For all of the Bruins' postseason struggles -- the neutral zone, lack of even strength production, top-heavy offense -- want to know what I thought of when the season-ending puck hit the back of that empty net? Jake DeBrusk. I thought about his Game 7 heroics, and what it meant to an entire city...

The word “referee” has been said so many times during these Stanley Cup playoffs that it’s becoming as meaningless as the calls they’re making. I get it, you get it, the players get it, anyone who has watched a period of hockey gets it: So many of these calls (and non-calls) have been terrible. A...

No surprise here, but Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy has been named one of the three finalists for the Jack Adams Award, given annually to the best coach in the NHL.

It’s insane to do the same thing over and over and expect different results, but that’s only if the results you seek are drastically different than what you're getting. “The lineup was up on the board this morning,” Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said ahead of Game 7. “That’s it.” He put Danton...

Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy knows there’s not much he can do due to stop the current rash of injuries plaguing his team. But he knows that he’d like it to stop. “You know, call a player up, right? We signed one out of college; that helped,” Cassidy quipped when asked how they can deal with the...

The Bruins are rolling, and the Canadiens are on life support. It’s a staunch change from head coach Bruce Cassidy’s days as a young B’s fan. “I pretty much can recite most of the games from ’70 on,” Cassidy said following today’s morning skate. “So I’ve obviously had my heart broken a number of...

It’s been 25 days short of a full year since the Bruins fired Claude Julien, and 32 days short of a year since Julien took over as Montreal's head coach. But it's tonight that we'll see these former partners in crime clash for the first time. It's a meeting that surprisingly comes with little...

In Washington for their season series finale with a Capitals team that’s taken 11 straight from the Bruins, it was a strong final two periods from the Capitals, capped by an Alex Ovechkin shootout goal in a 4-3 final, that put an end to the B's five-game win streak.

Perhaps it’s fitting given the time of year, but the 5-foot-9 defenseman affectionately known as ‘Kruger’ to his teammates has been living in a nightmare this month. One of just nine NHL defensemen to record at least 50 points last season, establishing career-highs in assists (43) and points (51),...
