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...

Bruins Survive Sabres on Kuraly OT Winner

Carter Hutton stopped 38 shot...

Bruins General Manager Takes in Oilers/Flames Affair

The most recent Battle of Alberta was a throwback affair between the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames. There were hits, saves, fights, and a goal; but those highlights weren’t the only things that caught my attention. Oilers colorman Bob Stauffer sent a tweet out that perked my ears immediately.

Red Wings Goalies: A Deep Dive Into Their Goals Against

For the Detroit Red Wings, goaltending appeared to be the lone bright spot on their roster heading into the season. And “bright” may be a bit of a reach. If the Red Wings are going to have any success, Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier will need to carry the team behind an inexperienced or regressing defensive unit and an offensively starved forward group. It’s up to Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier to keep the Red Wings afloat. Ten games into the 2018-19 season, how have things looked ...

Sean Kuraly checked Matthew Benning into boards so hard that glass panel popped out (Video)

Boston Bruins center Sean Kuraly knocked Edmonton Oilers defenseman Matthew Benning into the boards so hard that a glass panel popped out during Thursday night's NHL game at the TD Garden.It happened late in the second period as Kuraly had a full head of steam and checked Benning into the boards from behind. The collision could be heard throughout the arena.The glass didn't break, but rather gave way completely as the panel fell into the lap of some Bruins fans in the front row. The fans bega...

Bruins 4th Line in Limbo After Demotions

The NHL Preseason is winding down, and each club has given onlookers a dose of what can be expected throughout the 2018-19 campaign. It’s important to remember that teams didn’t play their 18 starting skaters in every game. Exhibition rosters are riddled with prospects and depth players who may not see NHL ice as of October. The Boston Bruins fourth line remains a question unanswered. (Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports) It’s no different for the Boston Bruins. As they ramped up for the 2018-19 sea...

Boston Bruins 2018-19 Season Preview

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. A playoff loss in the first round was progress in itself but it certainly wasn’t where the team wanted to...

Morning Preseason Notes (Sep 22)

Injury update from the Boston on Friday showed potential roster forward Sean Kuraly out day-to-day with a lower-body injury. The only note that I was able to pick up here was that he was that he was hurt in one of the preseason games played, not sure exactly which one, but he's now being held out of action at the moment, unlikely to dress for the team on Saturday, when they play their next [Author: Clayton Corley]

Milan Lucic Trade to the Los Angeles Kings Revisited

It’s been three full seasons since Boston Bruins mainstay Milan Lucic packed his bags and made a near 3,000-mile trek from the East to West Coast. The Bruins, who traded Lucic to the Los Angeles Kings just prior to 2015’s free agent frenzy, received goaltender Martin Jones, Colin Miller, and the 13th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft in return. While none of the players involved remain on either team, it was an interesting trade. While it had some impacts on the Bruins and Kings they stil...

Bruins Camp Preview: Breakout Candidates

Last year, the Boston Bruins emerged from the bubble group and ended up as one of the elites in the NHL. Now, after many Bruins’ fans were just hoping for development and playoffs a year ago, the Stanley Cup is now the goal. A big reason for the change in expectation is that many of Boston’s young players broke out a season ago. Guys like Charlie McAvoy, Jake DeBrusk, Danton Heinen and Sean Kuraly all came to the NHL and outperformed expectations. If Boston wants to continue their upward traject...

Juggling the Boston Bruins’ Top-6

Widely considered one of the best lines in hockey last season, the Boston Bruins’ leading offensive unit had eyes on them throughout the 2017-18 campaign. Consisting of Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak on Patrice Bergeron’s flanks, the three players tallied a combined total of 228 points. The line was a huge reason why Boston found themselves in a duel with the Tampa Bay Lightning for the top seed in the Eastern Conference heading into the playoffs. They are a line no Bruins fan would like to se...

Carlo & Grzelcyk: Odd Men Out on Bruins’ Blue Line?

With free agency over and training camp about a month and a half out, the Boston Bruins enter the 2018-2019 season with some question marks on defense after a busy offseason. However, these questions are not the type that GM Don Sweeney and company are used to. In past seasons as recent as 2017-18, the main storyline with Boston’s defensive corps was who would step up and fill in a major role on a defensive unit pressed for bodies, a la Matt Grzelcyk, Charlie McAvoy, etc. This year, the Bruins a...

Don Sweeney’s Best Offseason Yet

While the Toronto Maple Leafs went out and nabbed John Tavares in free agency this year and while the Tampa Bay Lightning aggressively pursue a trade for Erik Karlsson, the Boston Bruins have remained relatively quiet. Although general manager Don Sweeney may not be done making moves this summer, he has been relatively quiet. That’s why this has already been Sweeney’s best summer as general manager of the Bruins to date. Don Sweeney, Boston Bruins, 2018 NHL Draft, Dallas, TX, June 22, 2018 (Amy...

Deep Dive: Sweeney’s Tenure With Bruins

When Don Sweeney was promoted to general manager of the Boston Bruins back in May of 2015, the team was entering a transition phase. The Bruins had just missed the playoffs for the first time in seven years, and with Peter Chiarelli already on thin ice just two years removed from the infamous Tyler Seguin trade, it was time for a new vision at the helm. Sweeney wasted no time making his mark on the team, trading Bruins favorite Milan Lucic, as well as up-and-coming defenseman Dougie Hamilton, fo...

McQuaid Trade Would Benefit Bruins

Entering the offseason, the Boston Bruins have a number of items on their agenda. That includes decisions on Rick and Riley Nash, as well as reeling in restricted free agents like Sean Kuraly and Matt Grzelcyk. In addition, general manager Don Sweeney will have to make the call on bringing back Tim Schaller and Anton Khudobin. If Sweeney wishes to re-sign Rick or Riley Nash, that will soak up a fair amount of Boston’s salary cap. After the signing of Urho Vaakanainen, the Bruins have just shy of...

Bruins’ 4th Line & The Mythical Bad Shift

The Boston Bruins’ postseason has been plagued with inconsistencies. There’s the first line, which has dominated in some games and been silent in others. The second line features a phenomenal showing from rookie Jake DeBrusk but his linemates, David Krejci and Rick Nash, have not been up to par. The third line throws hits — mostly by David Backes — but hasn’t been able to muster much else.

The winner of every game of the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs series has been the team that scored first. In a series that has plagued both teams with slow starts, the gameplan has become simple: start fast and early. The team that has taken the steering wheel early in each of the first five games of the series, whether that be through speed, possession, or board play, has been dubbed the victor. Even if the momentum of the game shifts, it’s the start that has set an irreversible tone. ...
