From Austria to Boston, Marty Turco fell down the proverbial rabbit hole last spring in an effort to swoop in and help the Bruins in the aftermath of Tuukka Rask’s injury.
As soon as he arrived in a deadline-day trade from Minnesota, Greg Zanon looked like a Bruins-type player.
That he didn’t win a championship in Boston and left the Bruins’ organization amidst some major acrimony might’ve blurred Adam Oates’ career in black and gold to observers over the years.
Few Bruins players conquered the Stanley Cup hangover better than Dennis Seidenberg.
And the veteran defenseman had more to overcome than nearly all of his other teammates considering his 27:37 of ice time per game in the run to the 2011 Cup championship was second only to Zdeno Chara, and by just two seconds.
A little earlier than in past summers the Bruins’ top prospects and some invitees will be in Wilmington, Mass. starting Thursday for the team’s annual development camp at Ristuccia Arena.
The camp will run through Monday July 2.
The second day of the draft saw the Bruins use five picks, including one acquired in a draft-day trade with Tampa Bay, to select would-be prospects in Pittsburgh today.
Headlining the group was Charlestown, Mass., native Matt Grzelcyk, whose father actually works on the bull gang at TD Garden.
The Bruins thought that with the right coaching, structure and more of a role on their team Benoit Pouliot would finally blossom.
Today they ended their ties with the former No. 4 overall draft pick by dealing his rights to Tampa Bay.
For the first time since 2002, the Bruins have used their first-round pick on a goaltender.
If that wasn’t enough of a surprise tonight, he’s also the brother of hated Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban.
The 2012 NHL Draft in Pittsburgh is supposed to be focused on the future of the league.
However, one story of a veteran won’t stop moving forward and taking wild and wooly turns. I write, of course, about the travails of Tim Thomas.
The NHL today released its complete regular-season schedule for the 2012-13 regular season.
The Bruins are scheduled to open in Philadelphia on Thursday, Oct. 11. They will play their home opener one week later on Oct. 18 against Montreal.
Just as the Bruins hoped, added playing time and responsibility combined with Tyler Seguin’s natural-born talents to create an offensive force in the forward’s second NHL season.
Patrice Bergeron and the writers that vote for the Selke Trophy made sure that the Bruins’ 2011-12 season earned at least one accolade.
While he would definitely trade it for at least a Game 7 win over Washington, Bergeron won the award for the league’s best defensive forward, it was announced in Las Vegas tonight.
It hasn’t quite matched the excitement of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this summer, but the Bruins are celebrating the arrival of their future in the goaltending department.
It’s finally time for Patrice Bergeron to have the spotlight to himself.
He won’t want it, mind you.
The Ottawa Senators know they have something special in defenseman Erik Karlsson. So that’s why they wasted little time in making sure the blueliner will be with them for the rest of this decade.
