On shoot-outs, the team has this thing called "practice". At practice, they occasionally practice shootout attempts. Julien, at least in part, chooses his shooters based on how players are doing the more »

Another game against a team they are in direct contention with for a playoff spot, another regulation win. I could get used to this.

I hope that missed more than it hit.

Be wary of the recently wounded. I expect the Bolts will come out pushing hard tonight. The Bruins will either need to push back harder, or weather the storm (Ha Ha) and let their legs win in the th more »

I think they might be trying to drive fans away from it.

In response to bostonfan191646's comment: Okay just to clarify things here, he's in the first year of his entry level deal. There is no going back. It's been used. Short of inventing a time machine th more »

With respect to the 10 game thing, there was an article on bruins.com explaining that they wanted to give him a four game look now then decide if they will hit number ten and use a year of his EL deal more »

Does that mean Yandle is a Kaberle-level obession for Chiarelli? Or just for local sports writers?

The Bruins caught a good amount of luck (for once!), but also played a tough game against a team well ahead of them in standings. I'll take it. So ends the Griffith era. Onward, Pasternak! -- Proud more »

One of those games. But in reverse.

I don't think I've seen pucks bounce off the backs of opposing players so many times in one game, let alone one period and change.

In response to goodnewsbears' comment: According to twitter: @HackswithHaggs: Claude Julien said Pastrnak wont play tonight because they want to get 4 good opportunities to evaluate him in gms. Back-t more »

The conclusion of that article is that Kessel is inconsistent - but no worse than any other scoring-first player. That really should put into perspective complaints about the consistency of forwards more »

With respect to no Eriksson with Krejci, here are two attempts at getting into Julien's head on the matter: I don't trust that Soderberg, I need two defensively aware players with him. I'll keep Eriks more »

They've pushed so far into Savard's LTIR that they had to place Chara on LTIR just to call up Caron and Lindblad once.

I think every forward gets caught on it, sometimes because the pass to them looks like it is moving through molasses. I think the D are supposed to watch for the risk there and skate it out or use ot more »

Because the Bruins have been into LTIR space all season, the season being half over doesn't help them fit contracts. No banked space . With capgeek gone, I have to go by memory one this, but I think more »

There is much fear in this team.
Posted 01/02/2015 06:16:51 EST
So far as I recall, the only contract related issue with Pasternak is him playing 41 games this season would cause him to reach UFA status a year sooner. Is that right? I was ignoring my kids at the more »

I almost wonder if some GM wanted Fraser for his AHL squad, and insisted he clear waivers before trading.

The Jekyll and Hyde routine is nothing new to this team. It's a head-scratcher why this happens so often. They could sure use a nice stretch if Mr Hyde right now. -- Proud user of Chambraigne; Now w more »

It's amusing how often an NHL team that suddenly finds itself short due to injuries rallies and puts in a solid game. I'll take beating a team they are chasing in the standings as that game; making i more »

Bummer, Providence could have used the goals.

There have been plenty pratfalls this season. So... the equipment manager should be the new scapegoat?
