The Ottawa connections in the Bruins organization run deep. Coach Claude Julien is a native and has some immediate family in Canada’s capital city, as does general manager Peter Chiarelli. Captain Zdeno Chara and Chris Kelly also played a good chunk of their careers there.And when they watched the terror that unfolded in that picturesque downtown and on Parliament Hill yesterday, they could not help but be jarred.

The Bruins played one of their most dominant periods of the season in the third period tonight.Unfortunately for them, it was preceded by two of their worst, and they wound up falling to the New York Islanders, 3-2, at the Garden last night.Perhaps more alarming, captain Zdeno Chara played less than five minutes before leaving the game with an undisclosed injury in the first period. He did not return.
BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins have more to be concerned about than a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday night at TD Garden. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara suffered an undisclosed injury in the first period and did not return. It was the second time this season the Bruins were forced to play with five defensemen in a game due to injury. Boston's Kevan Miller suffered a dislocated right shoulder during Saturday's 4-0 win against the Sabres in Buffalo.
The Boston Bruins (4-4-0, eight points) host the New York Islanders (4-2-0, eight points) Thursday night (7 ET) at TD Garden. Here’s what to watch for: WELCOME BACK: Former Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk and former goaltender Chad Johnson will both be on the ice when puck drops tonight. This is the first time Boychuk will face the Bruins since he was traded to the Islanders on Oct. 4. In his first six games for New York, Boychuk has two goals and four assists for six points.
BOSTON -- When Boston was rocked by bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, the Bruins and their fans received unconditional support from the NHL and the other 29 teams.

The Senators were scheduled to host the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night, but the game was postponed.

BOSTON -- No more than a month ago, New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk would walk into the TD Garden and think nothing of it. On Thursday, however, the experience seemed almost surreal. Heading to the away team’s locker room, watching the Bruins during their morning skate, seeing plenty of old faces. And it only figures to get even stranger once Boychuk takes the ice against his former team Thursday night for the first time since being traded earlier this month.
BOSTON – As the backup goalie during Tuukka Rask’s Vezina Trophy season a year ago, Chad Johnson hopes he contributed to his partner’s success. Johnson, now a member of the New York Islanders, played only one season with the Bruins in 2013-2014. He was outstanding in the backup role, posting a 17-4-3 record in 27 games, along with a 2.10 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. Bruins coach Claude Julien worked his goaltending tandem perfectly, which allowed Rask to remain fresh for the entire season en route to a 36-15-6 record, 2.

So he sought out a little medicine from a man affectionately known as Dr. Shot.Through his Shoot to Score program, Glen Tucker, 44, has helped dozens of future NHL stars on their way up to the big leagues.
