Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

After struggling through a stretch of five losses in six games sandwiched around the bye week and NHL All-Star Weekend, the Bruins had a couple of big, heavy and physical wins against tough Metro teams in Washington and the New York Islanders. The latest was Boston's 3-1 victory over the Isles on Tuesday night in Patrice Bergeron's 1,000th game as an NHL player -- a game that featured a visit from the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. More importantly, the Bruins put forth a rugged, playoff-style performance before an electrified crowd, including Brad Marchand getting in the face of Mat Barzal and limiting him to one of his worst games of the season, and an old school, spirited net-f...

Monday, February 4th, 2019

BRIGHTON, Mass. -- The Bruins know they've got a challenge cut out for for themselves after watching the New England Patriots capture their sixth Super Bowl title on Sunday, and -- oh by the way -- watching the Red Sox win the World Series last fall as well.
