Flames Surge to the Top Powered by Potent Power Play

CALGARY — A propellant in the Calgary Flames’ surge to the top of the NHL’s Western Conference is a power play with pop. Calgary’s man advantage was not a strength last season, when the Flames finished tied for third-last in the NHL in that department. It took a few weeks for Calgary’s power play to build steam under new coaches this season, but the Flames have scored a league-leading 12 goals with a man advantage so far in January. Flames Top Performers Performing on the PP Top-line centre Se...

It was New York’s fourth win in five games, and its eighth in the last nine meetings against Boston. Danton Heinen and Brad Marchand score...

Bruins Miss on Niederreiter Trade Due to Lack of Center Depth

The Boston Bruins missed the boat on a deal that could have landed them a scoring right winger to fill their top-six hole. It wasn’t necessarily an issue of bad work by general manager Don Sweeney, however, just an issue of timing and team necessity by the Minnesota Wild. Related: Hurricanes Trade Rask to Wild for Niederreiter The Wild and Carolina Hurricanes made a deal Thursday that saw Victor Rask traded to the Wild in exchange for Nino Niederreiter. On paper, this deal seems like a major win...

Flyers Rally Past Bruins – Couturier Nets Hat Trick

PHILADELPHIA — Sean Couturier had a hat trick, Carter Hart stopped 39 shots and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Wednesday night. Couturier scored twice within 90 seconds in the second period and sealed the win with his 19th goal late in the third for his first career regular-season hat trick (two in the playoffs). He gave the Flyers hat tricks in consecutive games after James van Riemsdyk kicked it off in Monday’s win. Philadelphia Flyers’ Sean Couturier scores a goal on B...

Bruins Ready to Rake the Leafs This Spring

The playoff-type feel at Scotiabank Arena this past Saturday was not as premature as one might think, given that three months remain until the Stanley Cup tournament. The Boston Bruins concluded their season series against the Toronto Maple Leafs with a thrilling 3-2 victory, their third win in four meetings. If the postseason began today, the two teams, currently separated by a single point in the standings, would again meet in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. As you might recall, th...

Canadiens Beat Bruins – Petry With OT Winner

BOSTON — Jeff Petry scored 15 seconds into overtime, batting the puck out of the air and past Tuukka Rask to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Monday night. Carey Price stopped 41 shots for the Canadiens. Paul Byron scored a short-handed goal, and Brendan Gallagher also scored to help Montreal earn its third victory in four tries.

Bruins Beat Maple Leafs – Pastrnak Nets Winner

TORONTO — David Pastrnak continues to terrorize the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Boston winger snapped a 2-2 tie late in the second period as the Bruins defeated Toronto 3-2 on Saturday night. Sean Kuraly, with a goal and two assists, and David Krejci also scored for Boston (26-15-4), which eliminated the Leafs in seven games in the first round of last season’s playoffs.

Top 10 Contracts in the NHL

With more than half of all National Hockey League clubs within $4 million of the current $79.5 million salary cap, it’s safe to say many were relieved when it was widely reported that next season’s ceiling will increase to $83 million. That $3.5 million increase may be enough to give contending teams the room they need to piece things together. What’s even more helpful, however, is when some of your best players are already signed to team-friendly, long-term deals. Young stars signed to long-ter...

Will Laine’s Play Save the Jets Some Dough?

Patrik Laine is in the final year of his entry-level contract and is set for a huge raise and a long-term contract come July. However, will his inconsistencies and struggles, which have recently come to a head,  impact how much of a raise it will be? Laine a Streaky Scorer Laine undoubtedly possesses one of the NHL’s most dangerous shots. That being said, his offensive output has more ups and downs than the Lacerda Elevator. He looked lost to start the season, scoring just three goals an...

Thoughts on the 2019 Winter Classic

As the Boston Bruins celebrated a thrilling 4-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks at the 2019 Winter Classic in front of the nearly 80,000 fans in attendance at Notre Dame Stadium on New Year’s Day, a curious thought crossed my mind. Should this exact moment have been delivered, under an even brighter spotlight, six years earlier? Let’s venture back to Jan. 1, 2013, when instead of watching the intended Winter Classic matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings at Michi...

Bruins Douse Flames – DeBrusk & Marchand Both Get Two

BOSTON — Jake DeBrusk and Brad Marchand each had two goals to lift the Boston Bruins over the Calgary Flames 6-4 on Thursday night. Boston has won three in a row and six of eight. The Bruins built on their win over Chicago in Tuesday’s Winter Classic by beating the top team in the Western Conference. Jaroslav Halak stopped 33 shots, and John Moore and David Pastrnak also scored. Boston Bruins left wing Jake DeBrusk celebrates with Danton Heinen and David Krejci (AP Photo/Elise Amendola) Mike S...

David Pastrnak on pace for Bruins' first 50-goal season in a quarter-century originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com It's been a quarter-century since a Bruin reached the 50-goal mark, but maybe -- just maybe -- this is the year that streak ends.

5 Boston Bruins Predictions for 2019

What a way to kick off the New Year, huh? The Boston Bruins walked into Notre Dame Stadium (in style, might I add) and took two points from the Chicago Blackhawks in the annual NHL Winter Classic. After an up and down 2018 filled with moments both good and bad, 2019 couldn’t have kicked off in better fashion for the B’s. We’re just getting started though. Boston Bruins’ David Pastrnak celebrates after scoring his goal against the Chicago Blackhawks in the first period of the NHL Winter Classic....

Boston Bruins’ Christmas Wish List

Merry Christmas, my friends! It’s hard to believe, but it is the time of year again where we put out the milk and cookies and wait for Santa to come drop our presents. The Boston Bruins are no different than we are, and they will be hoping that Santa is awfully good to them this time around.

Possible Destinations for Vladimir Tarasenko

In what would have been an inconceivable turn of events twelve months ago, or even six, St. Louis Blues’ star goal scorer Vladimir Tarasenko is rumored to be available for trade. It is a testament to how desperate the Blues are and how stunned they are by their performance thus far that general manager Doug Armstrong would even consider moving a player with that much talent. With that said, there isn’t a team in the league who would not be theoretically interested in a player of Tarasenko’...

The NHL Has Become A Scoring League Again

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazete (before the Saturday night games), Eight players are on pace to score 50 or more goals, which is downright nuts when you consider that the NHL has had a total of nine 50-plus-goal seasons from 2009-18. At his current pace, Washington’s Alex Ovechkin (29 goals in 34 games before Saturday) is projected to score 70. Although he has missed time and can’t possibly sustain his current pace (19 in 21), Toronto’s Auston Matthews is tracking towa...

Bruins’ Donato Rounding Into Form

It was a rough start to the 2018-19 season for Ryan Donato. Despite a plethora of injuries to the Bruins, a forward group that simply couldn’t score outside of the team’s top line and a legitimate chance to prove himself, Donato failed to separate himself from the pack for the right reasons. Instead, he seemed so snake-bitten that he was standing out for all the wrong reasons.
