DETROIT — Brad Marchand made it through an 82-game schedule without being disciplined by the NHL for the first time in three seasons. Although he still had his moments, it was obvious the team’s resident pest toned down his act during the regular season.But in the Stanley Cup playoffs, he’s back acting like a wily rat in pursuit of a giant wheel of cheddar.
DETROIT -- The Boston Bruins held an optional practice Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena, and forward Daniel Paille (head) was on the ice, wearing a green no-contract sweater. He has not played since suffering the head injury on April 12 against the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden. He has been skating for nearly a week on his own, but there’s still no timetable on a possible return to game action. “He hasn’t been cleared, to my knowledge,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien.

DETROIT — If you asked the average hockey fan to compile a reel of Shawn Thornton’s highlights, it’s a good bet that most, if not all, of those clips would be of the Bruins right winger putting his bare knuckles to good use.But Thornton, in his seventh season with the B’s, has been proving that there’s more to his game than just fighting. In his first few years here, the fact that fighting is so rare in the playoffs has sometimes put him in the pressbox when the postseason begins.

The 2010 Eastern Conference Champion Philadelphia Flyers won four consecutive games over the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinal to become the third NHL team to win a best-of-seven playoff series after losing the first three games. Mike Richards, the Flyers’ captain at the time, helped refine his Philadelphia legacy through his role in the stunning turnaround. He recorded points in all four wins against the Bruins, was overall a plus-nine in the series, and recorded an assist on Simon Gagne’s series-clinching third period power play game-winning goal in which Philadelphia...

The Bruins got a good chuckle this morning out of a NBC "The Tonight Show" sketch by Jimmy Fallon and his NHL superlatives.
DETROIT -- It didn’t take long during Game 3 for Detroit Red Wings fans to show their disgust for Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic. Midway through the first period of Tuesday’s 3-0 Bruins win at Joe Louis Arena, Detroit fans began to chant, “Lucic sucks.” It was loud and the crowd repeated it several times during the game. The jeers were in response to Lucic spearing Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser in the groin area during Game 1 of this series.

DETROIT — Well, that was a sorry homecoming. Bad enough the Red Wings spent most of the first period in their zone. But at one point, they left the ice altogether.Or should we say “all together”?In a line change that looked like a five-man beer run, the Wings headed to the boards simultaneously, leaving Jimmy Howard to wonder, “Hey, where’s everybody going?” Talk about uninhabited ice. It looked like Greenland out there.
