During Sunday night’s terribad shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, Torey Krug was felled by a hit into the glass by Claude Giroux late in the third period. Apparently, he came back for one shift, then left the ice for the rest of the game with a UBI. Continue reading

This morning I could give you a long description of last night’s game, however, as the Bruins looked disinterested in playing hockey through much of the game, I’m going to show as much enthusiasm in describing the game. Maybe I, too, have forgotten how to write, what letters are, and that they form these things called words. Yeah, that’s what I’m going with. Maybe a description of the game by gif. Continue reading

After an off-day on Wednesday, the team was back practicing at Warrior Arena in Brighton. As expected Zach Senyshyn was “recalled” from Providence and so was Peter Cehlarik, making Cameron Hughes assignment to Providence the real deal.

The rivalry is not what it once was, with the Habs near the middle of the pack in the Atlantic and the B’s primary rivalry firmly nesting with the Leafs. That doesn’t mean that Montreal, led by the former Boston Bench boss Claude Julien, isn’t a tough foe. With the B’s showing weakness on Monday night, then regaining their composure, the Habs figured to capitalize on that. Continue reading

Last night’s game was not a sure thing. It looked like it was through the first period until the Bruins reverted to poor form in the second. But all was not lost, neither was the game. Continue reading
