Boston Bruins Information
Wed Apr. 13 - Well that'll do it. The Bruins picked up a huge 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday, but got blown out 6-1 in their season finale to Ottawa and were eliminated from playoff contention. The Bruins team that takes the ice in October will look a lot different from the one that left the ice on Saturday following its second major late-season collapse in as many seasons. The team finished its season at 42-31-9, missing the playoffs by a sheer tiebreaker on regulation/overtime wins to Detroit. It's easy to look back at a number of missed opportunities for the Bruins this season, but winning just three of their last 12 games down the stretch, the Bruins appeared to have the playoffs wrapped up, but how quickly that changed. The rumor mills are already swirling, and the biggest offseason story will be whether head coach Claude Julien returns behind the Boston bench in 2016.
Wed Apr. 6 - Major panic mode has begun for Bruins fans across New England, as the team no longer controls its own destiny in the race for the final Atlantic Division playoff spot. A matchup with the Detroit Red Wings, with whom they're currently tied for the aforementioned playoff spot, in the season's penultimate game on Thursday night will serve as essentially a regular season game seven, with the winner more than likely the team to come out on top in the race for third.
Wed Mar. 30 - Losers of six of their last seven, the Bruins are suddenly in a major race to the finish line with the Detroit Red Wings for the third and final Atlantic Division playoff spot and the Philadelphia Flyers for the final Wild Card spot should they fall behind the Red Wings. A tough weekend slate with St. Louis Blues and Chicago lies ahead for the Bruins.
Wed Mar. 23 - The Bruins struggled in their three-game California road trip last week, dropping all three games, and now find themselves three points back of Tampa Bay and Florida, who are tied for the division lead. A Thursday night home game against the Panthers looms large for the Bruins in the week ahead.
Wed Mar. 16 - The Bruins suffered a tough 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks to kick off a four game road trip on Tuesday night, but at 39-24-8, are right in the hunt in the Atlantic Division, one point behind the Florida Panthers.
Wed Mar. 2 - The Bruins added veteran experience at the trade deadline on Monday with winger Lee Stempniak and defenseman John-Michael Liles, and the team is starting to click. Having won three of their last four, the Bruins sit at 35-23-6, good for third in the Atlantic Division.
Wed Feb. 24 - The Bruins are struggling for consistency in their recent stretch, and are now clinging to a Wild Card spot with 60 games played on the season. They take the ice tonight against an injury-depleted Pittsburgh Penguins.
Wed Feb. 17 - The Bruins have won three of four games on the current six-game road trip despite no more than average efforts. With 68 points, the Bruins are up to second in the Atlantic Division standings, but will need to start winning some games against playoff-bound teams if they want to be serious Stanley Cup contenders.
Wed Feb. 10 - After suffering a humiliating 9-2 loss at home to the LA Kings on Tuesday night, the Bruins will be looking for answers as they depart on a season-long six game road trip, which kicks off Thursday night in Winnipeg. At 28-19-6, the Bruins find themselves in the exact same spot as they were last week, in a three-way tie for second place in the Atlantic Division.
Wed Feb. 3 - At 26-18-6, the Bruins find themselves in a three-way tie for second place in the Atlantic Division. A tough loss to Toronto in overtime last night has them off on the wrong foot to start the season’s second half, but an upcoming home-and-home series against the struggling Sabres gives Boston a great chance to right the ship.
Mon Dec. 21 - The Bruins are 19-9-4 on the season and 6-1-3 in their last 10 games. The Bruins will host the Blues on 12/22 at the TD Garden.
Mon Dec. 7 - The Bruins are 14-8-3 on the season and 7-1-2 in their last 10 games. The Bruins will host the Predators tonight at the TD Garden.

Brief History of the Boston Bruins
The Boston Bruins are members of the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference. The team is the league's oldest team in the United States having been in existence since 1924. The Bruins also join the Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Montreal Canadiens as an Original Six franchise. The team has won twenty-four Division championships and three Conference championships. They have also won six Stanley Cup championships which is the fifth most of all-time and the second most of any American NHL team.
The Bruins were quite successful in the 20th century, obtaining a Division championship nineteen times, a Conference championship twice and a Stanley Cup five times. Famous players such as Tommy Williams, Bobby Orr, Terry O'Reilly, Ray Bourque and Cam Neely led the team to their successes and multiple championship wins. The team created bitter rivals with the Montreal Canadiens and the Philadelphia Flyers throughout the years that are still in existence today.
After the turn of the century, the Bruin's hadn't given anyone much to talk about until 2010. Up until then, the team didn't win any Stanley Cups or Conference championships. They only won three Division championships. Then, in 2010, things changed for the Bruins. They won the 2010 NHL Winter Classic over the Philadelphia Flyers. The team went on to place sixth in the NHL Eastern Conference and made a playoff opening round appearance against the Buffalo Sabres. They won this game 4-2 but ultimately were eliminated by the Philadelphia Flyers.
Then, in the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs, the Bruins became the first team in NHL history to win a 7-game series without scoring a power-play goal when they eliminated the Montreal Canadiends in 7 games. They also won their first playoff series after trailing 2 games to none. The Bruins then advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 1992 after beating the Philadelphia Flyers in four games. In seven games the team defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1990. Here they faced the Vancouver Canucks and ultimately beat them, wining the sixth Stanley Cup in franchise history and breaking a 39-year Cup drought. This was the first team in NHL history to win a Game 7 three times in the same playoff run.
