Bruins waive Smith, send Lauzon to Providence

Bruins waive Smith, send Lauzon to Providence

Two minor roster moves for your off day. The Bruins announced two minor roster moves today: forward Gemel Smith has been placed on waivers and defenseman Jeremy Lauzon has been sent down to the Providence Bruins. If he clears waivers, Smith will report to Providence as well; as you no doubt remember, the Dallas Stars were trying to send Smith to their AHL affiliate when the Bruins plucked him off waivers earlier this month. Smith played in three games for the Bruins and didn’t record a point. His overall play was fine, but he didn’t do much to distinguish himself from the other guys...

Brad Marchand is an agitator in games of Knockout too

Brad Marchand is an agitator in games of Knockout too

The pettiness isn’t limited to the ice, friends. Brad Marchand is beloved by men, women and children across the league. This lovable, adorable ball of energy is everyone’s favorite player, on and off the ice. Or something like that, I guess. The Bruins posted a video of the team playing a friendly game of Knockout before Monday’s game, and it featured an excellent example of Brad Being Brad: Cellys work off the ice, too. @pastrnak96 | #NHLBruins pic.twitter.com/GgsUxiBAvS— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) December 17, 2018 (Link, if you can’t see the embed) IT’S BEAUTIFUL....

Bruins lines vs. Montreal: More of the same

Bruins lines vs. Montreal: More of the same

Not much tinkering happening today. Per the team, Bruce Cassidy is only making one change in the lineup that lost to Buffalo last night: Jaroslav Halak is starting in net. While the personnel may be the same, it's hard to say what he'll do with the lines. There was plenty of shuffling going on last night, but it's safe to bet that he'll start with the normal groups and shuffle as needed. Brad Marchand - David Krejci - David Pastrnak Joakim Nordstrom - Colby Cave - David Backes Ryan Donato - Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson - Danton Heinen Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari - Chris Wagner Torey Krug -...

Zane McIntyre is now the all-time leader in wins for the Providence Bruins

Zane McIntyre is now the all-time leader in wins for the Providence Bruins

A win last night gave him this honor! Not too long ago, P-Bruins goaltender Zane McIntyre tied the record for all-time wins as a Providence Goalie. Today, there is now only one man who tops that list; himself. With his 68th career win, he tops a record started by John Grahame back in the late 90’s as all-time wins record for the P-B’s, one of those seasons included the Baby B’s only Calder Cup. On route to this, he saw 21 shots, stopped 19, and was the third star of the game. The P-B’s, for how he was doing, saw it fit to blow the Hershey Bears right out of the water. You can read...
