Only a week removed from their 4-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers at TD Garden, the Boston Bruins were set for game two of their Western Canadian road trip, heading north from Calgary to Edmonton on the second half of back-to-back games. After suffering a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Flames Wednesday night, the B’s were looking for a bounce-back performance Thursday against an Oilers team they had handled with ease only seven days prior.
Having put opening night's disaster behind them the Boston Bruins have since responded with two solid wins. At 2-1 on the young season the Bruins welcome the Edmonton Oilers to TD Garden for their second home game. The Oilers, coming off a 5-2 loss to the Devils in Sweden, look to get their first win on the season. Jarsoslav Halak would draw his second start of the season opposite of Oilers' starter Cam Talbot
Looking to build off Thursday's 4-0 win in Buffalo the Bruins returned to TD Garden for their home opener against the rebuilding Ottawa Senators.
After a disappointing 7-0 loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals Wednesday night, the Boston Bruins were right back in action Thursday as they traveled to Buffalo to open the Sabres season at KeyBank Arena.
It wasn’t much of a surprise when the Washington Capitals came out to a strong start in their season opener Wednesday night. After a lengthy banner-raising ceremony that left the Bruins sitting in the locker room for over half an hour between pregame warmups and puck drop, the B’s came out sluggish in their season debut and paid the price heavily.
The NHL season was exactly a week away Wednesday night as the Boston Bruins hosted the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden. While fans across the league have been itching to see meaningful hockey games that count on the score sheet, a young Bruins squad couldn’t set their sights too far ahead with the Red Wings on deck and the Philadelphia Flyers coming to town for a weekend meetup.
While its not John Tavares the Bruins did do some work on July 1st signing former Islanders Chris Wagner and Jaroslav Halak to contracts. Wagner, a Walpole MA native, will provide grit and physicality to the Bruins bottom six and with the Bruins losing Tim Schaller it could be an ideal replacement on the fourth line. Halak meanwhile addresses a much bigger need for the Bruins and that's backup goaltending. With Anton Khudobin heading to Dallas Don Sweeney took advantage of the market and quickly scooped up Halak. With that lets take a deeper dive into the two newest members of your Boston Bruins.
The 2018 Boston Bruins Development Camp featured a mix of returning players, new draft picks and invitees. A few from each category stood out to me in my time at camp, and while one can only speculate now as to how these players may perform against more elite competition down the line, there were certainly some players to be hopeful for.
Its been little more than a year since the Ottawa Senators were just a goal away from the Stanley Cup Finals. Taking the defending champion Penguins to a game seven the Senators were oh so close until Chris Kunitz fired a shot past Craig Anderson in double overtime, clinching the series and ending the magical run. While many pundits projected the Senators to not reach the same kind of post season success very few in the hockey world envisioned it being as bad as it was. The Senators went from 98 points to 67 points finishing second to last in the Atlantic division standings and 30 points out of the last wild card spot in the conference. A team that was one shot, one goal away, from a championship series appearance finished near dead last the year after. How the heck did this happen?
The Boston Bruins have been off the ice for nearly a month, and their loyal fans have already begun taking their best guesses as to how the team will be configured come fall.
