The Bruins ‘Charlie Coyle Dilemma’

When the puck drops at the start of Game 4 between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs, the Bruins will be looking to erase a 2-1 series deficit and even up the tables heading back to Boston. This would effectively give them the home-ice edge once again as two of the three remaining games would be played at home to close out the series.

Bruins Must Be Consistent & Complete for the Playoffs

The Boston Bruins are in the playoffs once again. They have clinched home ice for their first-round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Bruins had a topsy-turvy road to the postseason but, thanks to a strong latter half of the season, they finished as one of the best teams in the league with 107 points. Thanks to a strong end to the 2018-19 season, the Boston Bruins find themselves the second-best team in the Eastern Conference. (THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP/Winslow Townson) Despite...

Bruins Need Pastrnak on the Second Line

Thanks in large part to injuries and perhaps somewhat out of curiosity, head coach Bruce Cassidy and the Boston Bruins are well rehearsed in the mixing and matching of line combinations, up front. While the team’s ability to adapt to these changes is commendable, one would hope to see a more permanent lineup by Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Since the additions of Charlie Coyle and Marcus Johansson prior to the trade deadline on Feb. 25, an unsolved debate has been waged within Bruins N...

Every season, New England Sports Network presents one Boston Bruin with the 7th Player Award an honor given to the player who most exceeded expectations as voted by fans.

Bruins Can’t Rest on Victory Over Lightning

The Boston Bruins defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night by a margin of 4-1. They snapped the Lightning’s 10-game winning streak and how they did it was remarkable, to say the least. Goals from Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Jake DeBrusk, and (finally) Noel Acciari contributed to Boston’s exhilarating victory. They outshot the Lightning 41-21 and seemed to have the game under lock from the get-go. Even more impressive was the fact that they didn’t surrender a single point to Nikita...

Bruins Stuck in Neutral on the Road

With a 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Rangers on Wednesday evening, the Boston Bruins continued an unfamiliar and concerning trend in 2018-19, mediocre play while away from the friendly confines of TD Garden. After a substantial stretch as one of the true road warrior franchises in the National Hockey League with a 234-143-57 regular-season record (525 of a possible 868 points) over the past 11 seasons, the Bruins have regressed towards the .500 mark, something that only happened once since a...

The 2017-18 season both went better than expected and worse than expected for the Boston Bruins. Entering the season, the Bruins were fresh off of a first-round playoff loss to the Ottawa Senators and the hope was that the team would be able to progress from there. After all, the team went from perennial Stanley Cup contenders to a team narrowly missing the postseason in consecutive seasons.
