The Bruins offense has been futile as of late, scoring just 10 goals since St. Patrick’s day. Wednesday night saw the Bruins offense come alive but in the end of regulation a thoughtless penalty would end up costing the Bruins the game and first place in the Northeast Division as Montreal beat Boston 6-5 in a shootout.

Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara will not be disciplined for his hit on LW Max Pacioretty during Boston’s 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday at the Garden. The 12-year veteran defenseman is relieved to be lifted from any kind of suspension, but his greatest concern remains with the health of his rival opponent. “I feel bad that he got hurt, as a hockey player we all feel bad when something like that happens,” said Chara. “Doesn’t matter if it’s the home team or the visiting team. I’m wishing him a fast recovery so that he can get back on the ice soon. That’s all we like to do, is play hockey.”
The Bruins are currently behind the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals in the Eastern Conference at 38-20-8 with 16 games left on their regular season schedule. They are next scheduled to host the Buffalo Sabres tonight before hitting the road to face off against the New York Islanders and Columbus Blue Jackets this weekend.

The Boston Bruins recently made a few roster adjustments following their return from the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. The Bruins were able to pick up Dennis Seidenberg and Matthew Bartkowski from the Florida Panthers for Byron Bitz and Craig Weller. The Anaheim Ducks sent Steve Kampfer to Boston for a fourth-round draft pick. Lastly, the B’s reached a deal with the Edmonton Oilers, trading Matt Marquardt for Cody Wild. The NHL trade deadline is 3:00 PM this afternoon.
In their first game at the Garden since the break, the Bruins found themselves struggling in the third period of play. The defense ended up allowing four goals through the block, resulting in a 4-1 Montreal Canadiens victory. “You could tell we hadn’t played in a couple of weeks,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “Somehow, we started to fade after they scored that first goal.”
Boston is now 27-23-11 heading into Thursday’s contest against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Make sure to purchase your Boston Bruins tickets as they fight to solidify their playoff spot in the home stretch of the regular season!
Marco Sturm came through with a pair of goals to help the Boston Bruins post their first W in 10 games over the Montreal Canadiens Sunday at the Bell Centre in Quebec. Tuuka Rask collected 35 saves to hold Montreal scoreless through all three blocks. “It’s always easier to have a two-goal than a one-goal lead,” said Rask. “If I sleep, it’s going to be on the scoreboard right away so you try be as sharp as possible.”
Adam McQuaid scored his first career NHL goal 17:32 into the initial period. Sturm followed up just before the start of the second to gain the extra advantage. The contest didn’t feature another score until Sturm found the net again with 10 minutes left in regulation. The Bruins will next face off against the Buffalo Sabres tomorrow night as the Canadiens prepare to host the Washington Capitals on Wednesday.
The Boston Bruins avoided their third consecutive scoreless game with a Patrice Bergeron goal with just seconds remaining to test the Montreal Canadiens in overtime last night at the TD Garden. The shootout featured just one goal produced by Mike Cammalleri for the Habs to take this one 2-1. The Bruins have come up with just 11 goals collectively in their nine losses.
Players were definitely relieved to at least get on the board after a pair of dismal performances against the New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings. “At least it’s out of our heads now,” said Bergeron. “It’s one step forward to get that goal and get that point. But one point is not good enough.” Bergeron first found a way past goalie Carey Price with 2:25 left in the second period. The score was then taken away minutes later after review.
“In my head there was a moment where you go, ‘That figures,’” said Tim Thomas. “But then the other voice in my head rebounded right away and said, ‘No. We’re not going to say Here we go again. We’ve got to do something.’ I was trying to send some positive mental energy to the team to do something.”
Boston will now look forward to their next matchup against the Buffalo Sabres this Saturday at 7:00 PM. Boston Bruins tickets are now available!
