Tim Thomas won two Vezina Trophies as a Bruin, but what he's most remembered for is his Conn Smythe Trophy-winning 2011 postseason, when he led the Bruins to their first Stanley Cup since 1972. With the Bruins back in the Stanley Cup Final this year, and with Tuukka Rask playing great throughout...

The Bruins are heading to the Stanley Cup Final after beating the Hurricanes 4-0 and sweeping them in the Eastern Conference Final. The scoring didn't start until the second period. But when it did, it was how the B's seem to score all their goals these days -- on the power play. First it was...

The Bruins should have lost Game 3 in the first five minutes. And if not in the first five minutes, then the next 15 minutes. Either way, the Bruins had a horrible, no good, very bad first period. But the B's had Tuukka Rask and Rask had their collective backs, stopping 35 of 36 shots -- 20 of...

After watching Petr Mrazek give up six goals in Sunday’s Game 2, on the heels of giving up four in Game 1, Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said he didn’t pull his goalie because Mrazek didn’t want to come out and that “he has earned that right from me to stay in there.” Maybe so.

Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella is known for his acerbic tongue. But his podium intimidation fell flatter against the Bruins than one of Craig Carton’s standup routines.
