The Boston Bruins: known worldwide as one of the National Hockey League’s Original Six…except they didn’t actually come along until seven years after the league began play. There were also only four teams in the NHL’s original iteration. Whatever. We’ll gloss over that. The Boston Bruins: known worldwide for their classic, Spoked-B logo…except that this

There’s no question who owns the crease at the TD Garden. Tuukka Rask has rightfully earned the spot as Boston’s number one netminder, and has been one of the NHL’s most effective goaltenders night in and night out since earning that role. However, there is a bit of uncertainty regarding who will fill the pipes

It’s been over a month since negotiations began and the Boston Bruins have yet to sign David Pastrnak to a contract. The 21-year-old is fresh off his first full NHL season, and it sure was an impressive one. Pastrnak’s 2016-17 campaign featured 34 goals and 70 points in 75 regular season appearances. He topped off

What a mess. Despite an era of tremendous success, the city of Boston continues to find drama and things to gripe about. Since the turn of the century, Boston has celebrated 10 championships across all four major sports. Four additional times the city has seen one of its teams come up just short, falling in

Boston Bruins fans are a unique breed. They are passionate, outspoken and often irrationally excitable. As such, there is an unfair amount of pressure on a player’s first impression and expectations are usually high. Here are four Bruins who are likely to disappoint fans this coming season based on their anticipated production. 1. Charlie McAvoy

Coming into the offseason, the Boston Bruins had a couple of weak points that needed to be addressed prior to the 2017-18 season. Some of those points have been taken care of. They agreed to terms with Ryan Spooner (though his future in Boston remains uncertain), added some defensive depth with Paul Postma and locked

Not too long ago, people in the United States of America celebrated their 241st year of independence from British rule with traditional firework displays.

Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney has been justifiably panned since taking over two offseasons ago. In each of the two previous free agency periods, he’s shelled out money to sign a top available forward. This time, he’s taken a different tack. The Bruins have done nothing of note so far — and that’s a good

As mentioned in this article’s companion piece (which you can find here), the Boston Bruins have come out on the winning end of several of the most lopsided trades in NHL history.

David Pastrnak is a fan-favorite in Boston, and there is no shortage of reasons why. For starters, Pastrnak put up 34 goals and 70 points through 75 games during the 2016-17 campaign – his first full season in the NHL. He registered a shooting percentage of 13% during that time, averaging a second short of

The Boston Bruins have been oft-maligned in recent years regarding their personnel decisions, particularly on the trade front.

The Boston Bruins can scratch one restricted free agent off of their “To Do” list. Noel Acciari inked a two-year, one way contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, and though his re-signing with the club likely raised few (if any) eyebrows, the salary and nature of the deal are a pleasant surprise. His $725,000 cap hit
