I mean… we all knew this was coming but doesn’t make it hurt less… Bruins are currently out of a playoff spot, too. Ottawa is a point up with a game in hand.
Wasn’t expecting any re-signs until the off-season, yet here we are. The Boston Bruins have announced they have re-signed Torey Krug to a one-year extension and Reilly Smith to a two-year deal. Krug will get a cap hit of $3,400,000 next season and Smith will earn an annual cap hit of $3,425,000. At least we don’t have to […]

This is really the definition of the 2014-2015 Bruins season. During practice today newly added Bruins Brett Connolly took a shot from Dennis Seidenberg off the hand. He left the ice and, well, the diagnosis is not good. Bruins added in a press release that it’s a “displaced fracture in his right index finger.” *sigh* […]
While the Internet was either praising or freaking out of the Max Talbot trade, Chiarelli also traded Jared Knight for forward Zack Phillips. Phillips has played in 49 games for the Iowa Wild (American Hockey League) this season, recording seven goals and eight assists. The forward has appeared in 196 games at the AHL level […]
Man, apparently the only way Tuukka Rask can get a day off is if he gets sick. Probably saw “highlights” of his defense. So stepping into goal most likely will be Svedberg who hasn’t been great his last few outings (not that he’s gotten a ton of chances in 2015 either). And recalled to act […]
A newly discovered wasp from East Africa has been named after Tuukka Rask. The wasp, named Thaumatodryinus tuukkaraski, was found in the Teita Hills of Kenya by a team of entomologists which included Boston Bruins fan Robert S. Copeland.

So with the Bruins tanking harder than the Zeppelin filled with hydrogen, there’s lots of talk about Peter Chiarelli and/or Claude Julien getting tossed into the unemployment line should the Bs not make the playoffs this year. The question remains, who would replace those two? Well, Felger asked Milbury if he would be interested in the […]

The game will be played as expected, From the Bruins: NHL has advised that due to scheduling issues that don’t allow for an alternate date, Stars-Bruins will be played tonight as scheduled. TD Garden asks that […]

We’ve been asking for this match-up for years and we’re finally getting it — Bruins-Habs in the Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium. Sorry… this went off the rail fast… The Bruins are running a #BackOutdoors contest, too, where you can win tix to the game.
The verdict is in and Brad Marchand has been suspended two games for his slew footing in last night’s game. Fucking stupid, stupid, stupid Brad. The Bruins are finally on a winning streak and Marchand pulls this crap. Still not sure how Edwards and Brick thought this wasn’t a slew foot. This is a classic […]
Unfortunate news. Simon Gagne won’t be returning to the Boston Bruins this season, due to personal reasons.
