The Bruins have six games remaining in the regular season.

Missing the playoffs would be a nightmare for the Bruins, but playing the Capitals in the first round wouldn’t be much better.

Everybody is fascinated with Frank Vatrano and they should be. On Tuesday, the Bruins finally brought the AHL’s leading goal-scorer back up to Boston.

If there’s such a thing as being good at getting traded, Lee Stempniak is.
DJ Bean

Turning the puck over too often is enough to get a young player benched or moved down in the lineup, and not just in Boston. That happens everywhere.

Reading into one game is silly. Reading into two games is ... just a little less silly? 
DJ Bean

Consider this Part II (perhaps of many) of the OK, Don and Cam, It Wasn’t THAT Bad series.

Blackhawks Thursday, Capitals Saturday. Two points Thursday, one point Saturday. Cowabunga.

The Bruins’ plan for this season has never been clear. Just when it seems it is, the other shoe drops. 
DJ Bean

There will be a time in our lives when we don’t discuss Loui Eriksson every second of every day. Maybe.  
DJ Bean

Hockey fans have known about Brett Connolly for what feels like forever. Not only was he a top pick in 2010, but he looks like he’s 36 years old.

As the old adage goes, if Martin Jones can be traded, anyone can be traded. 
DJ Bean
02/24/2016 - 2:36pm
If you’ve paid any attention to the Bruins this season, you know that their biggest need is: a good, young defenseman. 
DJ Bean
02/23/2016 - 2:17am
Loui Eriksson, as we all know because some dumb people don’t think he’s that good a player, is not flashy.
DJ Bean
02/17/2016 - 4:02am
The Bruins’ situation isn’t great. They aren’t good enough to call themselves a Cup contender and they aren’t bad enough to be an obvious seller.
DJ Bean
02/13/2016 - 6:44pm
With each goal he scores, more and more people think it: 
DJ Bean

Reading into one regular-season game, however great or terrible, is silly. How about reading into eight?
DJ Bean
02/08/2016 - 5:59pm
When the Bruins signed Matt Beleskey on the opening day of free agency, the question wasn’t whether he could be Milan Lucic.
DJ Bean
02/07/2016 - 1:18am
Brad Marchand often downplays his skill level, saying simple plays are all he has in his repertoire. 
DJ Bean

When the Bruins blew a 3-1 lead in the third period against the Sabres and went on to lose in regulation on Dec.
