RECAP: Bruins 1, Canucks 2

RECAP: Bruins 1, Canucks 2

Great pace in the third period, but only one point secured. Period 1 This was a cluster mess to begin the game. Brandon Sutter there to grab the tight chance, Halak’s pad down, not pretty. Period 2 Noel Acciari needs some repairs. Period 3 After a barrage of chances, Joakim Nordstrom breaks through! Overtime What were those 3-on-3 combinations? A wide-open 2-on-2 for the Canucks and Bo Horvat seals the Bruins’ fate. It’s clear that when this team is healthier cough cough Torey Krug cough cough that it’ll have a chance to be better, but for now, they have to take it one game at a...

P-Bruins bounce back with 5-2 over Sound Tigers

P-Bruins bounce back with 5-2 over Sound Tigers

The P-Bruins had a much better sixty-minute effort in Saturday’s win. After losing the first half of the home-and-home series against Bridgeport on Friday, the P-Bruins came out strong on Saturday en route to a solid 5-2 win. “I thought for the most part [we] played as a team,” said Head Coach Jay Leach. “[We] did the things we wanted to do and rebounded after a tough loss.” The P-Bruins got off to a fast start, as rookie Cameron Hughes found the back of the net less than two minutes into the game on a hard shot from the right wing circle. Hughes dug for the puck along the...

Bruins recall Urho Vaakanainen, send Charlie McAvoy and Kevan Miller home

Bruins recall Urho Vaakanainen, send Charlie McAvoy and Kevan Miller home

Not much good news for Boston defensemen. So much for a quiet Saturday afternoon! Bruce Cassidy held his media availability out in Vancouver a couple hours ago, and had a wealth of information...not much of it is good news. From the Bruins’ Twitter account: Charlie McAvoy and Kevan Miller have been sent back to Boston. Urho Vaakanainen has been recalled from Providence on an emergency basis. Miller will probably be having x-rays taken after blocking a shot with his hand, per Matt Porter of the Boston Globe. McAvoy’s situation is a bit more concerning. Cassidy said he didn’t know...

Bruins Grab 1 of 4 Points in Back-to-Back

Bruins Grab 1 of 4 Points in Back-to-Back

Disappointing effort in Alberta When the puck dropped last night in Edmonton, it felt like a new game. The Bruins lost in disappointing fashion against the Flames Wednesday night, 5-2. The Bergeron line started the game with a solid shift. The Krejci line, now featuring Danton Heinen, dominated with offensive zone time on their first shift. Less than thirty seconds into the third lines shift, the Bruins were hit with an obstacle. Another look at the hit on Backes from Benning. Not good. #NHLBruins pic.twitter.com/pBuoQB54hx— Conor Ryan (@ConorRyan_93) October 19, 2018 David Backes...

Recap: Bruins stumble in OT, lose by a score of 3-2

Recap: Bruins stumble in OT, lose by a score of 3-2

A better effort, but not good enough. The Bruins’ mini-skid continued last night with a 3-2 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Leon Draisaitl scored on a 2-on-1 just 37 seconds into the extra frame, sending the B’s to their second-consecutive loss. The Czech Daves, David Krejci and David Pastrnak, were the goalscorers for the Bruins, while Jaroslav Halak made 19 saves in his first defeat in black and gold. With much of the New England area focused on the Red Sox game in Houston, the Bruins quietly turned in an up-and-down performance that, while an improvement over the showing in...

David Backes leaves game early after another hit to the head

Injured on the first shift on a hit by Matt Benning We will update this as details come out. David Backes left the game during his first shift after a hit from Matt Benning. Another look at the hit on Backes from Benning. Not good. #NHLBruins pic.twitter.com/pBuoQB54hx— Conor Ryan (@ConorRyan_93) October 19, 2018 The hit did not draw a penalty from the refs. Backes has had concussions before, and we presume this is what was the cause for his early exit.

Tonight is Zdeno Chara’s 900th NHL Game!

Tonight is Zdeno Chara’s 900th NHL Game!

This image is older than some people who will watch this game. Feel the ravages of time across your skull. Zdeno Chara, captain of the B’s, will be taking the ice tonight as their first pairing defender once again. He will also be doing so for the 900th game of his career with the black and gold; one of only 6 Bruin players to play this many games for the Bruins. Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of those players ended up wearing a C or an A in their extensive NHL Careers; like Wayne Cashman, Patrice Bergeron, and Johnny Bucyk. He also happens to work under another one of his...

Who's playing for the Bruins tonight against Edmonton?

Another change up front. Back at it in Edmonton! Per the Bruins' Twitter account, there will be a few tweaks to the lineup tonight. The main ones: Anders Bjork is out, Danton Heinen is in, and Chris Wagner is playing on the third line. Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Danton Heinen Chris Wagner - David Backes - Ryan Donato Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari Cassidy also said that he might make some changes in defense pairs, but didn't offer any insight. If nothing changes, expect: Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy Matt Grzelcyk - Kevan...
