Bruins' Halak Returning to Early-Season Form

February 16th, 2019 The Boston Bruins nabbed Jaroslav Halak from the free agent market on July 1. His duty was to replace backup netminder Anton Kuhdobin who parted ways with the team that summer. In his first months as a Bruin, Halak did much more than that. Halak was playing like a starting goalie - something he...

Trade Deadline

Barring a major collapse, the Boston Bruins will return to the playoffs for the third straight season this spring. The only thing really left to decide is whether or not the Bruins will be the third seed in the Atlantic Division or if they will be in a wild card position. That battle with the Montreal Canadiens is likely to come down to the final few weeks of the season. As of this writing, we are just 13 days away from the NHL's annual trading deadline. Once again, general manager Don Sweeney and friends appear to be buyers heading into the frenzy. Last season it was Rick Nash and Nick Holden who were acquired in separate trades with the New York Rangers, with Drew Stafford coming over the season prior to that. History suggests that Sweeney will do something prior to the deadline, it is just a matter of what he will do. In order to compete with teams like the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs, the Bruins are going to need at least two lines that can consistently...

The Boston Bruins will be without their leading goal and point producer for at least two weeks. David Pastrnak injured his left thumb Sunday night and underwent a procedure to repair the damages. The repair was deemed successful and the team will re-evaluate the injury in two weeks, according to the Bruins. https://twitter.com/NHLBruins/status/1095356156611125248 This is a major injury for the Bruins, something they've unfortunately grown accustomed to over the last two seasons. Not only does Pastrnak lead the Bruins in goals (31) and points (66) in just 56 games, he's also among the league leaders in both of those categories as well. His 31 goals are tied for the seventh-best mark in the NHL and his 66 points put him in the top 10 as well. Pastrnak has been a star in Boston over the last three seasons and has improved every season since his debut as an 18-year-old  during the 2014-15 season. He'd score 25 goals and 53 points over his first 97 games between his rookie and...

Boston Bruins

With a 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Rangers on Wednesday evening, the Boston Bruins continued an unfamiliar and concerning trend in 2018-19, mediocre play while away from the friendly confines of TD Garden. After a substantial stretch as one of the true road warrior franchises in the National Hockey League with a 234-143-57 regular-season record (525 of a possible 868 points) over the past 11 seasons, the Bruins have regressed towards the .500 mark, something that only happened once since a forgettable 2006-07 season under head coach Dave Lewis. Two months later, Claude Julien took over and subsequently led his teams to 20-plus road wins in seven of eight full seasons, excluding a lockout-shortened 2012-13, where they finished 12-9-3. The lone exception came two seasons later when the Black & Gold struggled to a 17-17-7 mark and missed the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons. Julien's successor, Bruce Cassidy, has helped to carry on the winning...

Esposito: The Trade That Shaped the Boston Bruins

Bobby Orr's Landmark Season

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. According to Hockey-Graphs, most players plateau in Wins Above Replacement (WAR) from age 22 to 25 and endure a slow... November 8th, 2017
