  1. Puck bounces off Lucic into Boston net, lead down to 2-1

    Mar 21, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So, the other day, I discussed the fact that Chris Drury should thank his “immature” teammates for carrying his dead weight. Well, 19 year old defenseman Mike Del Zotto sent a seeing eye slapper from the point which then deflected off of Bruins winger Milan Lucic and past Tukka Rask for the Rangers’ first goal…

  2. Wideman's bodacious backhand gives Bruins 2-0 lead

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Dennis Wideman has gotten his fair share of criticism from various sources (PHT included) but he had quite the nice series to make the game 2-0 for Boston. First, he fought off some tenacious checking in his own zone to dangerously move the puck out of his zone. Then he played some aggressive hockey, received…

  3. Satan makes it 1-0 Boston

    A lot of times, one team will dominate a game for a considerable amount of time only to fall behind after failing to score. This didn’t happen so far, though, as the Bruins were finally rewarded for their superior effort with a late second period goal. Right after Daniel Paille failed to score on a…

  4. Video: Prospal's hit

    I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised that another questionable hit happened. In this case, Vinny Prospal is guilty of a hit from behind that resulted in a boarding penalty. As I said in the chat, it’s shocking that the Bruins received a match penalty for the play. If the league wants to curb these…

  7. Can the Bruins lowly offense bring success in the playoffs?

I know it’s tough to do, but it’s something that is key to winning games that the Boston Bruins are having major problems actually doing: scoring goals.…

  8. NHL playoffs standings update: Phoenix eyes top spot

    We’re getting near the part of the season where every game involves a heavy dose of scoreboard watching. Teams not only need their two points, but some help from other teams to either grab a playoff spot or take a better playoff position headed into the post season. We’re going to start updating the playoff…

  9. Goals of the night: 2 game winning buzzer-beaters

    Mar 21, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    There were a lot of great moments in Saturday’s games, but I’ll try to focus on just the two most important goals. First, let’s take a look at Jamie McBain’s OT GWG for Carolina against Pittsburgh, which came with only 0.9 seconds remaining in the extra period. (Quick note: my inner-pun headline writer urges someone to…

  10. Save of the Night: Bryzgalov robs Kane

    Mar 21, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Look, it’s quite possible that there was a better save than this tonight. I mean, I doubt it, but there could be. Sometimes you can’t help but have one moment stick with you and this save did just that. It was one of those saves (or failed goals?) that made me feel like my brain…

  11. Fight of the Night: 3 minutes of scary fisticuffs

    Mar 21, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Man, this clip is just disturbing. Deep down, many of us wish that we could be in the skates of our favorite hockey players, but when I see stuff like this I have my doubts. Seriously, if either Cam Janssen and Pierre-Luc Leblond were to hit me like that I would just bleed and cry.…

  12. Notes from 'Hot Stove': Boston's locker room poison

    Normally I wouldn’t post so late, but Chris Kontos of The Royal Half passed along this video of Glen Healy on Hockey Night in Canada, which also included an interesting nugget from Pierre LeBrun on the Phoenix Coyotes ownership situation. First, let’s touch on Healy’s comments. Healy said that the locker room was “poisonous” and that they have…

  13. Future could be bright for Bruins (cap analysis)

    Mar 20, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    The Boston Bruins are in a situation quite a bit like Anaheim’s: they have some assets that can turn their middling roster into a serious contender. Unfortunately, they don’t have anything near the Ducks’ talented young troika (instead, their roster is full of slightly problematic deals). The good news, though, is that they’ve stockpiled some…

  14. Quick hits: Be desperate, but don't panic

    Let’s take a look at some assorted news items from around the NHL today. Apparently, the St. Louis Blues may consider bringing back Paul Kariya, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Really, they want to bring back the guy who did so little to earn a three-year, $18 million contract? Then again, team president John Davidson…

  15. The Rangers' 2010-11 salary cap situation

    Mar 20, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    New York Rangers GM Glen Sather can often be a walking punchline. He gave superstar contracts to decidedly normal players such as Bobby Holik and Chris Drury. Few will forget the draft blunder that was Hugh Jessiman. Still, there might be some faint signs of competence in the last year of so. After somehow tricking the…

  16. Is Martin Brodeur the best passing goalie ever?

    Mar 20, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Martin Brodeur’s amazing breakout pass-turned-assist (jump for the video) made me wonder if he is the best ever at moving the puck. Apparently it really got into the head of Phillip Myrland from Puck Prospectus, though, because he provided a fantastic rundown of the goalies who have been the best at setting up offense. “Martin Brodeur is…

  17. Contract years swindled Boston Bruins

    Mar 20, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Last season, the Boston Bruins were one of the league’s true surprise teams. Simply put, they were on fire at times, getting plenty of good bounces and more than a few career seasons from its players. It was a perfect storm of contract years and good fortune that – clearly – has proven to be…

    Just a few days after receiving a hit to the head that drew an 8-game suspension for former teammate James Wisniewski, it looks like Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook is starting to recover from possible concussion symptoms. Chris Kuc has the story. “I worked out (Thursday night) and felt good and felt good enough to skate (Friday)…
