It's a homecoming tonight for Vancouver homeboy Milan Lucic , who played junior hockey for the Vancouver Giants and is appropriately pumped to play his first ever NHL game at GM Place against the Canucks on Tuesday night. The local Vancouver media has the requisite "prodigal pugilist coming home...

Solid two-way hockey effort in a 1-0 overtime win over the Edmonton Oilers last night helped kick off a character-testing three game road trip into the hockey hotbeds of western Canada. The defense was crisp and supportive in the box-and-one style preached by Claude Julien , and the offense...

Good times all-around for the Bruins following a 5-4 win over the Thrashers Saturday night at the TD Banknorth Garden before an announced crowd of 16,044 -- a rowdy bunch that booed the B's off the ice when they were down 2-0 following the first period and then easily tossed 50 hats on the ice...

The B's Friday morning practice was one predictably filled with skating, more skating and a big helping of sheepish regret after frittering one away against a divisional opponent the night before at the Garden. The B's are still looking for their first win on home ice, and Claude Julien still...

Not good times for the Bruins on a Thursday night when things looked so good early, but then the fat-and-happy B's allowed a seemingly lesser Toronto Maple Leafs  team to outskate, outwit and outlast them over the final two periods of a 4-2 loss at the TD Banknorth Frozen Sheet. Things got off to...

The Bruins shot out to a two-goal lead over the Leafs Thursday night before their home crowd, but listen to Dennis Wideman , and even the leaders knew trouble was brewing. He was right. The Bruins were done scoring and, despite Patrice Bergeron's first goal since Oct. 13, 2007 against San Jose and...

 Things have come full circle for the kid that many consider to be the Heart and Soul of the Bruins. Patrice Bergeron scored his first goal tonight since returning from a career-threatening concussion that limited the young Bruins center to only 10 games last season. The score came in Bergeron'...

Since we've been discussing the shootouts so much, here's last season's shooting percentages and success rate for each of the Bruins players heading into tonight's match-up with the Maple Leafs -- if it should get to that point. As an aside, there's a strong Pucks with Haggs vote to put another...
