Red-hot Bruins keep finding ways to win games

They can’t all be masterpieces, but what matters most in sports are the final results. Right now, the Bruins (39-17-9) are the hottest team in the NHL. After Saturday’s mostly actionless 1-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden, Boston extended its point streak to a whopping 16 games (...

Bruins should have traded for Wayne Simmonds: Picard

It’s always a good thing to be active at the trade deadline, especially if you’re in the buyer’s market. The Boston Bruins were just that, acquiring two offensive pieces prior to Monday’s 3 p.m. deadline. The first trade was made last Wednesday, as the B’s added 26-year-old forward Charlie Coyle...

Bruins end quiet trade deadline with Marcus Johansson

While they ended up not making (at least on the surface) the sexier move of trading for Mark Stone from Ottawa or Wayne Simmonds from Philadelphia, the Bruins still were busy right up until Monday afternoon’s NHL trade deadline. Last Wednesday, they flipped Ryan Donato and a conditional fifth-...

David Pastrnak injury throws wrench in Bruins season

Truth be told, there is no good time to have your best offensive player suffer an injury during a season, but in the Bruins case with star right winger David Pastrnak (31 goals, 35 assists), this feels like a particularly cruel twist of fate. Along with some of his teammates, Pastrnak attended a...

Healthy Charlie McAvoy becoming player Bruins need

It’s probably because he came in with such high expectations (first-round pick, 14th overall in 2016) that Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy has never really gotten a fair shake in terms of developing at the NHL level. Of course, he also starred for two seasons across town at Boston University and...

In appreciation of Bruins Patrice Bergeron

If the Bruins (29-17-7) could go into a laboratory and create the perfect player for today’s NHL, odds are that he would not be all that different from center Patrice Bergeron (18 goals, 28 assists in 37 games). On Tuesday, he played in his 1000th NHL game and fittingly scored the first and last...

Bruins have something in their fourth line

For obvious reasons, the top few forward lines on NHL teams will always get most of the attention from casual hockey fans. They score a majority of the goals, get named to All-Star teams and earn the biggest contracts. Still, to get anywhere as a team you need bottom-six forwards that are more...

Bruins David Krejci stepping up without Patrice Bergeron

If it feels like center David Krejci has been a Bruin forever, you are not that far off. Drafted way back in the 2004 second round (33rd overall), the Czech made the NHL club full-time in 2007-08 and since then, he’s been a major part of a Stanley Cup run in 2011 (where he led the league in...

Bruins will need Tuukka Rask to get where they want to go

It is less of a hot take than simply a general rule of thumb that in hockey, you need a dependable goaltender (s) to get anywhere in the regular season and then more importantly in the playoffs. So far in 2018-19, Boston’s (14-8-4) goaltending situation hasn’t exactly been the picture...

Jake DeBrusk has been dependable force for Bruins

In the NHL, one forward line (no matter how dominant it might be) can only carry you so far. One of the biggest challenges for the Bruins (11-6-3) in 2018-19 is figuring out who they can count on up front besides the brilliant trio of left wing Brad Marchand (6 goals, 15 assists), center Patrice...
