    According to New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella, Carl Hagelin stinks (on the powerplay, of course).  But on this play during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals at Madison Square Garden last night, Hagelin was only the second-stinkiest player involved. The first-stinkiest player involved would obviously have to be Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/16/2013 — Zdeno Chara

    Zdeno Chara’s biggest impact on a hockey game is usually his defensive play and his physicality, however, he has been getting the job done in the offensive zone as well thus far this post-season, and he continued that trend during Game One of the Bruins’ second-round series against the New York Rangers.

    This Day In Sports History (May 10th) — Bobby Orr

    It was on this day in 1970 that the Boston Bruins beat the St. Louis Blues to capture the team’s first Stanley Cup since 1941.  The Bruins won the game 4-3 in overtime to sweep the Blues in their best-of-seven series. Game Four of the series would go into overtime, but it did not last […]

    Any time an athlete does something that gets 5,000 people to throw $125,000 worth of hats on the ice, it’s pretty special. When you get them to do it during the playoffs? Well, that’s even better. Of course, in the case of the Boston Bruins’ David Krejci, these hats were figurative and not literal. The […]

    Rick Nash Delivers ‘Assist of the Year’ Candidate (Video)

    Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks were early candidates for “Assist of the Year” honors when they each delivered their own behind-the-back passes, which set up goals by Jason Pominville and Marian Hossa, respectively, earlier in the season. Unfortunately for both Vanek and Kane, they have since been […]
