Week 23 of the American Hockey League season is upon us, with less than 20 games remaining for almost every AHL club. Eight points separate the second and eighth seeds […]
The names on the score sheet will only tell you so much. For an injury-depleted Boston Bruins team, it’s more than just goals, assists, and saves–it’s where they came from.
Out of the 19 players that the Bruins dressed on Thursday night, 11 have spent time playing with the Providence Bruins, Boston’s AHL affiliate. Six of them played an important role in Thursday’s 3-2 overtime win against the Nashville Predators. One of them picked up his first career NHL win in his first start with Boston.
The Boston Bruins’ 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night meant a little something more than just another tally in the win column.
For Reilly Smith, who scored twice in the third period, it was the game where he gained the lead in goals scored for the Bruins with his 14 tallies. For the team itself, thanks to Smith’s two scores, it was the first time since December of 1929 that a Bruin has scored at least two or more goals in seven straight games. For Tuukka Rask, the 33-save shutout was enough to earn him his 20th win of the season, a milestone he has only hit once before in his NHL career.

Rask has never started more than 45 games in a season and is now responsible for the bulk of a full, normal campaign. If Rask gets injured or his play begins to slip, who’s there to back him up? An unproven goalie who only has AHL experience, albeit excellent, or a career minor-league journeyman who isn’t even seeing time in preseason games? It’s a little puzzling.
When the new CBA was agreed upon, announcing the end of the NHL lockout in January 2013, one of the big changes that would affect the 2013-14 season was a […]
With last season’s backup Anton Khudobin leaving for the Carolina Hurricanes, it certainly left a pretty big void in the Bruins’ goaltending corps. Khudobin played pretty well in relief of […]
