Boston Bruins

On Dec. 30, Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk was noticeably absent from a large part of the first period of a game against the Buffalo Sabres. When he returned to the ice in the next period, he proceeded to score two goals in less than 20 seconds and helped the team to a 3-2 victory. After the game, it was revealed that it had been a coach's decision that kept DeBrusk from action. The message had been a simple one, which was drilled into the entire team during the ensuing intermission. In a nutshell, head coach Bruce Cassidy told his players that they should recognize what an honor it is to wear the Spoked B. He stressed that each and every man in the room needed to earn his place in the storied history of the Original Six franchise. DeBrusk took that message to heart and has played consistently better since that brief in-game benching. In the time that has followed, Cassidy has held true to that method of lighting a fire under his team, especially the younger contingent of...

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are one of the NHL's oldest franchises. As such, the team has seen its fair share of legends pass through the city through multiple generations that will forever be cemented in history among the best of their time. While there were many great athletes who have played for the Bruins, only a select few of the very best to have donned the Spoked-B on their chest managed to reach the always-impressive 100-point mark in a single season. While some teams have never had a player record over 100 points in a season and many are limited to just one or two to have ever hit the mark, the Bruins have hit the double-digit mark with 10 different players to reach the impressive milestone. Phil Esposito Set the Scoring Bar High It should come as no surprise that Phil Esposito was the first Bruin to record 100 points in a single season as he's one of the first players in NHL history to reach the mark.

Detroit Red Wings

DETROIT — Andreas Athanasiou snapped a tie midway through the third period and scored an empty-net goal in the final minute, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Sunday. Detroit is easily the worst team in the NHL, but the rebuilding Red Wings have defeated the league-best Bruins in both of their games this season. Boston had won six straight until the Red Wings stopped the streak with their second win in three games. Detroit's Jonathan Bernier made 39 saves. Tuuka Rask stopped 17 shots for the Bruins, who were expecting to start Jaroskav Halak before he felt ill. Brendan Perlini put the Red Wings up early in the second period and Torey Krug tied it early in the third. Athanasiou restored Detroit's lead on a power play. He sealed the victory with his seventh goal with 29 seconds left after Rask was pulled to give Boston an extra skater.

Bruins Goaltending

Saturday night’s National Hockey League schedule featured 24 of the league’s 31 teams in action. A handful of team and personal streaks were extended in Tampa Bay and Boston. There was a clutch overtime save to complete a crazy comeback in Las Vegas. Plus, we got an All-Star goalie race against two of the top women netminders in the game. A Streak of Lightning in Tampa Bay The Tampa Bay Lightning has been all about the streak of late. Both Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos extended their personal point streaks to 10 games, tied for the longest active streak in the NHL. Their 3-1 victory over the New Islanders pushed their overall winning streak to six games. They have now won nine straight games in the friendly confines of Amalie Arena. This is the second straight season in which the Lightning have had a nine-game winning streak on home ice. And to top it all off, Andrei Vasilevskiy made 17 saves to improve to 16-0-2 over his last 18 games. You know your point...
