  • Chara may return to Bruins in 10 to 14 days

    CSN New England "The first reason for encouragement was Zdeno Chara skating on his own on Monday morning for the first time in over a month after tearing the PCL in his left knee.

  • Fleury collects career win No. 300 in crucial game against Bruins

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "If Marc-Andre Fleury, for whatever reason, planned to stop any more hockey pucks late Monday night, chances are the results would have been disastrous.

  • Chara back on skates for first time since knee injury

    CSN New England "In perhaps the best Bruins news in weeks, Zdeno Chara was spotted skating on the TD Garden ice Monday for the first time since tearing the PCL in his left knee at the end of October.

  • Julien: ‘It almost takes a perfect game’ for Bruins to win

    Pro Hockey Talk "Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien seemed pretty happy with his team’s effort after a 2-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

    Bruins players didn't like Dalton Prout punch to Milan Lucic who didn't drop his glove. Lucic will be in warm-up and should play tonight.

  • Young Bruins D-men ready to accept challenge

    CSN New England "It will be an interesting stretch for the Boston Bruins as they head into some big games against quality opponents with a defense that’s ridiculously young and inexperienced, a recipe that can be problematic for an NHL team. Dennis Seidenberg will be the unquestioned old man on the block and..." November 21

  • Bruins, Julien continue to be tested by injuries "The Bruins are in the midst of a season-long injury plague, and there are no signs of it ending anytime soon. Injuries to key players have hampered the team’s success, but somehow the Bruins continue to find ways to win. They’ve struggled with inconsistency the entire season, and there’s only..."

  • Bruins have options despite McQuaid's injury

  • Bruins beat Blues, 2-0, in Krejci's return

    CSN New England "The Bruins went into the game missing another player with Brad Marchand unable to play, and lost Adam McQuaid two shifts into the second period when he took a shot off his right hand.

  • Adam McQuaid Out 6-8 Weeks With Broken Thumb "Boston Bruins General Manager announced today, November 19, that defenseman Adam McQuaid will be out six to eight weeks with a broken thumb. The injury was sustained on November 18, during the Bruins/Blues game at TD Garden. " November 19

  • Leafs hand Bruins 6-1 beating

    Toronto Sun "Phil Kessel’s five-year goal rush with the Maple Leafs has one obvious blight. A severe lack of regular season red lights triggered against his former team, the Boston Bruins.

  • Lucic plans to rise above the boos in Montreal

    ESPN Boston "After being embarrassed by the Toronto Maple Leafs, 6-1, on Wednesday night at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, the Boston Bruins have a chance to rebound Thursday against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre in Montreal. But speaking of embarrassing, the last time Boston visited Montreal,..." November 13

  • Young Bruins preparing for big divisional trip

    CSN New England "Joe Morrow is a good Alberta boy, so he’s certainly watched his share of Hockey Night in Canada over his lifetime. The Bruins rookie defenseman has watched plenty of NHL games played in Toronto and Montreal on television, but now he’ll get his chance to jump off the screen and onto the ice in..." November 12

  • Bruins get past the Devils

    Boston Herald "Blemishes may have been clearly visible in each game of the Bruins’ just completed four-game run at home, but the fact is the B’s simply did what they had to do to get their job done.

The..." November 07

  • Bruins Take Advantage of Third Period Power Plays in Win Over Oilers

    Boston "After two early whistles negated what would have been goals, it seemed as if the Bruins were headed for a very frustrating loss at the hands of the Edmonton Oilers.

  • Krejci making progress, won't play 'if there's any doubt'

    CSN New England "David Krejci looked good skating at the beginning of Bruins practice at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday in a black jersey, but then exited the ice once actual drills got underway with the healthy group.

  • Chara won't rule out surgery on injured knee

    CSN New England "Zdeno Chara had missed only 20 games in his first eight years with the Bruins, so he's not very used to being idle. Thus it was no surprise that the 6-foot-9 defenseman was out in the TD Garden hallway Tuesday with a bulky brace on his knee, stickhandling a puck. He was ignoring the obvious..." November 05

  • Report: Bruins may be nearing a decision on Pastrnak's future

    Stanley Cup Of Chowder "According to a blog post from over in Sweden, the team will be deciding on Pastrnak's immediate future in the coming weeks.

  • Bruins’ Julien is ‘still very hungry to win another Stanley Cup’

    Pro Hockey Talk "Few NHL coaches enjoy the success and job security that Claude Julien’s managed with the Boston Bruins. He’s currently in his eighth season behind the B’s bench, and with a multi-year contract confirmed, he could very well be this team’s head coach for more than a decade.* Even with rare job..."

    Boston Bruins @NHLBruins

    Krejci not playing tonight, per Julien. They're not expecting it to be a major issue; expecting him to be back soon ^CS

  • Bruins best Senators

    Boston Herald "A common theme for the Bruins as they try to sort out their early-season problems: The best players need to be the their best players. This, obviously, is true for any team. But it’s also mighty nice for a team when the last guy on its roster steps up and is the best player. In this case,..." November 02

  • Bruins confirm Julien’s extension

    Pro Hockey Talk "The Boston Bruins confirmed that they’ve signed head coach Claude Julien to a contract extension. While reports indicated that it’s a three-year deal, Boston merely deems it a “multi-year contract.” (The NHL: where teams are needlessly opaque about more than just injuries.) It’s easy to..."

  • Bruins score OT win over Sabres

    Boston Herald "Give credit to the desperate Sabres for a good effort. But the Bruins’s badly wanted — and expected — to win.

  • Marchand suffers 'tweak,' may miss Thursday's game

    CSN New England "The Bruins coaching staff opted to switch things up Wednesday morning at Ristuccia Arena after watching Tuesday night’s third-period horror show, but their new-look lines weren't together very long before the team suffered yet another injury. Brad Marchand left the ice during practice on..." October 30

  • Stumbling Bruins need to adopt a greater sense of urgency

    CSN New England "It may be early in the season, but it's time for the Bruins to adapt a greater sense of urgency. An uncharacteristic 4-3 loss to the Wild on Tuesday, in which they blew a 3-1, third-period lead, has dropped them back to one game under .500. At 5-6, they're currently tied with a number of teams..." October 29

  • Wild posts comeback victory over Boston

    Minneapolis Star Tribune "One hour before the Wild had to put Monday’s Madison Square Garden meltdown officially in the rearview mirror, Zach Parise said it was imperative for the Wild to know that “mentally if you’re in the right place” Monday’s 3-0 blown third-period lead should have no impact on Tuesday’s game against..." October 29

  • Bruins D Torey Krug sidelined 2-3 weeks with broken finger "If there was one area where the Boston Bruins couldn't really afford another injury, it was to their defense.

  • Bruins are smart to reject Sabres' asking price for Stewart

    CSN New England "It’s well established the Bruins have some level of interest in rugged Sabres right winger Chris Stewart.

  • Bruins rake Maple Leafs

    Boston Herald "At least the Bruins know they still can beat the Toronto Maple Leafs rather handily.

October 26

  • Ottawa tragedy ‘hit home’ for Bruins’ Julien

    Pro Hockey Talk "Coaches generally aren’t in a rush to get off the ice following a practice; however, on Wednesday morning Bruins’ coach Claude Julien had an important phone call to make following his team’s skate in Boston.

  • Providence pair up for Zdeno Chara's spot

    Boston Herald "Whether it’s Zach Trotman or Joe Morrow who gets the call tonight for the Bruins against the Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre — perhaps even both will — a great challenge and a great opportunity await.
