Illustrated Review: Breaking down the options on the Bruins' top line wing

Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand are among the NHL's best twosomes, but the Boston Bruins have yet to find a consistent third for their top line. Here's how top options David Pastrnak and David Backes fit the bill.

Kyle Turris scores twice, Ottawa Senators beat Boston Bruins 3-2

Craig Anderson makes 34 stops, Kyle Turris scores the game winner After dropping their last four straight, the Ottawa Senators looked to rebound against a hot Boston Bruins team that had gone 4-2 in their last six games. Boston, coming off a dramatic 4-2 loss to the Leafs last night, came up short in a valiant effort. Ottawa had the upper hand tonight, grabbing the victory by a score of 3-2. The Bruins dominated the start of the game, with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand showing off their chemistry. Holding Marchand off the scoresheet would be a key part to the Sens’ triumph, ending...

Moving Right Along

Nothing to see here The Senators are in town tonight, and the Bruins will be ready at 7:00PM on NESN. The Maple Leafs sent the Bruins packing last night. The game should not have come down to a late, curious penalty call, but that seemed to be the theme last night, so of course it did. Hockeybuzz David Backes and the later maligned Dominic Moore scored the Bruin goals, and things were contentious right from the start, as Patrice Bergeron was boarded. Tuukka Rask held his team in it for stretches. (With video) MassLive The revolving door flanking David Krejci as the second line wing just...

Should Leafs’ Soshnikov face hearing for hit on Patrice Bergeron?

It didn’t take long for tempers to flare in Monday’s head-to-head between the Bruins and Maple Leafs. With the Bruins out to a 1-0 lead, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron skated back towards his own corner to retrieve a puck when Maple Leafs forward Nikita Soshnikov charged in and drilled Bergeron from behind with a brutal […]

Patrice Bergeron got laid out by Nikita Soshnikov with a gross hit.

Soshnikov has made an enemy of Boston this day. During the 1st period of this game, it’s been pretty enormously chippy and scrum-heavy. And one such scrum came after Nikita Soshnikov plowed Patrice Bergeron directly into the boards head first. Video Courtesy of CrzyCanucklehead Right on the numbers the whole way on a player whose had a history of concussions. Soshnikov absolutely deserved his penalty. Thankfully Bergeron was okay and got back up, but then went after Soshnikov and got a matching penalty for Roughing. I personally think Soshnikov can punch his ticket to hell for striking a...

Bruins’ David Backes (illness) will be a game-time decision vs. Maple Leafs

A morning skate at the Air Canada Centre came with an unexpected absence for the Bruins. David Backes, part of the club’s rotating top six right side with David Pastrnak, was not in his semi-usual spot with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, replaced by Jimmy Hayes. It’s not how the Bruins drew up their Monday […]

Probable lines: Bruins vs. Leafs

There's a big name missing from the lineup. Patrice Bergeron was the big name missing from practice yesterday, but he's not the big one missing this morning in Toronto.

Patrice Bergeron misses practice, but will travel to Toronto with Bruins

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron was nowhere to be found on the ice at practice at Warrior Ice Arena on Sunday morning. But fear not: it was a mere maintenance day for the do-it-all Bergeron according to B’s interim head coach Bruce Cassidy. And it has since been confirmed that Bergeron will travel with the team […]

Is Bergeron injured? Acciari, Kuraly recalled

Well this is not ideal. Heading into what is essentially a mini playoff game in Toronto tomorrow night, it would be ideal to have your full team, ready to go. Unfortunately, that may not be the case for the Bruins, who recalled Sean Kuraly and Noel Acciari from Providence. In and of itself, that’s no big deal; however, the emergency recalls came as Patrice Bergeron missed practice. Uh oh.
