We want it as bad as you. It's been the slogan of these Boston Bruins all season. On Sunday night, the Bruins showed their electrified fans how badly they want to become the first team in franchise history to come all the way back from a 3-1 series hole. Sunday night's 4-0 shellacking of the...

Good Boston Bruins material from Don Cherry from 'Coach's Room' on Hockey Night in Canada over the last couple of weeks. Cherry has never shied away from showing some big, big love for his former team, and he fires off a few good rounds over the last few weeks of TV time. The first CC is a walk...

19:30: Ryan Whitney had a nice redirect of a Tim Gleason shot from the right point, but Tim Thomas was able to kick out a right pad and knock the puck away. Through two periods, Thomas has been the better of the two goaltenders in this Game 1 matchup. One of the biggest keys to the series. 17:31:...

WILMINGTON -- The B's routed the Hurricanes in four regular-season tilts this winter, and held Carolina sniper Erik Staal to a grand total of zero points and a -6 in those aforementioned four games. Not bad at all, and a pretty big testament to the job that big defenseman Zdeno Chara did on the 40...

Had an exercise on the blog in the first half where I listed out the scoring pace that each member of the Bruins was on -- a set of figures that actually gave a pretty good glimpse at the kind of seasons the B's were having. Players have settled in, injuries have occurred and rookies have slowed...

Sound the alarms. Blare the horns. It's time to wake Bob Lobel up from his winter slumber and get a hold of his big red "Panic" button. Things are going terribly awry for the hockey team on Causeway Street, and Exhibit F in a continuing stream of evidence was on display last night. The Black...

WILMINGTON -- A few notes after another competitive practice by the Bruins with the Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils on tap for the rest of the week. Veteran center Stephane Yelle again practiced, but is still in question for Thursday night's tilt against the Los Angeles Kings with the...

The Bruins hopped all over the thunderstruck Islanders in the first five minutes of the game with quick strike goals by Phil Kessel and Marc Savard . Kessel had the main assist with a nice dish on Savard's goal, and has factored in Boston's last four goals scored dating back to Thursday night's 5-3...

15:29: Beautiful goal by Phil Kessel that he sniped into the top right corner to beat Auld. The play was started with a brilliant entry pass along the wall from Marc Savard that freed Kessel to turn on his after-burners and get behind the defense. Kessel motored down the right-hand side, lifted...

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...
