Heinen's Homecoming to Vancouver

Heinen's Homecoming to Vancouver

February 17th, 2018 What a difference a few years makes. On June 15 in 2011, Danton Heinen had to watch his hometown Vancouver Canucks lose the Stanley Cup on home ice to the Boston Bruins. On Feb. 17, 2018, he'll be returning to Vancouver as an integral part of this Bruins team. "It's definitely funny how things...
The Rise of Riley Nash

They're currently the second best team in the Eastern Conference and there is no indication that this will change. There is a clear drive that is present throughout each player and that is ultimately carrying this club. No one...

Boston Bruins

As the Boston Bruins' season progresses, it is quite apparent that they are legitimate contenders. This is mainly because their team chemistry is outstanding. Every line is firing on all cylinders and scoring depth is at a premium. This is something that the Bruins have been lacking over the past few seasons. Yet, the way they are playing now is finally providing the team and its fan base with a new sense of optimism. The growth of their younger players has given the Bruins far more to work with. Charlie McAvoy is quickly becoming the best defenseman on the team and is still only 20 years old. Former first-round pick Jake DeBrusk has solidified himself a spot in the B's top-six and is quieting his critics. Yet, the biggest surprise of this season is the emergence of Danton Heinen. After going pointless in eight games last season, he shockingly is now one the team's top scorers. It is clear that there has been a lot of positive aspects to the Bruins' season thus far. Yet, the...

The Providence Bruins returned to action after the All-Star game with a home-and-home series against the Hartford Wolf Pack. In Friday night’s matchup in Providence, the P-Bruins peppered 50 shots on Hartford starter Alexander Georgiev but needed overtime to knock off the Wolf Pack, 2-1. It’s been a busy week for one of the P-Bruins All-Stars. Austin Czarnik got the call from Boston, an opportunity he’s taken full taken advantage of in this most recent stint. In other news this week, Bruins prospect Ryan Donato is off to the Olympics in South Korea. He will join three of the Bruins’ AHL foes on team USA. Czarnik Impacting Bruins' Lineup Czarnik potted both P-Bruins goals in their 2-1 win, including the overtime winner. After the game, he was recalled to Boston. The P-Bruins could’ve used him on Saturday night, only mustering 17 shots on goal and were 0-for-3 on the power play, where Czarnik’s creativity usually excels. There’s no doubting skill and playmaking...

Bruins Goaltending

It wasn't that long ago that we were having that conversation. It was the end of November, and Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask was struggling. Heading into a Sunday evening matchup against the Edmonton Oilers, Rask had been benched in four straight games, each won by backup Anton Khudobin. A loss that night dropped Rask's record to a dismal 3-8-2, pushed along by a sub-par .899 save percentage, leaving many to question the veteran's role as the go-to guy in net. Three months later, the conversation has hit the other end of the spectrum. Rask, who hasn't lost a game in regulation since that November 26 matchup against Edmonton, is playing some of the best hockey of his career and is now a Vezina Trophy candidate. He is, without question, the hottest goalie in the NHL and has helped the Bruins climb the rungs of the standings to establish themselves as a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Rask's Domination Rask's mid-season recovery has been nothing short of spectacular. Whether...

It is not beyond the realm of possibility that Boston Bruins prospect Ryan Donato, in a span of two months, plays hockey at the collegiate, Olympic and NHL levels. Should he play just one game at the end of this season for the Bruins (much like Jacob Forsbacka-Karlsson last season) he would be the first player in history to accomplish the feat. Let me repeat that. He would accomplish something that none of Chris Chelios, Brian Leetch, Mike Richter, Keith Tkachuk and countless other veterans of both the NCAA and the United States Olympic Program were able to. And now that the NHL will not be sending its players to the Olympics for the first time since 1994, the door has opened for Donato to make history. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we can still marvel at the tremendous season and the whirlwind week Donato is in the midst of. Heroics at Harvard To this point, the Harvard Crimson have struggled to replicate last season's success. The 2016-17 squad rode...

The Evolution of Brad Marchand

Boston Bruins left-winger Brad Marchand has developed himself from a fourth-line pest into one of the NHL's premier scorers. His path to joining the NHL elite was atypical, however.

Bobby Orr's Landmark Season
