According to a tweet from ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, Bruins forward Brad Marchand has a disciplinary hearing scheduled for Thursday morning. The subject of the hearing will be Marchand's hit on Blue Jackets forward R.J. Umberger in the second period of the B's 3-2 shootout victory in Columbus Tuesday night (to view the hit, click here). 

 

The Bruins ended their four-game skid in dramatic fashion on Tuesday, requiring a shorthanded tally from Rich Peverley, as well as big saves from both Tuukka Rask and Tomas Kaberle just to get the game to overtime. It ultimately ended with Rask and Tyler Seguin starring in a shootout, and the end result was a 3-2 win in Columbus (recap).



Tyler Seguin was given just 9:57 of ice time Tuesday night, but he co-starred with Tuukka Rask in a 3-2 shootout victory over the Blue Jackets that ended a four-game losing streak. 

 

The Bruins assigned defenseman Matt Bartkowski to Providence of the American Hockey League Saturday. The 22-year-old has appeared in six games with the Bruins this season, compiling no points and four penalty minutes. His latest stint with the B's was his third of the season, having been most recently recalled from Providence on March 4. 

 

What a difference a week makes.  



It took exactly six minutes for the Bruins to see a 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 deficit against the Islanders Friday night at Nassau Coliseum, and an awarded empty-netter made it a 4-2 Islanders victory. The Bruins remain winless in their last four games (0-2-2).

 

Here’s a sentence that wasn’t a leading candidate to exist two days ago:

Zdeno Chara got a raw deal.



Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty was very upset when he learned that the NHL decided against suspending Zdeno Chara, but he made sure Thursday night that people knew he is not in favor of a criminal investigation.

 

Following Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres, Zdeno Chara said he was relieved to be back playing and appreciated the words earlier in the day from Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty that the Bruins captain shouldn't be prosecuted for the hit during Tuesday's game in Montreal. 

 

Former Bruin Brad Boyes took a pass from former Boston College star Nathan Gerbe and scored on a sprawling Tim Thomas with 1:16 left in overtime to lead the Sabres to a 4-3 win over the Bruins Thursday night at TD Garden. The Bruins have lost three straight after a season-best seven-game win streak.
