Another game, another defenseman on IR, and another rough loss for the Black and Gold Period 1: Things started so well, too... The Bruins locked down the Flyers for the first ten minutes, and were rewarded as Craig Smith and Brad Marchand got Patrice Bergeron out in front of Elliott, and he snapped it home.
When the Boston Bruins signed Craig Smith as an unrestricted free agent, they appeared to be getting one of the biggest steals of the offseason. A player who could immediately come in and boost scoring, Smith was seen as the perfect player to help fix a major crux of a lineup that’s often gone as far as the top line could take them.
With the NHL trade deadline just three days away, the Boston Bruins are one of the teams expected to be active. General manager Don Sweeney has some young players on his current roster that could be appealing to other teams, while he also has some prospects that could be packaged to solve multiple needs that Boston has.
The young netminder has been stellar in back-to-back starts for the Bruins, stopping 40-of-42 shots in his debut 4-2 win over the Flyers on Tuesday and turning aside 31-of-33 shots on Thursday in a 4-2 win over the Capitals.
The Bruins scored three in a row and held off the Capitals, despite two power-play goals in 19 seconds from them. A solid overall effort from the Boston Bruins helped the team to a 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals tonight at the Capital One Arena, despite giving up two power-play goals in a 19-seconds span.
What the Boston Bruins do before the NHL trade deadline on Monday will be interesting, and quite frankly, anyone’s guess. Many think the Bruins will try to make a pitch to add before April 12th while others aren’t so sure.
The Boston Bruins picked up a monumental 4-2 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers last night, with Patrice Bergeron scoring the sixth hat trick of his career and Brad Marchand notching yet another shorthanded goal.
Back in December, I wrote a “Dear Santa” letter with my wish list for the Boston Bruins’ 2020-21 season. While things initially started out great for the team, the Bruins have been on a bit of a roller coaster in the last several weeks.
A closer look at one of the NHL’s biggest trade targets this season If you’re like most Bruins fans right now, you’re probably eagerly watching your favorite sports media source to check the latest rumors on moves Boston might make to improve their roster.
Rookie Jeremy Swayman, 22, called up this week as a replacement because Boston's Jaroslav Halak tested positive for COVID-19, made 40 saves and posted a victory for the Bruins in his NHL debut Tuesday night in Philadelphia.
Halak, 35, has been his dependable self this season, posting a .910 save percentage in 17 appearances. That’s actually more work and better results than Tuukka Rask, who has been dealing with various injuries.
