Dear, Nathan Horton: You may have brought shiny things home to us (The Stanley Cup is better than any engagement ring), but we are finally over our three-year relationship. In fact, we totally dig our new right-wing replacement, Jarome Iginla—and David Krejci and Milan Lucic have great top-line chemistry with him as well. Sincerely, Boston and fellow Bruins’ fans.

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.

Tomas Plekanec fired one in his own net on a corner face-off but made up for it by scoring the tiebreaker with 9:14 left in the third period to lift his Montreal Canadiens past the Boston Bruins 2-1 last night at TD Garden. (more)
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!
