For the first time since 2006, the Bruins decided to have a father-son road trip. Even the crunchiest curmudgeon who doesn’t care about off-ice stuff (that would be me) couldn’t deny that it was adorable. Luckily, all the parents and grandparents present were able to see a Bruins win (because it was a road game, obviously).
The second period wasn’t catastrophic. That was nice, I guess.
Welcome to the second period, please keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times.
Iron Man Doug Jarvis welcomes you to…
The Insurance Capital of the World uh, Raleigh.
The Bruins head into Carolina for what could very well be a game of lasts: Eric Staal’s last game as a Hurricane, and Loui Eriksson’s last as a Bruin. Both will be unrestricted free agents in July, and the trade deadline is this coming Monday.
In this week’s episode, we officially discuss the general possibilities the Bruins have at the trade deadline. Will Loui Eriksson stay? How about Torey Krug? How can we acquire a monster truck? All that and more in Episode 15: Monster Trucks And Trade Talk.

Good morning, everyone! Despite having the night off, the Bruins’ odds of making the playoffs improved last night with losses to New Jersey and Carolina. The Flyers are still in the playoff bubble mix after a possibly season-saving save of the season by Michael Neuvirth.
Carolina’s loss sets up a great opportunity for the Bruins tonight when they visit the Canes. A win tonight would further the playoff push, hurt the Canes’ playoff chances, and make it more likely that the Bruins leave Carolina with John-Michael Liles on the team plane.
