The Bruins need big things out of each and every one of their lines in the postseason, but no line figures to face as much scrutiny as the trio of David Krejci between Milan Lucic and

The Bruins underachieved in the regular season and limped into the playoffs, so what’s their punishment? Perhaps the most ideal first-round matchup they could have asked for. 
DJ Bean

Give the Bruins this: they're consistent. 
DJ Bean

The postseason hasn't been Milan Lucic's time to shine the last few years, yet the playoffs couldn't come soon enough for the struggling power forward.

The fast-paced, hectic, bonkers, whatever-you-want-to-call-it 48-game schedule is nearly over as the NHL enters the final week of the regular season.
DJ Bean

The regular season will end a week from Sunday, and right now the Bruins don’t look like they have a long postseason run ahead of them.

As the Bruins took the ice in darkness prior to the opening faceoff Wednesday night, the Garden felt like an oversized high school rink. As big a city as Boston is, the atmosphere was the perfect picture of a close community. It didn’t feel like the big, way-too-loud production that an NHL game usually is.

WILMINGTON -- Andrew Ference had gone home after Monday’s morning skate knowing that he was going to be a healthy scratch that night against the Senators.

Every team wants to hit its stride as the playoffs near. Being the best team in April goes a lot further than being the best team in January, so the final couple of weeks of the regular season count for a lot more than picking up points and determining playoff seeding.

It appears the rocky road the Bruins have traveled the last month and a half has gotten even worse.

Close your windows folks, because a big gust of Swedish intrigue appears headed for Boston in the form of forward Carl Soderberg.
DJ Bean
04/08/2013 - 10:46pm
Gregory Campbell was a top-six forward and it worked. It worked against a terrible team that has now lost five games in a row, but it worked. Let’s all acknowledge it.

If that was the last the Bruins have seen of the Canadiens this season, that’s a shame for both the B’s (they should want an opportunity to save face given that their start, finish and a lot of things in between were pretty embarrassing Saturday night) and hockey. 
DJ Bean
04/04/2013 - 11:31pm
If that was the bad Jaromir Jagr, the Bruins got one hell of a deal with the Stars. 
DJ Bean
04/03/2013 - 6:48pm
Wade Redden and Rob Flick probably are very nice people, but Wednesday was way more about who the Bruins lost than who they added. 
DJ Bean
04/02/2013 - 11:50pm
The Bruins wanted to add a goal-scorer, and now they have it in Jaromir Jagr.
DJ Bean
04/02/2013 - 3:18pm
Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin. Or, to put it in terms more appropriate for this season, Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin and he’s actually a Bruin and the Penguins haven’t taken him away from the Bruins.

Two days until the trade deadline and the biggest names you’re hearing aren’t exactly the biggest names.

Forget the discussion of who’s to blame between Jarome Iginla, Jay Feaster and Peter Chiarelli. Who’s to blame for what’s actually happening on the ice?
DJ Bean
03/28/2013 - 6:06pm
Peter Chiarelli handled the Jarome Iginla trade situation the best he could. Now he has less than a week to handle trades that will actually happen even better.

Just past midnight on Wednesday night/Thursday morning, Bruins fans won the Stanley Cup. They jumped up and down, smiled from ear to ear and waited in their pajamas for commissioner-in-this-scenario Jay Feaster to bring the Cup out onto the ice and hand it over to them.

"Now that I’ve been given this opportunity to be a big part of the puzzle, as much as I’ll have pressure from you guys, you definitely put pressure on yourself to perform. It’s up to me to elevate my game and bring it to a certain standard and that’s the responsibility of being an athlete. I know what that responsibility is now.

The Bruins can only hope that March is their worst month of the season. 
DJ Bean

Claude Julien finally got two points Thursday night to end a two-game skid, but it's safe to say he also got his team’s attention. 
DJ Bean
03/19/2013 - 11:58pm
Since when are the Bruins a nerve-wracking team to watch? Since when does a third-period lead mean a good chance of a nail-biter and a pretty good chance that they won’t come out of it with any points?
