BOSTON — Bruins head coach Claude Julien revealed Thursday morning that rookie Malcolm Subban will start the preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden.
The Bruins enter Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday at TD Garden with a 7-2 record in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
They hope to continue their solid play in front of the faithful and grab a series lead on the Chicago Blackhawks by riding the energy of the crowd.
BOSTON — The Bruins lead the Penguins, 2-0, heading into Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final at TD Garden Wednesday.
Feel free to post you comments below.
PITTSBURGH – This is why you need to have Andrew Ference in your lineup.
No, not just because he led the rush up ice and then drove the net to help set up what proved to be the game-winning goal by David Krejci 8:23 into Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals Saturday night at CONSOL Energy Center.
The number of times people have counted out Boston Red Sox star designated hitter David Ortiz are too many to count.
Other than this season, Ortiz seemingly started the year in a terrible slump that sent everyone headed for the closest microphone or telephone to declare he should be traded, released retired every season.
Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask fell down, and you wanted to laugh.
It’s just that Carl Hagelin’s goal that crossed the line Thursday in New York while Rask was on his rear end breathed life into the New York Rangers, who went on to an overtime win that pushed the Eastern Conference Semifinals to a Game 5.
Did the Bruins get caught with dreams of Penguins in their heads?
It sure looked that way when you add up all the mental mistakes they made en route to an overtime loss to the New York Rangers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Thursday.
Luckily for Dennis Seidenberg, he has one more season left on his contract with the Bruins.
Because without even hitting the ice in the Bruins’ Eastern Conference Semifinals series with the New York Rangers, the defenseman’s value has dropped in the eyes of many observers.
No one does more with less than the Bruins’ energy line.
Case in point, Shawn Thornton, who has taken two faceoffs in the Eastern Conference Semifinals series with the New York Rangers has won both of them.
Bruins didn’t have to look too far back into history to know that a solid Game 1 win wouldn’t easily translate into a Game 2 victory.
After lighting the world on fire in Game 1 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against Toronto just a couple weeks ago, the Bruins let the Maple Leafs rolls over them with a mistake-filled game in Game 2.
If any of Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference and Wade Redden return to health and get back in the Bruins’ lineup, the odds are that Torey Krug will find himself in the press box or back on the farm with Providence of the AHL.
Nonetheless, one game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs proved one thing about Krug’s future with the Bruins or anywhere in the NHL: he at worst has a career as a power-play specialist.
Brad Marchand loves to chirp opposing players.
Unfortunately for him, the New York Rangers don’t have too many players that share that hobby. And even if they did, Marchand says the referees in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs have been quick to threaten 10-minute misconducts at the slightest hint of trash talk.
The euphoria of the Bruins’ seven-game triumph against the Toronto Maple Leafs hasn’t completely left the dressing room at TD Garden.
But three days since Boston rallied from three goals down to beat the Maple Leafs and advance to the series that starts Thursday night against the New York Rangers, the Bruins are just about ready to point their attentions to the future from the past.
With all due respect to the once famous “Sheriff” from Winnipeg, Shane Hnidy was a major drop-off for the Bruins by the time he returned to the team to add depth to the defense corps for the 2011 run to the Stanley Cup championship.
