NHL Commish Garry Bettman held a press conference this morning and, holy shit, did he have some awful hot takes. First off, we’ll start the least offensive remark. It just goes downhill from there. One of the controversies of the week was Winnipeg Jets fans chanting “Katy Perry” to mock Corey Perry because being a […]
The original Boston Bruins “big man” (at least for us young babes) is hanging up his skates. Hal Gill is retiring after 16 years in the NHL. Gill played in a total of 1,108 career NHL games with six teams. “I am so thankful to have played for such great organizations. I was lucky to have […]
No surprise here. Bruins centerman Mr. Perfect Patrice Bergeron was named a finalist for the Selke yet again. The Selke Trophy is awarded annually “to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.” This is Bergeron’s fourth straight nomination for the Selke Trophy. He won the award last year and in 2012. Per […]
It’s been a week since the Boston Bruins canned team GM Peter Chiarelli, so it’s about time we give him the traditional DOY send off and go down the Photoshop Memory Lane.
First it was GM Peter Chiarelli this morning. Now it’s three scouts, including European head scout Jukka Holtari. Bruins will have a presser at 3pm discussing the Chiarelli firing. We’d imagine there might be a throwaway remark about these guys, too.
No playoffs for the Boston Bruins this year, but that doesn’t mean some of the lads won’t be playing hockey into the late spring. Torey Krug was one of the first fifteen players named to the U.S. Men’s National team. The team will play in the 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship May 1-17 in […]
It’s simple. Bruins win and Senators lose in regulation, Boston’s in. OR Bruins win and Penguins lose in regulation, Boston’s in. OR Bruins win in regulation or OT and Sens lose in regulation, Boston’s in. OR Bruins win in regulation or OT and Pens lose, Boston’s in. If Boston loses at all, they’re out. If […]
Considering the year the Bruins have had and how there have been so little bright spots this year for Boston, it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that David Pastrnak was named the 2014-2015 Seventh Player Award by the fans. Pastrnak has 25 points in 40 games played this season for the Bruins. Recent past recipients […]
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 […]
The NHL is returning to ESPN… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PReim0Axt4 …kinda. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA head President Don Fehr announced that ESPN won the rights to air the 2016 Word Cup of Hockey. Rogers and TVA have been awarded the rights for Canada. From the NHL: “We are confident that all three of these broadcasters will provide […]
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. In the Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae journal article Copeland said Tuukka’s “glove hand is as tenacious as the raptorial […]
