The Boston Bruins were busy this morning and afternoon with signing some of their minor FA guys. I wonder if Chia got a group discount for signing them all at the same time? Still waiting for the Bs to re-sign Reilly Smith and Torey Krug.
The Chad “Hi I’m Chad Johnson” Johnson era has ended. The Boston Bruins have announced that they’ve signed Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one way contract. In short, it means he’ll be Tuukka Rask’s backup next season and Johnson is hitting the unemployment line. For Providence Svedberg had a 25-15-4 record with a 2.63 goals against […]
If you haven’t heard, the Boston Garden is getting renovated this summer and TD Garden social media team decided to present us with what might be the most boring infographics of all time. Ok, here it is. HASHING MARKS> ZOMG! But wait! There’s more! Do you really want to eat Garden Mexican food and then […]
The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Linus Arnesson to an entry-level contract. Word that this happened came out a few days ago, but the Boston Bruins have made it official. They’ve been too busy pushing #NHL15Bergeron that they forgot about player signing news. From the Bruins press release: In the 2013-14 campaign, Arnesson skated in 44 […]
Behind the B isn’t the greatest hockey show we’ve ever seen. It’s definitely a watered down version of 24/7, but it does have its moments. Take in point the most recent episode in which PK Subban decides to go for Bergeron’s head twice.
It’s cool, yo, because he apologies for mistaking him for Marchand. Because going after Marchand’s head is perfectly legit and not at all a cheap shot.
@JustinDOY because it's Marchand…probably the same thought process Neal had when he skated his knee into his head.

The other night Montreal’s Brandan Prust nailed Rangers’ Derek Stepan with an egregious late hit to the head, which for Boston fans feels all too familiar. Awful. Stepan got a broken jaw for this and is out for who knows how long. Meanwhile Prust got a mere two games. Related: Dan Carcillo (who’s a piece of […]
Actually. This is pretty amazing work by Legos. I guess there’s a Legoland store or something opening up in Somerville. Good-bye wives.
After a 22-year-long career, Miroslav Satan is calling it quits and retiring. As a Bruin he had 10 points in 13 games played during the playoffs (14 in 38 in the regular season), including this doosie against the Sabres in Double OT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC_JTU4yotw This spurred the a new dance craze — The Satan. Also, we don’t […]
Expect the Vancouver Canucks to finally name Jim Benning as their new GM later this week. Hiring coach will be next. Trotz high on the list. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) May 20, 2014
It’s impossible to get through the playoffs without some injuries. The Bruins were battered and bruised almost to beyond recognition in the Stanley Cup Finals. And when guys like Krejci and Marchand go missing for two rounds, people start wondering if it’s injury related. Zdeno Chara Busted finger from the Olympics… and playing way too […]
“What’s said on the ice, stays on the ice. Unfortunately that code is broken. And it’s unfortunate that it blows up to what it is now. You know, I’m not the first guy to do it, I’m not the last guy to do it. I’m not sorry that I did it. I’m a guy that, you know, plays on emotion and this is a game of emotions. Sometimes you make decisions out of emotion that might not be the best one. That’s what it is. I didn’t make the NHL because I accepted losing or I accepted failure. I think that’s what got me to this point and made me the player that I am. Other than that, there’s not much more to it. Like I said, I’m not the first guy to do it and I’m sure I won’t be the last.
“I can’t take back what I said. I’m not apologizing for what was said in the handshake. Like I said, it’s just unfortunate that what was said on the ice gets leaked out and blown out of proportion.
“I live by what’s said on the ice, stays on the ice.”

Marc Savard was arguably one of the best playmakers in the NHL before Matt Cooke decided to go King Henry VIII on him on the ice. It spurred Rule 48 and every hit — legal or otherwise — being put under a microscope. Last night, Savard joined the folks on TSN for an interview. Here […]
