Tyler Seguin walked to his stall in the home dressing room at TD Garden Wednesday, saw a group of reporters from both Boston and Edmonton waiting, and jokingly said he would not be answering questions about Taylor Hall

It wasn’t a week ago that Nathan Horton was sitting at his stall at TD Garden, downtrodden amidst a quiet start to the season and revealing some interesting details of where he was mentally not right.

Will it be Jordan Caron or Benoit Pouliot in the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs? The latter is healthy and ready to return from his illness, but the former may have nabbed the job for himself for the time being.

It’s been a while since the happy-go-lucky Nathan Horton has been seen around Boston.

The Bruins have broken their losing streak, but have they broken out of the mess that still has them at the bottom of the Eastern Conference?

“What would you expect me to do? It’s a coach trying to find solutions. It’s as simple as that. … If it doesn’t [work], I’m telling you right now, you’re going to see changes again.” -- Claude Julien, Oct. 28.

Ladies and gentlemen, your last place Boston Bruins.   It doesn’t matter how many games into the season we are -- it just doesn’t sound right.

If you’ve followed the Bruins, you know they’re better than this. And if you’ve followed the league, you know that regardless of what is causing the team’s subpar start to the season (3-5-0), history shows it has to end very soon.

When the Bruins returned ninth overall pick Dougie Hamilton to the OHL in training camp, they were sending back a wiry but highly skilled defenseman who was 10 or more pounds away from being ready to potentially contribute at the NHL level.

This certainly wasn’t the start anyone had envisioned.

The season is young, but it’s safe to say the Bruins needed what they got Thursday night. What they got was a convincing win to follow a truly ugly loss Tuesday, and a win that saw their two underperforming power forwards get back on track.

Nathan Horton has been a hero in Boston since his first of three game-winning goals in the playoffs during the spring’s Stanley Cup run, but a new season has bought a new batch of frustrations for the B’s fi

The Bruins were minutes away from their first 0-3-0 stretch since February on Saturday before they got renewed hope – both for the game in Chicago and the early part of their schedule – in one play.

Perhaps because of what they saw with their baseball team this year, Boston sports fans can tend to have a hard time dealing with one of their beloved teams getting off to a slow start.

The Bruins have said time and time again that their intention is to give Tuukka Rask more than the 27 starts he got last season, but how about giving him some offense?

Claude Julien had an interesting choice to make when it came to the second line this season.

The banner has been raised, the ceremonies have concluded, and the first game of the season is in the books. After dropping the season-opener to the new look Flyers, 2-1, on Thursday, the Stanley Cup champions can put all the hoopla behind them and focus on nothing but hockey. Finally.

The Bruins are in for an interesting year as they look to defend their Stanley Cup title. Thursday will feature one last celebration of the team's historic 2010-11 season, but the Bruins will have their hands full after that. Here are five questions facing the team as the season begins:

After a short summer and a training camp that has absolutely flown by, the roster is set and the Bruins are ready to defend their title.

Tyler Seguin wasn’t happy about his un-Seguin-like numbers of a year ago, and as the young forward enters his second season, he feels he’s had enough experience, invested enough time in the weight room and spent enough observation hours in the press box last season to turn in a sophomore campaig

Last fall, the Bruins went on the ultimate team-building trip, and by June, they'd had the ultimate season. This year featured no trip to Europe, but the B's hope that their team-building activities Sunday and Monday did the trick.

Bruins winger Jordan Caron got a taste of everything last season, but he's hungry to do something he couldn't do a year ago: keep a job in the NHL.

The Bruins looked good through two periods Thursday, as they outshot the Senators, 30-10, in the game’s first 40 minutes and were leading, 1-0, thanks to a power play goal.

When the defending Stanley Cup champions bring back nearly the exact same roster for the next season, training camp isn’t exactly full of position battles.
