The Bruins announced Thursday that they have sent defenseman Kevan Miller to Providence after he spent the last four games with the team. Miller made his NHL debut and played three games during his time up in Boston.

The B’s had to recall Miller last week due to injuries to Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid, but McQuaid’s return meant he was a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Red Wings.

When teams are playing well early on in the season, they want to sustain it. When they aren’t playing well, they want to be playing well by Thanksgiving, which, remember has served as something of a loose deadline for being in the playoff picture if you want to compete in the postseason. 

After Wednesday night’s loss, the Bruins might be a little bit of both.



There isn’t a turkey, Thanksgiving or Hanukkah quip that would accurately represent how bad the Bruins were Wednesday night in Detroit.

The Bruins probably shouldn't go into games any more hoping for solid 60-minute efforts. That would assume these games are only going to be 60 minutes. 

That has not been the case for six of their last 13 games, as the B's have gone into overtime regularly. Luckily for them, they're at least starting to avoid the shootout. 



Torey Krug one-upped Sidney Crosby‘s late heroics as the rookie defenseman netted the overtime winner in a 4-3 Bruins win Monday at TD Garden.

With the win, the B’s improved to 16-6-2 with a conference-leading 34 points. Tuukka Rask made 28 saves for his 13th win of the season.

Steven Stamkos had a rough time the last time he was in Boston, as he broke his tibia in the second period of a Lightning loss on Nov. 11 and had to stay in town to get surgery.

Dennis Seidenberg skated Monday morning and joined his teammates for part of the Bruins’ morning skate. It marked the first time he has skated since suffering a lower-body injury last Tuesday against the Rangers.

The second period of Saturday's game was positively a laugh riot. The Bruins were outshooting and out-everything-ing the Hurricanes. There was even a guy dressed as Jesus in the stands. Really crazy stuff over at TD Garden. 



The Bruins let the Hurricanes hang around in a game they had no business being in, but the B’s got away with a 3-2 overtime win thanks to a David Krejci goal off a feed from Jarome Iginla.

The goal was Krejci’s first point in six games and improved the B’s to an Eastern Conference-best 32 points on the season.

Carolina came back to tie the game in the third period on a Patrick Dwyer shorthanded goal off a Milan Lucic turnover, sending the game into overtime despite the fact that the B’s had carried the play through the first 40 minutes.

After Carl Soderberg took eight faceoffs in the Bruins’ 3-2 shootout loss to the Blues, B’s coach Claude Julien revealed that Soderberg’s faceoff duties are increasing due to a minor injury to Chris Kelly.
