Boston Bruins Rumors & News
The Boston Bruins have recalled first-round pick David Pastrnak from Providence of the AHL, according to reports. The 18-year-old Pastrnak, the youngest player in the AHL, has five goals and 13 assists for 18 points in 17 games for the P-Bruins. He also has a plus-12 rating in his first year as a pro. He did not play in Providence's 5-4 loss to the Springfield Falcons Sunday afternoon at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence. To make room for Pastrnak's cap hit of $925,000, the Bruins placed captain Zdeno Chara on long-term injury reserve.

“Who’s next?”Or maybe the better question would be, “Am I next?”The Bruins don’t have the luxury of sitting around asking those questions. The only question they can ask, even as another player seemingly gets injured and leaves the lineup every day, is, “How can I do my best to help this team win?”That’s the message from president Cam Neely.

The Boston Bruins are irate at the altercation between forward Milan Lucic and Blue Jackets defenseman Dalton Prout at the end of overtime on Friday and are vowing revenge when the teams meet on Dec. 27 at Nationwide Arena.
BOSTON -- Ultimately, the players dictate the end result on the ice, but a team's identity and preparation begin with the coach. Bruins coach Claude Julien has evolved during his eight seasons in Boston, but his coaching ability is really being put to the test this season, as a rash of injuries in the first 22 games has wreaked havoc on his lineup. And it certainly doesn't ease his burden when the Bruins have to play the Montreal Canadiens. With five veteran players -- Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid and Chris Kelly -- sidelined by injuries, the Bruins had their...

Tuukka Rask played well against the Montreal Canadiens, but still couldn’t come away with a victory against his biggest adversary, as his counterpart in Red and Blue was perfect against the Bruins.Carey Price stopped all 33 Bruins shots that he faced, and recorded his first career shutout in Boston. Rask’s struggles against Montreal have been well-documented, and he fell to 3-12-3 against the Habs in the regular season. However, in this 2-0 defeat nobody could fault the goaltender.

The injury-plagued Bruins actually played one of their better games last night at the Garden. With the exception of one sequence late in the second period, they did not spend long stretches in their own zone and they competed for three periods.It didn’t matter.The patchwork lineup simply did not — or could not — do enough to make Montreal goalie Carey Price’s life difficult and they ended up losing their third straight to the Canadiens this season.

The Bruins' forward had some choice things to say about the punch he took from a Columbus player that dropped him to the ice at the tail end of overtime on Friday night.
BOSTON -- After the Boston Bruins' 2-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night at TD Garden, Boston forward Milan Lucic was asked about an incident that occurred during Friday's game at Columbus. In the closing seconds of overtime against the Blue Jackets, Lucic had lost his stick and was jawing with Columbus' Dalton Prout. As Lucic approached, Prout quickly dropped his gloves and landed a punch to Lucic's face, dropping him and leaving him with a bloody, swollen mouth.
BOSTON -- Add Chris Kelly to a long list of injured players for the Boston Bruins. The veteran forward suffered an undisclosed injury during Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets and was not available Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens. Without five of their veteran players -- Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid and Kelly -- in the lineup due to injuries, the Bruins had their three-game winning streak snapped as they lost to the Canadiens 2-0.

The effort was there for the Bruins but as presently constituted they have to be pretty much perfect if they want to beat their biggest nemesis, the Montreal Canadiens.
BOSTON -- Injury-plagued, undermanned, inexperienced, overmatched and frustrated, the Boston Bruins had no answer for the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night at TD Garden. Without five of their veteran players -- Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid and Chris Kelly -- in the lineup due to injuries, the Bruins had their three-game winning streak snapped as they lost to the Canadiens, 2-0. Boston had to rely on rookies Alex Khokhlachev and Matt Lindblad as reinforcements from Providence of the AHL, and Bruins coach Claude Julien went with three totally different line...
BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins are without the services of David Krejci, Brad Marchand and Chris Kelly on Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden.
