I like the idea of the signing. After all, Bodie was a standout on the best squad in college hockey this season and the Rangers organizationally have woefully few puck moving defensemen. Plus (and I will keep beating this drum) the Rangers really need...

Bruins Hope To Continue Power Play Success Into Postseason (Video)

The Boston Bruins went from the fourth-worst power play in the NHL to the third best in the league in just one season.

Peter Chiarelli: Patrice Bergeron’s Play ‘Is Best I’ve Seen Him’

BOSTON — The Bruins knew full well what they were getting when they signed center Patrice Bergeron to an eight-year, $52 million contract extension last summer. They knew that they were getting one of the game’s best two-way forwards and one of the franchise’s cornerstones for a long time.
