The eventual outcome, the low scores on both sides and keen attention to detail, two of the best goaltenders in all of the Eastern Conference at the top of their goal-saving games, Sean Avery's antics in the third period, the measured and disciplined defensive tone, and the undeniable buzz...

It's ironic that on a night two more Bruins reached the esteemed 20-goal plateau '€” to make it a league-best seven 20-goal scorers for Boston this season '€” the Black and Gold again look like the mighty three-zone force that terrorized Eastern Conference teams over the first three...

Take penalties against the New York Islanders and you might just be able to kill them off. Take those some penalties against hockey guys named Crosby, Malkin, Gonchar and Guerin and you might not be quite as lucky in the world of the NHL . That seemed to be the moral of the story for a Boston...

15:05: Great net front presence here in the second period as both Krejci and Bitz had rebound/tips that nearly snuck past Auld. Really like the room that rugged skaters Lucic and Ryder are creating for Krejci. 11:07: Dany Heatley camped out in front with a great pass from the sideboards, but...

SUNRISE, Fl. -- Florida Panthers goaltender Tomas Vokoun leads the NHL with a .946 save percentage over the last 30 days, and he's been showing tonight why exactly he's been such a hot goalie as of late. He made a couple of solid standout saves in the first period, but he had an absolute stunner...

During the recent four-game losing binge that had some questioning just how good a hockey team they can be, the Bruins were uncharacteristically searching for answers and struggling in the third period. The irony is striking, given how much success the team enjoyed over the first half of...

The script had a deliciously Boston flavor to it after the first two periods of play last night, but Jumbo Joe Thornton got the last surfer boy chuckle in a 5-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks at a jazzed up TD Banknorth Garden . Milan Lucic banked himself a pair of blue-collar goals in the first...

Milan Lucic's two first-period goals sandwiched around a Sharks goal have the B's leading by a 2-1 score. The Best of the East Bruins scored first when Lucic banged home a loose puck in front of the net that gave the B's a brief lead. San Jose stormed back with a Rob Blake power play goal that ping...

According to several hockey sources, the Bruins and current New Jersey Devils forward Brendan Shanahan discussed a potential one-year deal during the first few months of the hockey season -- but both sides ultimately opted to go in different directions. The B's decided to stick with the...
